Who's Afraid of a Big, Black Governor?

Charles Barkley gives us a reason to move to Alabama.


Charles Barkley insists he's serious about running for governor of Alabama, but he's got to move back there first.

"I can't run until 2014," he said. "I have to live there for seven years, so I'm looking for a house there as we speak."

And he said he is an independent, not a Democrat as previously reported.

"The Republicans are full of it," Barkley said. "The Democrats are a little less full of it."

America's divided by economics. If you're born poor, whether you're white, black or Spanish, you're going to be in a bad neighborhood and you're going to a bad school. That's not right."

"I've been really blessed in my life," he said, "and if I was just to be rich and famous and have a big house and a big car and live happily ever after, I think I would let the big fella down who gave me the gift to get to the Hall of Fame."



He makes a lot more sense than Ohio's big, scary black man, eh?

Long memories recall Blackwell's first campaign. He dressed like an accountant and stood in front of a clock and talked parsimony and common sense. It was great.

I never watch the news and I hadn't heard about the Charles Barkley think until I read this. I'm flabbergasted but not necessarily in a bad way.
