Charlie Sheen Has Gone Cuckoo Bananas

220px-CharlieSheenMarch2009.jpgActor Charlie Sheen wrote a fantasy interview with the President of the United States, Barack Obama at wacky taffy conspiracist Alex Jonessite.

Wow. Where do we begin? In his fantasy interview, he asks for 30-minutes and “they said I could have 20.”

For the record, our fantasy interview with POTUS – at least an hour. Possibly 90-minutes.

So in this 20-minute interview Sheen gets out a nearly 4000-word diatribe about 9/11 cover-ups etc. It’s not possible that many words can fit into 20-minutes. Now we have our own conspiracy.

Anyway, the POTUS compliments Sheen on his show. “I have it Tivo’d on Air Force One. Nice break from the traveling press corps.”

He really captured the voice of Barack Obama there.

The thing that is so creepy about this fictional inquiry is that it’s told like it really happened and then at the end there is a little disclaimer saying that it hasn’t happened yet. But by all the comments, no one actually saw the disclaimer.

Because they already BELIEVE ANYTHING. Why not 4000-words in a 20-minute interview?

Even the awkward POTUS saying he has to go at the end is weird and self-congratulatory:

PBO – Well Charlie I can’t say this hasn’t been interesting. As I said earlier you’ve showed up today focused and organized. Regardless how I feel about the material you’ve presented, I must commend your dedication and zeal. However, our time here is up.

(the President rises from his chair , I do the same).

Who’s Sheen’s publicist?!
