But is the capital Astana or Almaty?

I’m offended by Ali G’s Borat character, mostly because I know what Kazakh people look like, and that’s not it.

I have to confess, however, that there are aspects of the gag that make me chuckle. If only he’d kept the character Moldovan or Albanian.

The government of Kazakhstan has cried foul, and I’d say rightfully so. But the coolest one of all is the daughter of President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who said, “We should not be afraid of humor.”
