Charlie Sheen believes in 9/11 conspiracies; Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat gets Republican candidate to say Jews will go to hell

There's a nine minute Ali G Show clip wherein Borat checks out the American political scene, and in a subtle conversation about religion, gets one James Broadwater to say that Jews will go to hell because they aren't for Jesus. There's plenty more, but I am always amazed how easily Cohen can bring out the latent antisemite in Americans.

Charlie Sheen popped up on Alex Jones' radio show (for the uninitiated, Jones is one of the leading Internet Conspiracy Guys - infowars and prisonplanet are kinda required if you're into that sort of thing). Anyhow there was an interview that can be downloaded (mp3) and here is the summarized story about it.

"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning."

I listened to the interview on my iPod when I went to Target this morning, and there wasn't anything particularly new about the vaunted 9/11 conspiracies, such as the funny-looking hole in the Pentagon, the "pulling" of WTC 7, controlled demolition and all the rest. I am really not a believer in such things, although I will always be happy to note that the hole in the Pentagon just doesn't look right at all. But Jones and Sheen go through the basic motions of the Story, so it's sort of amusing.

Oh yah, PrisonPlanet currently claims that there is a media coverup, as the Associated Press refuses to run a wire story about Sheen's remarks. They say:

Mainstream Media Blackout On Sheen 9/11 Piece (March 22):

Controlled gatekeepers and delusional Neo-Cons attempt to kill story

.....We will not cease in our efforts to turn this into a massive story but we need your support. Get the story and e mail it out to every newspaper, newswire and TV news station in existence.

And also March 21: PrisonPlanet: Huge Reaction To Sheen 9/11 Story. Gawker: Escort-Loving Sitcom Actors Lend Credibility to 9/11 Doubters.

All right, I am officially amused by the Charlie Sheen Effort to Expose the 9/11 Conspiracy of March 2006. Everyone gets bonus points for originality.

On the flip side there is a massive story on 9/11 conspiracy theories from a skeptical perspective (although I have not read it yet) "The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll" in New York Magazine.

Well those are a couple brief and weird things. More later. Sorry things have been sparse but i've been trying to get the other sections of my life together, and watching bizarre Egyptian movies and stuff...
