Blind Governor Allegedly Lies About Intent to Pay For Ticket to Watch World Series

Serious news item: Independent counsel (and former New York Court of Appeals judge) Judith Kaye today issued a report concluding that New York's Governor David Paterson misled investigators regarding his intent to pay for tickets to last year's World Series.

Does it make sense for Paterson to have intended to lie about paying, when he couldn't possibly have had the intent to WATCH the game in the first place?

This is going to be grist for a Saturday Night Live skit...I am sure of it.

I can see Weekend Update's Seth Meyers now, asking Fred Armisen (playing DP):

"How do you get charged for taking free World Series tickets? I mean, you're blind! You can't watch the game! You mean you couldn't just watch it on TV...or listen to it on the radio?"

While obstruction of justice is serious and could imperil an elected official's political career in some cases, here the controversy -- in which the underlying issue is a baseball ticket -- seems plainly insignificant and a waste of scarce resources better spent pursuing more serious corporate fraud, bonafide corruption and violent crimes.
