A new Pizza Hut t-v commercial lampooning
Hillary Rodham Clinton hits the airwaves Saturday as the World Series debuts.

But some are crying foul.

On the board of Pizza Hut's parent company is a (b) billionaire backer of Clinton's likely Senate-race rival, New York City Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani.

A Clinton spokesman says it's quite a set of coincidences.

But (b) billionaire Kenneth Langone (lan-GOHN') says he had no idea about the ad.

In the commercial, a blonde woman clad in a business suit and sporting a heavy Southern accent extolls the virtues of the "Big New Yorker" pizza.

She drawls, "How do I know so much about New York pizza? ... `cause New York, I want to be your next senator!"
