Here's "Saturday Night Live's" strikingly offensive skit featuring Fred Armisen playing New York Gov. David Paterson:
Paterson has objected to the bumbling blind man jokes -- shopworn stuff like holding a chart upside down -- but really the skit is offensive even beyond that particular aspect.
The skit suggests that Paterson will appoint someone to the U.S. Senate with disabilities -- "they don't have to be blind," he says, but he prefers somebody with "something off about them."
"I'm tired of all these fancy two-eyed smart-alecks from the big city running the show," says Armisen, yet again playing a black politician, as Paterson.
Armisen's Patersen describes himself as comically unprepared for the job of governor, "a blind man who loves cocaine." He also makes lots of Jersey jokes.
