Borat Bleg

I saw it. Am thinking of writing about it. Question: Has anybody seen or read about an interview during his promotion tour with Sacha Baron Cohen in which he wasn’t in his Borat persona? Every place I saw him, he was acting like Borat. I think this was absolutely brilliant on his part because it protected him from explaining what he thinks the meaning of his movie is. Anyway, did anyone see him break character in the last few weeks? I haven’t.

Update: He has given at least two interviews. To The Independent in Britain and to Rolling Stone.  

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute and is a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, is on sale now.
