Senator/Governor/President Charles Barkley?
Does this mean we will have to solve all of our problems with a sweaty game of one-on-one?
NBA Hall of Fame player, Charles Barkley announced his intentions last July to run for Governor of Alabama, perhaps in 2010. "I was a Republican until they lost their minds," said Barkley at the time.OK, um, I think Barkley IS rich, so I don't know why he is mentioning economics at this point. Also, UNTIL they lost their minds? Um, where have you been, sir? That certainly isn't a new wordly development in my opinion.
In a talk with Wolf Blitzer on CNN this afternoon, Barkley may have begun to sketch out a platform on which to launch his political career.
"I want to be a politician," Barkley said. "I think I understand how the system works, I think a lot of politicians are corrupt, and it's about time we put some people in there who are going to look out for the majority of the people instead of the rich people."
