A SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE comedy sketch mocking New York's Governor DAVID PATERSON's blindness and past cocaine use has left the politician seething.
SNL star Fred Arnison impersonated the Democrat during Saturday's (13Dec08) show, wandering lost around the studio and jokingly attempting to make a drug deal, unaware he was on camera.
And Paterson - who only took over the role this year (07) when previous Governor Eliot Spitzer was found to having cheated on his wife with a prostitute - isn't happy.
He tells the New York Daily News, "I can take a joke. But only 37 per cent of disabled people are working and I'm afraid that that kind of third grade humour certainly adds to this atmosphere.
"Let's just say I don't think it helped."
