Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves ok.

The Lieutenant Governor's office issued the following press release:

“I can confirm that Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves was involved in a traffic accident today on Highway 49 in Collins,” said his spokeswoman Laura Hipp. “Lt. Gov. Reeves was a passenger in a Mississippi Highway Patrol vehicle and neither he nor his assigned trooper was injured. The Lt. Governor wishes to thank the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the Covington County Sheriff’s Office, the Collins Police Department and the Collins Fire Department for their rapid response to the accident.”

The passengers in the other car were transported to the hospital for minor injuries.  Apparently a car pulled out in front of his vehicle.  WDAM has more details.

4:52... Collins does have a Ward's. For any of you who haven't had a "big one" from Ward's, it will change your life.

Glad he is OK. Now that I got that outa the way, this: Every damned one of these MHP vehicles that transports 'dignitaries and their guests' travels at no less than 85 mph on our state highways. It's a fact, Jack. Ask anybody who has ever been a guest on one of those rides.

I don't know if it's a feeling of entitlement or if it's cool or if it's just stupid. But, it's a damned fact.

If the Ms. Hwy Patrol would not drive like they were heading to a fire when they have an "Elected Official" in the CONVOY, maybe these accidents would not happen. How many times have I (or you) been driving the speed limit when the Glorious Ms Hwy Patrol passed at 90 plus MPH with flashers OFF. No wonder people in Missouri and New York City are mad.

I live in northeast Mississippi but work in Jackson. I speed when driving back and forth. Going 75, sometimes 80, I routinely get passed by MHP cruisers with not lights or sirens activated. That's why I ignore the speed limit...

also, just about every jxn officer I see is talking on his/her cell phone as the Patrol the bold new city!

Tater Go Fast Go Fast said...

Every little boy, at some time or other, wanted to fly real fast in a copter or go a hundred in the Dukes of Hazard car on the living room floor. Tater-pink-cheeks just never grew beyond that. Sits in the back seat with his Roladex and Etch-a-Sketch snortin' "Punch it Goober! Punch it!"

Not much love for the Lt. Gov.

Posters attack Tate.
Are they hard for Feckless Phil?
Or Unloaded Gunn?

I like Tater and believe he's doing a good job. Glad this wreck wasn't worse. The Punch it Goober comment did make me laugh out loud.

No doubt these same folks here showing lack of sympathy for someone in a major accident love Jeesus and Pheel

Drama Alert Aisle 43 said...

6:49; Oh the drama. Save it. Where does it say this was 'a major accident'? Tater was belted in, in the back seat, with his toys and a cheesburger, totally uninjured. You might also have missed the opening where it was said he was fine after the accident.

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!!!
