Who is America Sarah Palin

Before the premiere of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime series Who Is America?, Sarah Palin made press rounds chastising Cohen for taking advantage of her.

Once Who Is America? premiered, we saw the character in question: Billy Wayne Ruddick, Jr., PhD. Ruddick does not purport to be a veteran, but does ride a motorized scooter to conserve his energy.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day star Joe Morton was on a Television Critics Association panel for his new CBS show God Friended Me.
