Good touch putting the two liquor ads under the article.

Senator Burton is a really good guy who is considerate to all, and that matters if you have a legislative need but dont know much about the process. However, he is going to have to go cold turkey and quit the drinking. I hope folks will let this go and let the good Senator move on if he makes the changes he needs to make.

He only blew a .1, ladies. (Yes, I know the limit is .08 now.)

6:55. I agree. Senator Buton is a very nice guy and not one of the fake pricks that strut around the other top offices of the Capitol.

He should resign. We need people with ethical, moral, and personal standards in office. Nothing wrong with having a drink, but dont drive. He is a disgrace to the State and to his position. Resign now.

And we all know that when it comes to pricks you're a damn aficionado.

Did you call for John Horhn to resign @8:08 PM?

Nice guy? Bullshit. He's so far up the lieutenant gov's ass he can't see the light of day. ALL he does is give lip service "I support you guys...blah blah bullshit". He votes just as the lt gov orders him to. He has no ethics, doesn't look out for the people in his district & ONLY looks out for the lt gov and his own pockets. It's time for the Republucans to unite against this tyrant (Tate reeves). They are so worried about keeping a stupid flag, taking over an airport, preventing gays from having equal rights, & keeping transgender people out of a bathroom. Sounds like they need to clean up their own stinking backyards. Out with the current leadership & campaign finance reform!

940- While I'm the one who said Terry is a nice guy, which is true ( at least he is personable), I have to confess that you are correct in stating the other side of things: Tator and Feel have driven our dear Terry to err and stray on behalf of their damnable social legislation that will handicap Mississippi's economy from here to the Kingdom come, restricting jobs, money and our future prospects. Thank you for balancing my sentimental observations with reality. Regardless of what their polls tell them, Tator and Feel's historic legacies are diminished accordingly by the economic harm they have done by their stupid social legislation.

Terry is a good guy. Known him socially for 15 plus years.

He votes the will of his constituents....conservative on all issues.

For his safety and others, he does need to consider stopping drinking.

The next one is a serious offense with heinous repurcussions.

Good luck Terry

so he gets a pass because he's a nice guy you know.

kids who break into homes deserve Parchman.

crime is crime folks. both should get third chances or not...

Senator Burton is a super nice guy. One of the few republicans that I really like.

@4:29- I agree with you that SOCIALLY he is a good guy. However, I don't think he was elected to be a socially nice guy. I 100% disagree with you that he votes for the people in his district. I'm sorry, but you have no idea what you are talking about. Just like several of the people who posted above......he votes for Terry C and Tate Reeves and no one else. He has supported legislation that has hurt the people in his district for fear that disagreeing with Tate will jeopardize his position in the Senate. Period. He has desired this position since the dawn of time. He was Amy Tuck's lap dog (begging to get the status he now has) and now that's what he is to Tate. I've been around politics and the MS Legislature for a long time. I don't care which side of the issues you stand, but one thing is very certain. NEVER has it been this bad. You have a dictator in Tate Reeves. He doesn't allow senators to represent their constitutants. He is not good for our state and not good for the political process in our state. I firmly believe that we will all look back on these years and the damage to our state, our reputation, and our economy will be evident for generations to come.

@844 yes he should resign as well. we need people with integrity. not people who abuse the system. Also term limits for all elected officials would be nice

Am I the only one that caught this----The Honorable Senator Burton initially lied to the WLBT reporter when asked about his arrest. He first said he wasn't arrested. He later called back and said that misunderstood the question. Terry, Terry, Terry, let me teach you something I learned a long time ago. When my momma caught me doing something wrong, I'd get a spanking. When I got caught doing something wrong and then lied-I'd get TWO whoopings. We all know that lying is what Tater Tot Reeves encourages. But, in this instance, you probably need to rethink Ole Tate's rules.

One other thing-I saw where Tater released a statement saying the judicial system would take care of this. Two things 1) they sure will because all eyes will be watching it. Second offense, hopefully, will result in some jail time for you. 2) Ain't it funny how Tater washes his hands of you pretty quickly. You done a lot of his dirty work and now he's done with you. Kinda ironic. Sell your soul to the devil and this is what happens. Lastly-I know I said 2 things, but I have a third 3) If this happened in the House, Phillip would take care of business, meaning you would be immediately stripped of your role. Tater on the other hand, he's just ole tater.

