Ashby is the clear choice and the only ADULT in the room.

I thought all the GOP heavy hitters were lined up behind Mr. Smart Budget?

Looks like the GOP heavy hitters are split. An old man, a crook and a kid. Looks like a Dorsey Carson win.

3:30, you summarize well. I would revise and say an old man, a crook, a Democrat, and a smart honest kid. I vote for the smart honest kid.

Run off: Barbour, Carson. Good GOP-DEM matchup if you think about it.

Barbour? LOLOLOLOL

God help us if Charles Barbour is in the runoff. I'll have to hold my nose and vote for Dorsey Carson.

Anonymous said...

Barbour's electability is greatly exaggerated by all the Barbours living in Ward 1.

Anonymous said...

Ashby will win in the first primary. Barbour is putting up signs even without homeowner permission, to make it look like he has all this support. Just like last time. He is a dud.

Anonymous said...

Y'all forget Charles has never lost this ward? while others have never won it?

Barbour will make the runoff. He may to be liked by the McDaniel crowd or anti-Haley group that loves to spew shit on here, but for the 99% of Northeast Jackson voters who have no idea about this website he's viewed pretty well.

The unknown Longwitz got 40% of the vote in "the ward" versus Chuckie. There's a whole lotta Republicans already lined up behind the other 4 candidates including Carson. Barbour has never run in "the ward" as it is currently configured.

Whoa whoa whoa....

Who in the world that runs for city council asks for $5000 for a fundraiser???

You do not hardly see that large of an amount listed on invites for statewide candidates.

This guy might be smart but he has no clue about politics or campaigns. He's headed for a 4th place finish behind amile

A candidate who has actual backers with that kind of dinero.

What a dumb question.

for any of those unaware of "Chuckie" Barbour's ability to lead the county, here is some proof. http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/26726899/barbour-announces-candidacy-for-jackson-city-council

Led the COUNTY, not just a ward, to 8 balanced budget. That has never been seen before under one guy. May not be the most liked guy out there, but definitely has the most experience

Anonymous said...

Hinds County budget has to be balanced per state law. It wasn't Chuckie's doing.

Anonymous said...

Harvey Johnson is experienced too.

Anonymous said...

You got one thing right 8:47 AM Barbour is the least liked guy running for the seat.

Anonymous said...

Cerebral? Maybe. He'll be utterly useless on the council. At least Carson can negotiate with the other members. Ashby's lectures will get Ward 1 nothing. The first arrogant lecture and he'll be shut out for good.

Keep dreaming 10:57. Useless. Good Lord.

After listening to Charles Barbour on the radio this morning I realized that Mr. Smart Budget actually sounds intelligent compared to the bumbling former Supervisor.

Barbour said he's best for the job because he can make sure city staff understands the differences between wood, steel reinforced and concrete reinforced bridges. WOW.

He also said he's uniquely qualified to make sure that the City always purchases the right tractor. YUP, that is what Ward 1 has been missing for all these decades. an expert tractor purchasing consultant.

And he's uniquely qualified to make sure the "right" people get contracts.

Just like his uncle and brothers ol' Charles is a trough feeding Republicrat of the highest order.

"5 star or 4 Star, it sure would suck to be a 2 Star." How insulting. Does each level of higher "star" entitle you to more access with Ashby because thats what it looks like.

6:11 most if not all fundraiser invitations have giving levels. Have you ever even made a campaign contribution?

Anonymous said...

Thinking people vote for Ashby

Thinking people vote for Ashby until they are robbed. His crime answer was pitiful.

"Giving levels" are common with charitable fundraisers too. Apparently 6:11 is not familiar with them either.

WOW- heard 4 people attended. Guess at 5k each thats good $ though. Wilson had about 12, Barbour around 50-60, Carson 40. Weakest link has been exposed.

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. 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!!!
