Borat is back. Via National Memo:

The film’s star and creator Sacha Baron Cohen understands the significance of his art form. That’s why his latest resurrection of the character is not focused on sight gags, but on the American political landscape.

Little else is known about Cohen’s new project, slated to premiere on Showtime in mid-July. This teaser clip from Cohen’s Twitter account features Borat’s unmistakable voice asking for an autograph from none other than GOP icon Dick Cheney.

Borat is always funny to listen to. But the former Bush VP’s behavior in the clip may send a chill up your spine.

Click for creepy time, eh?
