SNL Mocks Governor Paterson (VIDEO, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

SNL's Weekend Update targeted Governor Paterson again last night, this time over his being asked to step aside in the 2010 governor's race.

In the comedy bit, Fred Armisen as Paterson likens his accidental ascension to governor to "finding one of those magical monkey paws that grants wishes -- I was psyched to get it but then horrible things started happening right away."

For those who feel that Armisen's portrayal of Paterson has been offensive to the blind, last night won't change any minds. Paterson is mocked throughout for his sight-deficiency, including the idea that when in DC, he would try to stick his "ATM card into the Vietnam Memorial."
