True Love

I have about 23 or 24 True Loves floating around in this great big world and one of them is Sacha Baron Cohen.

Kazakhstan is all upset about the Borat movie, no surprise. President Bush decided to use his time wisely and invite Kazak president Nursultan Nazarbayev to discuss the country's image (Daily Mail, yes, I know), since the most important thing our president can do right now is disucss a British comedian's movie that isn't even coming out until later this fall.

What does Borat have to say about all of this?

"In response to Mr. Ashykbayev's comments, I'd like to state I have no connection with Mr. Cohen and fully support my Government's decision to sue this Jew.

"Since the 2003 Tuleyakiv reforms, Kazakhstan is as civilized as any other country in the world.

"Women can now travel on inside of bus, homosexuals no longer have to wear blue hats, and age of consent has been raised to eight years old."

The sad thing is, the character of Borat is a joke - no one really believes those things about Kazakhstan. The things he gets average Americans to say and do - well, we bring that upon ourselves. And that's the point.
