Charles Barkley speaks truth to power.

Well, actually he just talks a lot. Some of it is truth, some bravado, some is… fertilizer.

You can categorize Barkley’s comments to Conan O’Brien on taking on President Barack Obama in a game of one-on-one in in whichever of those categories you want (via Ball Don’t Lie).

“I’m an old, fat guy, but I’ll kick his ass…”

“He’s a lefty. He always goes left,” Barkley said. “If you just stand there, I’m not sure if you opened up the right side, he could go right at all … There are certain guys who could go either way, they say you’re ambidextrous. But he’s a one-handed basketball player.”

It should be noted that Barkley has been a big supporter of the president and met with him several times. Next time, he may find out that among other things the president is really competitive.

    Barkley is a conservative Republican.

      And he says idiotic things sometimes—okay, he says a lot of idiotic things—but what’s your point? Just curious.

      Barkley has said he is now an independent and said some fairly negative things about the Republican party. Like most people, I don’t think he fits neatly into either party’s mold.

        It could be said that he doesn’t fit neatly into just about anything.

        That’s turrble.

    No wonder he is such an arrogant a$$hole, cannot handle the truth, and is full of crap!
