    I think it's Salem, Virginia, since the article was in the Roanoake Times.
    Oh, you mean you haven't heard of Salem, VA? :MandJ: I lived near there for awhile.

    I have never seen the show. But I would be appalled and sickened if someone defamed my national athem in my presence like that. Maybe I'm missing something, but I found no humor in what this guy did.

    I wouldn't advise getting all anti-American with cowboys.
    Look, I didn't find that stunt funny at all, and I like Bush.

    But that is hilarious. I can only imagine the ass-beating those guys handed out. :MandJ:
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I wasn't suggesting that was a good thing. In fact, it was despicable.

    But there weren't any more demonstrations.

    They got what they deserved. Don't mock our country. Wait. That goes towards my extreme belief of freedom of expression. Dammit.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Do you not even know the premise of the Ali G show, and of the Borat character? His character revolves around being the fish out of water foreigner, always falling into the bad graces of his hosts because of his 'lost in translation' misunderstanding of their traditions. He's an equal opportunity offender, often riling up feminists, the anti-defamation league, religious activists, Republicans and Democrats alike. If viewed from the context of his character, it would be far easier to understand. Was Monty Python subversive and heretical when they satirized British customs, establishment, traditions etc...? It's satire, and I could see where those who don't know the premise wouldn't find it funny (and where some who do wouldn't find this particulat bit funny either), but it's harmless and solely meant for humor, not malice.

    I'm an ardent Bush supporter, who reveres our military, and who strongly supports their efforts in Iraq... but I realize that this is satire. Somewhat tasteless, but still satire.

    Maybe I just don't understand, but a foreigner wearing an American Flag shirt, decieving his generous host under the premise of thanking America, and then making an ass out of himself and angering people is not funny.

    It wasn't satire. It was sickening.
