NBC sues McCain campaign over Palin photo
In a move that caught even hardened political watchers by surprise,
NBC president Steve Capus announced today that his company was suing
the McCain campaign for releasing a photo of Sen. McCain hugging his
vice-presidential choice, Alaska governer Sarah Palin.
Mr. Capus alleged that the photograph is actually from a Seinfeld episode
and shows the character of Justin Pitt hugging Elaine Benes, played by
Julia Louis-Dreyfus. "What will they pull next?", asked an
angry Capus. "Kramer pretending to be George Bush?"
Sen. McCain's office could not be reached for comment. When informed about
the lawsuit, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus responded with "Get OUT!".
