As America became a Borat Movie of Itself, I Couldn’t Help but Wonder: If those that stormed the capital perceive themselves to be Americans defending democracy, and us Donkeys or moderate Donkey hybrids perceive OURSELVES to be Americans defending democracy, all of us operating under completely different realities and versions of the truth, then what is American? And who is American? And why and when and where is American? Is it in a discount bin at a museum gift shop, does an old Native American man in Arizona keep it in his garage? Did it sink with a ship on the way over? WAS IT EVER ACTUALLY HERE?
