Now why, in this year of our Lord, in this time in American politics, after more than two decades of faux political comedy shows humiliating their interviewees, would Dick Cheney agree to jokingly sign a waterboard kit in front of a television camera? The answer would seem to be Cohen's unflagging ability as an interviewer. That, and the fact Dick Cheney has continued to be a vocal proponent of waterboarding, so why not have some goof-around fun with it? Wa wa wee wa, indeed.
Update: On Monday, Showtime dropped another promo for the Sacha Baron Cohen's new series and released a photo of Cohen's new journalist character.
