Cecil jumping in?

Looks like Representative Cecil Brown (D-Xanadu) is taking some baby steps towards running for Public Service Commissioner.

Mr. Brown told JJ he is indeed running for the position.  Republican Lynn Posey is the incumbent.  Mr. Brown said he established the committee for fund-raising purposes, as he considered it the ethical thing to do.  Let the games begin.

Why do dimocraps refer to their party as democratic? They're democrats; nothing democratic about them.

HA HEE HO HO HO!!!! Cecil is such an idiot. Please run, please please please.

Brown wins this. Posey has worn out his welcome and is way too cozy with the industry.

Anonymous said...

11:06 is an idiot. First off, "dimocraps" is a lame insult. Secondly, the name of the party is the Democratic Party so that is why it is referred to as the Democratic Party. I don't have time to educate you further, but I'd advise you to go look up the definition of democratic before you come back here spouting your talk-radio infused ignorance.

I think his email address is, but I'm not sure.

As for this race, it'll be close like Hall's race in 2011 but Posey will win by about 5 points unless there is some huge Democratic wave next year which is very unlikely at this point.

Democrats talk about the demographics of the central district all day long, yet they don't seem to win there.

Posey is nowhere near the politician that Cecil Brown is. Can't run away from that vote for the Kemper disaster.

Anonymous said...

Even though central district is not heavily impacted by Kemper County/Mississippi Power, Posey will not be re-elected due to his vote on the plant.

Southern District PSC could very well go tea party due to the KC debacle.

If any incumbent beats a challenger on the Public Service Commission then party loyalty trumps intelligence!

Cecil Brown has more support from Republicans than the Republicans care to admit.

If anything, Kemper's been a net benefit for the Central District when you consider the jobs in Lauderdale/ Kemper. Rate hikes largely affected the southern district.

The Southern District going Tea Party? Which Democrat is the candidate this time?

Anonymous said...

I always respected Cecil. Different politics than me in a lot of cases but he seems to be a really classy man.

Anonymous said...

PSC election will be all about Kemper County...all districts.

Presley has made more out of the Miss Power debacle and he has no rate payer impact and no jobs etc.

Posey and Bentz obviously rolled over for big utility. Bentz is gone, so Posey is going to have make some good moves to keep his job.

In the next year will probably see more cost overruns.

Hosemann will easily defeat Tate.

Remember the Senate poll a year ago

McDaniel 26
Hoseman 25
Reeves 4

What is PSC salary? I might run.

Novice at 5:09 - you think that poll means anything about statsewide elections in 2015?

Unless you are Dilbert who thinks a silly ad with an old lady will win an election of substance you should take your deck of cards and go back to Harrah's in V'burg. (Yes, I know they are closed! That's why I suggested it)

(1) Name ID
(2) Check favorability
(3) No Crosstabs
(4) Two years out

Want me to keep going? Dilbert has pissed off more folks than Tater could ever be able to do. And Tatertot has the best record around for good Republican issues (which will matter in a primary, unless Dilbert chooses to run as a Democrat, which with his support of early voting and other voting issues he could easily do.)

We all recognize that Dilbert thinks he should be in charge of everything - but with the absolute incompetence he has shown as to his knowledge of election rules - we also recognize that he actually shouldnt be in charge of anything.

Cecil has always needed a public job,it's the only time anyone will pay any attention to him.

Cecil Brown needs to stay completely out of this. It's a big enough mess already!

Cecil Has A Face For Radio said...

This bunch of Yahoos is so behind the curve. It's been known for weeks that Cecil is joining Gallo on the morning show. There are only nineteen people listening to the program now with a goal of ratcheting that up to forty. Big Daddy gonna have to put Paul on meds when Cecil enters the Green Room.

9:21 pm Cecil has never needed a public job. He was very successful in the private sector. He started Tann, Brown accounting firm, sold his interest and then partnered with Tim Medley as a successful financial manager. Indeed, he helped us be more successful in the market! We will retire very comfortably!
He lives modestly because neither he nor his wife have a frivolous bone in their bodies. They also have no debt. Whatever they buy , they pay for outright and consider it needed and a practical expense.
Not only are he and his wife extremely bright, but their children are as well. Both have very successful careers. And, Cecil's wife raised his children from his first marriage from the time they were small. They adore her and are also very successful.
Cecil and Nancy are active and loved in their church . They are quietly generous. They don't donate to get recognition but because they considered it the right thing to do.
Yes, he and his wife are always classy as 3:29 pm pointed out.
It's why he has always had , not just Republican support but has close friends who are Republican and very wealthy Republicans to boot.
You can disagree with his political positions, but any candidate who tries to attack his character will find that Cecil has too many loyal friends who will be outraged.
Anyone who actually knows Cecil and Nancy have immense respect for both of them.
And, what I now know about you 9:21 pm is that you and your family are not well informed about native Mississippians and their social relationships and family or you'd know better than to make your silly post.

