Dem's fighting words, Rupert.

Gov. David Paterson is considering challenging News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch at Jeopardy.

Paterson made a few jabs at Murdoch following his comment linking the dysfunctional state of New York politics with Paterson’s blindness and his inability to read Braille.

Murdoch apologized to the governor Wednesday, but Paterson didn't mind taking a few overtime shots at the media mogul.

“I think I would be willing to be on 'Jeopardy' with Mr. Murdoch any time," Paterson joked on an early-morning radio interview on the John Gambling show on WOR-AM, according to the NY Daily News.

The governor may be legally blind but his academic achievements certainly overshadow that fact. He graduated high school in three years and went to Columbia. He also went to law school and worked in the Queens DA’s office.

He has overcome many obstacles in life, which will be one of the themes of his 2010 campaign.

But then Paterson took one more shot, asking Gambling: "By the way, does Mr. Murdoch read Braille?"
