    At the end of the day, the guy is just lame, and unfunny. Sorry to know that so many are amused by sophomoric antics.

    Sascha is just doing his job as a comedian, in portraying a "dictator" in a stereotypical form. He's just conforming the stereotypes that many people see or hear; when they see a real "dictator".

    I don't think he's making fun of Arabs per se. He's making fun of people like Ghaddaffi and Kim Jong Il who were real people.

    "practically" all aliens come to this country because they like it - others come because they want to blow it up. Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. I'm not amused by this character, but I will fight for his right to be as offensive as he wants. That is America.
