Independents Support Charlie Sheen over Sarah Palin for President, according to Public Policy Polling

From Public Policy Polling via Third Party and Independent Daily:

We’ve found a lot of brutal poll numbers for Sarah Palin so far in 2011: down in South Dakota, down in South Carolina, down in Arizona, only up by 1 point in Texas, only up by 1 point in Nebraska to name a few. But this has to be the worst- independent voters say they would support Charlie Sheen over Palin for President by a 41/36 margin. Seriously. . . .

There’s been some speculation lately that Palin could run as an independent or third party candidate, although that apparently contradicts statements she has previously made elsewhere.

I haven’t seen any news of Charlie Sheen considering a Presidential run. Mark Seidenberg of the American Independent Party of California has said in numerous comments at IPR and Ballot Access News that their party is likely to put Sarah Palin’s husband Todd on their ballot for President, regardless of whether he likes it or not.

    I know I promised I’d stay away from IPR but I just have to say this real quick.

    Definitely Charlie Sheen. Winning. Charlie Sheen. Definitely.

    Seriously…..WT Actual F!?

    Oh and….yes…Charlie Sheen FTW!

    I feel a conspiracy theory coming on.

    Given that Wayne Allyn Root has been pre-emptively imitating Sheen’s meltdown persona for five years now, I have to wonder whether Sheen hired Root’s image consultant, or vice versa.

    Sheen 2012?

    The milquetoast LP was too chickenshit to run Aaron Russo in 2004 — have they really evolved their brains at all since then? Can enough of them process it?

    Paulie @ 12,

    Not sure I understand. Is that notation for “Duensing is to Sheen as Root is to Palin?”

    If so, I disagree. There are various axes along which we can compare them, but I don’t see any that roll up that way.

    Yes, Duensing and Sheen are both, to one degree or another, “9/11 Truthers” — but Root has a “conspiracy theory” mindset as well with the whole “Obama is a secret Marxist” thing. Palin’s personal persecution/pity party bit doesn’t really rise to the same level of irrationality Duensing/Sheen/Root’s obsessions.

    In terms of public presentation, I haven’t seen that much of Duensing, but Root and Sheen are a lot more like each other than either is like Palin.

    Palin sometimes comes off as clueless in a sort of Dan Quayle kind of way, and she’s a little more narcissistic than many politicians, but for all-out batshit insane narcissism … well, run any random clip of Sheen and any random clip of Root next to any random clip of Palin . “One of these things is not like the other two” will quickly become apparent.

    I guess the final axis would be how well-known they are.

    Root is more well-known than Duensing. He may even be in a different league of well-known than Duensing. But they’re closer to each other on those terms than either one of them is to Sheen or Palin. If Sheen and Palin are Major League Baseball, then the separation between Duensing and Root is something like the gap between 1st grade tee-ball and 2nd or 3rd grade Little League.

    In this installment of IDIOCRACY, we ponder whether President Sheen will have The Goddesses living in the WH. And whether his running mate, Jimmy McMillan, will complain that the rent is too damn high at Number One Observatory Circle (which has no rent).

    Martin Sheen will express confusion over this turn of events, as, he says, the West Wing script did not anticipate any of this.

    Charlie Sheen, as first president post the Dec. 21, 2012 Apocalypse, will learn that the Little Green Men were actually behind 9/11 and that Dick Cheney is actually their robot. Obama will leave town after the November elections, doing workshops with Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright on applying Alinsky-isms to alien occupying forces. The once-again-mortified Dan Quayle, the surprise R nominee, will retreat to an ID potato farm, where he will finally learn how to spell the plural form of the word.

    Senate Majority Leader Paulie and Speaker Knapp will argue about whether the silos should be decommissioned in 6 months or 1 year.

    Milnes and Andy will have separate protests locations across from the WH, both holding “I was right” banners.

    I will be laughing with Howard Roark.

    My vote is for Charlie over Sarah. He is not a globalist and has not sold his soul to Mr. Kissinger.

  8. Andy

    Charlie Sheen (real name: Carlos Estevez) may be a guy who has partied a lot and has recently gone through a “meltdown,” but even so he’d still be a better person to hold the office of President than Sarah Palin or just about any other well known politician you can think of outside of Ron Paul.

    Yes.

    If so, I disagree.

    It made sense when I was drunk :-)

    I guess the final axis would be how well-known they are.

    Yes, the equation assumed that Palin and Sheen are the better known ones. That much I can remember.

    I know Root has called himself the male Sarah Palin – at least I think I remember that.

    And I would not be surprised if Duensing identifies with Sheen to some extent.

    I am temperamentally unsuited to be a majority leader.

    If the Libertarians ever win, I might become a Catholic Trotskyist or something :-)

    On the surface, you seem to be correct :-P

    “And I would not be surprised if Duensing identifies with Sheen to some extent.”

    me_ Jim isnt ANYTHING good or bad like Sheen except for 1 area , ego. ROFL , Jims barely not a dork , and thats only because i hung out with him soo long.

  13. Don Lake, FYI, not necessarily a unilateral endorcement

    whatever // Mar 18, 2011:

    “Sheen 2012? ……. LP was too chickenshit to run Aaron Russo in 2004 ……….”

    [Lake: still a fond golden memory among the remaining seventeen or so Deform Party faithful ........... per Russo -------- not Sheen. And (of course) Nightmare Nightingale chatted with Russo personally ------ a couple of years after he died. Hey, or so she said, in late 2009!]

    Bob@16,

    “Speaker Knapp”

    That is among the most horrifying expressions I’ve ever seen in print.

    At this point, probably the only guy who could get me back into electoral politics would be Doug Stanhope. If he runs for president and wins, I’ll apply for a job as his press secretary, and every morning briefing will consist of a new version of “The Aristocrats.”

  15. Harry V. Joiner

    @28-29. Good sense of humor, yes, but possibly low self-esteem. Which is kinda hot in itself.

  16. Robert Capozzi

    tk, not so horrifying to me. Quite unlikely, but at the rate things are going these days, even the highly unlikely seems within the realm of semi-plausible.

    Don’t know about you, but it seems world events are spinning faster now than anytime in history. On some level, Emanuel is right…”You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

    Stanhope and Penn Jillette are interesting.

  17. Thomas L. Knapp

    Bob @ 33,

    I guess you have a less developed sense of horror than I do.

    But “Speaker Knapp” is not just “quite unlikely,” it’s impossible. If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve, if conscripted I will put a pistol in my mouth and pull the trigger. It ain’t gonna happen.

  18. Robert Capozzi

    tk, hmm, “less developed”? Maybe just “different”?

    What can I say, given the choice between Pelosi, Boehner or Knapp, I’d choose Knapp, except I certainly don’t want an early, self-inflicted demise for you!

    Maybe Chartier or Long, then….
