Fact-checking the JFP.

The Jackson Free Press made this claim about First district congressional candidate Quentin Whitwell:

In his ads for the congressional seat, Whitwell has taken to pronouncing his surname "WIT-wul" (a la Starkville) instead of WHIT-well, as he did when he lived in Jackson.

Well, it just so happens that JJ has the commercials from Mr. Whitwell's first council run.  He does not speak at all in one of them but he does speak his name in the second commercial.  Compare that commercial to his current one.

What do you think? Did he change his accent or not?

Note: What is interesting is everyone else called him Whitwell as seen in his first commercial for Jackson city council:

Whole bunch about NOTHING.

More importantly, when he gets whatever position it is he thinks he wants, will he abandon it like he did the City Council?

How about a bill that requires idiots who leave their elected positions to pay for the special election that has to happen to fill their old position?

Look up the definition of "phony" in the dictionary and you'll see a picture of Q-Dawg.

Putting him in DC might actually be worse than Obama. At least you know where Obama stands. Q-Dawg flips his stances and home address according to the tea leaves. He gives the term "metrosexual" a new meaning.

Good job fact checking the "journalists," KF. Gotta get your stuff straight before publishing. Also, why does the JFP care about the first district congressional race?

Classic move by Sgt. Spraytan there. Darken the skin, whiten up the hair, tweak the last name, cut back on the Ferragamo's for a bit...that'll fool everybody into forgetting about the real Q.

Wonder if ISIS is shaking in their sandals about the Whitwell Doctrine?

As of 9 PM Witwul is next to last. LOL

Smart money is on Greg Pirkle or Trent Kelly

It's well after midnight and I just read this entire thread, including the introductory article by the JFP. EGAD; I should have opted for an enema. Or did I?

Looks like Kingfish has more influence in North MS than we ever thought.
Wonder where Q will move to next? Pathetic....


Kingfish said...

He just moved up there. Lived down here for years and was known to be a Jackson guy. He suddenly moves up there and claims to be one of them?

I would've been surprised if he had done much better unless he spend alot of money. Zinn was only Democrat. He was going to get some votes because of that. Tagert was an MDOT commish. He has a base. Kelly is a DA. He has a base. Pickert had some decent ads. The Doctor was pimped by Dark Horse. ;-) However, Whitwell had no base although his dad is a judge.

These Whitwells and Longwitzes just feel entitled to govern, and they keep rolling the dice until they get lucky.

JJ was instrumental in getting Whitwell to pay his overdue Hinds property tax bill.

10:03-AMEN on Longwitz. Lots of hot air. So over him & whatever he stands for today (which will change tomorrow).

I'm sorry, but how in the hell is Quentin Whitwhatever going to affect foreign policy?

Jesus, what a joke that guy is. The picture of him shooting a gun on his webpage is about as uncomfortable as they come.

I lived on his floor freshman year at Ole Miss. Despite youth, one can still glean a sense of character. I know what my impressions were then and how they remain to this day.

so Q lost.

Why no PR on that great event?

Funny to think about Quentin's campaign funding shakedown of his Jacktown connections replete with Mama Tuohy all to produce a next-to-last place finish.

Damn!! You're telling me Q-dog came in next to last?? His padner 'the chipster' told me (and everyone else) that he had 'all the DC money already lined up for Quentin - and that was a couple of days before Nunnelee's death.

Guess there were two mistakes there - one, campaigning for an election that didn't exist yet, and two, having no real idea of how campaigns work.

Mark this one down as another of the talon's election screwups. But, looking at Josh's returns for this cycle (Biloxi and airplane partner Adams) guess the chipster is only one step behind

2:05 -- Surely you're not implying that Josh Gregory got his jet money through anything other than intellect, skill and hard work.

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.
