What will it be?

David Baria (D-Trent Lott Hair Club for Men) tweeted this little teaser today:

Huge announcement for the Democratic Party in Mississippi coming Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Word I'm hearing is Tim Johnson, yes, Elvis himself, runs against Tate Reeves for Lieutenant Governor.   Something that also crossed my mind.  Does Jim Hood run again?  If he doesn't, and I've heard rumblings both ways, would Baria run for the job? Just thinking aloud, no special info.

I wonder how much hope the Democrats a pegging on Brandon Presley this cycle? He's about a liberal as they come and has enough good ole boy charm to really hurt Republicans in the first district.

the pendulum always swing the other way - just a matter of when.

Brandon Presley is going to announce that he skipped a meal.

The democrats are in the most republican state in the country. How important can it be? Its only BIG NEWS in their SMALL MINDS! This about as funny as Taggert saying he isn't running for AG!!!

WHats Baria gonna say..."Im here to announce I watched the Super Bowl and and finally figured out its a football game played by manly men with tight ends...how yummy!"

@10:34 Evidently you haven't seen BP lately... he has skipped several meals. Now, for the facts: Elvis, reincarnated as a Democrat and running for Lite Guv is the big NOWncement!

Haven't approved comment yet but two sources told me tonight Tim Johnson will run against Tate as a Democrat

I'll believe that when I see his sign in Mary's front yard.

Kingfish @ 11:16-you are correct, sir. Apparently Elvis hasn't left the building. ANYTHING will be better than Tater. I mean ANYTHING! I'd vote for Barbara Blackmon before I'd re-elect Tater. Amy and her truck? She'd get my vote! My plea this year-ANYONE over Tater!

Your dislike for Tater aside, the man knows finances and money manipulation. All Elvis knows about those subjects has been learned at the feet of Rudolph Warnock.

Look at Elvis' antics on the Board of Supervisors and tell me we need this man returned to a position in State Government.

5:41 Sounds like an official statement from Frontier Strategies offering their support and resources to anybody other than Tate Reeves. Lots of bad blood that will play out soon.

I saw Elvis out and about in Jackson with former Senator Gloria Williamson. I suspect Elvis is up to something.

Fyi if you didn't know it, this Elvis is evil people. I am here to tell you he is psychopathic. Glad he's a democrat.

Raise your hand if (1) you think Tim Johnson is a "prominent" person; and (2) you knew he was a republican.

Ha! Josh and Quentin can't get their shit together enough to take Tate down (not even with Delbert -- that was a dumbass idea), and they're better than any Democrat strategist in this state. Oh, bring in someone from out of state? Great idea except there isn't a Democrat candidate in Mississippi who could mount even a semi-serious challenge to Tate.

Presley is the best the Mississippi Democrats have. He has the personality and the intelligence to make a run at someone (and I said make a run, not beat), but not for statewide office.

In my best Stephen Tyler scream: "Dream on... dream on... dream on.... dream on // DREAM ON... DREAM ON... DREAM ON... DREAM ONayayayayayayay....."

Jim Hood will announce for re-election today

Elvis couldnt even beat Dick Hall. He is on a fool's errand. His ego has got the better of him this time.

Anonymous said...

Makes sense. I've noticed a drastic upswing in Tim Johnson glad-handing episodes at the Madison Kroger over the last few weeks. Something must be in the works.

Stop shooting at the decoy duck.

Josh Gregory is now the GO TO GUY if you want to fight republicans.

Elvis couldn't beat Dick Hall for transportation commissioner during a time when Hall pissed a lot of people off by advocating a gasoline tax increase. Does anyone think he has any chance of defeating an incumbent lt. gov. destined to be the next governor barring any major scandals?

Tim Johnson vs Tater it is.

This is great news. Now the Democrats have Elvis running for Lt. Governor and Grandpa Jones from Hee Haw as the head of the statewide party.

Elvis has left the party.
November 3rd can be found at Rudy's leading the singing of Heartbreak Hotel.

Looks just like last year. Photos in nursing homes.

Warnock for State Engineer!!!

Politics is great fun. I can't wait.

You mean "Bingo Elvis" is running for Lt. Gov.

Frontier Strategies will not be employed by any significant politicians this year because of what they have done to themselves. Greed has been the downfall of many. These guys are now lightning rods. Gregory has managed to do everything wrong he has touched that is visible to the public's eye. Politicians can not afford to be associated with them because of the reputation they now have.

If this amounts to a major announcement by the MS Democratic Party, God love them, they are in a hell of a lot worse shape than anyone ever dreamed.

Anonymous said...

Johnson is poison. He and Rudy would bankrupt this state. Both heavily involved in numerous scandals in Madison County.

Elvis switching political parties improves both parties!

Hey, democrats, in the words of Admiral Akbar, "It's a trap!"

Notice the humor used here as opposed to the vehement diatribe against a conservative woman who has announced for a county office? Hmmm... Little bit of gender bias in the bloggers? Me thinks so.

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.
