Good grief. And, this parody from the New York Governor who was so upset with Saturday Night Live’s parody of him.

“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. The Governor is sure that Saturday Night Live, with all of its talent, can find a way to be funny without being offensive. Knowing the Governor, he might even have some suggestions himself.”

Here is the original ad to which David Paterson is responding so you can see the context.

Is there ANY doubt that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will rin against this MORON? Now, will Attorney General Andrew Cuomo change his mind?

Poll Watch: New York Voters Disapprove of Governor David Paterson 60 – 28 Per Cent

New York Gov. David Paterson, center, Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, D-Queens, left, and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan, right, listen to a reporter’s question during a news conference at the Capitol in Albany, N.Y., Friday, March 27, 2009. Paterson and legislative leaders have agreed to ease drug laws that were once among the harshest in the nation and led a movement more than 30 years ago toward mandatory prison terms

Hello, New York Governor Rudy Giuliani.

New York State voters disapprove 60 – 28 percent of the job Gov. David Paterson is doing, the lowest approval ever for a New York Governor, and say 63 – 22 percent that he does not deserve to be elected to a full four-year term, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Gov. Paterson’s approval is so low that he should announce now that he won’t run for election to a four-year term next year, 53 percent of voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll, while 39 percent say he can restore his reputation and should run next year. Even Democrats say 49 – 45 percent that he should drop out of the race now.

New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, with a near-record high 75 – 14 percent approval rating, tops Paterson in a Democratic primary 61 – 18 percent.

In a general election, Republican Rudolph Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, tops Paterson 53 – 32 percent.

Cuomo tops Giuliani 53 – 36 percent in a head-to-head matchup.

But, will Andrew Cuomo be persuaded to run?

Anyone want to be with these continuing poor poll numbers that President Obama appoints Paterson to some meaningless administration job thus clearing the path for Cuomo?

Or some other more popular Democrat?

And, will that in turn force Rudy from the race?

Stay tuned…..

Rush Limbaugh and Leaving New York

Jon Stewart yesterday on The Daily Show

Rush Limbaugh says he is leaving New York due to excess taxation.

Conservative standard bearer Rush Limbaugh told his radio audience that if Governor David Paterson’s new budget passes, he’ll move his show out of New York.

He told listeners, “I don’t know what the breaking point is … when people leave, I’m leaving … I’ll sell my condominium, I’ll sell my apartment. I’m going to get out of there totally. This is just absurd.”

Limbaugh is just one of many New Yorkers angry about the Governor’s weekend proposal to hike taxes for those making more than $250,000. The controversial talking head, who came clean about an addiction to pain killers in October 2003, is well in tune to his reputation in the Big Apple.

“New York is probably going to celebrate that I’m not going to come back … They hate me, so they’re happy I’m not coming back,” he said on his radio show. “They’re going to praise Paterson for driving me out, even though I am rarely there anyway.”

Limbaugh quoted a statement made by Mayor Bloomberg years ago saying that, “there are 40-50,000 taxpayers in this city of 8 million that pay so much tax they essentially support the city. If even 5,000 of them leave because of the tax hikes, there’ll be a big problem.”

This is certainly Limbaugh’s perogative and the fact that New York Governor is being reported to have said that if he knew that Rush would leave the state then he would have raised taxes earlier certainly cannot be settling for high income New York earners.

Besides left-wing comedian Jon Stewart can pay his fair share instead.
