Runner-up to Kenneth Stokes: Chokwe

You voted Kenneth Stokes the worst politician in the Jackson metro area last week. However, the vote was so lopsided, JJ reran the poll without Mr. Stoke's name to see who the true runner-up would be. Once again, not even close: Jackson City Councilman Chokwe Lamumba. After him came Madison County Supervisor Tim Johnson, then Attorney General Jim Hood.

This is beginning to look like RAAAAACISM.

My favorite part?

And the answer is "Doung Anderson."

"What is brown and sounds like a bell, Alex."

Wasn't Sheriff McMillin's name in the last poll? If so, why was he excluded this time?

Lumumba is going to run for Jackson mayor.

I forgot, 10:06. My fault.

I think this shows that your readers are mainly White Republicans....

You should poll politicians on their effectiveness for the community...Stokes is not a bad the contrary...he's a genius...he's been elected for over 20 years...and his ward is one if the worst in the city,state, and nation....

Paul Mitchell said...

Anon 4:14, I'll be the first to defend Kenny. I said on the last poll that there is one thing that you can say about Kenny and that is that he is too stupid to be corrupt.

By the way, his method of campaigning is very simple, kiss up to the church ladies in his area. It works swimmingly.

4:14 : Define "effectiveness for the community". Kenny's ward was a toilet when he first ran, and after who knows how many years under his leadership, it's still a toilet. Bennie Thompson's consituents are just as dumb to not realize absolutely nothing has gotten better with him in office.

Paul Mitchell said...

Anon 2:19, there are some of us that do not look for our elected officials to improve our lives. Of course, I understand your point.

Keep in mind that in our current state of political stupidity, Kenny is KING! At least he is not a thieving criminal though, so that is something.

Yeah, it's looking like your readers think being Black is worse than enriching yourself in office or wasting taxpayer money or helping one's financial backers avoid the legal consequences of their actions.

Lumumba hasn't been in a position to DO much of anything.

I guess being a white Republican is a license to steal as your base is well programmed to overlook anything you do. Demonizing has worked!

Kingfish said...

Lamumba probably got it because of his rhetoric although you are right, he really hasn't done anything and he wasn't who I voted for.

Paul Mitchell said...

Anon 9:03, Democrats get indicted eight to one more than Republicans.


Kingfish said...

And if they are going to be racist in their choosings, at least pick Banks or Blackmon, they are much worse.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
