Ron Paul thought he was involved with a serious interview, when lo and behold... Sasha Baron Cohen was stripping down to seduce him. Does it get your laugh? Apparently Ron Paul calls him a queer... what do you think of the whole thing?
Because this is an AMERICAN site, where us good AMERICANs all talk AMERICAN.
We don't have to accommodate all you faggoty European foreigners who criticize AMERICA with faggoty foreign words using fancy schmancy diacritical marks like umlauts and cedillas and tildes and graves and acutes, that no good AMERICAN would ever be caught dead using.
Is anyone one else annoyed by The New Yorker (an AMERICAN magazine) use of a diaeresis to spell words with double vowels (cooperation, reelection and preemption)? We know how to pronounce those words. We don't need the stinking The New Yorker to remind us.
While this is surely some of it, it certainly doesn't all come down to this. For example, please tell me how in the Rodeo scene in Borat the joke was simply that the people there weren't "hip enough" to get it. I understood it not as "haha, these people's ignorance blinds them from seeing I'm making fun of their ideology", but instead as "haha, these people are so mindlessly blinded by their ideology that they'll go along with anything for its sake". The former is "playground antics", while the latter is satire.
Of course I'm not saying that all of Cohen's stuff is ingenious satire or something. Of course there is a good bit of mindless crudity and "playground antics" in it.
I still think that many of you guys wouldn't so vehemently score Cohen if his stuff was directed against liberals.
