A #Winning Hire?

Veteran of the Charlie Sheen media team joins Obama campaign


The Obama Campaign has hired Charlie Sheen's "social media intern" as its new deputy director of digital for the state of Wisconsin.

Josh Burstein, Sheen's former intern, announced the hire on Twitter; his former boss congratulated him earlier this afternoon.

Sheen joined Twitter shortly after getting fired from his hit CBS show Two and a Half Men. Burstein joined Team Sheen during a turbulent period in the actor's life when he was fighting for custody of his children, living with two "goddesses"—one of whom was porn star Bree Olson—and coining phrases like "Winning!" and "Tiger Blood!" in semi-coherent interviews with the media.
