Gov. Paterson is counting on a Madonna-blessed higher power to lead him out of the mess in Albany.
The lame-duck governor has begun wearing a red string kabbalah bracelet – just like the Material Girl – in an eyebrow-raising bid to deflect ill will.
“It was explained to the governor that the red string is a symbol of protection [that] wards off problems and tribulations,” Paterson spokesman Morgan Hook said.
“His attitude was that he’ll take all the help he can get.”
