So when will SBC give up da Borat yo?

Jewish Television Programming in Kazakhstan

The popular Kazakh channel "Habar" has launched a television series on Judaism, Jewish traditions, and history. The program is spearheaded by the Chabad Lubavitch representative to Kazakhstan, Rabbi Menahem Mendel Gershovitz.

I think this is an excellent magnification of how much Cohen’s act means to exposing the difference between reality and what we think is reality. The prez of Kazakhstan should instead be laughing his butt off at the rest of the world for falling for the act instead of being angered. After all, the less they resemble it the bigger the gulf between them and everyone else as long as everyone keeps buying SBC’s incredible act.

Though I do wish he’d never ever wear that thong again.

(extra points to those who note the date on this and whether the mainstream media has actually picked up on it)
