Paterson on Meet The Press

David Paterson was on Meet The Press yesterday. David Gregory tried to get him to say that the White House told him to not run for governor next year:

Here's another clip. He attributes his negative poll numbers to the difficult circumstances the state has been facing. (Last week he said Andrew Cuomo would have low poll numbers, too, if he were governor now.)

SNL also went back to the Paterson well last week. That Paterson New Jersey joke isn't getting any funnier -- no matter how many times they use it.

The clip is embedded after the jump...

Apparently they didn't get the memo about him shaving off his mustache.

Comments

Did anyone see Spitzer on Real Time with Bill Maher this past Friday? I gotta say, he was so charming, articulate and smart, it made me remember why I proudly voted for him back in 2006, and made me consider voting for him again if he decided to run for office. That's right. I think I'd take him back after all. That dirty dog!

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.
