Governor David Paterson Will Be on SNL This Weekend


In an attempt to have his very own Sarah Palin moment — i.e., be mocked mercilessly to his face by skilled impressionists in order to show he is a likable human — lame-duck governor David Paterson will appear on Saturday Night Live's season premiere this weekend. Since 2008, when Paterson took office, SNL has regularly deployed Fred Armisen to make fun of the governor. This should be a real opportunity to see if partially blind jokes play as well next to a person who is really partially blind. [City Room/NYT]
