Dang I hate to hear this. He seems like a good guy. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
If Charles Barkley is still planning on running for public office, he better make sure to register as a Democrat. Otherwise this will become a campaign issue.
Thats Turribull Kenny!! Jus Turribull!
Wasn’t Sir Charles planning on running for Governor of Alabama? Maybe he got arrested to burnish his credentials as a dimocrat.
Barkley’s a favorite of the sports fan suckitty-uppers in media.
I guess he was pulled because of his race - eyes roll.
Charles Barkley for Governor!!!!
If he sobers up, maybe he’ll be able to spend more time on correcting the WORST golf swing in the history of mankind.
BARKLEY BACKS OBAMA
Charles Barkley, former pro basketball star and former Republican, is attending his first political convention to support his friend Barack Obama.
"I think he would make a fantastic president," Barkley told CNN. "I never thought in my lifetime I'd see a black man get the presidential nomination. This is historical."
Chucky is a Dummycrat.
I know he is a Democrat. I was being sarcastic. Sorry I didn’t add a /sarcasm tag.
His field sobriety test was like his blackjack playing- he couldn’t count to 21!
auditioning for New York Senator?
I revel in this racist scumbag’s hell.
He can't count to 21 unless he's naked.
CNN: THE SITUATION ROOM
February 21, 2007
Hillary Clinton Versus Barack Obama; Interview With Charles Barkley:
[bottom of transcript...]
BLITZER: If you take a look at the political situation now, the war in Iraq is clearly dominating so much of the political environment. Where do you stand on this conflict?
BARKLEY: You know, Wolf, it’s very simple. They said we were going to Iraq to get rid of Saddam Hussein. He had been in prison for a couple of years and now he’s dead.
That situation has not gotten better. So it’s an easy call for me. We’ve got to get out of Iraq.
I mean, he was in jail for a couple of years. Now he’s dead. That situation hasn’t gotten better.
So anything the Republicans say about the war in Iraq, it’s just bogus. I mean, it’s a terrible situation. We’ve got a lot of innocent kids getting killed over there. And we’re never going to be safe over there.
BLITZER: Your bottom line is simply get out?
BARKLEY: We’ve got to get out.
BLITZER: Charles Barkley, thanks very much for joining us.
BARKLEY: Thanks for having me.
ESPN’s Michael Wilbon will find some way to minimize the arrest by talking about how great a person Sir Charles is.
BTW: ESPN’s gasbags are still downplaying it by not talking about it
Query... If J.C. Watts or Jack Kemp was arrested for DUI there lede would be “Former pro football player and Republican ____ was arrested for drunk driving, yada, yada, yada.”
I have always found Charles Barkley to be highly entertaining!!!...I can’t wait for the ‘arrest’ tape to be leaked on you-tube........just another comical chapter in the life of the mound-round of rebound!!!
I wonder if he was busted by this guy....
He lives in Arizona. McCain will find some way to suck up to him
I personally like the commercial where the waitress says to Dwayne (in reference to Barkley): “Is that your dad?”
Oh, he’s a democrat alright. Spent a lot of time bashing all things republican in recent times.
No doubt he will be screaming ‘racism’ with regard to his arrest.
Naw. He just beat him down.
Good to know I'm still smarter than 'Sir Charles'. I had no doubt that in my lifetime I'd see a black man as Presidential nom and President. Probably a woman too..maybe even a black woman!
It will be interesting to see how his 'Auburn Family' will take the news/blame it on rival team Coach Saban. lol
Saban, aka: “Nick Satan”
Those commercials with him and Dwayne Wade have 'gay' written all over them.
This one is one of the weirdest:
See if you can find the one you mentioned here:
Life’s to short too spend it on hating. Just ignore.
To quote Sgt Hulka, “Lighten up Francis.”
The “bromance” is the latest theme. In fact, Ryan Seacrest developed a show around it that premiers in January. Ryan’s show “Moma’s Boys” has been on a couple of weeks now.
I am 'turribully' glad I read the thread before I posted from my inner Frank Caliendo...
