Since a certain Mr. Sagdiyev (Borat- to his friends, fans and foes) blasted his way into the mainstream lexicon and my heart, I have been aching for more of his fearless, merciless tackling of the elephant in the room. When I saw my first Borat clip from the Ali G Show (What is the best way to defend from a Jew?), I went a little wild. I howled, I screamed, I shot up like a bolt of lightning as it cracks in the sky. Only the light never went out, it’s still there, stoking the flames of the fire of my soul, my urge to create.

You may ask why, you may understand or you may not care, but the beloved and despised character of Borat played so nobly by the Jew-Brit wit-bitch Sacha Baron Cohen (has he been knighted yet?) rips the band-aid off the stinking wounds of our battered but not beaten collective psyche, spraying the noxious odor of intolerance everywhere. Discrimination is our common denominator. There’s a lot of hate and ignorance to dissipate (not decimate, as in ‘revenge’), and when ‘Bo’ (rhymes with shmo) points his long, hairy finger; the laughs are on us all.

GOOD NEWS FLASH for the future: Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Bruno’- the gay, Austrian fashion journalist- will be unleashed on the big screens on May 15, 2009. Wait for it! According to some reports, it may be titled: Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt. Be still my beating heart.
