I Come From Alabama...

I was gonna name this post, "All I want for Christmas, 2010," but it didn't have the same ring to it. I also toyed with calling it "If you can have a former Mr. Universe run and win as governor of California, We can get the Dream Team into the governor's mansion in Alabama."

I only hope Sir Charles is serious this time around.

(Though I hope he wasn't a Sociology Major when he was at Auburn....)

Alabama's last Democratic governor, Don Siegelman, said Barkley has become a role model for many people and "would make an excellent candidate for high office."

Charles once said he wasn't a role model.

But he's right about this:
"There are too many black kids and their parents who do not value a good education," he said. "There are places where a black kid who is a good student and tries to speak correctly, you hear stuff like, 'He's trying to be white.' Well, I say, if that's true, we need more kids trying to be white."
