Something Wicked This Way Comes

There’s a terrible storm looming over Washington, D.C., poised to wreak havoc on the city and its residents in a way that we haven’t seen since…well, since yesterday, when the waters rose up and destroyed the Georgetown waterfront.

Perhaps that was a sign of horrific things to come, as walking pillbox Charlie Sheen descends upon D.C. and brings his Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option tour to DAR Constitution Hall tonight.

WCP‘s Brandon Wetherbee says Sheen has the “best tour name of all time,” and he has all the answers to any questions you might have about why this is happening and what to expect. The name may be the only good thing about the tour.

Laura Donovan, an online editor at the Daily Caller, will be in attendance for what is sure to be a incomprehensible disaster filled with despair and human misery. She’s going, she says, “in the name of entertainment journalism.” She requested a media pass but was told by Sheen’s PR representative that no media passes were being distributed despite reports to the contrary. And, the rep added, “If you don’t want to believe me, that’s your prerogative.” Yep, that sounds like Sheen’s PR. So she bought her own ticket and plans to get reimbursed.

Donovan is hoping Sheen will talk politics, Donald Trump‘s possible candidacy in particular, and prays that he comes up with something funnier than “winning.” Fingers crossed, but we wouldn’t bet on it.
