Dems slam Christie & Bryant

The Mississippi Democratic Party issued the following press release:

Scandal-Plagued Chris Christie to Fundraise with Phil Bryant

Today, embattled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will visit Mississippi to campaign with Governor Phil Bryant and fundraise for the MSGOP. While Governor Bryant may be proud to stand with a politician embroiled in scandal, Democrats think Mississippi deserves better.

“Much like Bryant, Christie claims to be a problem-solver who gets things done, but not only has his administration been synonymous with abuse of power, his failed leadership has driven his state's economy and finances into the ditch and left the middle class even further behind. The last thing Mississippi needs is one more crony politician. Mississippians deserve better." - Ouida Meruvia, Mississippi Democratic Party spokesperson

Christie is the best that Feel and his MSGOPHALEY party can bring-in? Really? Guy is probably being ratted-out by his aides and appointees up at the Fed Courthouse in New Jersey right now in the US Attorney deal-cutting room.

Agree 100% with 7:51 That's like bringing a lame horse to the Derby. No chance and a waste of feed.

Oh my gracious if this isn't the POT calling the KETTLE BLACK!! The same dems that want to push someone like Hillary Clinton down our throats?? No thanks...

Plus I thought the big guy was a friend of their Communist-in-Chief?

No different 8:46, really, than Republican candidates who reach out using racial animus to black Donkeycrats when their own legislative records no longer resonate with actual party voters.

I have a strict rule not to be seen in public in the company of anyone currently/about to be under indictment. It's beyond me why the deputy is bringing Tony Soprano to town. This only serves as further proof that the deputy is out of touch and bless his heart, just not right. Sadly, people will attend this little freak show and post pics with the deputy and Tony Soprano on Instagram and Facebook. More disturbing, the deputy, who is not right, bless his heart, will easily walk into reelection. Texas is looking better with each passing day.

The NJ governor must be desperate to raise funds. National figures typically avoid MS like the plague..

Let's see...Christie, Bush, Paul, Rubio...maybe little ol' Mississippi is on the map after all. Thanks, Governor Bryant, for bringing these Presidential contenders to our state. You regular naysayers can have their fun, but be sure to tell me when Rickey Bobby brings anyone by. I'll eat my hat on home plate of Trustmark Park when Hillary or Pocahontas or Crazy Joe hit town.

10:12 Stop lying. Christie was NJ's version of Rudy Guiliani - he was a badass prosecutor who took on the NJ Mafia and put them in jail. That's a major reason why a Repub got elected gov in a 95% blue state.

He was exonerated of any involvement with that dumb stunt pulled by underlings, who have been convicted (and I think they were sentenced last week).

11:22 Don't forget Ben Carson's appearance in Jackson last summer (although his publisher arranged that, not the gov).

Time for indictment problems for Helicopter Christie.

Governor Bryant wanted to talk about anti corruption legislation with Governor Christie?

Chris Christie Vetoes Anti-Corruption Law To Limit Wall Street Campaign Cash

The bipartisan legislation on Chris Christie's desk on Monday was designed to stop New Jersey public officials from delivering lucrative pension deals to their campaign contributors. Gov. Christie vetoed the bill -- at the same time his administration faces a new investigation into New Jersey pension fees paid to financial firms, some of whose executives made contributions to Republican groups backing Christie. The legislation also would have required the pension system to fully disclose all Wall Street fees, a provision Christie said would be "disadvantageous."

Typical Demorat! Just overlook all the scandals the Clinton's have been involved in! Bill and Hillary are the poster children for "Honest Government"! Yeah, right!

Here's the bright side if Hillary is elected: years of stories, photos and video of Bill (wearing no pants) chasing the interns down the halls of the White House. Better than SNL.

Where was Cindy Hyde Pony Smith?

Watch him in a Town Hall forum. He speaks pretty plainly about government employees and their benefits and how Unions connected to government employees are bankrupting cities and states(CA). He is the only one I know of, other than Trey Gowdy, that will not tip toe around the issues. In my opinion we need people to speak plainly and go directly into financial issues plaguing our country. Most politicians view the issues he deals with as hand grenades.
I think Christy is alright but he won't make a big step into big governement without big help from the south.

11:06; Christie comes from 'big union' territory. He can moan til the cows come home about education unions, but the fact is, he can do nothing about them and has lived with them for his entire life. He knows that he can squawk about unions in a state like Mississippi and get an ovation; however, his state is riddled with unions and he never has nor never will be able to do a damned thing about them.

Christie is all talk about unions. Scott Walker is about action.

Not a supporter of Christie, but the comparison between Christie and Walker is flawed. Walker and his fights with the unions was successful largely because since 2011 Wisconsin legislature has been in control of Republicans. NJ has not had a Republican legislature in several decades. Walker was able to get the legislation passed - and for that I laud him highly. Christie has fought them with little hope of winning anything that takes legislation.

And while at the discussion, don't forget Kaisach in Ohio. Also successful fighting entrenched unions as Gov there.

Christie is not my choice for the Repub nominee. Would take him if he gets nod - wouldn't be a bad choice but I still have problems with his costing Romney in 2012 and giving us Obama for another term.

But am not going to condemn Christie in a comparison of the political climate difference between NJ and WI.

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.

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.
