Seriously Painful to See

No, I’m not talking about the latest Charlie Sheen video. Those were great. He’s filling Thunderdomes across the country with raucous winners all paying good money for “Charlie” content. Those free samples everyone derided him for giving away last week look to be paying off quite well for him this week. There’s a word for that.

What is seriously painful to see are the pitiful, trollish, throw Charlie Sheen under the bus, so-called-unbiased-media (SCUM) slanders being lobbed his way everyday. The latest outrage comes courtesy of the New York Times, under the headline: Charlie Sheen, Bernie Madoff and Your Money

I’d normally block quote and debunk such a story, piece by piece, but it’s not necessary for the purpose of plainly pointing out that any analogy between Charlie Sheen and Bernie Madoff is guaranteed to be just another tedious twist of trollish logic designed to boost NYTimes web traffic by using Charlie’s name to attract attention to a story defaming him and his supporters.

I do have a minor complaint with Charlie though. He’s making me jump through hoops to get a position as his summer social media intern. Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy to have made it to the second round of people under consideration, but a bit disappointed that he didn’t sense the aura of tiger blood emanating from my initial application and hire me immediately.
