Psychologists studying the idiot behaviour of both PM Gordon Brown, and New York Governor David Paterson have concluded that besides both being visually impaired, they seem to have much deeper rooted handicaps lodged into their psyche and more commonly called in the street vernacular, 'shit for brains.'
Brown has been taking a thrashing for alleged abuse of staff, and occasionally kicking his cat, and more often striking out at reporters in fits of rage.
Paterson, appointed as Governor after former Pussy Hound Elliot Spitzer was embroiled in a paid hooker scandal, has been on the defensive ever since.
Paterson, legally blind, still has an eye for the women as he has admitted to having several affairs, and was recently seen in NEW JERSEY connoodling with a comely constituent who was allegedly teaching him braille, a claim upheld by wait staff and patrons who said the Gov had his "hands all over her."
More recently Dave has been involved in the shady awarding of a gambling license to a group with no former gambling experience but including political allies and even the rapper Jay Z.
As elections near, just as in the UK, the scandals continue to pile up with the latest being the Gov was forced to suspend a trusted aid accused of having the state police, and perhaps the governor, intervene in a domestic abuse case.
Several Tabloids have taken to calling the Dysfunctional Duo "The PM of S&M", and the "Luv Gov", both monikers said to be hurting their chances of re election by the already satiated taxpayers. But maybe not.
