Charles Barkley for President

This is why I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. I love the fact that he tells it like it is – not in a ‘good ol boy’ way like Bush tries to do, but in a matter-of-fact, this country and its politicians are full of shit kind of way:

“You don’t think we’ve all played with gay guys?” Barkley said. “Of course we have. It has never been an issue. America, the more I live in it, the more I realize how full of it we are. If we’re not bombing the wrong country, we’re not fixing hurricane-relief areas. America is homophobic. It’s so easy for (reporters) to say the other jocks won’t like it. America discriminates against gay people, but we’ve all played with gay people.”

From an article by Dan Le Batard in Indystar.com, talking about John Amaechi coming out.

  1. this is one (pretty awesomely) good comment, but have you seen his health-care plan? And do you know who he would appoint to be attorney general? Thats right, that little point guard whose name I can’t remember from the Suns, Kevin… Johnson? Yeah, so, don’t throw your vote away.

  2. Tim Duncan for VP!
