Ruddick seems to be one of several characters Baron Cohen will play on Who Is America?

Provocative British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's new television show is making headlines in the United States even before its first episode is aired, with conservative figures Sarah Palin and Joe Walsh saying they were duped by him.

Who Is America? debuts on Showtime this Sunday at 9PM CST. "I am Dr Billy Wayne Ruddick, founder/ceo/accountant of Truthbrary.org and it was I that interviewed you". She was greeted by a man in a wheelchair, presumably Cohen, who identified himself as a veteran and proceeded to conduct "a long interview full of Hollywoodism's disrespect and sarcasm".

Palin claimed that the production team from the prank show deliberately dropped her and her daughter at the wrong airport "knowing we'd miss all flights back home to Alaska".

"As an American, I would never hide my identity and deceive others only to mock and ridicule them as this Showtime series is created to do".

‘Game of Thrones’ earns a leading 22 Emmy Award nominations
In the best drama series category, there's a decent chance the award goes to a show written by someone Jewish. The Emmy nominations are in and HBO's " Game of Thrones " leads the pack with 22 nominations.

Walsh included the hashtag #boycottShowtime on his series of tweets, while Palin asked Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate the proceeds from the show "to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets". "(Coincidentaly, just like our Great President, I was sadly prevented from joining the regular army on account of bone spurs bein discovered in my testies)".

"Ruddick, a totally real individual who only joined Twitter back in April, went on to tell Palin he "[has] always admired you for TELLING THE TRUTH about Obama's birth certificate and the location of Russian Federation. "But ma'am, I do believe you have been hit by a bullsh*t grenade and are now bleedin" FAKE NEWS.

"You used to hunt the most risky animals in the country, like wolves and people on welfare", Ruddick added. "So why hunt a fine citizen journalist like myself?" the letter states.

"Palin said that she was offered a "'legit opportunity" to honour American Vets and contribute to a "legit Showtime historical documentary'" and that it "was requested of me via a speakers bureau".
