Election Day Thread

The big, huge Senate runoff today.  However, there are several more races.  There are runoffs in Hinds County for Chancery Court and Circuit Court.  There is a runoff for Circuit Judge in Madison and Rankin counties as well as one for Chancellor in Rankin County as well.  Vote early and often.  Make comments about election in this post.  Fire away.

I hope no one that has been indicted or the son of no one that has been indicted will win today.

I can't wait until it's over!!! If I have to watch one more CHS or Espy campaign ad on TV, I'm going to lose my mind!

Took an unscheduled jaunt down past Westland Plaza/Provine area, should have seen the bums they've given liquor to to canvass.

55-45 CHS. Black turnout is up and Espy peels off some of the white vote but not nearly enough to win.

Why in hell would Phil Bryant and others be saying "This is the most important election of our lifetime"? That's nothing but nuts. Well, it could be important for Phil since he does nothing without an ulterior, personal motive.

@ 2:09, you are a brave sole going on that little jaunt in that part of town. It's heard to believe that Westland Plaza used to be a nice place to shop and take your family.

Who cares if 'the son of someone who has been indicted' is elected? Please comment on the logic behind that 'hope'.

Espy might clean up better than Smith. What matters is how you vote in the senate. If you compare Esby to B Thompson he looks ok, but don’t you think they will vote the same way at least 95% of the time? Has Bennie EVER cast a vote that you agree with about something that mattered? Has Chuckey Schumer or Pelosi? When it comes to national policy they are morons. No other way to say it

Espy says he 'will work across the aisle'. Bullshit. Who, in the past six to ten years has done that and how long would he last if he did? Anybody who says that (who does not run as an independent) is a liar, straight up.

Where have you been Rumpelstiltskin? It 'vanished' from most places 3 to 6 years ago. Actually, you people forgot why you thought someone told you that you ought to be offended by it.

@ 2:51 PM Phil Bryant got us the Lottery. Now, I don't have to drive to Louisiana to get my tickets.

Hopefully Dan Jones will realize that he’s not circuit judge material in two different circuits now and will stop campaigning. Gotta be expensive to move just to qualify.. and lose... again

This election will prove one of two things

1st - Mississippi has moved on from Jim Crow and the Citizens Council

2nd - Mississippi sticks with electing bigots to statewide positions

Which one will it be?

You is smart, you is kind, you is important. Real talk!

Cindy Lou - 51.3%
Mike Mike - 48.7%

Should Cindy Lou have said, "If he invited me to an abortion, I would be on the front row"? Asking for a friend.

David McCarty will win.

@3:03, oddly enough Westland Plaza itself was I pretty good shape, as was Camelot apartments, haven't been down there in easily 25 years, the surrounding area however looked like Ramadi.

No Mississippi flag? First smart decision she's made.

Please stop with the 'asking for a friend' crap. Clearly you don't understand the schtick nor how it's supposed to be used to be considered funny.

Why is Madison County so slow to post results?

Anonymous said...

Its 7:59 and we are still the stupidest, fattest and poorest state in the country.

Anything less than a 55%-45% win for CHS is a loss for Bryant's legacy. Hopefully if any more vacancies come up, he just leaves them vacant.

Anonymous said...

The most caustic and vile GOP presidential candidate in history got 58% of Mississippi, and he was a New York yankee. So how much will the hometown Mississippi girl get?

What 7:11 said. WHERE THE HELL ARE THE MOST UP-TO-DATE RESULTS?????????

Anonymous said...

The out-of-state idiots on Twitter (#MSSEN) are hilarious. One numbskull thinks Espy could carry Madison County. Only thing funnier would be if Donner fleeced 'em all for a VIP Club DonnerKay ($$$) kick.

Forceps and Stirrups said...

Break.One.Nine. Let's get a little perspective here: Cindy is set up at The Hilton, right? Is Espy down at the abortion clinic on North State?

coffee and cornbread said...

8:41pm and still no results posted on the Madison County webpage.

Anonymous said...

Is it a bit concerning that 90% of the Hinds County precincts have not reported at 8:40?

"Runoff - CHS 56%, Espy 44%

Gee, I'm a genius!

Seriously. What is the point if you only going to clear comments every 90-120 minutes?

This election will prove two things:

1. Most Mississippians are not stupid enough to elect a crook.

2. Some Mississippians choose race over ethics.

Madison County is actually scanning their voting results to create a pdf and then posting that to the web. Holy antiquation! What is this, 1960?

9:26 Every county in the state does that

I remember back in 1960 when Adobe Acrobat was state-of-the-art.

Anonymous said...

1960. When Ross Barnett was rolling through Mississippi, JFK was elected president, gasoline was a quarter a gallon, and county election boards were putting vote tallies on the internet as scanned PDFs.

Anonymous said...

@12:05 - Perhaps I need to rephrase. What Madison did was PRINT the results out (notice the scratch from the drum of the printer) and then SCAN the printed results and create a pdf to post to the web. Not every county does that. No wonder their results take so long to post. So-called flagship county. A simple DOS bat file would have automated that.

Anonymous said...

Scanning a single page into a PDF file takes easily 8-10 hours. Arduous task.

Anonymous said...

The counties can only put the elections results on the web as they get it processed. The precincts have to close, paper work completed, memory cards from scanners or voting machines accounted for and placed in sealed containers. THEN all that has to be transported to the circuit court house, checked in, seals on bags/boxes checked, it is then handed off to another group that open the bags/boxes, paperwork rechecked and then memory cards are processed for tabulation.....THEN, reports are run and depending on which voting system a county has THEN the results are posted to their web site IF they have one. It is not an instantaneous process. Crazy things happen that are too many to list happen and hold the process up from reporting results......I'd LOVE to see the system that was running Adobe back in 1960.....ya think it might have been the size of a house?

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.
