What do you think?

Everyone is up in arms about SNL's latest skit poking fun at New York Governor David Paterson. I don't normally poke fun at the handi-capable but this skit was hilarious.

First off, Paterson is one of the smartest people in politics. He is also one of the funniest because he is the only dude I have ever known to admit to having extramarital affairs and being a coke head while in office. Now, folks are all pissed off because he's blind.

If he had 20/20 vision, we would have been falling over laughing at that skit. Take a look:

I thought handi-capable people wanted to be treated like everyone else. With that comes being made fun of just like everybody else. Truth be told, I think they laugh at us behind our backs.
But I guess we'll never know, unless somebody writes a mov-. Let me get back to ya'll on this one.

I was dying laughing when I saw this mess too... people need to stop getting so damn sensitive about everything... handicap or not when you become a public figure your fair game for people to make fun of you.

i was laughing, too. i hope folk are laughing just as hard when snl or someone else start cracking seriously on obama, cuz you know it's gonna happen. equal opportunity means equal across the board.

I agree with you all. The first rule of media law is anyone who thrusts themself into the public eye is fair game.
@ Nikki, I said something similar on my other blog about growing a thick skin as far as Obama is concerned. He's going to be over criticized, over scrutinized, over everything so we got to gird our loins and laugh a little.

I'm on the fence. I think it's like the family rule--You can talk about your family all day long, but an outsider can't. Chris Rock can make Black jokes, but Dane Cook can't without raising some eyebrows. So I think it may be the same situation here.
