SACHA BARON COHEN: FROM BORAT TO ABBIE HOFFMAN

Abbiecutborat
Apparently Bruno the fashionista is on the back burner for Sacha Baron Cohen now that he’s signed to play counter-culture activist Abbie Hoffman in Steven Spielberg’s “The Trial of the Chicago Seven.” The Borat creator actually has a lot in common with Hoffman. Abbie was known for his “guerilla theater” tactics in which he drummed up publicity for his causes by being funny – not violent. He knew how to use the media – once he got publicity for bursting into the headquarters of Con Edison, throwing soot in the air and on employees clothing. He said it was more effective than signing petitions for cleaner air. Abbie insisted that laughter is a better learning tool than serious speeches and from what we saw of Borat – Cohen agrees. By the way, Sacha will be taking home a six million dollar paycheck. Hooray for capitalism.

    being a dumb bimbo that i am, i just love borat to death; because corporation tells me to. and i do what they say, and believe what they tell me, such as big mac’s from McDonald’s are healthy and make me look sexy.
    and abby hoffman was such a kewl sexy jewish man, i just LOVED how he protested. such protests insinuating my uncle rightfully never came back from Vietnam, and my other uncle who did come back alive but missing both legs and his right arm was sooo justified.
    yes, your right, abby and anyone is so kewl when they do 2 year old poopies.

    yes mateos daughters is right. we women are strong and intellegent because we allow jewish men to dictate to us what is cool.
    this is because we are empowered and strong. letting jews like abby hoffman, gloria steinem and the others dictate to us what we want.
    rock on sisTa

    He has had his 15 minutes of fame, and after the first 3 minutes, the rest was boring.

    That, Mr. Billy Goat, was well said, and basically that’s about all you can say about him. Sock away all the money you can now, Sacha…..over and out.

    Borat are for some people and not every one wants one but some people do have passion and want and that means that is something they really like and are down for in so many ways and it keeps your head warm and it looks good when it matches your other cloths and it is good to wear during winter and spring.

We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
