Phil Bryant sounds like Precious Martin today

See for yourself. Only thing difference was they weren't at a Waffle House and Phil was not saying "Black people don't need to fight each other". Notice Mr. Bryant didn't deny anything Mr. Dennis said.

Bryant always "whines" when he get nervous!

Interesting that Bryant's answer (when speaking later to the reporter's mic) was that Mississippi Republicans 'don't like a family fued and we're family in the republican party'. Sam Haskell of Amory, is part and parcell of the Miss America pageant and is clearly on record as having given upwards of 30,000 dollars to Bryant's campaign. This is a new twist (by Bryant) to lure 'industry' to the state. I suppose this is what we can expect if Bryant is elected. "Grease my palm and I'll grease your skids."

Shadowfax has touched on a sensitive issue - political patronage. There have been plenty of times when politicians took money and then did the donor's bidding, but there have also been plenty of times when the program that benefits the donor is also a good idea for everyone. Would it be good for the coast if the Miss America pageant was held there? Of course. Does this mean that Haskell isn't allowed to contribute to Phil's campaign as long as Phil wants to try and lure the pageant to Mississippi? Those are two separate actions. I'd hate that a politician wasn't able to do something that I thought was a good idea just because I'd contributed to his campaign. Bill Billingsley

I guess having the Miss Mississippi Pageant on the coast would be a bad thing. It probably wouldn't bring in any revenue for the areas affected by the oil spill. It would probably be a drain on the economy and should never have been considered.

A great deal of security is necessary to hold a Miss America pageant. I'm almost certain that Precious could get Phil and Sam a great deal on some radios.

It would not be "bad" but you are correct that it would bring very little revenue to the areas affected.... Plus, why do they need 12m of the 16m to have it? If it is a successful, vibrant organization, shouldn't it not need taxpayer support?

Shadowfax said...

My issue is with the timing. Which came first, the contribution or the pitch for the pagent? Follow the money. The casinos stand most to profit from any pageant that might take place on our coast and that's money that leaves the state.

It's not illegal (either) for an attorney general to pump millions to favored attorney friends for handling state work. This too, I presume, contributes to the economy. It's also good for a radio station to air Bryant's material in a no-bid situation. That pumps money into our economy too, right. Except that Gallo spends most of it out of state vacationing. Follow the money. Follow the favors. Follow the corruption of morals.

Well, it's pretty plain to see who believes the Miss America Pagent is a good idea and so we can follow the money and "the politics". Follow the trail - the poster who believes it's a good idea - Paul Gallo - Phil Bryant - Steve Davenport - Sam Haskell and ABC television. This is a one time per year event for Mississippi all to the tune of what, sixteen million dollars(and that is only the beginning) of the state's money? There are people on the Mississippi Gulf Coast who need housing and jobs - what an absolute slap in the face to them! That is the kind of compassion the people of Mississippi can expect from Phil Bryant if he is elected governor - THINK ABOUT THAT WHEN YOU GO TO THE POLLS TO CAST YOUR VOTES NEXT TUESDAY!

As an aside, I've googled till I'm blind. Can someone tell me what 'sixteen year career in private industry with a company car and a FOUR OHHH ONE KAYE' Mr. Bryant was in the middle of when Ronald Reagan summoned him to the white house in '86? I'm sure it's out there, but, I've been unable to find it.

Puppet gallo is almost as big of a joke as Feel Bryant.

Phil Bryant's office would not answer our inquiries about the extent of his relationship with some questionable folks and deals in Pearl River County. A 90 year old man dying of cancer sold his land to folks he had to file suit on to collect while they out obtaining loans and it appears, MDA grants for said property. The estate finally did collect less than the agreed upon price in a settlement. Bryants office would neither confirm nor deny our suspicions. I will be ill if I have to look at him on TV for the next 4 years. I hope Dennis gets some momentum going!!

No doubt you are a correspondent for the AP, the Anonymous Persons news bureau.

Do the rest of us anonymous posters a favor. Don't post such idiotic shit unless you are willing to identify yourself.

You give the rest of us long time anonymous posters here a bad name.

6:17,I am the grandaughter of the plaintiff, Delos H. Burks. Case #55-2007-0636 Delos Burks vs Mark Gibson, G9 Corp, Tyrone Gill,etc etc in Pearl River County Chancery Court. I merely wanted to know if Bryant was as cozy as it appears from some of the defendants family members facebook page. I want to know if some of the defendants recieved MDA grants while being sued to collect proceeds from the sale of the same land. Land that they were borrowing money against and yet refusing to pay my grandfather. He was 90 years old and dying of cancer at this time and though an attorney, did not retain a deed of trust. He was placed in a conservatorship soon after to protect him from financial predators both within and outside his family. I have bank and court records to corroborate all of this. I simply wanted to know what Mr. Bryant knew about any MDA grants in Pearl River County to the people involved and if he was unaware of these issues to make him aware in the hopes that he would be concerned enough about possible misuse of MDA funds to at least ask a question or two. I should know better. I just finished reading "The Kings of Tort".

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.
