Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Ali G and Borat ...

I'd heard about this several months ago, but had yet to see it. Cohen as Borat, a TV host from Kazakhstan, sings a song to a group of regulars at a country-western bar. Cohen, a brilliant satirist, wants to see how the crowd reacts to a blatantly anti-semitic song. Seems like they warmed up to the idea. To see "Throw the Jew Down the Well" click on this link.

Cohen, despite the fact that he's Jewish, earned an admonishment from the anti-Defamation League for this stunt.
