Is nice... not

Taking a break from his 4+ year tirade on the Iraq War, Christopher Hitchens turns his sharp barbs against mega-hit Borat in Slate today. And, as much as I hate to admit it, he's right when he writes, "Among the 'cultural learnings of America for make benefit glorious nation of Kazakhstan' is the discovery that Americans are almost pedantic in their hospitality and politesse." A hilarious as it may be, what does it really say about a group of people calm enough to not only help a fellow dispose of his shit at during dinner, but provide him with tiolet flushing lessons?
