...Saying the Republican party is full of "fake Christians." Sir Charles talks about why he's voting Democratic this time around and tells Wolf Blitzer he's planning on running for Governor in 2014.

Link to video hosted at Crooks and Liars. I believe its also on Drudge.

BARKLEY: Hey, I live in Arizona. I have got great respect for Senator McCain. Great respect. But I don’t like the way the Republicans are taking this country. Every time I hear the word “conservative,” it makes me sick to my stomach, because they’re really just fake Christians, as I call them. That’s all they are. But I just — I’m going to vote Democratic no matter what. [..]

BLITZER: All right. One quick point before I let you go. You used the phrase “fake Christians” for conservatives. Explain what you’re talking about.

BARKLEY: Well, I think they — they want to be judge and jury. Like, I’m for gay marriage. It’s none of my business if gay people want to get married. I’m pro-choice. And I think these Christians — first of all, they’re supposed to be — they’re not supposed to judge other people. But they’re the most hypocritical judge of people we have in this country. And it bugs the hell out of me. They act like their Christians. And they’re not forgiving at all.

BLITZER: So you’re going to get a lot of feedback on this one, Charles.

BARKLEY: They can’t do anything to me. I don’t work for them.

Would someone in a role model position who refuses to take on that responsibility be considered "fake"?

If Charles Barkley was short no one would ever care about what he said, nor do I even though he is tall.

Charles has been threatening to run for something for about 20 years now.

Maybe he should just shut the fvck up and do it for once.
