Kenneth Stokes will win by a landslide.We need someone like him to make Jackson great again.

Antar wins mayor. I still contend that the people of Jackson will vote for him to "get back" at Trump voters.

Antar wins, then the city is done. He'll make Tony Yarber look like Allen C. Thompson.

Sad group of people.

Monroe will win if he gives out donuts for people vote. At ever rally he should give out donuts. Slogan: I can make Jackson as good as my donuts.

659-jacktown has been done for years. It's like the titanic. It's hit the iceberg and the band is playing. I loathe having to go there for anything.

I'm voting Corinthian Sanders. Only a Libertarian can fix this mess.

I'm disappointed but not surprised that Priester decided against running for Mayor. He would have had my vote.

Isn't one of these mayoral candidates listing a Ridgeland physical address?

It's now time to get drunk and show up at council meetings and heckle.

Between the bunch (excluding Melvin) they couldn't write a paragraph in English.

It's not just's done.

So at least now we can go down and have some fun asking questions knowing full well the response will be illogical, unworkable, and totally ignorant.

Maybe we can sell the series to Netflix

Kenny Stokes appeal to his ghetto constituents!

Is no different from Bubba Barbour and Feel Buy'ant to the Rankin "Trailer Trash" Rednecks!

Mississippi Fried Politics at its finest, leave'em ignorant and appeal to their ignorance!

I know some of you think The CL's Anna Wolfe is "hot" (I've never seen her) but once again, the "editor(s)" have allowed an opinion piece on their front page!
i. e. "mostly long-shot candidates", "the race belongs to one of three" - citing unnamed "local politicos", "the runoff is the election to watch"...
Not that I disagree with her OPINION, but save the front page for unbiased news reporting, if such a thing still exists. There is a reason there is an editorial page!

Man, if all the other non-Stokes Ward 3 candidates got together & did rock-paper-scissors (2 brackets, double elimination); and consolidated the anti-Stokes vote...

Stokes would still win by a landslide.

Because his constituents are all brilliant. Geniuses, the lot of 'em.

Can one of you Jackson politicos tell me why Antar will be a disaster? I am hopeful that he will be surprisingly wanting to work with all parties.

I am probably just naive.

10:12 Antar is not his father. His father's friends will tell you that Jr. is immature, has quite the ego and no patience.

In all seriousness, Chokwe really cared about the people of Jackson, he did the leg work and the community service. When he was out there, Antar was no where to be found. He's a privileged young man.

He wants Benny Thompson's congressional seat and the only way to get to it, is via a lower level public office.

Voted for Yarber last election, but he has too many outside distractions. Robert Graham is the only remaining candidate I can take seriously, that has actual public office experience.

1] Has no experience at anything beyond operating a small law office

2] His supporters openly blame whites for his loss to Yarber

3] Remains attached at the hip to his father's anti-white Kushniks and Detroit rejects

4] He's already running a campaign steeped in racial animus in black Jackson

5] The ONLY reason he is even in this discussion is because of his father

Without the last name he'd struggle to get elected to the City Council. Jackson needs leadership not a coronation nor a personality cult.

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!!!
