NBA great: On the court, I can kick Obama's ass

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business, but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail to the international stage, there's always something that gets a laugh or a second glance. Here are some of the things you might have missed:

Barkley's court

One of the NBA's greats has a message for President Obama when it comes to his basketball game: You're toast. "I'm an old fat guy now, but I'll kick his ass," Charles Barkley told Conan O'Brien, referring to the two playing a one-on-one basketball game.

    He can do it in the classroom too. And he's nowhere near an A student.

    Like all Democrats Obama can only go left, it is amusing to sit back and watch them run around in circles.

    BRING IT ON!! I would love to see that. President Obama is a "One Hand Shooter" but WATCH that RIGHT HOOK!!! lol And keep in mind Barkley – it's NOT over until your FAT ASH sings!!!!

    I think this is healthy for our country but HATERS will see this as a WASTE of TIME when the so-call "economy" sucks and JOBS are needed. Dang, little do you know, the WORLD still spins and the same problems will be here TOMORROW that exist TODAY!!

    In the meantime – President Obama will continue to Move America Forward even after SHUTTING Barkley DOWN!!!

    Would really be great if the Ticker could tell the story about the latest scandal involving John Conyers, or maybe why the unions, who lobbied so hard and gave so much money, time and effort to passing health care reform are now opting out and why the rest of us can't. Instead we are fed more Obozo dwaddle.
