    Waaa lets all feel sorry for dictators now. And arent itilans(sp) and chinesse ppl always stereotyped too or does this writer jus want to say things to support her argument.


    he's just exercising his right to free speech. to all the cunts who whimper when they see a stereotype being your mind, then go fuck yourself. in that order


    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.


    Wah! Everyone is a sterotype.




    "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.
