This is sure to improve Hollywood's image ...

... as "out of touch." Actor Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Story.

A couple "HUH?"s:

1) Subheadline: "Calls for truly independent investigation, joins growing ranks of prominent credible whistleblowers."

2) "We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.

OK, Chuck.

This is a guy who was married to a beautiful woman and still couldn't keep his pants zipped.

I think he gets it from his dad, who as honorary mayor of Malibu declared the town a "nuclear-free zone, a sanctuary for aliens and the homeless and a protected environment for all life, wild and tame."

Given Mr. Sheen's vast experience in international relations and his post doctoral work, I think we should listen carefully...

Here is the thing, if your baseline for credibility is George Bush, you have to admit that Sheen - given his level of experience in international relations and his post doctoral work - is at least as credible as Bush.

Here is another point of comparison. Sheen was in "Red Dawn" where he pretended to be a nationalist guerilla. Bush pretended to be in the Texas Air National Guard. So far still roughly similar in experience I'd say.

Now, had Bush ever seen "Red Dawn" - he might have expected a nationalist insurgency in Iraq. In that case I'd give Bush the slight edge in credibility. But since Bush never saw "Red Dawn" you have to say it is a toss up.

Jason, you would have hit a home run if you'd remembered that Sheen was in Navy Seals, where he gained extensive knowledge of urban warfare and counter-terrorism.

Apart from that, it's laughable to characterise the Ba'athists' attempt to restore Sunni supremacy over Iraq as a nationalist insurgency.

Posted by: G Rex at March 22, 2006 01:15 PM

Um, Jason, please tell me you're joking.

Bush didn't "pretend" to be in the national guard. He was in it. He is a pilot, remember?

Would you equate someone with a high school education with a Harvard MBA and a bachelors from Yale?

Enough strawman. Give some reason and/or facts, it makes things more interesting than partisan sniping.

I dunno Duffy, they let that Taliban guy into Yale with less than a HS education, maybe that's not such a good qualifier any more.

Yes, actors should never become involved in politics, unless they are Republicans.

Bush vs Sheen

Education/Gentleman's "C" = point for Bush
Pretend SEAL or Fighter Pilot = Both
Reformed drunk/drug user = Both
Speaks intelligently (when given a script) = point for Sheen

It looks like a toss up to me.

"It's laughable to characterise the Ba'athists' attempt to restore Sunni supremacy over Iraq as a nationalist insurgency"

--No silly, its neither. Its called a civil war. And our brave young men and women are in the middle of it.

I don't really agree with Sheen, but I Bush has lost any and all credibility with me, so its kind of a toss up...

Posted by: Mike McKain at March 23, 2006 07:15 PM

As long as sunni and shia have a common enemy in the good ole' U.S of A - it is a nationalist insurgency.

Am I the only one who has seen "Red Dawn"? Remeber the epilogue?

I guess I need to spell it out. Sheen's "Wolverines" and the North Creek "Bears" had a common enemy in the communists. Once the communists were all killed they went back to being sworn (gridiron) enemies.
