Sheen calls Gov. Palin the w-word; crowd boos him, walks out

What began with a standing ovation concluded with booing and walk-outs
Alexander Marlow quotes from ET's James Hibberd on Charlie Sheen's disaster of a live show in Detroit Saturday night:
9:18 – “Nothing terrifies a troll more than its own reflection,” Sheen continues, before shifting gears into politics. “In a recent poll, they told me I’d bring down that whore [Sarah] Palin. I don’t have time for that nonsense.”


9:20 — People start booing Sheen. Not playing around, but actually booing him. Sheen yells, “I already got your money, dude!”
An excerpt from Marlow's comments at Big Hollywood:
Anyway, it’s painful to feel forced to respond to a remark delivered to get attention by a person who is utterly desperate for it, so I’m not going to overly indulge Sheen or anyone of the other anti-Palin bed-wetters who would enjoy it; after all, the ad hominem attack is provably false and meant to offend people like the ones who frequent this blog, so why bother? Also, Charlie is Martin Sheen’s son, so we can’t realistically expect him to have reasonable political views.

But what I will say is that I’m disappointed that Sheen, a star who I thought did everything in his power to buck the establishment, has embraced the single most pathetic cliché in Hollywood today: bagging on the mother of five with some of the most caustic words imaginable.

And even in über-blue Detroit, he was booed for it. Now that’s what I call Tiger Blood.
