'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Charlie Sheen for president?

A brand new poll reveals the results of the most unthinkable presidential election ever! Some voters would pick Charlie Sheen over President Obama and Sarah Palin!

This made me laugh because no one in their right mind would seriously want Charlie Sheen running our country. I think people were making more of a partisan political statement against the candidate they just don’t like - versus truly believing Charlie would make a good president.

What do you think? Post your thoughts below.

Other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today…

It turns out "American Idol" is TV’s biggest cash cow, and Gwyneth Paltrow is all set for a “Glee”-ful return!

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" live at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    Charlie for president? Cant be any worse than any of the other idiots weve voted in, in the last 20 yrs. Might even be better than Obama. Even a better choice than Palin. Just saying from the current track record...

    Bush in herited the mess from Clinton, but the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacle can be traced back to Jimmy Carter! Democrat comes from the Greek word for "dumba$$"!

    Hi I'm Fairy Larry the gay troller, I'm just mad about the "staring roll" because Charlie said he would let me be the star of his new midget porn movie. I was suppose to get the role and cornholed by all those midgets....

    When America becomes serious about who runs for president then we'll get someone worthy. CS isn't worthy of being president of himself.

    @dumb dumb:
    He-s referencing a skit from SNL in which Christopher Walken plays a music producer recording Blue Oyster Cult doing the song "Don't Fear The Reaper". Will Farrell plays the dude who plays the cowbell. Walken's character keeps saying "more cowbell". Google it, it's one of the funniest skits *ever*!

      Staring roll?! OKaaaay....now I understand why you are all for Charlie Sheen–you are as illiterate as he is! (more so perhaps, at least he can read a teleprompter without too much trouble) Maybe you meant starring role? In any case, it is bad enough we hear Charlie ranting and raving about how "special" he is on every news channel, and now some yo-yos want him for President...Now I will be having nightmares of a monster kaiser roll staring at me! LOL! Here's a thought people, learn how to spell and write before posting.

    Yeah ole' crack smoking Charlie for President......if he wants to represent something then he would check himself into intensive inpatient rehab and set an example for other struggling addicts. Torpedo tour? He might be going down via torpedo!
