Vote for Top 50

Y'all Politics & Supertalk Mississippi (WFMN) teamed up create the Top 50 Award.  No longer will the beautiful people just tell each other they are beautiful, now you get to nominate them as well. ;-)   Y'all Politics announced the contest today:


The Mississippi Top 50 Award is being created to recognize those that help, by virtue of their position and talent, move the conversation in Mississippi forward. Mississippi is graced with tremendous talent in government, the political sphere, business, media and culture.

This is an annual list of the people judged to be the most influential leaders in the state. This bipartisan selection of leaders comes from the ranks of local, state and federal elected and appointed officials; political leaders; government affairs professionals; public policy advocates; economic development professionals; business leaders; media professionals and other leaders. Nominations are open through September 2.

The categories are:

• Elected/Appointed Government Officials
• Lobbying/Government Relations
• Business, Culture and Media


The awards are sponsored by Y’all Politics, Mississippi’s leading political website and SuperTalk Mississippi, Mississippi’s leading statewide radio network. Awardees are nominated through an open process. There is no cost to nominate, be nominated or to receive an award. However, one must be nominated to be considered. Nominees will be notified of their nomination immediately, and awardees will be notified of their selection in late 2016. Awardees will be announced via the MSTop50.com website starting in early October....

Hmmm.... who should we nominate? So many choices, so few spots.  I may create my own list today.

Y'all Politics, "Mississippi's leading political website."

Gee, Frank, think a lot of yourself, huh?

It's actually a perfect pairing. The two entities MOST in the tank for senile, drooling Thad Cochran two years ago form a mutual admiration society and sponsor a popularity contest.

Paul Gallo and Frank Corder are maybe the two least intellectually stimulating, self-appointed "conversation movers" in the state. Neither ever has an original thought, and Frank is just a mouthpiece for whatever person or position is popular among GOP circles on any given day.

What a joke.

Prediction on award winners from Frank Corder and Supertalk:

• Elected/Appointed Government Officials: Tate Reeves and Phil Bryant

• Lobbying/Government Relations: Haley Barbour and Chip Pickering

• Business, Culture and Media: Steve Davenport, CEO TeleSouth Communications, & Frank Corder owner of coffee shop and aggregator of other people's content.

Book it now.

This description disqualifies most government officials and media entities in the state, it seems.

Never picked for class favorite? Still hopelessly insecure despite your moderately high profile job in the 50th greatest state in America?

No problem!

Y'all Politics and Supertalk present the 1st Annual Great Mississippi Circle Jerk: Nominate yourse ... err, I mean a colleague ... today!

Let's nominate the one person who is dominating the conversation with law enforcement in Mississippi, Joel Bomgar. Joel is now the most despised elected official by law enforcement probably in Mississippi history. From being the only republican this year voting to make dope legal, not voting to place a fine on child sex offenders and now wanting to take away law enforecements ability to confiscate drug dealers property, Joel has in just 6 months become the most hated elected official to them. Congratulations Madison County!!!

Can we unironically nominate Will Longwitz?

Y'all can all quit wasting your time on names to nominate. Assuming that Lange and Davenport will be the judges of their scheme, its clear who will win.

Gilbert! Our SOS. He will win all categories, because we all know (or at least he believes) he deserves them all and with Lange and Davenport's noses so far up his behind, he is a shoe in.

Use to listen to Gallo. However, he has become a megaphone for Feel. Nothing but a promoter for him and Barbour. Not about ideology, just them, whatever their agenda.

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!!!
