On the heels of his DUI arrest and embarrassing details surrounding the incident, TNT reports that Charles Barkley will be taking a “leave of absence” from the broadcast booth. It’s about time. 

A Gilbert officer working a regional DUI task force stopped Barkley shortly after he left a popular nightclub at about 1:30 a.m. He failed field sobriety tests but was cooperative.

But was cooperative? If “cooperative” means bribing the officer with promises of putting a tattoo on his butt in the officer’s likeness and getting the officer to understanding the true reason for blowing off the stop sign, i.e., the hotness of his girl-friend and imminent O.S., then I guess that’s “cooperative.” 

Barkley was booked and released at a field command post and later issued a statement saying he was disappointed he put himself in that situation.

If “disappointed he put himself in that situation” means cheating repeatedly on his wife Maureen and racing to get there, then that sums it up I guess. 

Now that the loud-mouthed, egomaniac, ignoramus, Conservative-bashing Barkley is on a “leave of absence” indefinitely, I can return to watching TNT’s Inside the NBA. Good riddance.

Yes, the estimable Charles Barkley, who plans on running for governor of Alabama in 2014, doesn’t know the capital of Arizona, despite having played on the Phoenix Suns for four seasons! You just can’t make up this stuff. 

Oh yeah, TNT couldn’t help themselves by getting another dig in to Sarah Palin. Let it go people. 

 

 Hilarious FLASHBACK:

Charles Barkley is running his mouth again. Tonight on the TNT halftime report of the Phoenix Suns-New Orleans Hornets basketball game, Charles and the gang couldn’t resist injecting derogatory comments aimed at Sarah Palin. 

Discussing the Phoenix Suns’ bench, Ernie Johnson (E.J.) reminded Charles of his off-air comment about their “thinness.” Barkley pipes up, “I told Kennie off-air that their resume [the Phoenix Suns’ bench] is thinner than Sarah Palin’s!” 

*Laughter, Laughter. Holding our sides. This snickering and guffawing is making us laugh so hard because we’re so clever and funny us ultra-liberals with our sexist language insulting a professional woman because we’re so smart we believe everything the media spoon feeds us. Ha, ha, we’re really zombies following our Dear Leader community organizer. No really, ‘cuz he has experience. and hope. and change.”

Then putting his hand to his brow looking off in the distance, E.J. chimmed in with the hilarious comment, “I can see Alaska from the set.”

*More laughter ‘cuz we’re so witty and original.*

You know, I love basketball and have enjoyed the TNT Thursday night games. The group is funny and make me laugh. But I watch TNT Thursday nights for basketball, NOT politics and certainly not sexist comments. As a Hillary Clinton supporter, Magic Johnson never made sexist comments about Hillary. I may be going out on a limb, but I have a hunch that it’s a party affiliation issue. 

I just left a message with TNT and let them know that I watch the show for basketball, not political digs or sexist comments. Here’s the contact information if you want to let TNT know what you think:
