In the wake of the Blagojevich imbroglio, "Saturday Night Live" this weekend turned its attention to New York Gov. David Paterson, who will be appointing someone to fill the the Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton.
SNL portrayed Paterson as a blind, bumbling, ill-prepared governor with a (possibly ongoing?) penchant for cocaine.
And for some reason, Paterson didn't find it funny. According to a press release from his office:"The governor engages in humor all the time, and he can certainly take a joke. However, this particular Saturday' Night Live' skit unfortunately chose to ridicule people with physical disabilities and imply that disabled people are incapable of having jobs with serious responsibilities. The governor is sure that Saturday' Night Live,' with all of its talent, can find a way to be funny without being offensive. Knowing the governor, he might even have some suggestions himself."
