The following item was originally published in today's edition of the New York Post:Bob Dole has just discovered the Osbournes — and he hates them. PAGE SIX has learned that the curmudgeonly also-ran will blast Ozzy and his spawn on Sunday's "60 Minutes". In his ongoing series of point-counterpoints with Bill Clinton, Dole asks, "Does Hollywood still think Ozzy Osbourne is funny now that he's shipped his underage son [Jack] off to drug rehab? America is awash in reality TV. And the reality is it's debasing and degrading." The ex-senator then blasts Clinton directly, saying, "Mr. President, don't your showbiz pals realize the consequences? They package dysfunctional people like the Osbournes. Giggle at the coarseness and the crimes. And sink lower for higher ratings. For eight years, you treated Hollywood like your own piggy bank. Now how about joining me in demanding a little responsibility?" In his reply, Bubba singles out Fox for its racy programming — where Monica Lewinsky recently launched the reality series "Mr. Personality".
