This week New York Governor David Paterson partied it up all night at a club "just hours before delivering news [to the legislature] of soaring budget deficits and lagging revenues from the recent millionaire's tax." The New York Post further reports: "Stagnant poll numbers, lackluster campaign fund-raising and the threat of a challenge within his own party didn't keep the Democratic governor from enjoying himself at the midweek fiesta."
By the way, the Post's descriptions of this fool are priceless: "The party-hearty Paterson"; "The night-owl chief executive." But the funniest part of this story? That would be the quote from Brooklyn blogger Tionna Smalls -- the person who spoiled the Governor's party by calling Gawker.com after she witnessed Paterson gettin' down at this big shindig: "I have some advice for him. Stay his ass out the clubs." Actually, that's some good advice for most of us (certainly for me). As I always try to remind myself, nothing good ever happens in public after midnight. And kids: Never chew tobacco either.
