So sue me!

Sasha Baron Cohen, also known as Ali G, Bruno, and most memorably as Borat ("Number two television reporter of Kazakhstan Television"), is facing a lawsuit from the Kazakh government, which finds his politically incorrect questioning of interviewees repellant. The New York Times reports that Cohen—as—Borat is urging them on. "Sue the Jew" he reportedly said.

This is one fight they cannot win. Having already darkly intimated that Borat is serving a political agenda of unseen forces, they have convicted themselves.

Cohen is one of the best satirists of our age. If you are not familiar with his work, you should be.
