Actors Are Dumb

President Bartlet is a 9/11 Truther?

So, President Bartlet has revealed himself as a 9/11 Truther. (Alongside Ed Asner and Woody Harrelson.) When actors wonder why nobody listens to them on politics, this is why.

My favorite bit concerns the source of Martin Sheen's trutherism: he's been listening to the political opinions of his son. Charlie Sheen.

Sheen grew suspicious [of the factual account of 9/11] after his son Charlie, also an actor, alerted him to apparent contradictions, such as how a structure known as "Building 7" fell.

He said: "However, there have been so many revelations that now I have my doubts, and chief among them is Building 7 – how did they rig that building so that it came down on the evening of the day?

Thought for Charlie: Perhaps Building 7 toppled under the weight of all the hookers the government secretly stored on the penthouse floor?