Charles Barkley was a great basketball player... but then he retired and started talking... Good job chuck! And hey don’t worry, your a registered democrat now, this won’t hurt your chances at office, just keep playing your race card and you’ll be a shoe in.
As you may know, Chucky played around with being a Pubbie some years ago. But methinks “Mr. Tough Guy” evidently wilted under criticism from his friends and slithered over to the Dummycrat party where his low-life self belongs.
Since he is a Dummycrat, this DUI will just be a resume-enhancement for Chucky’s political ambititions.
Oh trust me, Chucky was doing lots of talking when he was a player. In fact, the sports media loved him because you never knew what was going to come out of his mouth, but they always knew it would usually make good fodder for the 10 pm newz.
He's a jerk. Especially on the links. I watched him cuss out a volunteer at a charity golf tournament because the volunteer wouldn't get a ball he hit into a gated yard on the course. The man is just plain mean.
I thought I had a terrible swing
Sorry to hear that. I have only seen him on tv on talk shows so I don’t really know him.
How you people throw around the name of the evil one so nonchalantly never ceases to amaze me. Calling him Sabear or $aban not mean and ugly enough to satisfy your Saban Derangement Syndrome?? lol
I don't follow basketball so wasn't really aware of Barkley until Rush talked about him a few times years ago. I found out he had played college ball in Alabama and that was cool. THEN I started hearing stuff right from Barkley himself and changed my opinion! lol
Thanks for the link to this clip. in 2014, all it will take is showing it on Alabama television and his plans to govern our state will be ‘gone with the wind’-bag.
He is a racist and creep. He has a long list of things that put him in the pos category, including spitting on spectators.
If he only realized how ignorant he sounds in that video clip.
Problem is, he doesn’t.
He switche parties a few years ago.
Top Ten Barkley quotes:
10. On the Portland Trail Blazers (back when they were known as the Jail Blazers) serving Thanksgiving meals: “In between arrests they do community service.”
9. “Yeah Ernie, its called defense, I mean I wouldn’t know anything about it personally but I’ve heard about it through the grapevine.
8. “Well, when I went off to college, the guys I used to hang with were pumping gas and voting Democrat. Today they’re still pumping gas and voting Democrat. Guess the Democrats didn’t do much for them.”
7. “When I was recruited at Auburn [university], they took me to a strip joint. When I saw those titties on Buffy, I knew that Auburn met my academic requirements.”
6. “Hey Stanley, you could be a great player if you learned just two words: I’m full.”— Barkley yelling to 300-plus-pound Houston Rockets teammate Stanley Roberts
5. “I heard Tonya Harding is calling herself the Charles Barkley of figure skating. I was going to sue her for defamation of character, but then I realized I have no character.”
4. On the All-Star Game: “Hell, there ain’t but 15 black millionaires in the whole country & half of ‘em are right here in this room.”
3. On Jerry Krause still being able to keep his job as GM of the Chicago Bulls: “Jerry Krause must have pictures of his boss’s wife having sex with a monkey.”
2. After throwing a guy through a 1st floor window in a bar Charles was in front of the judge.
Judge: “Your sanctions are community service and a fine, do you have any regrets?”
Charles: “Yeah I regret we weren’t on a higher floor”
1. After an Olympic Dream Team victory over Angola, in which they won 116-48, Charles got into a physical altercation with a member of Angola towards the end of the game, afterwards he says: “Somebody hits me, I’m going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn’t eaten in a couple weeks. I thought he was going to pull a spear on me.”
How you people throw around the name of the evil one so nonchalantly never ceases to amaze me.
Voldemort, Voldemort, Voldemort. There.
ESPN Radio still not talking about it.
I've only seen one Pirates of the Caribbean movies, muchless gotten started on the Harry Potter books and movies! lol
I understand the simplicity of combining the hate people feel for Coach Saban and the one letter change, really I do. Phat Phil, Wingnut, LeSmiles.. and there's always JeaLSU, UcheaT, Old Sis, the barn etc.. fun stuff! It's just the word I don't like.
Back on topic... Barkley's a jerk and IF this is a legitimate arrest I hope he bears the consequences of his actions.
