Culture: “Two & a Half Men” not so bad without Charlie Sheen

  • Ashton Kutcher didn’t bomb during premiere? According to USA Today, the introduction of his new character to “Two and A Half Men” was nearly seamless. Sure, they had to start with a funeral for Charlie Sheen’s legacy, but the show picked up with the same tone as before. Whether or not that’s a good thing, we’re still not sure of. source

Culture: What Charlie Sheen thinks about his replacement, Ashton Kutcher

  • nice When asked to react to news that Ashton Kutcher would replace Sheen on “Two and a Half Men,” he had this to say: “Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer.” And he has way more followers than Charlie.
  • not-so-nice However, Chuckie had more to say to the producers of the show. “Enjoy the show, America. Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB,” he said. Hear that? That’s the sound of a man with a chip on his shoulder. source

Politics: Donald Trump combines best qualities of Ross Perot, Charle Sheen

  • I think the Republicans are very concerned that I [may] run as an independent. I could also possibly win as an independent, otherwise I wouldn’t do it. I’m not doing it for any other reason. I like winning.
  • Donald Trump • Suggesting he would pull a Ross Perot and run for president independently if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination. With a little Charlie Sheen at the end. Oh God. Will ol’ Sideshow Don quit it? source

Culture: Torpedo insufficiently violent, truthful for Detroit

  • NO Charlie Sheen isn’t great at putting together a live show source
  • » We’re tentative about even broaching this, as we got tired and sick of the media’s Sheen-o-rama much quicker than most. But even if only as a means to interrupt the flow of globally important, sometimes dire news for a little diversionary breather, this New York Times article about the disastrous debut of Sheen’s live show (characteristically called Violent Torpedo of Truth) last night is worth a look. We kept thinking while reading this about what Bill Maher predicted two weeks ago: “He’ll come out, he’ll say his catchphrase ‘duh, winning,’ the place will go nuts, and then it will be a long, slow march to 9:30.” It looks like he nailed it.

  • Charlie Sheen still makes more sense than John Boehner, because at least Charlie Sheen is winning.
  • Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips • Expressing dissatisfaction with the Speaker of the House. A topical comparison, sure, but is it really accurate to say that Charlie Sheen is “winning?” source

World: “General Petraeus” and “Charlie Sheen” share same sentence

  • General Petraeus is giving us the Charlie Sheen counter-insurgency strategy, which is to give exclusive interviews to every major network, and to keep saying ‘we’re winning’ and hope the public actually agrees with you.
  • Rep. Lynn Woolsy (D-CA) • Quoting Rolling Stone editor Michael Hastings, who made the comparison at a Congressional Progressive Caucus meeting, on the House Floor. Woolsey wants US troops out of Afghanistan, pronto, and hasn’t taken kindly to the optimism in Petraeus’ recent media blitz. This isn’t the first time she’s come down on Petraeus, the commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan; in 2010, she accused the general of using “weasel words” to dodge a question about the troops’ withdrawal date. source

Culture: Recap: The people currently living with Charlie Sheen right now

  • one former model, nanny and graphic designer named Natalie Kenly
  • one porn star named Bree Olson (Her real name? Rachel Oberlin)
  • zero kids; they were taken away yesterday by police officials source
  • » What happened? For obvious reasons, Sheen’s estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, filed a restraining order against the Alex Jones devotee and then took the twins from Sheen and his “goddesses” with the help of a sheriff’s deputy. Sheen plans to use legal action to get the kids back. But considering he’s now unemployed and living with a porn star, this oughta be tough.

Culture: Piers Morgan says Charlie Sheen “the Che Guevera of television”

  • I’m super-bitchin’ [and] I don’t believe myself to be an addict.
  • Charlie Sheen • In the key quote in his whole rant with Piers Morgan, which was a big score for him because, well, he was sort of a surprise guest. This certainly is going to be a punch-up for Piers’ ratings, and of course, because the CNN host delves in the soft stuff like his predecessor Larry King did, he used the phrase “the Che Guevera of television” to describe Charlie. We want this on a T-Shirt, stat. source

  • Who seriously thought this was a good idea? OK, we know, he’s friends with Charlie Sheen. But seriously, if you let this guy talk for 30 seconds, you realize that he shouldn’t be allowed within 12 feet of this show. Still hilarious, though – he’s name-dropping the World Trade Center in his rant about Charlie Sheen for some reason. Blood tests. Urine tests! He name-dropped! The TSA! Police state! Why did they let him on this show? source
