When??? Oh like many years ago... I mean, the Wayans', South Park, The Simpsons, just to name a few have used EVERYONE.... I repeat... EVERYONE as fodder for their jokes. In this case, the only real difference is this man is not only blind, and African American, but also a democrat.
There have been a few blind comedians who have used their disability in their acts, to hilarious results. In quite a few television series that has ever been, there has been a stint on the main character becoming blind for some reason or not, and if the show was a sitcom, it was to hilarious results.
I'm quite certain you laughed your butt off when SNL poked fun at Palin, McCain, and quite a few other politicians, that is if you even watched it. But in this case, the butt of the jokes was someone who you like.... So now it is not funny. Such narrow-mindedness!
I voted for McCain and Palin. I laugh a lot at some jokes and skits. However, disparaging the handicapped crosses the line!

He's no "Quota" he is an elected official.Obama is the "commie". He's no loser. He's Governor of one of the major states in the union.

Here's a GREAT way to have fun. Get some really dark glasses. Then get a white cane. Just get a length of 1/2 white PVC pipe at Home Depot for a few pennies. Then hop in your car and drive. Keep the driver's window down and use your "white cane" to "feel" where you are as you drive around. It might cause a few serious accidents but it is LOADS of fun.

"Quotas" don't get elected. He's an american. No one said the world is responsible for Paterson's blindness. In arguendo,the world might be responsible for his blindness with all the toxins and bad medicines everyone is exposed to. We are all responsible for our manners and our respect or lack thereof for others. You are a deviant!

I am legally blind in one eye. I drive,read,work,swim and do everything you can do.I have had no cars accidents in over 25 years. Our governor is quite able to perform his duties and would make a fine President!

Even the old TV show M.A.S.H. had Alan Alda's character "Hawkeye" as a time when he went blind. And even after he regained his sight, he attempted to fool the nurses into thinking he had re-lost his sight. And I also remember one episode that had the great, Tom Sullivan (who is blind by the way) who was portraying a blinded soldier. Who had cracked some jokes about his blindness. And speaking of Tom Sullivan, he has been on numerous sitcoms as a blind man, who has had been part of many funny situations.

All example of comedic portrayal of fictitional characters,not a real-life Governor who is in office.
