Pirro's rocky start

The New York State Democratic Committee is already running an online ad showing Pirro's 30 second gap during her Senate announcement.

This could be an effective tactic against Pirro...I'm sure New Yorkers of all people have no patience for scripted politicians with no depth in the tradition of George W. Bush. Look at her response to a question on Iraq:
When asked about Iraq and the question of troop withdrawals -- a decided majority of New Yorkers oppose the U.S. involvement there -- she demurred.

"I certainly would leave that up to the experts who understand the military and what we need to do," she said. "The most important thing we can do is finish the job that we went over there to start."

This could be quite a letdown of a race for all those who have viewed Pirro as a heavyweight challenger. As they say in baseball, you can look pretty good on paper, but you still have to play the game.

I guess the Pirro people can look at it this way, they can only go up from here on out.
