Be prepared for 2-3 new apartment complexes to break ground the first 90 days after Crosby gets elected. Mary's a PITA, but she is largely why Madison is one of the most desirable addresses in the state. I'll be voting for her.

JBC is dreaming.

JBC is nuts. Rudy probably trying to be the city engineer. Howland is terrible.

JBC is nuts Mary is going to wipe the floor with his ass. Mary will be mayor till she decides not to be and I dont think Mary is ever going to retire.

I'm a resident of Rankin County and wish Mary was over here. I do not like anything about the B---- but she has done a great job keeping her city appealing to retail and commercial users which brings in the roof tops.

JACKSON SHOULD BE SO LUCKY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mayor Mary is insane....I think politicians have to be so paranoid just because...well sites like this I suppose.

But...insanity aside...she has formed a neat little city and she has kept the poor people out so property values are higher....she wins unless they find her in bed with a dead girl and a live boy.....yes...I realize that's not the correct quote

Anonymous said...

This isn't about winning. JBC doesn't have a chance in hell to win. This is about Rudy having the opportunity to drag Mayor Mary through the mud and play dirty. Can't wait to see the campaign mailers for this election. It's going to get ugly.

There she goes again.....!!!!!!!!!!!

Get the popcorn ready....lol at the idiot wanting to take on the gauntlet. I reckon he has some new dirt?

I think Armstrong is running for mayor.

All John Bell has to do is start grabbing women by the ****y and calling Mary a "lying weakling" and the race is won....hell the President did it why can't he.

Early and Often.. said...

How badly did Crosby get beat last time he ran for mayor? Something like an 86% ass whoopin'?

Rudy better start saving his money instead of blowing it on these ridiculous political runs. Nobody within seven states will hire his ass already. Word on the skreet is he wanted the plumbing contract at 51 Kroger and Crosby couldn't even deliver that.

Who the fark is John Howland?

Crosby should attempt to get on at McDades or maybe Rameys.

9:15 WRONG! I live in a very nice camper in Flora. And, I have internet.

JBC has this in the bag! Madison is tired of Mary! She is like an ugly ex that won't leave you alone. Mary had a nice one night stand now it is time for the real men to take charge!

Anonymous said...

Madison is overbuilt. Madison layout is hard to get around with the interstate cutting it in half. House prices are over inflated. I like living in Brandon. Mary has done a wonderful job making the city look good. She'll get reelected.

Anonymous said...

On a positive note, those of us who stopped shopping at Kroger, last time BAG BOY ran for office, have discovered that WalMart is a great place to buy groceries, once you learn the ins-and-outs.

Sounds like a 9th grader trying to learn to write a paragraph. As an instructor I would give him/her a D for being a warm body.

Anonymous said...

I'll give Crosby credit . . . he's damn good at making sure a "Kroger SWAT Team" can clean up a broken jar of pickles on aisle # 3 within thirty minutes.

On the the other hand . . . Mary has been damn good about keeping unauthorized fake peacocks off the roofs of some her peasant's homes.

This race is going to be too fun !

JBC should look at Facebook more. Mary announced this week and got 1400 likes.

"Appeal to authority" @ 10:09. Your fallacy earns you an 'F'. As an instructor, you should know to place a comma after the word instructor.

10:04. Reread what you wrote: I used to shop at Kroger and now I shop at Wally World.

lulz at the hate. Let it flow

Will we see any coverage on Pearl mayoral race?

Even Mayor Mary's worst enemy could not consider her phenomenal tenure as a "one night stand". Probably the most sexist comment ever posted here.

Who is Matt Armstrong?

Anonymous said...

Matt Armstrong is Trent Lott's former son-in-law.

@12:30 --

well now that is interestingggggg

Basic Research Reveals.. said...

I too wondered who Matt K. Armstrong is, never having heard of him.

A simple internet Google search reveals that he has lived in Madison, Brandon and Tuscaloosa. Also reveals he owns Germantown Wine and Spirits. He either IS or has been a partner at Mississippi Legislative and Consulting Group LLC, IS or WAS principal @Liaison Group LLC and IS or WAS married to Tyler Lott Armstrong. She was with Mississippi Department of Economic Development and is now Chief Operating Officer of Matro Jackson Chamber of Commerce.

The Google search also reveals that Matt Keith Armstrong is owner of Power Sports Plus and Deep South Hunting Ranch.

All of that indicates that he has what appears to be at least a resume of running with important folks. The question I have is whether he bumped into the Lott family as a result of his high-brow political dealings or did his political meanderings result from his being around his former father in law who pointed him in the direction of hob-knobbing and shoulder-rubbing?

So, we have the current Mayor of Madison whose resume, mental status, accomplishments, war record and list of enemies are all well known, and we have a former grocery manager and we have a liquor store owner with political connections who was once related to Trent Lott, the brother-in-law of Dickie Scruggs.

The incumbent wants to continue sitting on the throne she built to herself, one challenger has been voted out of office and simply needs a job and the motive of the third is anybody's guess.

Where the hell is John Grisham when we need him?

Anonymous said...



John Grisham won't touch this... it's to close to a few well known names.

Does John Bell even have a job these days? Where has he been?

Anonymous said...

The real question where the hell is Micah. He always post about Madison.

Tracking JBC.. said...

John Bell has no job. He still frequents Kroger and looks like a male bag-lady with his flop hat and beard.

I believe I heard that he's still living off the largess Rudy contributed to his last two runs for Supervisor and the one for mayor. Word is he's also looking for a place to park his RV. He was shopping prices at the storage places in the area three weeks ago.

Must have a good financial planner.

Anonymous said...

@4:07

LOL

assumption -- Rudy has it all planned out.

Anonymous said...

When JBC becomes mayor, will the city insurance plan be handled out of Starkville with Elvis getting a commission?

Stay tooned....

Anonymous said...

who else is running for alderman? it's definitely time for a change in ward 6.

Anonymous said...

I don't mind having a candidate other than Hickok. He doesn't represent people in his ward. He represents the Mayor of Madison. Has he ever, EVER voted contrary to the wishes of the mayor? I doubt it.

Anonymous said...

It would be nice to see if one of these candidates may demonstrate that they could actually govern Madison someday. I would vote for them next time. We have been more than happy and more than successful for well over 30 years with our Mayor. We should keep her as long as we can and take one of these others up next time if they are worthy and willing then. For now...Mary for Mayor...again. Thanks, Mary, for all you have done for our City, our County, our State.

I've known Matt Armstrong for quite a while. He is a successful entrepreneur (developed several businesses before his marriage to Lott's daughter) but has also been exposed to politics through his ex father in law as you stated. He is also a proud military veteran and served during Desert Storm.
One of his platforms will aim to keep more revenue in Madison county as opposed to the "corporate chain" system that dominates the county now. All of that revenue leaves the state.

Interestingly, Mary had said she wasn't running again and submitted her name 10 minutes before the deadline. That tells me she doesn't have much interest in the actual work involved but isn't quite sure what else to do.

Also, I believe that John Bell has withdrawn from the race but that may just be a rumor.

Anonymous said...

Wow for someone who doesn't have much interest in the work involved Mary sure works a lot. As for your comment on Madison County. The mayor of Madison the City would be well advised to stay away from the snake pit in Canton.

Funny thing politics! As long as you benefit from the system your all for it. When you're on the outside you seek to tear down. Mr. Armstrong should move back to Rankin County where he has a better grasp of politics. He's outclassed over here.

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.
