Morgan Dunn campaign signs were the best ones of the primary. Never got bored driving by those big signs.

55+% of the 3rd does not want Guest!

Saw alot of Guest signs in northeast Jackson... yet whit won it by a large number... both had big fundraisers there however I've learned you just can't speculate anymore with political races. I voted for Dunn.

78% does not want Hughes! What is your point.

Guest’s margin too big for Hughes to make up. Guest will be your nominee.

Anonymous said...

So who is going to be our new D.A.?

Anonymous said...

I don't want Guest after his "collection agency" sent me a notice that I needed to pay a traffic fine I had received 15 or so years earlier. I had and have no recollection of the ticket, but I can assure you, if I got it, I paid it. I called the Yazoo City or county department that was mentioned in this notice, and they told me " Oh they sent these to everybody. We don't know who paid them or not." I passed this on to HIGHER AUTHORITIES, but they chose to neglect it. P.S. I am still pissed off about it.

Dear arrogant Perry Parker and Hayes Dent, here’s your sign. Bug BYE!

Anonymous said...

@11:13 you should give Perry Parker some kudos. He came into this race with zero name recognition and held his own. Seems like he might have a political future if he wants it.

Anonymous said...

Like Harper, Guest will be another zero in Congress.

Anonymous said...

I am for Guest, but I have to say I am impressed with Perry Parker. No name recognition and he was a few thousand away from Lyin' Whit Hughes. Parker my have political future if he can get his name out there more.

Anonymous said...

That's a big margin. Looks like someone needs to buy ads on WJMI and Kixie saying that Michael Guest will reinstitute Jim Crow if elected. Time to get Democrats out for your boy, right Guv?

Anonymous said...

11:10 p.m. - Guest has nothing to do with Yazoo City or Yazoo County tickets

Anonymous said...

Michael Guest owns a collection agency? I thought he was the District Attorney? Surely he doesn’t allow these two entities, one private and one public, to overlap. That would be quite inappropriate. If he wins the Congressional seat, will the Michael Guest collection agency have a DC office? I ask these questions as a taxpayer!

Anonymous said...

Kingfish - no surprise that Madison County doesn't post results. Ever since the residents were foolish enough to elect a clerk from Hinds County Circuit Clerks office to run the Madison County, that office has spiraled downhill out of control. She ran off the competent employees and hired her friends/family. The local attorneys have no use for her, the judges have no use for her, and local law enforcement agencies have no use for her. But she will probably get re-elected because people don't pay attention if it doesn't affect them personally. But that office is now the new Hinds County Circuit Court office!

Pete Perry said...

Stog, maybe you need to get better carrier pigeon service. Over 70% of Hinds county results were in by 8 last night - don't know how (well, considering your propensity to fail to recognize reality, I guess I do know how) you can make such a comment.

I don't know about other counties as I was in the courthouse working, but I'm sure many of them were counted as well. You should probably realize that 'results' and 'media reporting' are not the same thing. As someone who claims to be part of the media elite, you should recognize the difference.

It was a tough night for women, college basketball players, and POLITICAL OUTSIDERS.

Given the choices we have left, it was also a tough night for the people of Mississippi.

Louis LeFleur said...

Prognostication? Pretty meaningless right now. I do believe, however, that KF should at least get some kudos for a clever title/headline!

County by county numbers from AP........

858, nice shot, but you do realize don't you that the Circuit Clerk is not responsible for, or performs, the duties that you claim were not done in Madison County. Party primaries are the party committees, and the reporting is done by the Election Commission, not the Circuit Clerk.

But, thanks for your diatribe against someone who it sounds like fired your butt.

Kingfish said...

Actually the Circuit Clerk has always posted and updated the election results as votes were counted through the night.

Anonymous said...

10:01 - never have worked for circuit clerk. never been fired. I just make it a point to know what is going on in my county!

Anonymous said...

10:01 sounds like you are one of the useless family members she hired!

Anonymous said...

Actually, maybe the old clerk did it. But it is not the responsibility of the Circuit Clerk. It is the responsibility of the election commission. Just like JJ may post the results, it is because you choose to do it. But it is not your responsibilities.

