Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is laughing off any suggestion that her campaign is going down the You Tubes.
Over the past several days, more than a million viewers have watched an anonymously produced, caustic remake of Ridley Scott's "1984" ad for Apple's original MacIntosh computer. In it, a woman hurls a hammer through a screen with Clinton's image on it - in place of Big Brother's smashed visage.
Tuesday, Clinton said she would rather watch the "1984" clip - which she hasn't seen yet - than YouTube's video of her off-key rendition of the national anthem taped in Iowa earlier this year. That one also logged more than a million hits.
"I'm just happy if it's taking attention away from me singing - my singing was bad enough; I'm just happy nobody was tuning in to that," Clinton said.
Clinton, who has railed against the stultifying effects of TV and video-game consumption, later told NY1 News, "I might quibble a little bit about the content, but if we get more people, especially young people, thinking about politics, I'm happy about that."
