I saw Charlie when he came to Boston University. He was entertaining and clearly sober. I thought he was Libertarian leaning which is a refreshing change from the Hollywood Communists.
I remember in the 90’s when Rush had his TV show, that Sheen showed up drunk (surprise) and asked for admittance. He said, “but I’m a conservative”. Rush did not let him in. I always wondered if Charlie was BS’ing Rush or was serious. I mean, if you’re liberal, why waste time going to see a conservative show? You couldn’t PAY me to even pretend to be a liberal so I could see Bill Maher’s show. Even when drunk.
