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.

Barkley is the most racisist commentator out there right now in sports Period!  Remember Jimmy the Greek getting fired for the comments he made back in the early 90's.  Well, Let's see...... Barkley saying that Glen Rice is his "hero" because the INQUIRER reported that he had a sexual encounter with Sara Palin?   Insinuating that a "Black Man" screwed a "White woman" whom Barkley thinks is Hot...so in Barkley's "Fantasy World" that makes Rice his Hero? Hey Barkley, If that is How U pick ur Heroes...Ur way worse Off than I thought...What a Great Role Model u turned out to be for the "Black" youth of America today.
 
Would Barkley have had the same reaction if the Inquirer reported that Rice had a Sexual Encounter with say...Michelle Obama???   
Don't  think so!   
 
How about this comment he made in April of 2010......Charles Barkley has resorted to racial insults in his attack on the guy who runs the Masters -- comparing Billy Payne to a slave-driving plantation owner after Payne ripped Tiger Woods over the scandal.

But...it seems Barkley has No problem Playing Golf on those SLAVE-DRIVING PLANTATIONS (if that is what U call it when he swings a Club)! 

He is the Biggest Hypocrite/Racisist I have ever seen. I don't know how he keeps a Job??  Oh...I know why...Cause He's Black and Controversial....Which Is Great for Ratings!!  And If He was Ever FIRED....Barkley would be the first one running to the NAACP for help in filing a Lawsuit.

The man has some serious, well-thought-out opinions on race and class in America, and what to do about where we are.  He comes across as an actual thinking, caring human being.
This is the frightening thing.  People laughed when he wanted to run for governor of Alabama, but if you ever bothered to actually listen to what he had to say, it was actually incredibly accurate and honest.

I think Barkley has a very shrewd sense of humor. Many years ago he was questioned about the wisdom of leaving Auburn early for the NBA. His reply: "I took a pay cut to go to the NBA."
