Antar has found his own voice. Its clear and distinct. He may pull a third of the vote on the 8th.

Antar is a nice young man with NO past record of anything anywhere. NADA. If his last name was Smith his candidacy would be laughable. Google his name. Nothing.

Antar has ZERO experience. None. NADA. ZILCH.

Harvey has a lot of experience, but that doesn't make him electable.

In a failed municipality, the experienced candidates are the ones who served and failed.

"Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment." - Attributed to Will Rogers

Notice that it doesn't say all experience comes from bad judgment.

In the case that some experience comes from bad judgment we hope those vying for the position of Mayor will be able to show their recent good judgments have proved that they have learned from their mistakes.

Just don't try to fool the people. They often see right way that the wool pulled over their eyes was nothing but a deceptive yarn.

LEAD! Don't just play a part assigned to you by handlers.

I hope Jackson's new mayor will prove to be all we expect and more.

Chokwe Jr. has less experience than Priester. Of the major named candidates Chokwe Jr. is the least experienced.

Antar is a manipulated kid. If he wins, his Detroit led staff will own him and the city. Period.

I find it interesting that all of the posters are zone focused on Antar. Hey Yarber acolytes! (Don't be rude, speak back)

Antar should not win. He hasn't earned it.
If, in the years to come, he demonstrates himself to be a worthy leader for ALL, THEN he should seek a position of leadership.
As for now, I see Antar as simply someone who has been persuaded to run for mayor simply by riding in on the coattail of his father, garnering a sympathy vote from his father's supporters.

I like Priester and Yarber, so far.

Neither priester or yarber can defeat Lulumba--even with Bennie or Leland supporting them.

9:23- I hope you're wrong.
While I'm not the least bit impressed with the likes of Leland or Bennie supporting anyone, I'm counting on wiser minds casting their vote for anyone other than the son of Chokwe the elder.
This race isn't like a dead tribal leader's son inheriting the position through ancient customs, though it appears that way to some. Passing of the sacred spear, so to speak.
Surely folks won't buy into that idiocy.

Worthy to run? Haha! Too bad that wasn't a requirement for 29 year old Tate Reeves, junior banker turned State Treasurer. He had less experience handling clients' money before being voted in to handle the entire state's treasury than the number of years Antar has been an attorney. But, of course I'm sure we should ONLY apply that standard to Antar now. Purely laughable. You should be more worried for the candidacy of MBS. God help us all if she wins.

Worthy to run? HA

Looking back a few years was Cliff Finch worthy to run? Other than his lunch pail ad that appealed to blue collar workers he was a joke to many.
What about Dowdy and many others? Which elected official has a proclivity for sucking female toes?
No, Antar is not being singled out. But you knew that....

@9:13 right! Finch had only been out of law school TWO YEARS before being elected to the House of Representatives.

That would be the toilet seat height engineer Ronnie Musgrove.

Lack of experience didn't slow down our POTUS, and look what a lovely job he is doing. (You DO recognize sarcasm, don't you?)

Anonymous said...

Experience...Harvey Johnson has it and you see what a fine job he did, don't you? Margaret has the most years on city council, and has managed to only make a third look worthy something...(Recognize that sarcasm?)

All you idiots talking about Chokwe having no experience honestly think that matters? Are you aware of our situation in the White House?

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. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
