Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry has it’s panties all up in ruffle and is threatening to sue comedian Sacha Baron Cohen aka Ali G over the character of Borat Sagdiyev, of Throw the Jew Down the Well” fame, saying that he ridicules Kazakhstan’s people.
In a brilliant play, Borat responds:
I like to state I have no connection with Mr Cohen.
I support my government’s decision to sue this Jew.
Since the 2003, Kazakhstan is as civilized as any country in the world. Women can now travel on inside of bus. Homosexuals have no longer to wear blue hats. And age of consent has been raised to eight years old.

In an added twist, CNN’s reporting of this story proves once and for all that CNN and Reuters are not in fact, run by Jews, to wit – “Responding in character as Borat, Cohen, who is Jewish, said …” Cohen? Jewish? You don’t say …
