Former New York governor and "He has a radio show?" host David Paterson was dropped from his gig yesterday by new ownership, and will instead figure out something else eventually. "As governor, he was oftentimes in position to dish it out, so he is certainly someone who can take it," said Paterson's spokesperson. "As someone who had to do significant housecleaning when he took over as chief executive, these moves by the new management come as no surprise. In anticipation of this eventuality, Governor Paterson has been exploring a number of different options both in and out of the media and will be working towards finalizing some of those options after the New Year." Old pal Eliot Spitzer — also bored — is probably down for anything.
