Charles Barkley spoke truth to pussy power on CNN today. He may be wrong but we doubt it, and he does too. If we didn’t think it was too soon and he’d probably just gamble it away we’d send him a check for his threatened 2014 Alabama gubernatorial run. And not because we love the Charles Barkley Straight Talk Express, even though we do — but just because Alabama fucking has it coming. And Jesus Christ on a crutch, Wolf Blitzer is SUCH a pussy!
BARKLEY: Well, I just bought a house in 2007. And in 2014, I promise you I’m going to run for governor of Alabama…Hey, I live in Arizona. I have got great respect for Senator McCain. Great respect. But I don’t like the way the Republicans are taking this country. Every time I hear the word “conservative,” it makes me sick to my stomach, because they’re really just fake Christians, as I call them. That’s all they are. But I just — I’m going to vote Democratic no matter what.
BLITZER: All right. One quick point before I let you go. You used the phrase “fake Christians” for conservatives. Explain what you’re talking about.
BARKLEY: Well, I think they — they want to be judge and jury. Like, I’m for gay marriage. It’s none of my business if gay people want to get married. I’m pro-choice. And I think these Christians — first of all, they’re supposed to be — they’re not supposed to judge other people. But they’re the most hypocritical judge of people we have in this country. And it bugs the hell out of me. They act like their Christians. And they’re not forgiving at all. [via FANHOUSE]
RELATED: Asked why he supported Obama over Clinton the 11-time NBA All-Star noted the need for more black role models outside the arena of sports and entertainment. Barkley took exception to the argument that Obama didn’t carry enough foreign policy experience by noting that the Illinois senator would be surrounded by advisers who would be skilled in such areas.
RELATED: Via the great SPORTSbyBROOKS, we learned that Barkley “only” lost $100,000 on the [the Superbowl] (well, I’m assuming it’s $110,000 if you factor in the vig). In typical gambler fashion, he equated not betting the Giants on the money line (4/1) as a loss. So he didn’t actually lose 400k, he just thought he was supposed to win it. Which is basically a loss in degenerate gambler-speak. (yeah, I speak it fluent)
