Fire up the robocalls.

This robocall attacking Margaret Barrett-Simon went out last night:

This 'robocall' is ineffective and meaningless. If this is representative of the strategy of her detractors, somebody needs to fire a consultant.

I am not a political junkie, so KF tell me the logic of that attack. I don't see how Mrs. Simon is a player in the Mayor's race.

8:46, I think the only purpose of the ad is to create the implication of shady back-room deals between Barrett-Simon and Yarber. Whoever ran this is obviously not a fan of Yarber's. The Council woman is collateral damage.

The one thing for sure is that it DID NOT come from the Lumumba camp,they would not have had anyone speaking in a "white man's" voice, which shows you how desperate and clueless and culturally tone deaf all of the other candidates are in the race besides Lumumba. This thing is over already, Antar will win fairly big, why don't the rest of those candidates maybe try moving somewhere else that is "majority/minority" and getting elected to the top job, 'cause it ain't happening in Jackistan! They don't know how to represent and harness the energy behind "The Dream"...

I thought the call was very precious.

I thought the voice sounded a lot like you, Kingfish.

Haha! I see what you did there...

Yawn. In that ward that will send a message that Yarber is the guy to vote for. Maybe it is a secret double-fake from the Yarber campaign.

Martin will do about anything for money, until it comes to his ultimate decider reigning hin-in, Bennie...

If Barrett gets is race it will be to draw voted away from Yarber with no chance of Barrett winning.So stay out and let Yarber have a shot. That is what the message says to me.

Agree with 11:13. Yarber may and hopefully will become the choice among wards 1 and 7. If MBS is in she would take votes from him. Rumor was she may be bribed to enter by candidate who feels threatened by Yarber. Yarber needs to be careful he doesnt appear to have all the white vote behind him(even though he will) because that would hurt him in runoff.

Some of the posts make sense but someone smarter than me needs to tell me what possible reward Mrs Simon gets for making a deal?

11:35.. Money

It's official, Yarber is recipient of Leland and his group's endless cash. The deal was negotiated by Ben Allen and Chip Reno. Add Socrates to the mix, with the money he made off Haley and the Katrina cleanup, and you have the ideal candidate. He becomes the "Transformer". The new Jonathan Lee/Marshand Crisler with a very dark complexion. No doubt Tony will be eating free at Bravo's in a few days.

What a novel idea, let the Black Community pick the candidate that LS and the Repubs can back rather than LS and the boys picking one to try and sell to the Black Community.

Kingfish said...

Let me see, Chokwe Junior went a beggin' to the business community. A couple of lily white law firms known for doing lots of bond business are supposedly getting behind one candidate whose family is known for bond work. They all have their hands out and they are all trying to cut deals.

Now if I'm the one giving advice to the business community, it is don't try to manufacture candidates or run people no one takes seriously in the black community. Work with black community leaders who will work with you on some issues and when y'all do disagree, do it without being disagreeable to each other.

As for the last comment, you know more than I do so I will defer to your genius.

hmmm, I do think it is interesting that Yarber has his headquarters in Ward 7 and not in his own beloved Ward 6. I have yet to see a campaign sign in his own ward, but saw several as I drove down state street to meet my wife for lunch today. I don't doubt it one bit.

This race will likely be between Yarber and Little Lumumba. Harvey and Priester will knock each other out because their base is the same crowd. Nobody likes Regina, but she's the last to know. Horhn would probably be best for the job out of the choices we have, but he probably won't get the vote.

Yarber had a mokawk a few weeks ago and dresses like a clown. I just can't take him seriously. Lumumba doesn't have a clue.

It's all pretty sad...

This is all very sad. Can we please focus on the issues and who has the most experience, and who can continue to build relationships for, Tony Yarber. I see theses comments fail to mention ALL other wards, as if they are irrelevant.

Anonymous said...

Umm, @4:22, the topic of the post IS Ward 7...since ya know, that's there the robo call targeted. I smell a Yarber operative. If we are talking about who has the most experience, then your vote would have to be for the veteran Harvey Johnson. Surely, no?

Crazy how paranoid black posters over here are. They are so obvious. So afraid of 18% of the population. Read that again.

My black brothers. You are 82% of the population. 82%. EIGHTY TWO PERCENT.

Get your act together, get your "power brokers" together (you fear the 18% have "power brokers" that can make our black brothers do things they don't want to), quit fighting among yourselves in tribal type, vicious, vile warfare and run the damn city. YOU ARE IN POWER. DEAL WITH IT.

In four words: Man Up. Grow Up.

Dayum 6:01. Best post I have read in my life.

People all over have an opinion on Jackson city politics--but don't have a vote. Send all the money you want though. Candidates just spend it on stupid stuff and robo calls. Or just picking up the tab for all your amigos. Election time is party time in this town. Serious City Hall stuff is on hold for a couple months. If you love kissing babies and talking, its heaven.

Pretty good grass 8:12? Dude. All over the map. Deep toke. Once again. Together.

6:01 you rock. Rock. So all true, sadly.

Next level 6:01. Next level. On the money. Brothers too cloudy with hate to see what is slapping them in the face.

KF. Please repost 6:01 somewhere every day.

Mississippi is a CIA playground for political ops since the Cold War. They were not going to permit a civilian uprising in Miss. It engineered most of the civil rights era gubernatorial races here to maintain the rule of law and to test pol op theory. Is it any wonder that they have an Ole Miss program for analysts? The business jets you see in the air here are testing new Jstar gear for themselves and the Pentagon.

Got a political survey call just now that was the most extensive political questioning I have ever seen. It was an automated query of various one on one match ups. Asked if experience mattered on a 1-10 scale. Asked if I would vote for a woman. Just got a personal call from the Priester campaign just now. Told him I was decided for Antar. Whew!

1:23. So much for your black helicopter crap.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

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.
