SNL vs. Gov. Paterson of New York

Saturday's SNL featured a "Weekend Update" skit poking-fun at New York's blind governor, David Paterson. I thought the jokes about his drug use were fair game. Making fun of him because he's blind was not.
But 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."
