VIDEO: Sacha Baron Cohen's dictator likes Mitt Romney

Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays a dictator in his upcoming movie, dressed in character yesterday and told reporters at a press conference that he liked "Mitchell Romney."

"He has the makings of a great dictator.

He is incredibly wealthy but pays no taxes, and it's not much of a leap to go from firing people to firing squads and from putting pets on the top of a car to putting political dissidents on top of them."

If Santorum were running, though, Cohen -- whose name in the movie is General Shabazz Aladeen -- says he'd be backing Rick.

"I would say Santorum, despite his liberal views, but since he is out of the running, I don't know.

In terms of policies, I would have to say the Republicans if they could only become a little less extreme."
