In anticipation of a 2010 election that might see his own party push him aside, Governor Paterson is attempting to re-make himself. The first step is getting everyone in Albany to call him "Governor," not David. The rest of the process includes getting him to shave that silly beard, buying him fresh suits, getting him fresh haircuts, and trying, as difficult as it may be, to get him to cut out the wisecracks. That last one has proven difficult if Paterson's recent quip about taking a leak on the Legislature is any indication.