@10:42 that is the problem. Nobody with standards wants to run because it is so corrupt. Democrats and republicans. They are all the same when the microphones and cameras are off. In it for the money.

Terry C made a mistake - a big mistake, but face it folks - we all have made mistakes, we all have family members who have had DUI's and we don't turn our back on them. Make no mistake Terry needs help and I would hope that Tate Reeves will help him find it and stand by Terry C as he gets on with his life. He has made a good Pro Tempore of the Senate and I hope that the residents of his district will stand tall with him. It is my hope that Tate will stand by Terry as a friend. I googled the "Intoxilyzer 8000" and found many articles as to the reliability of the machine. People - do the same thing and google it and read the articles and comments. I only wish the best for Terry C and his wife Darlene. May God bless them.

I hope Senator Burton will get help. The legislature is in recess. He should take some time for himself.

John Dough said...

Why wasn't the accident box checked on the arrest report?

Anonymous said...

Sen Burton cannot be "stripped" of his title Pro Tempore by Tate... that position is elected by the members, not appointed by Lt Gov. Also, Burton is clearly voting and leading according to the will of his constituents, as evidenced by his repeated reelection over decades. And, there are a lot of Republicans that think the Senate is heading in the right direct ion under Tate and Terry B. Many Tea Partyers are in full agreement with Tate as to both tax cuts and ceasing the bond projects. Using Burton's unfortunate event to hammer Tate and the Senate is wrong. Hopefully Sen Burton will address his personal issues and move forward with his leadership. Good people make mistakes.

2nd offence, I know people who have received 10-12 DUIs. Still driving and drinking.

6:48: "I 100% disagree with you that he votes for the people in his district."

How do you explain his tenure, then?

Anonymous said...

This is all under Tate's leadership. Tate is to blame. We need someone like McDaniel or Watson running the show and this crap wouldn't happen. Tate is just as bad as Burton.

Hmmm,I-20 Eastbound at/near mile marker 91. That would be about 3 miles East of the Forest Exit 88 and near the rest stop. Maybe he couldn't figure out which restroom to use?

12:21, he must have forgotten his birth certificate. Got to carry that in case you have to go to the bathroom. Never know when it will be show and tell time.

12:06 - glad you helped explain to the great unwashed where all this hate (attacks on Terry C and transferring it Tate Reeves) is coming from. Glad to know that the McD GOP forces are still alive after the drubbing last weekend.

This is a bigger conversation a out Tate's failed leadership. He might not have appointed Terry but EVERYONE knows he was Tate's pick.

Lock up this habitually offending thug and throw away the key.

Anonymous said...

Before they can lock up anyone they have to release one that is already locked up. Can't stack them on top of each other. Might be a murderer that gets released and a drunk locked up.

All you pansy-pussies clamoring for justice need to admit your only basis is party politics. Light the grill tomorrow nite and fall in the flower bed.

Burton was at the Florida Georgia line concert that night.

There is no excuse for drinking and driving. I hear all this crap about drinking being a disease---it's a choice---a person makes a decision to drink and he deserves what ever comes his way. Politics is a dirty business filled with whores, drugs and alcohol and I bet there is not one congressman or senator that has not tried one if not all. The worse thing about all this is they cheat on the people that elected them---BURTON MUST GO !!!!!!

Charlie Meredith said...

Lost count of the posts that try to make the subject Tate Reeves. This has nothing to do with politics or Tate Reeves or Feel of even Billy McCoy. Would be good if we could get a list of all the legislators red and blue lighted, driving drunk, either leaving legislative sessions, departing Ticos or headed home at session's end. There would be hundreds on the list.

Before the day of roadside sobriety checkpoints, advanced radar systems and blow-tubes, it was almost expected that legislators would drive drunk and be released on their own recognizance. Whether driving home to Bolivar or Washington or Lee....it was commonplace. Still is.

Why do you think legislative car tags and window stickers identifying these official people were created?

Anonymous said...

The Ole Miss shirt is a nice touch, from the folks I've met who've attended that fine school, Burton's behavior is a more accurate representation than their adopted nickname "Harvard of the South." Ignorant hillbillies are ignorant hillbillies, no matter how many people voted for them...

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.
