5. Simple reason
Edited on Wed Nov-22-06 10:51 PM by Richard D
The people in the borat movie had their faces on screen when they were made fools of. The people in Kramer's audience while insulted, do not have to live with friends and the world seeing them being asses, as does Kramer, btw. He should really sue himself.

Also, Kramer isn't making megabucks off of the people he insulted. Cohen is.
