Quite The Comeback

David Paterson, New York's current Lt. Governor (and soon to be Governor) had his first press conference since the whole Spitzer nightmare broke. He's quite the witty guy. He started with a couple of zingers.
Mr. Paterson entered the room at 2:06 p.m. and faced warm applause. The full text of Mr. Paterson’s initial statement, before taking questions, is below:

Thank you very much. If most of you weren’t being paid I’d be flattered by that. [Laughter]

... I am prepared and on Monday, at 1 p.m., I will have the oath of office administered to me in the Assembly chamber. Most of you are invited.
He then continued his statement, and then took questions. One reporter, trying to get the whole mess out of the way, asked him if Mr. Paterson had ever visited a prostitute. His answer was cute, to say the least:
Mr. Paterson quipped: Only the lobbyists. [Laughter] That’s why we want campaign finance. [Laughter]
UPDATE: I added the link... duh...
