Check out this short clip from the Mayoral debate last week:

C'mon Kingfish, "Submitted without comment." Really?

"Submitted right above and next to other candidate advertising" would be more appropriate.

Priester is clearly saying that no other city in Mississippi is at the center of transportation with the I-20/I-55 crossroads AND an airport. We are a connected hub of travel, and should use that to our advantage.

I personally think he's right. It's time to stop making excuses on why we can't succeed, and start looking at how to succeed with what we have.

Waaaaaaaah. This site has had fun with Harvey, had fun with John Horhn, had fun with Ms. Quinn, and had fun with Chokwe Senior.

Kingfish said...

He did say that? Listen again.

I know what he meant but its too good to pass up. Quit taking yourselves so seriously. At least he didn't say 57th state.

Kingfish said...

And just to please you, I took down the Yarber post. I will put it back up when there are some posts between the two.

That is what you wanted, right?

Actually he said I-55 and 220. That was funny too.

There are a few other teaching hospitals in Mississippi with Family Practice residency programs, although nothing the size of UMMC, of course.

He doesn't seem to understand the difference between I-20 and I-220 either.

I don't know why he's bragging about "kicking out" Watkins - at least Waykins got the King Edward rehabbed and running as a private business again after 30 - 40 years.

And bragging about the airport seems like terrible timing, as the election with just about coincide with the largest carrier in Mississippi abandoning "the only airport in Mississippi".

I flew out of New Orleans the last time I flew, and might be getting used to it in the future. Discount airlines offering lots of direct flights - two of us saved $600 for round-trips to Denver over Southwest's cheapest fares.

Priester rocks! Does anyone on this blog have a degree from Harvard. Didn't think so. Most of the Anonymous bloggers need to hook up with the BLOG " I hate everything". I'll be Cup's in Flowood tomorrow. I'll buy you a cup of coffee. Wear a blue shirt.

Who killed the mayor? said...

Ironic since even the airport moved to the suburbs.

Nobody is hating on Priester or bashing him. Making fun of him for a slip of the tongue, yes. It's called political satire and humor. Happens all the time to both parties so get over it.

So What? said...

What percent of voters in the upcoming election might read this blog? Let's have a poll. My guess is 3%.

Actually, technically, although it's surrounded on all sides by the city of Pearl, the airport is in Jackson, located at 100 International Dr, Jackson, MS 39208. Just saying.

Hawkins Field sez wtf?

Don't confuse a mailing address with a physical location there 6:22. Google maps are your friend. JAN is firmly planted in Rankin County.

he probably meant the only "international" airport in the state

Anonymous said...

He's obviously not aware that we have two additional international airports, both on the Coast: Stennis International & Gulfport-Biloxi International.

Irrelevant though, . . . I'm waiting for Octavian's commercials.

Trent Lott International Airport in Jackson County.

7:23 is a dumbass. The city of Jackson owns the airport property that is firmly planted in Rankin County. Knowledge is your friend.

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.
