Before 'The Dictator': Sacha Baron Cohen Interviewing Politicians As Ali G (VIDEO)

Hear me now. Long before Sacha Baron Cohen delved into politics and government as Admiral General Aladeen in "The Dictator," he spent a lot of time interviewing real politicians and public servants under the guise of Ali G for "Da Ali G Show."

Ali G asks the hard-hitting questions that politicians rarely have to face on camera, such as, "Was it worth fighting a war over BLTs?" and, "Do you think people should get more welfare the longer they're on welfare?" Check out Baron Cohen interviewing the likes of Newt Gingrich, Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan, and be sure to vote for your favorite interview. Respect.
