Not Everyone In Kazahkstan Is A Moron

Only an idiot would think that people watching the movie "Borat" might think it accurately depicted Kazahkstan -- duh, it's a movie. But the tightly controlled country is officially angry. One government official, at least, seems to be operating in the real world. He has invited creator Sacha Baron-Cohen to visit the country and suggests people get a sense of humor. In an unintentionally hilarious riposte to the silliness of the movie, the man says Baron-Cohen could learn a lot about Kazahkstan.
Mr Aliyev told local news agency Kazakhstan Today that Cohen could learn "women drive cars, wine is made of grapes, and Jews are free to go to synagogues."
Sure, the Jews are free to go to synagogues -- it's easier to find them that way.
