Even while Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal remains in 12th place in the polls, he likes to brazenly tell the press that he thinks he’s getting his party’s nomination.
So why not suggest that Donald Trump‘s running mate should be Hollywood’s poster boy for drugged out actors who have dated goddesses and occasionally Playboy playmates?
Yeah, Charlie Sheen.
Why alienate such an important constituency?
Sheen would definitely not be a boring choice. He had an epic public meltdown in 2011 after he was fired from Two And A Half Men. He went on a media tour that was must-watch TV. Not only did he admit to smoking lots of crack, but in an interview with NBC’s Jeff Rossen, he said, “I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitching, a total fricking rock star from Mars, and people can’t figure me out, they can’t process me. I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with a normal brain.”
On Wednesday Jindal’s campaign offered a “vision” of the “dream ticket.”
Which is “Trump/Sheen Winning in ’16.”
Jindal Campaign Manager Timmy Teepell explained their reasoning.
“Charlie Sheen is clearly Donald Trump’s spirit animal,” he said. “Or maybe it’s the other way around? “They’d win here, they’d win there, they’d be bi-winning. It’s a match made in heaven.”
Jindal’s camp even produced a video. Watch here.
