Appearing on PTI yesterday, Charles Barkley said he plans to run for governor of Alabama in 2014. Barkley said he would run as a Democrat.
Two states over, Karl Malone has said for years he is considering running for governor of Arkansas. Malone, a self-described "black redneck," would run as a Republican.
It's too bad these two are from different states, because this would be the greatest election campaign in political history. Then again, if both those guys win office, maybe Dennis Rodman — who went to school at Southeastern Oklahoma State — will decide to run for governor in Oklahoma.
