This is not really college basketball-related, but the Round Mound once played at Auburn (fringe benefits included), so we’ll give ourselves a pass here. This is from Sir Charles’ recent conversation with CNN’s Campbell Brown about the political climate in this country. In this clip, Brown asks Barkley about his future political aspirations relating to a run for governor in the state of Alabama. His response is simply phenomenal.
Brown: So, you gonna run for governor?
Barkley: I’m planning on it in 2014.
Brown: You are?
Barkley: I am. I can’t screw up Alabama.
Brown: There’s no place to go but up…
Barkley: We’re number 48 in everything, and Arkansas and Mississippi aren’t going anywhere.
