Back when I actually cared about basketball (I believe G.I. Joe still aired), I remember hearing about the great (mouth) Charles Barkley mulling a potential run as governor of Alabama…as a Republican. A decade later he’s still talking about running for governor of Alabama, only this time don’t bet on him running on the GOP ticket.
It seems like someone finally gave Sir Charles a clue that the controlling base of the Republican Party is largely made up of pseudo Christians who engineer deceit-ridden, fear-mongering, hate-laden campaigns to seize and maintain power. Better late than never, I suppose.
Charles didn’t say anything I didn’t know already about the so-called conservatives strong-arming the Grand Old Party, but I am surprised (and happy) he said it. Who knows? He might end even start dating sisters. Ha. Kidding. Baby steps, ya’ll.
It’s refreshing to hear someone say what they actually think, but while we agree on the issues of abortion and gay marriage, good luck on running with that platform in Alabama, Charles.
Sidenote: What is up with Wolf Blitzer? I mean, he seems like a nice person and all, but sometimes you have to wonder if he went to Short Yellow Bus University.
Case in point:
Barkley: “I just bought a house in 2007, and in 2014 I promise you I’m going to run for governor in 2014.”
Blitzer: “And when exactly will you be running for governor?”
I’m going to need Chilli to pay attention to his interviewees.
