*New York Governor David A. Paterson’s office has criticized a skit on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live in which Paterson, who is legally blind, was portrayed as disoriented and buffoon-like.
The governor’s communications director, Risa B. Heller, issued a statement Sunday saying:
“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.” NY Times
