Three Cheers For David Patterson

Spitzer, Spitzer, Spitzer. Enough about Eliot Spitzer—let's talk about David Patterson.

Lt. Governor David Patterson will become the governor of New York when Eliot Spitzer's resignation goes through. Not only will he be the first African-American governor of New York, he'll also be the first legally blind governor in the United States. Screw Spitzer and the hookers—this guy ran the New York marathon in 1999. (Again, he's legally blind.) Now that's exciting!

David Patterson could be my new favorite person. Let's just hope he doesn't have a thing for the 'tutes.
