Blind Man’s Buff

I’ll have to speak to Guido about this. We seem to have missed a memo. Or am I speaking for just myself here?

Albany, NY ā€” Less than 24 hours after he was sworn in to replace a governor who left office in disgrace because of a prostitution scandal, Gov. David A. Paterson admitted that he had had relationships with women other than his wife, including one who is on the state payroll.Mr. Paterson made the disclosure at a news conference at the State Capitol, accompanied by his wife, Michelle, who Mr. Paterson said had also been unfaithful. — NY Times

“It wasn’t intentional on my part,” Paterson insisted. The Governor, who is legally blind, says he had no idea that the woman in bed with him wasn’t his wife “until it was really too late to go back.” He added that it became something of a practical joke: “I think several of the ladies got together a betting pool to see which one could fool me for the longest time. When word got around and my wife found out, she just sort of set out on her own, if you know what I mean.”

Aides defended the couples’ candor. “And he didn’t pay $4,000 – $5,000, either,” one noted.

    Personally, I like a parsimonius governor who takes his girlfriends to the Days Inn . . . he knows how to balance a budget, I say.

    The expression, “Who you gonna believe — me or your own lyin’ eyes?” never had better or truer application than this.

    Speaking of eyes, nice to see you resurfaced, er, ‘Squathole’.

    Dude. You canNOT snark a blind man. There are rules. Standards.

  5. Squathole says:

    Ferefe: As an open-minded and equal opportunity snarker, I find the concept of exempting any individual on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, shoe size, lactation capacity, appearance, etc. unacceptably discriminatory.

    Go ahead. Encourage me to tell some Helen Keller jokes.

    Hey Squats! I’d LOVE to hear those jokes. But — I can’t!