A Stupid House Member who Needs Cecil's Guidance said...

It will be comedy to watch Cecil lecture the two other Commissioners on how little they know. Considering that Presley will be on his side, it will only be the Southern Commissioner. I'd like to see how Tony Smith takes it.

Anonymous said...

I looked up KNUCKLEHEAD in the dictionary. It had a big picture of Cecil with a bunch of arrows pointing at it. If you have spent any time with him around the capitol you would know he is an angry little man, little as in both mind and body, whom no one respects or gives 2 cents about anything he says. Basically a joke.

Anonymous said...

If Cecil feels the need to " lecture",8:14 am , which I doubt, you must indeed be STUPID and didn't bother to do due diligence to learn the FACTS of the subject under discussion!

Clueless, is, extremely common in the House!!!!! And, the definition of being caught uninformed is to whine that they are being " lectured".

So, that pegs you as immature as well!

Too many Representatives vote " how they feel" or as instructed by their party. And, have massive egos to make up for their lack of energy and brain matter.

You are the lobbyist's favorite as all we have to do is tell you how very wonderful you are and you do our bidding!

You should have signed yourself" I don't have time even to read a bill "

Anonymous said...

So what does that say November 8, 2014 at 9:54 AM for all the Republicans who kept voting him into office?

Anonymous said...

Cecil is a prick, ask anyone who HE disagrees with in the Legislature. He needs attention and only Bill Minor gives a damn about him or his policies anymore.

Anonymous said...

But, but, but the Republicans in his House district kept re-electing him over and over and over.

Anonymous said...

12:48 pm I'm quite certain that it isn't Cecil who is the prick.

You're obviously one of the pricks who can't tolerate disagreement because you can't defend your reasons for disagreement with anyone who's bothered to do their homework.

If you were smart, you'd understand that if you could defend your point of view with facts, you'd be able to take apart any argument Cecil might make.

That there are many other legislators whose egos get bruised as well is hardly a surprise.

I'm spent too much time at the Capitol having to hide how appalling most of you are!

You really shouldn't let the groupies' passes and the lobbyists' flattery go to your head ...either head!

Anonymous said...

@ 10:05, Cecil is certainly intelligent. He just can't accept that some people see all of the same facts and utilize a different ideology for reaching conclusions. There's no reason to be a jerk when reasonable people disagree.

Anonymous said...

9:11 pm One shouldn't filter facts through ideology. That's called bias. You can't make facts fit an ideology nor are ideologies intended to be so inflexible as your comment suggests.

What I see in the legislature is that those who don't understand that ideologies have to be adaptable to facts and realities and be functional, seem to personalize debate on issues when their dearly held beliefs don't fit the facts and they appear narrow minded and stupid as a result.

I'm quite sure the true behavior of a " jerk" like name calling which you have done rather than give a specific example, is not what Cecil does. What he does is call you on unfounded claims with specifics and to you, that is threatening.

Or else, he simply gave you a dose of your own medicine and you can dish it out but can't take it.

Pray tell what do the basic principles of logic, communication and psychology have to do with a crazy judge in Texas?

No other human can make you " feel" anything. Maturity is the ability to control your emotions. You choose how you react to exchanges of information and dialogue . If you are secure and well informed, you aren't threatened by disagreement. If mature, you understand that name calling is a poor defense mechanism used when someone feels threatened and insecure. To call someone a name says a great deal about you and nothing about the person you are disparaging.
Mature people have enough verbs and adjectives to defend their positions without resorting to personal attacks.

Maturity was defined specifically in the 7th grade in my school system but I had had a few lessons on the subject from parents and extended family.

Further learning about what is or isn't functional human behavior should continue as one ages. It's called gaining wisdom.

But, some people just grow up with good role models.

Political shrews apparently grew up in dysfunctional homes where verbal abuse was common.

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.
