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.

@richyrich  Newsflash to you...Obama added 3 + trillion to our debt all on his own. And yes poor people don't do better voting for Democrats unless you consider welfare benefits and other government handouts as doing "better". Our country is in the shitter because people with your mindset voted for a socialist who doesn't like this country and who wanted to expand government as much and as fast as he could. But hey, keep voting for the Obama and the Dems...and when we wind up like Greece or some of the other bankrupt eurosocialist countries, come back and tell me how great our country is then.

Wow Trexx, 'hopey changey'? Are you just quoting directly from the Sarah Palin / Replublican handbook there? Im pretty sure she said the exact same thing. The economy didn't just become a mess overnight when Obama won the election. Do you honestly believe that the country would be just fine right now if you had another 4 years of Republicans? Didn't GWB do enough damage in his 8 years in office? Your country is in the shitter because of GWBs 8 years, not Obamas first few years trying to clean up the mess. NEWSFLASH: it was a big mess.

Chucky with another brainless comment....   Democrats are better for poor people?   How is that Hopey Changey doing for the poor?  Black Unemployment is up over 16%.  WellFare and food stamps are at historic highs....  If you don't vote Republican because you like the poor to stay poor then you are supporting the right candidates Chuck.
