George Smith conceded.

Yup. Smith conceded the election this morning. Kenny Stokes will finally get his wish of a $45,000 a year salary and a government car.

Another good reason to leave Hinds County. Any fool that would vote for Stokes is just that - a fool. Stokes is an embarrassment to his entire race.

I guess all those years building the machine finally paid off for him. Now if he'd only study government...

@1212....In reality, what happens at BOS will not impact most of the people in Hinds County. If you want to leave because of your own racism then do so, but don't blame it on the election of Stokes.

I thought I felt a tremor in the force.

Hey! How do you folks like your Democrat Party in Mississippi now?

Woo-hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

@12:48 --

I'm shocked that an apologist for the welfare-state sewer that is Jackson/Hinds County would level a charge of racism! Shocked! Even more so that you do so anonymously.

Is it racist to point out that Stokes can't craft a simple declarative sentence in the English language? Or that he substitutes "wif," "dis," and "dat" for "with," "this," and "that"?

Finally, what does your race radar tell you about YO Sheriff's campaign supporters telling people to vote solely on the issue of race? Was that "racist"?

I'll wait.

12:48, where did you study ninth grade civics? In government, the lawmakers who are closest to the people have the most impact on their lives. A huge portion of the laws and regulations that run our daily lives were passed by someone who you can get in your car and drive to see in under an hour.

Kenny and his fellow BOS are responsible for a budget of $119 million. That, in and of itself, should make you sick to your stomach.

Well, actually I'm feeling a little better about Kenny. The City's proposed budget is $317 million....sooooo....maybe he won't do as much damage with the County as I thought. Hold the pepto....

Kenny told the Free Press last week that he would resign from the City Council and only hold one office. I guess he will be running his wife, Lanita, for the Council seat.

"Stokes is an embarrassment to his entire race."

The human race, that is.

And she will win going away.

@1:10 I am shocked, just shocked that there would be another person trying to tear Jackson down. If someone you do not like wins an election most people just get over it, if that person is black in Hinds County it becomes "another execuse to move".

I have heard that Mr. Stokes has children at Harvard. Unless that's an urban legend, maybe we could tone it down a little.

From what Kingfish has exposed about the current Board of Supervisors, I will take Kenny Stokes any day. Next I hope to vote against Robert Graham.

Don't believe it. Anyone reputable can confirm this?

99.999999% certain Stokes' daughter either attends or recently graduated from Harvard Law.

The City of Jackson is finally getting rid of Stokes and soon he will be County wide. God help Hinds County............

Kingfish said...

Got mixed thoughts on this one. George is respected by many and is a gentleman, total opposite of Stokes but.........

there are all the crooked deals,the way he has run the county into the ground. He and Doug have done more damage over the years in a polite manner than Stokes could ever dream of doing at his worst.

I seem to remember when 'Tokes filed for bankruptcy a few years ago...He never did pay his creditors...as a matter of fact, he even gave a speech claiming to be proud of the fact...now that buffoon is in charge of county money?

Bankruptcy not his fault. Caused by "The Man".

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
