Borat Causes Diplomatic Row

We've watched Da Ali G show with some amazement as Ali G interviews people and gets the most amazing responses when they don't realize it's a put-on. Now, another Sacha Baron Cohen character, Borat, is causing a diplomatic uproar as Kazakhstan is seriously angered at how thoroughly he has lampooned their country - and they are after President Bush to do something about it.

Needless to say, HBO is bound to be loving the publicity.
