Apparently, the wingnuts are up-in-arms over the above poll results. Heh heh. Must hurt when they're confronted with the possibility that some Hollywood "out of touch" actor-type expresses an opinion more in line with what the majority of Americans really think.
Remember: the wingnuts are notorious for "freeping" online polls, named for the practice of Free Republic sending their users to the things to stack the votes. (Check out vote.com, to which I will not link, for an example of a site populated almost entirely by freepies -- and with loaded questions as well.) The left has been less successful at doing the same thing, but you'd think with the stink over these results in wingnuttia, they would have done their best to freep away, making these results even more interesting and encouraging.
There's more on Sheen's comments at the New York Post, although notice how they start off with the ad hominem attack, rather than just reporting the story:
CHARLIE Sheen has joined the 9/11 gone-bonkers brigade. The 'Two and a Half Men' star gave a bizarre interview on GGN Radio Network's conspiracy-minded 'The Alex Jones Show,' in which he suggested that the federal government was covering up what really' happened.Yeah, that there libuhral media sure is showing its bias with that lead, isn't it?
Incidentally, the above CNN poll was buried on their entertainment page, and not featured on their main page. Yesterday's main page poll was some Natalie Holloway question (which failed to feature the "Who Cares?" option) Today's is whether you support or oppose a law to make illegal immigrants felons -- perhaps a more pertinent question, but one that sounds more like it belongs on Lou Dobbs's Big Ol' Page of Xenophobia. That poll is currently at 57%-43% in favor of such a law, again making the Sheen poll results that much more intriguing.
Or at least something with which to annoy your conservative friends...
