Liberals are supposed to love Sascha Baron Cohen’s new movie “The Dictator,” or what Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday calls his “latest send-up of political manners and American exceptionalism.” His dictator describes himself as the last in a long line of now-fallen dictators: “Kim, Gaddafi, Saddam, Cheney.” Ha.

It sounds almost like Bill Moyers makes a cameo (or a "choice Arabic rendition" of Moyers). Hornaday also liked this exchange:
