You've no doubt by now heard about the report from... wait for this one... the National Inquirer quoting an upcoming unauthorized biography of Sarah Palin (Deadspin.com brought it to mainstream knowledge). The Inquirer reported that Rice confirmed a sexual encounter with Palin in 1987. We haven't covered it since Rice hasn't been in the league since 2004 and this has nothing to do with basketball. But since if it's anything about anything, Charles Barkley will talk about it, and since, let's be honest, Charles Barkley is never lacking in entertainment value, we thought we'd pass along Barkley's comments about the whole thing Friday. Let's just say Chuck's a little jealous of Glen's, er... relationship. From Sports Radio Interviews: 
“You know I have a thing for Sarah Palin, I do. I think she’s hot! I wouldn’t vote for her, but she is hot now. I’m talking both. I’ve always said, ‘I’ve got a crush on Sarah Palin.’ I would never vote for her. I always vote democratic because I think you have a better chance of helping poor people if you vote democratic. But, I’ve always had a thing for Sarah Palin. When I read that… Glen Rice is my new hero! He’s my new hero. You know she just moved in my neighborhood and I haven’t had a chance to meet her. I stay in Philadelphia in the summer, and I go back to Arizona when it starts getting cold. That cold is creeping up on me. I’m talking 50 or 60 degrees. So, I’m heading back to Arizona soon and I look forward to meeting Sarah Palin. Hey listen if that story is true, more power to Glen Rice.”

So there you go. Glen Rice is now a hero to the people, or at least to Hall of Fame power forwards and current television studio hosts, in the event that he actually slept with Sarah Palin who isn't running for president and is... what is she doing now, anyway? Also, this happened 24 years ago. 

But there you go. Breaking news.

Gotta love Chuck.  He tells it like he sees it.  Sometimes it makes no sense.  In this case perfect sense.  He's got the same crush on her because she's got that naughty librarian look with the glasses.  He'd bang her and so would most guys.  He wouldn't vote for her, just like most guys too.  But remember back in 1987 she just finished her 7 year college degree in journalism and was working as a sports reporter for some podunk news channel in Alaska.  She was young, impressionable, most likely ignorantly ambitious as she is today and bedding a college sports star with an NBA future was probably a big one to put in her trophy case.  She also just won the Miss Wasila contest showing her talent playing the . . . .  flute.  Nuf said.  Oh, and the liberal propaganda machine set up by by Goebbels, what a joke, has nothing to do with the general lack of respect for Palin.  She did that herself.

Barkley's an F'ing moron. And I'm sure Rice is just as stupid. Gimme me a break. To the Obungler-loving douchebags at CBS, what's the point of this non "story" scumbags?

If you'd like the truth rather than your racist inspired, right wing talking points, which are inevitably lies fed to ignorant sheeple like yourself then go to this link:

Back then, Rice was a lot higher on the food chain than Palin.  She got lucky then, but Rice is lucky now.

Great story, hilarious in every way. Charles Barkley clearly has no filter and that's why I simply can't wait to hear what he says next.    

Note:  Matt Moore you're a terrible writer and you need to be fired.
