Basketball legend Charles Barkley once told a story about his mother confronting him about supporting Republicans.
“Republicans are for rich people,” Barkley’s mother tells him.
“Momma,” he says, “We are rich!”
Barkley’s words, like so few of his over the years, ring true today, as Denver Broncos legend and rich person John Elway has announced his support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. This should come as a shock to the three people who didn’t know Elway was rich and a very outspoken proponent of the War on Terror.
Denver’s C.E.L.L. anti-terrorism center was funded by Elway.
