Charles Barkley: Dumb or unheralded genius?
Saw this over the weekend on Crooks and Liars (I really like that site.):
Sir Charles Barkley is known as a loud, kind of slow and mush-mouthed, tongue-tied ex-NBA baller and color commentator on TNT. He also for years espoused that he was a Republican (I think the logic behind that was he was "rich" and that was the rich party. Nice.)
But Chuck recently went on this little tirade about Republicans being "phony Christians" on CNN's "The Situation Room," also known as the crappiest three hours you could ever spend watching TV.
He still kind of sounds stupid. But it's a stupid I sort of agree with. Does this make me now stupid? So many questions to ponder.
