Sheen Endorses Dean
Martin Sheen, who pretends to be Josiah Bartlet, president of
the United States, on NBC’s lib-fest “The West Wing,” gave his
own endorsement, and seemingly that of his fictional character,
to Vermont Democrat Howard Dean.
Dean recently took
a visit to the “West Wing” set in D.C. He and his campaign staff
are jazzed about the Sheen/Bartlet support, because Dean and the
faux prez are former governors of a New England state, Democrats
married to physicians, and far-left lovers of socialist ideas.
Sheen thinks Dean
is “the best possible hope for the Democrats because he's not
afraid to lose,” Glennis Liberty, the actor's publicist, told
the Associated Press.

called Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush a "white-knuckle
drunk" in a speech at a California treatment center Saturday.
A recovering substance
abuser, Sheen expressed concern that Bush never received counseling
after his 1976 arrest for drunken driving. "He's still in denial
about it," said Sheen. "You have got to be in a program. I did
not make up the rules about that."

Sheen said he
believed President Bush (news - web sites) and his administration
"made up their minds a long time ago that they're going to have
this war." Asked what he thought would motivate Bush to go to
war if Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction, Sheen
said, "I think he'd like to hand his father Saddam Hussein (news

the 1991 Gulf War .

that is what's needed?
SHEEN: I don't
understand how I would be wrong. Would there not be countless
innocent civilians killed in Iraq with a pre-emptive strike? Do
you discount that? Is that not right enough to speak at now?
