PHOENIX -- 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."
Asked if he had ever been in the governor's office in Montgomery, Barkley said no.
"They don't let many black people in the governor's mansion in Alabama," he said, "unless they're cleaning."

ditto....that jerk will not move back to alabama for the required 7 years....he's just looking for some attention!
And he plays an embarrasing round of golf, to boot.
Only point in his favor lately: he is generous to charities, even when he can't play the game he's helping to promote.
I assume he has a tell all book coming out in the next 12 months...
How much could he tell that we don't already know? He's an idiot.
His gambling habit is out of control
Because you're a low-life dumb-f$ck, Charles. You and Shaq are neck-and-neck in the layup to the low-life basket. That's why not. Take a clue from Michael Jordan or Kevin Garnett and develop a little class, a-hole.
This dope supported John Edwards.
Unfortunately, Rush put him on the cover of the Limbaugh report many years ago. Chuck was handed the ball and dropped it.
I hate that guy, Edwards........creepy!
Yes, doesn't John-Boy commute to his job at the UNC "Center for Poverty" from his hundred acre ranch in Chapel Hill. Why do him and two-time loser Irksome Bowels get rewarded with plum college jobs on our nickel?
Anyway, back to Sir Charles, I always cringed when he was a GOP'er when he'd say stuff like "they changed Augusta to keep Tiger from winning because he's black". He's no loss to our side.
Why do you have to rip Shaq... all the guy wanted to do was get in a few movies, win a few titles and become a cop when he retires.
Last I checked KG didn't win anything.
He did so during a game in Philly when harassed by her father, about 7 or 8 years ago!
Sir Charles couldn't win a ring. Don't know why he thinks he can win the governorship.
Rush's on-air gushing over Charlie greatly decreased my esteem for Rush. I know Charlie thought he was a Republican back then, but he was still an idiot of the lowest order.
I never heard about that, but it doesn't surprise me in the least.
Wonder if he governs like he golfs?
Do you get a ring with your MVP trophy?
Extracted from here:
This is great! If he runs as an independent, he further splits the Democrat vote. I'm all in favor of him running.
