I really wanted Cohen to hold just one more interview, this last time with Ahmadinejad when he arrived for his recent UN session, before retiring the "Borat" character. That would have been so funny you could have made a full-length movie about it! Imagine Borat skipping around avoiding contact with the FBI men and Iranian bodyguards (?) assigned to protect the visiting Iranian president, while toting a satchel with a baby goat's head and chickens sticking out of it, with all the associated noises? All the while trying to get Dr. Ahmadinejad to expound his brilliance even further on everything from the Holocaust to human rights in Iran. The sidewalks leading up to the former World Trade Center site that Ahmadinejad wanted so badly to visit could have been lined on the gound with overlapping Iranian, North Korean, and Syrian flags and he could have been seen trying to make the right political steps along the way. Too bad!
