I'ts up to the Boss.

Attorney General Jim Hood said his decision on whether he will run for Governor in 2019 will rest upon his family's consent.  He made the remarks at a press conference yesterday at the Sillers Building.  Watch for yourself.

Would he move to Jackson if he won? Or does the governor's mansion move to whatever small town he's holed up in ostensibly running the AG's office?

Anyone but Tate.

Agreed @1:15. Tater Tot would be the worst. I have voted for GOP candidates my whole life, but I will not vote for Tater!

I would go for Pickering if I had to.

Please, please get rid of that mullet Jimmy. Mississippi has enough of a bad image problem without your Conway Twitty/Billy Ray Cyrus 1980s hairdo. If you want to lead our state into the future make this change. I'd rather see you in a faux hawk.

Shit, I'd go for Ronald McDonald if I had to.

How can he be worse than any other of the potential yahoos?

Tate would be a 100% better Governor than this liberal Democrat.

Mike Moore and Jim's other trial lawyer cronies would take too big of a pay cut.

Oklahoma State should hire him if Mike Gundy and his mullet leave.

How would a Justice Waller v. Jim Hood race play out? I get the "anyone but Tate" but is Tate the ONLY option for Republicans?

I see the Jim Hood Booster Club is active in the comment section today. If you honestly believe that the Mississippi electorate that elected Donald Trump and Phil Bryant overwhelmingly will vote for Jim Hood, a Democrat, over Tate Reeves, a Republican, you are delusional.

It amazes me how Hood is able to fenagle his way in to the hearts and minds of both Democrats and Republicans when he CLEARLY is beholden to Judge Green and her team and is all on board with this new "mental health mambo jumbo!"
Everyone in the Hinds County Criminal System knows that Green is pushing for mental health courts as an alternative to not having to send a lot of the local thugs away! And Hood is her guy! He's on her team!

4:25 - What makes you think Hood has finagled his way into the hearts and minds of anybody? All you see here is one poster typing away like a dunce, pretending to be different people, then clicking on enter. Chill out. Hood has zero chance at 26%.

5:54. Keep up. Hood is trouncing Reeves in the polls 60-40. I am a lifelong Republican and can't WAIT to vote for Hood. Tate has been a one man "party of no" and so disappointing. If he would think for himself and get away from sweet thing Rebekah Staples he might think more clearly. I am NOT suggesting ANYTHING improper but she clearly has his ear.

I don’t love Tate Reeves - in fact I kind of dislike him. But, if the choice is him or Jim Hood and his policies, then I will vote for Reeves without flinching. Of note, Reeves will do a lot less damage in the Governor’s Office than as Lt. Gov.

He looks like Roger Clinton did in the 90s. Someone get this man to Supercuts, or to Farm Aid.

If the choices are Bubba and Tater, I'll write in that truck driver who ran last time.

Mr. Hood will not get my vote because he has not investigated the missing $150 million dollars from the Singing River Health System Retirement Fund. The Health System is trying to sweep this under the rug and we need our Attorney General to open an investigation now. I am a lifetime Mississippi resident and believed that we were a good and honest state. If my retirement check is going to be lost then I and the other 3100 plan members deserve every rock to be turned over to help us live with the fact that we were robbed.

Bottom line, if the Donkeycrats had a bonafide poll from a reputable pollster not named Brad Chism and that poll showed our increasingly rotund AG with such a commanding lead it would have been leaked to the press already.

We need Mr. Hood to investigate SRHS pension plan scam. 3 thousand plus folks have had their dreams and lively hoods destroyed by corruption. Not failed economy. Most of these folks are seniors and live on a fixed income. We at least deserve the right to know what happen to our promised pension. Mr Hood we in Jackson County sir need answers.

If a registered republican votes for Hood, would other Republicans find out? Asking for a friend...

7:00. Tell your stupid friend you don't "register" for any party in Mississippi. Good Lord.

Halley Hampton said...

Jackson county resident here and if Mr Hood would like our votes we need him to investigate the SRHS crisis going on here. These people have been robbed of their retirement/ pensions that was not optional it was mandatory that they put their hard earned money into it! Now after many many years of loyalty to SRHS are left with no way to provide for themselves in their golden years but the rich and powerful at SRHS are still collecting a big fat check. This is so unfair and breaks my heart for these people. Something has to be done about this. My question to Mr Hood and anyone else in a position to investigate this is...How would you feel if upon retirement you find out someone has stolen your livelihood that u paid money into that u worked your entire career for??? Please help these people. I am not an employee or former employee just a concerned caring Jackson County Resident!

Attorney General Good, you must address the issue for the Singing River Hospital retirees plight. I totally understand this is a community hospital, but I also know there's 3,000 people whose retirement was STOLEN.

Anonymous said...

I, along with 3100 other Retirees or participants (not retired), need someone to investigate the theft, misuse of the MONEY in our retirement plan. We have worked long hours for many years paying into a MANDATORY retirement plan that was to give us a lifelong retirement check. That money was to help sustain us in our golden years. Many people will have no money to pay for the basic necessities like power bills, medications and medical care, house insurance. Many will even lose their homes. We have fought this battle in court for three years now and we need answers. But more than that, we need the money put back into the plan from the cronies that took it and they need to be brought to justice. There is a “settlement” on the table that pays very little back into the plan and let’s everyone that had a hand in this debacle off the hook. It is NOT a plan that will work. We have funds missing. We have MAIL FRAUD where documents were mailed stating that money had been put in our plan when it had NOT been. Please, please, PLEASE, Mr. Hood, open your eyes, open your heart, put your feet in OUR shoes. Be OUR HERO!! Step up to the plate!! Don’t turn a blind eye to us!! PLEASE HELP US!!
Thank you,
Cindy Almond, disabled retired from SINGING RIVER HOSPITAL.

Plenty of Republicans would cross the aisle to vote for Hood against Tate. Plenty of Republicans are tired of the Haley/Phil/Tater circle jerk of passing money and tax breaks amongst their friends, and doling out tax breaks to companies that don't uphold their job creation side of the agreement. Need a governor that isn't sitting on Haley's lap.

Why isn't the smartest guy on earth, Delbert Hosemann, going after Singing River with the same hard on he has for Watkins?

Tate Reeves is the most dissapointng statewide elected official ever. Tate went from a reasonable person to a bona fide redneck at light speed.

You can't be a Tea Party Republican and anti-Tate

He is the love child of the Heritage Foundation, they are the Tea Party Arm of the MSGOP

Now, if you have a change of heart, then great. Just wanted to let you know that Tate is on the Mississippi Tea Party gravy train.

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. 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.
