Conservative Basher Charles Barkley on DUI Arrest: All I Really Wanted Was Oral Sex
NewsBusters ^ | January 1, 2009 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 01/01/2009 11:40:52 AM PST by PJ-Comix

When last seen in NewsBusters, former NBA star Charles Barkley was in the midst of a conservative bashing spree as you can see here smearing Fox News with this quote:

I watch CNN, they’re not f***ed up like Fox,” Barkley told B&C. “They are a mouthpiece for the Republican Party. I watch [Fox] a couple times when there is someone I want to see on there. But they’re corrupt."

This was on the heels of Barkley bashing conservatives a few months earlier on CNN bashing conservatives as "fake Christians":

Hey, I live in Arizona. I have got great respect for Senator McCain. Great respect. But I don’t like the way the Republicans are taking this country. Every time I hear the word "conservative," it makes me sick to my stomach, because they’re really just fake Christians, as I call them. That’s all they are. But I just — I’m going to vote Democratic no matter what.

I'll laugh even harder the next time Barkley goes on CNN and tells everybody how corrupt conservatives are.

Barkley is an idiot. Always has been, always will be.

The only thing I’ll say in his defense is stuff like this in today’s NBA would make him a boy scout.

Whatever happened to him? He once called himself a Republican.

He doesn’t know the first thing about true conservatism.

That’s what comes of so-called “conservatives” sucking up to these celebrity-types and bozo actors like Schwarzenegger. Each one of them has, at most, two brain cells which have never even bumped into each other.

Will Chuck have to go see “ The Reverend Jackson” to absolve himself? As I recall, that’s who Bill Clinton went to see.

If being a Conservative means that he can’t drive down the street at 2 am to get a BJ from a street hooker any time he wants, then he want’s nothing to do with it. The Democrats will let him have what he wants.

Barkley is simply a fat, arrogant, loud mouthed pig. Nothing else need be said about this slime ball. He has squandered millions on his gambling debts. If he, as with all liberals, was so kind and caring, he would have donated that money to some charity. But, not this pig. He drinks, whores, and gambles. There is a special room in hell for the kinds like Barkley.

He then explained that she had given him a 'b**w job' one week earlier and said it was the best one he had ever had in his life."

They always are.

Barkley is an idiot. Always has been, always will be.

You bet!

And as someone from Philly, this is another reason I have sworn off ever EVER listening to Michael Smerconish... that bogus pretend-Republican talk show host who simply fawns and drools over Barkley as some type of articulate brilliant hero.

That stupid talk show station Smerconish is on even has promo ads with Barkley as some type of great thinker. (Smerconish endorsed Obama... and I haven't heard five seconds of his show since)

Whoever the photographer was who took that pic of Barkley deserves the Pulitzer.

Charles Barkley is a total idiot. He somehow believes because he do one thing well he is an authority on everything.

Same here. About the only thing I still listen to on 1210 is Rush and Dom G.

Yeah, I remember Rush liking Chow Bowkley as at least somewhat conservative some years back. I guess he wasn’t tough enough to hang in their against all the libs around him.

When my son was young and a growing basketball fan, I remember King Charles saying that he was not a role model. He wasn’t then and he sure isn’t now. There was no mention of a wife, and was the woman a hooker?

He was probably framed by a whiteman. Or maybe Barney the Dinosaur framed him for Barkley beating him up on Saturday Night Live.

Almost satire; if were funny rather than just plain sick. . .

News flash......there is no correlation between the ability to “play in the paint” and IQ. If not for basketball Barkley would be nothing more than obsolete farm equipment.

I don't give a rap about Charles Barkey's moronic opinions on any issue, much less conservatives. His DUI was likely well-deserved but we know he'll pay a fine - chump change to him - and slither away from any real criticism. Hey, he's a famous athlete! The man is clearly less than intelligent, despite his one-time prowess playing basketball. Is this a surprise to anyone? I doubt it.

Unfortunately, this is what happens when, as a nation, we put too far too much emphasis on sports and the men that play these games as adults; the 'professionals'. We spend hours watching them play their games, making the sport an 'industry' that can pay these athletes embarrassingly huge sums of money to, basically, entertain us. Then we're offended when some of them become arrogant and obnoxious, especially post-career, like Barkley, and spout leftist drivel as if they had the slightest semblance of a clue about whatever they're babbling about.

I suggest we ignore rich-but-otherwise-inconsequential over-the-hill athletes who say stupid and offensive things and act like low-life hoodlums. I'm sick of them.

Me too, my friend.

Bill Bennett is certainly a good guy, but his radio show is a little slow sometimes.

If some Philly radio station would come up with a dynamic conservative morning talk show in the 6-9am slot, they would clean up.

Smerconish had been defrauding listeners for years with this "I'm a Republican" crap.

In 2006, he totally ambushed Bucks conservative Republican congressman Mike Fitzpatrick with dozens of smarmy gotcha questions, trying to paint Fitz as a heavy handed civil rights violator out-of-touch Bush sychophant ....

During candidate debates on his show, Smerconish gave the red carpet treatment to liberal Democrat candidates like Patrick Murphy, a liberal, homo-education supporting, tax hike supporting, troop insulting Obama suck up to the max.

It was disgusting in the extreme.

Fitzpatrick is the most honest politician I've ever known. Proud conservative values. Low tax, open space supporter, proLife, never dealt with smarmy lobbyists, GREAT constituent service for ALL.

Yet Smerconish joined the national media jerks in full throated attacks against everything conservative.... the War on Terror, etc... and actually claimed Obama's claim to "invade Pakistan" was credible.

Guess you can tell I'm still disgusted.
