In the wake of a second parody, Democratic Gov. David Paterson is unhappy because he thinks the long time comedy show Saturday Night Live is insensitive.
Point #1-Well, Duh!? Just what rock has he been living under to suddenly come to this realization?
The legally blind governor, having been parodied as being bumbling, feels the programs “continued parodies hurt disabled people not in a position to fight back.”
Point #2-You mean like the governor of the second largest state in the nation, who merely by calling a press conference can have his every little grievance aired? I don’t see where you fit the position of “powerless”, and I don’t recall SNL taking shots like this at private figures (note I said “figures”, not “citizens”).
Apparently Governor Paterson has not been watching SNL over time. They parody everyone’s behavior, and if you happen to be in position of political visibility…well…let’s just say that puts you in a target rich environment.
I do think it somewhat humorous that the parody of the governor is being done…by his constituents!
I think he would have done well to let this complaint slide…but take a look at the clip in the link above, and draw your own conclusions.