And technically, it is the responsibility of the parties to post the results. But because they use the county ELECTION COMMISSION'S system, they publically post them via the Commission.

Lyin' Whit Hughes will not get my vote this next time.

Anonymous said...

@11:19, what did Whit Hughes lie about? Did I miss something?

All I heard him say was that he played basketball for MSU in the 90s. Kind of dopey as a reason to support him, but it's true.

Congressional Collection Agency said...

So it's pretty much set that Michael Guest will be the next Congressman from central MS.

The question now is will he issue a federal subpoena upon a woman in a Hinds County trailer park to make her pay that $23 she owes on a Boost Mobile bill from 2016?

Anonymous said...

The Guest haters are out in full force today. Sore losers is what it seems like. People are jealous he is making money out of an idea he founded out of seeing a need being in public office. You cant tell me that you wouldn't do the same if you thought of it. Must work so good because other local courts use them for collections as well. Some people remind me of the people on neighborhood and community Facebook groups. They bitch and moan and complain and make up stuff to discredit anyone who they don't 100% agree with. #petty

Anonymous said...

at 8:58 AM - You the ex-clerk, one of the fired employees or one of the aforementioned children??

I've nothing for the current circuit clerk either. She's helpless as well as her sister-in-law that she brought with her when she was elected. If it weren't for the staff that the prior clerk had in place and that Mrs. Wray hasn't terminated, that office would crumble.

She wont get re-elected if she runs again.

Anonymous said...

Hello 10:58. 8:58 here. I never said it was Circuit Clerks RESPONSIBILITY to post results. But Circuit Clerk has always posted election results on the County's website. My point - after Kingfish pointed out the Madison County website was no longer posting results on election night - was that the Circuit Clerk (you?) has been a huge failure to the taxpayers of Madison County. The office, once one of the best run in the county, is now a joke! A Hinds county employee was elected to the office and has hired all her (your?) family and doesn't have a clue about what needs to be done. Everything is behind schedule, errors are made on a regular basis, and we the tax paying citizens will pay the price the longer she stays in office!
But to your point - no, she is not "obligated" to post results. that is just something that the citizens were once fortunate enough to have access to when we had a Circuit Clerk that cared about all of us!

Anonymous said...

At 2:23 - no, I'm just a citizen that keeps up with our elected offices. And I hope you are correct in that she won't get re-elected!!!

Anonymous said...

Guest political machine is vast. Even if he had not garnered a single vote from Rankin County, he still would be in the lead. Hughes biggest problem from the beginning was that he was never going to win his home county of Madison. Even though it wouldn’t have made that much of a difference, there was no reason to attempt a run without being able to do so. Hughes never was active in his community, especially the political one. Guest was elected in both Rankin and Madison and his name ID swamped his opponents.

Anonymous said...

That Lee Westbrook was a class act...can we bait her out of retirement? She went above and beyond in her role as Madison CC. The Election Commissioners are great too and help the parties and local municipalities out a lot when they don't run elections as often as the ECs.

Poor David Baria has gotten beat by a guy he refers to as Hollywood Sherman that has only lived in Mississippi about a week. Seems like for Sherman a guy that just ran for office for the first time, he Led the ticket, Beat the democratic leader of the House of Representatives, he won 41 counties. Pretty good start for a first time candidate. He does all of this before ever talking about Baria’s horrible voting record & getting paid for being in the Capitol while being other places & getting paid from the taxpayers. Even the democrats know that Baria sucks & cant win in November against Wicker. Poor David someone by that baby a pacifier.

Anonymous said...

It is NOT "pretty much set" that Mr. Guest will be the next Congressman from central Mississippi. Hinds, Copiah, Warren, Claiborne Counties have Congressman Thompson representing them.

There is also Rep. Evans in the race in November that this Mr. Guest must defeat.

It is just as amazing that Mr. Sherman defeated Rep. Scott as it is that he defeated Rep. Baria.

If you don’t have the facts then you shouldn’t run your mouth! The circuit clerk did not runoff the original employees. Lee Westbrook’s staff is still employed!

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.
