This guy simply isn't funny. Going to the middle east and acting like a fool thinking he is being funny.

Shameful

I'm pretty sure he was trying -- just not so sure he succeeded.

SBC is a very smart guy and talented performer -- using that intelligence and talent to make stupid people look stupid seems to me kind of a waste.

I don't think it is a waste. I think he is warrior. Borat was not at all funny but he showed that southerners were SO racist that they would rather have a bag of sht at dinner than a black person. He went into an arena filled with uber patriots and called GW a moron. He is brave and he is a genius. I can't wait to see Bruno.

See... I didn't get that out of "Borat". He did show that SOME Southerners are racist. Many Japanese and many Russians are racist too ... what's the point?

Having lived in many places around the world (including the American South) I would disagree with the idea that Americans (from South or North) are disproportionately MORE racist than any other people in the world. In my experience -- much less so than most.

I'm pretty sure if I showed up to a dinner at a New York Intellectual's home with a very unattractive and inappropriately dressed, obvious prostitute, as my guest (regardless of colour) I might provoke a similar reaction.

It might be brave to provoke people into reaction when they realize that is what you're trying to do. Most of the people who were the victims of his pranks in the film "Borat" just tolerated him as you would a very dim-witted child.

Sorry to generalize. All southerners are not racist. But I have lived in the south too and there are a lot of racists there. Not so many here in Pacific NW. There were a lot of people that tolerated him and were not racist or sexist. That was relevant too. Like the Jewish couple. They just appeared patient.

They were just patiently waiting for their quarter.

cause even the a-rabs believe in moses and virgin mary and other judeo-christian myths that, supposedly, took place in isreal...the a-rabs just think mohamead/whatever is more important.
