Saturday Night Live Skit Skewers New York Governor David Paterson. He's A Little Pissed

12-16-08

Lighten up gov’ner, it’s just harmless fun. You know like when the bunch of clowns over at SNL mercilessly hammered away at Sarah Palin? Isn’t it interesting when a Democrat gets slapped around on a comedy show how the whiners for whatever advocacy group able to claim injury come out of the woodwork? For those that don’t know Paterson he is the guy that took over in the state of New York after the previous governor, Eliot Spitzer, was caught doinkin’ a high priced call girl young enough to be his daughter.

Paterson, no stranger to instances of fooling around on his wife, was evidently a little bit upset over the little skit performed by the SNL crew and spoke out about it along with others that were offended by what they claimed was a mocking of blind people.

Now remember, it’s just fine and dandy to have a good time making fun of Republicans like George Bush, Dick Cheney and Palin as though they are bumbling idiots but sheesh pick on ol governor Paterson and the crocodile tears start to flowin’.

Gov. Paterson didn’t see the humor in a “Saturday Night Live” bit that mocked his blindness. (-get it? didn’t see the humor…-ed.)

(snip)Paterson and advocates for the visually impaired didn’t appreciate stock blind jokes that had Armisen pretending to be disoriented and wandering aimlessly.

“I can take a joke,” Paterson told reporters.

But he called the SNL spoof a “third-grade depiction of people and the way they look” that could lead others to believe that “disability goes hand-in-hand with an inability to run a government or business.”

The skit could leave viewers with the impression that blind Americans cannot be competent employees, advocates for the disabled said.

“When you have a perception problem like we have, you take these things a little more seriously,” said Chris Danielsen, spokesman for the National Federation of the Blind.

“We have 70 percent unemployment – and it’s not because we can’t work. Obviously, the governor of New York is blind, and he’s doing the job. Whenever you have a portrayal that calls the basic capacity of [blind people] into question, that’s a potential problem.”

There you have it. Whenever there is an opportunity to track someone down that could be offended in this day and age the media will trip all over itself to find them. I do wonder just how long these videos will be available considering NBC has been know to sanitize or remove SNL skits that get the liberals’ panties in a bunch.

I don’t normally watch this stupid show and rarely find any of their crap the least bit funny but I have to admit I cracked up over these two vids.

I’m looking forward to when the gang at SNL grows a big enough sack to pull an Obama stunt.
