N.Y. Candidate Seeks Springsteen Boycott

Upset with Bruce Springsteen 's effort to oust President Bush from the White House, the New York Conservative Party's candidate for the U.S. Senate is launching a "Boycott the Boss" television commercial.

"He thinks making millions with a song-and-dance routine allows him to tell you how to vote," Marilyn O'Grady says in the 30-second spot. "Here's my vote: Boycott the Boss. If you don't buy his politics, don't buy his music."

A spokesman for O'Grady, Howard Lim, would not say how much the Long Island's ophthalmologist's campaign was spending on the commercial, in which she says, "I stand with President Bush and it's time to tame the liberal elite."

Somehow I don't see Bruce saying, "She thinks being an opthalmologist allows her to tell you how to vote. Here's my vote: Boycott the Opthalmologist. If you don't buy her politics, don't let her mess with your vision."
