    I've always liked Sir Charles, but for Governor? LOL. Well, he WIll speak his mind and if Arnold can do it, why not Charles?

    Hey, it's Alabama. It makes perfect sense! :laugh:

    "I was a Republican until they lost their minds," he said earlier this month.

    (I found this amusing but wasn't sure if this was green room stuff or general NBA stuff...feel free to move it).

    I'd vote for Charles. The Terminator, The Body, The Round Mound of Rebound. Welcome to American politics.

    I'd vote for him too. He's a common sense and no BS guy with a great sense of humor. I'd like to see him run for president someday...I'm sure his 'state of the union' speaches would be memorable. :nod:

    Maybe he could get Mahorn as his running mate...campaign slogan...Thump N' Bump! :laugh:

    Barkley is an idiot. Needless to say, that qualifies him to be a succesful political candidate for something.

    He may someday be a Governor, however, I doubt very seriously if it will be the state of Alabama!!!!!!!!

    I would prefer to see Sir Charles in charge of something important.

    Like the food and drug administration...
    or foreign affairs...
    or maybe as a press secretary

    He probably could not do any worse. We need more non-lawyers in politics.

    Couldn't agree more...attorneys are the fleas feasting in the armpit of humanity.

    I didn't mean it like that. 90 whatever pct of politicians seem to be lawyers. Nothing in the consitution stating that you need a law degree to lead.
