The late night comedy show that did those dead on impersonations of Sarah Palin? Funny during the campaign, but at least one high-profile politician isn't laughing now.
Seems that New York Governor David Paterson doesn't appreciate Saturday Night Live's treatment of him. Before you label him a spoilsport, this isn't like Mark Wahlberg's complaint. He didn't like it when the writers had a doofus-like Wahlberg impersonator talking to goats.
The Governor could have a legitimate concern. His backers say the show lampooned his disability.
Further, when Armisen held a chart -- more stereotypical humor: He held it upside down.
In the skit Armisen discussed his plans to replace Senator Hillary Clinton. The qualifications?
"Whoever is appointed senator must -- like me -- be caught totally off guard and be comically unprepared to take office," he said. "Come on, I'm a blind man who loves cocaine who was suddenly appointed governor of New York. My life is an actual plot from a Richard Pryor movie."
