Here’s one endorsement that Mitt Romney’s press shop won’t be sending out in an email blast: The Republican presidential frontrunner has won the support of Adm. Gen. Shabazz Aladeen, aka actor Sacha Baron Cohen.
"He has the makings of a great dictator," Cohen, speaking in character, told reporters at a New York press conference Monday to promote his upcoming film The Dictator. "He is incredibly wealthy but pays no taxes, and it's not much of a leap to go from firing people to firing squads and from putting pets on the top of a car to putting political dissidents on the top of them. He taught me how to do that."
