It's not just me that think's the Borat character is cruel and the humour very unpleasant and ugly. It surprises me how much media coverage he's had. It seems to be part of the new trend in acceptable but hateful right-wing thinking which masquerades as comedy (eg. Little Britain, Catherine Tate, Bo selecta etc), which is maybe more sinister than it was in the '60s and '70s when at least it was overt as opposed to disingenuous... Freud once said there's no such thing as a joke.

I probably sound like a loony leftie now (and I hate those too!)
