Desperate, Inaccurate, and the End of Fred Armisen

It’s no secret that the comedic quality has been steadily declining from Saturday Night Live. Reason being, the show has taken solid writing and performing, and replaced them with ludicrous “Family Guy” scenarios that don’t make any sense.

Let me preface this: I dislike Andy Samberg tremendously.  For the same reasons why I don’t like Dane Cook.  Over the top, not clever, poo-poo kah-kah humor.

But every guy has a fall man.

Unfortunately, no one told Fred Armisen this, as he took stage as legally blind New York Governor David Paterson.  His performance landed him in hot water, as the skit has been negatively received by blind advocacy groups, and Paterson himself.  The general finding of the Weekend Update sketch was its inaccuracy and over-exaggeration.  Worst of all, the National Federation of the Blind has called it an attack on blind-Americans.

So, they’re saying that SNL is engaging in un-funny domestic terrorism?

I’m not really in this for the out rage, or the moral injustice that plagues innocent blind-Americans.  (By the by, if they’re blind, how can they see the offensiveness of the sketch?)  I’m writing this simply because Armisen is the first to fall.  And we are one member closer to getting Andy Samberg!

Watch the real Paterson on The Colbert Report, and Armisen’s Paterson:
