New York Gov. Paterson Slams Saturday Night Live Parody Skit

New York Governor David Paterson spoke out against the Saturday Night Live skit that mocked his blindness. "I can take a joke," Paterson told the Daily News on Sunday. "But only 37% of disabled people are working, and I'm afraid that that kind of third-grade humor certainly adds to this atmosphere." Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen impersonated the blind governor in a skit that not only poked fun at his handicap but also his past drug use, and portrayed him as a disoriented politician "caught totally off guard and...comically unprepared to take office." The National Federation of the Blind also spoke out against the SNL skit. "The biggest problem faced by blind people is not blindness itself, but the stereotypes held by the general public," spokesman Chris Danielsen said. "The idea that blind people are incapable of the simplest tasks and are perpetually disoriented and befuddled is absolutely wrong."

VIDEO VIRUS: Saturday Night Live‘s ‘Mother-Humpin’ Palin Rap

After weeks of jokes made at her expense, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin finally made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live. The Republican vice-presidential nominee poked fun at herself in the opening sketch as she watched SNL alum Tina Fey give another dead-on impersonation and "pageant walk" during a press conference. Palin also helped Alec Baldwin recall the nickname she had been dubbed in the press -"Caribou Barbie." But the most memorable sketch was a very pregnant Amy Poehler rapping, in place of Palin, "all the mavericks in the house put your hands up" and boasting "I shoot a mother-humpin' moose eight days of the week!"

Ethnicity Revealed: Jessica Szhor, Vanessa Hudgens And Many Others

What's their ethnicity? It's the question on everyone's mind and Blindie has done a little racial profiling to satisfy your inquiring minds. Here is the racial scoop on the most ambiguous ethnic people in Hollywood: Jessica Szohr: Gossip Girl's not-so-rich gal pal had us all guessing when she kept offering up ethnic delights from pierogies to souvlaki on the show. The real deal is that Szohr boasts a mix of African American, Caucasian, and Hungarian. Vanessa Hudgens: The High School Musical triple threat touts a mother of Filipino descent and a father of Irish and Native American heritage. Nicole Scherzinger: The Pussycat Doll was born in Hawaii to a Filipino father and a Hawaiian/Russian mother.
