    Sacha Baron Cohen stolen valor.

    This has to be one of the most egregious cases of stolen valor ever. This fuckwit pretended to be a disabled American Vet in order to dupeSarah Palin.

    Her response was spot on.

    That phrase most assuredly doesn't mean what you think it means.

    I love it everytime Sarah's made to look like the backwoods hillbilly she is.

    And with a son and son-in-law like hers I wouldn't worry about other soldiers. They're both an embarrassment to veterans.

    It's what Ali G has always done. Who could forget Borat's cringeworthy meeting with Baptists?

    I hope the backlash is severe as in canceling the show.

    There are certain ways to "prank" someone. Stolen Valor isn't it.

    Also, purposely making sure her and her daughter missed their flight home is a shit move.

    The Stolen Valor Act of 2013 was signed by President Barack Obama on June 3, 2013. The Act makes it a federal crime to fraudulently claim to be a recipient of certain military decorations or medals in order to obtain money, property, or other tangible benefit.

    Would claiming to be a veteran without making claim to '"certain military decorations" amount to Stolen Valor?

    They were dropped off at the wrong airport. Do you have any evidence this was intentional?

    Good question. I could see how it might. Would need to take a close look at the statute and how it defines the terms.

    There's also the broader (non-legal) definition of the term which would almost certainly apply here.
