| Filed under: PolitikArnold Schwarzenegger

Charles Barkley wants to come out of retirement. Sorta.

The former basketball star is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Barkley was one of the dozens of celebrities this week at the Democratic National Convention. There, he spoke of his hopes of becoming more involved in politics and even running for governor.

The 45 year-old Alabama native said, "I'm planning to run for governor of Alabama. I have to live there for seven years. I bought my house there last year. I have homes in Arizona and Pennsylvania, but Alabama needs more help."

And just what type of help can Barkley provide?

And with what experience???

    Hell, why waste time running for Governor of Alabama, when you can run for President of the United States. After all, the idiot democrats just nominated "Borat" Obama, and Charles Barkley has JUST AS MUCH experience and training as Obama has.

    Fucktards Unite! Circle Jerk '08 aka The DNC is moving outside to Invesco Field to crown Obama King of the Morons tonight. I'm surprised the are their doing this because the wind might hit his Dumbo size ears and sweep him off the stage. Get your popcorn ready Dipshits!!

    Re: JET

    What would Charles Barkley have to do with Barack Obama? Charles Barkley is a delusional retired jock and Barack Obama is a US Senator.

    Barkley needs to go back to college and actually pay attention in class this time. It should take about 7 years so it would be perfect. He needs to find another hobby. Nobody's gonna elect him for anything. I think he's a raging stupid.



  11. 11

    OH GOD NO!!!



  12. 12

    What qualifications does this fucktard have to be governor?



  13. 13

    Well, apparently he has a lot of experience. Just look at the presidential election. You just have to be black and interested in politics to run for president.

    No, I am not racist. I am not voting for someone based upon race. You are a racist if you think others are racist for not voting for Barack!

    WAR DAMN EAGLE!

    Re: JET – True that, but Chuck's pretty cool.



  15. 15

    He's a Democrat - We shouldn't question his credentials.



  16. 16

    He's full of shit. Now he's a Democrat? The fat bastard was sleeping with the Republicans for years and now he's getting on the Obama train like the regular negro lemmings.
    Big joke. Give that fat fool some fried chicken and tell him to STFU.



  17. 17

    He's right about 'bama needing the most help. Decades of inbreeding has really fucked that place up! It's because people from other just don't want to fuck those people!



  18. 18

    He has a serious gambling problem and legal issues stemming from his addiction. Don't think he is what Alabama needs.



  19. 19

    He has the same experience Ahnuld had when the idiot voters of my state elected him…NONE!!!!!



  20. 20

    As an Alabamian who actually wants what is good for my state, I would much more rather see AL-Representative Artur Davis run for governor one day. Congressman Davis has already done amazing things for the Black Belt region specifically. I feel that Davis could unite our state, whites and blacks as well as republicans and democrats.
    Just to make a note, I am a young, white female who is not affiliated with any political party. This has nothing to do with race or politics. It has to do with advancing the state of Alabama.
    KatieLyn- Roll Tide! I look forward to your teams kickoff just as much as mine.



  21. 21

    Barkley is my boy he might work…but then again, I remember thinking Ahhh-nold would be good for Kah-li-fornia…



  22. 22

    Re: KatieLyn – No, you're not a racist…that might actually require one additional brain cell. Let's see…you don't believe in voting for someone based on race and that's legit. Obviously you don't believe in ability either. That makes you a shoe-in for McCain. Has your trailer park held it's registration drive, yet?



  23. 23

    If Arnold and Jesse Ventura can do it,
    Why Not??



  24. 24

    what difference does his EXPERIENCE make? You believe experience doesn't matter- that anyone, regardless of his background, should be elected.



  25. 25

    Wasn't his TELEVISED COLONOSCOPY enough!? LOL!



  26. 26

    Riiiiiight, ’cause Bama is chomping at the bit to have a black governor. Please!



  27. 27

    I live in Alabama and I feel so sorry that he actually think we elect him.



  28. 28

    If Charles Barkley was a real man, he would punch Perez in the nose for drawing that scribble on his nostrils, implying that he is a cocaine-head.
    :l
    That wouldn't really fall under my definition of violence; more like generosity (giving Perez exactly what he asked for).
    :l

    Harry, open your Dumbo-sized ears. Hear the issues. President Obama is committed to education programs, and you need them badly. You don't even know how to compose a simple sentence. You used the word "their" where you should have written "there". Also, Dumbo-sized is a hypenated word, and it is "sized" not "size".
    :l
    Who would take voting advice from a dunce?
    :l

    :l
    That is a ridiculous statement, and it is not the definition of a racist. Why are you even discussing race or gender, at all, when discussing the candidates? You brag about your freedoms, but you don't even practice your own freedom of thought. Racism and Sexism are learned behaviour. You were not born with hatred. Stop being a bunch of mindless lemmings, and research the information that matters when you "carefully" choose who will manage your money and your country.
    :l
    It's not rocket science.



  31. 31

    …and hypenated was typo (hyphenated).
    c( ^ )c



  32. 32

    there is no way im gonna vote for this cocky bald man!!



  33. 33

    Oh Hell No… I HATE this arrogant and idiotic man. He's a waste of Black skin.



  34. 34

    God help whatever state Barkley tries to govern. What a schmuck.



  35. 35

    why are all of these rich people democrats?



  36. 36

    Well, if Jesse 'The Body' Ventura can, why not Charles Barkley?



  37. 37

    I wish America had a more open mind. You do not have to be a politician to be a leader why doesn't your nation get that?

    Charles was a hero, one of the best at what he did and was a true leader and champion through determination. He has always been vocal and I have read his books, he is not only very on the ball but he also identifies with the common person.

    I would much rather this prolific athlete with brains lead me than some suit wearing cocksucker that does not know the meaning of hard work.

    Charles Barkley is and was a hero to millions and through his hard work and skill as an athlete. What more do you want?

    I am Canadian and even I would love him as a leader. I have also read his books and urge everyone else to do the same before passing judgement.

    Charles is a class act. Good luck Charles and all the best from up north!



  38. 38

    I just want to reiterate that this man came up from humble beginnings not as a nerd or a suit but as an athlete and a leader. He is where he is through blood, sweat and tears and now he wants to help his community and yall are dissing him? wow.

    I would vote for Charles Barkley as prime minister of Canada. You yanks should feel honoured to have him. Its disgusting how you treat your real heroes



  39. 39

    hahahahahahahaha

    Re: bobbytomorow – omg. Prime Minister of Canada!?!?! You must be kidding.

    what a joke

    He could do for Alabama just what Schwarzenegger has done for California, bankrupt it. Enough with the celebrity politicians. California is a state with very high taxes and lots of high earners to pay them and Arnold STILL managed to fuck it up. Alabama, on the other hand, is already a state in fiscal trouble. Alabama can't afford to experiment with a celebrity governor.

    OH YA THAT'S A GREAT IDEA



  44. 44

    It is great that he recognized that Alabama needs help, but I just don't think he could help with the big issues that Alabama faces.
