'Borat - Cohen:' Looking for Jew haters in all the wrong places

"Borat" is many things: a sidesplitting triumph of slapstick and scatology, a runaway moneymaker and budding franchise, the worst thing to happen to Kazakhstan since the Mongol hordes, and, as columnist David Brooks astutely points out, a supreme display of elite snobbery reveling in the humiliation of the hoaxed hillbilly.

But it is one thing more, something Brooks alluded to in passing but that requires at least one elaboration: an unintentionally revealing demonstration of the unfortunate attitude many have toward working-class American Christians, especially evangelicals.

My thoughts exactly, Mr. Krauthammer. Where were you when I posted this on Nov. 13th: Noo Yawkah gives Borat knuckle sandwich - My knuckles are feeling the love
