This is exactly what’s wrong with “Truthers” of any kind … just because Charlie Sheen drank the kool aid once, does not mean he has to use every opportunity to expose these…

On Charlie Sheen’s new cooking show Winning Recipes, Charlie shows you how to cook using all of the power of a warlock.
Last week, I noticed an uptick in people listening to Alice In Chains and it occurred right along with my own renewed interest in the band, and Charlie Sheen’s supposed meltdown. I…
Did anyone watch Charlie Sheen’s new live video show “Sheen’s Korner” on UStream last night? The slogan is “You’re either in Sheen’s Korner or with the trolls” (is he secretly an admirer of George W. Bush’s rhetorical style?). For those of you who missed it, you can catch up now:
Well, we discovered this week Charlie Sheen does have a superpower: getting a million Twitter followers in 25 hours. If you’d like to take a break from the serious news of the week, very funny post from Laura Hudson on Comics Alliance:

“I just think that he’s somebody going through a hard time who got clean,” said Jones. “It’s wrong from them to be prodding him and demonizing him and trying to make him blow up. That’s actually what I believe’s going on here … Charlie’s tired of being held up like the devil.”
But, the discussion quickly goes off-topic as Jones relentlessly hypes his website and simultaneously rails against the TSA, financial institutions that are “bankrupting” the country and George W.

Alex Jones is getting a lot of mainstream attention today because of recent remarks made by Charlies Sheen on Jones’ radio show that caused Sheen’s popular sitcom Two and a Half Men…
