Burton Resigns Leadership Position

State Senator Terry Burton (R-JD Stiller) resigned his position of Pro-Tem of the Senate.  The Senate has not yet chosen a successor.  He also said he will not seek re-election

One thing we know, his replacement won't be a braying stupid-ass Donkeycrat nor someone not supportive of Reeves. Congrats on your inconsequential scalp!

wow, how unfortunate given that this was all a huge misunderstanding.

Did you purposely publish this after JT went off the air? You know he would have read the article/comments verbatim on the radio.

Picky people pick John Polk! Invertebrate for Pro Tem!

The latest I heard was that he might take over the leadership role in the Mississippi Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Liquor distribution. They have room for him to sleep there so he will not have to drive.

Burton has completely failed at whatever he was supposed to be doing, or to put it on a level Burton would understand....he has achieved a .14 on the "do good" meter.

With leadership like this, NO wonder Mississippi is LAST in everything.

Head over to Ticos tonight and witness some of Burton's colleagues in action.

If this happened to me, I’m not sure if I would ever want to drink again or I might fall deeper into the abyss of whiskey river. I’m torn

Hello Snowden?!?! You there? Your turn.

He needs to resign completely and check himself into rehab, before it's too late. It would be so refreshing if he admitted publicly that he has a problem and needs help.

If it turns out that he is acquitted or that the prosecution declines to prosecute, what will you people say then? You people have convicted Burton on an allegation. You are the same people who squealed foul when the Democrats wanted to convict Kavanaugh of the allegations against him because the allegations were made. You people need to learn something about what the presumption of innocence means, because you are no better than Democrats. Like freedom of expression, the presumption of innocence doesn't mean a thing unless you apply it to the people you don't like. It would not surprise me if Burton is acquitted, from what I have read of the facts. In that sense, his resignation was premature. You could at least give the man credit for putting the interests of the senate above his own. You could at least give the man credit for not possibly causing political drama in the senate by not resigning, which could have resulted in a very public remonstrance to Tate Reeves had the senate refused to unseat Burton as pro tem.

A great many of the trolls here ARE Democrats.

"Innocent until proven guilty" simply means that the burden of proof is on the prosecutor.

If it walks like a drunk, talks like a drunk, and looks like a drunk...

10:54, like you I believe in the presumption of innocence, but the fact that Senator Burton resigned his leadership post and is not running for reelection tells me that there's a chance he's guilt, never mind that in his resignation speech he admitted to personal issues that need to be addressed.

BUT, He is still going to work this session (translation, draw a check, benefits, perks from lobbyists, etc). This is NO sign of contrition. Just get him out of there and be done with him. As they say in the Mayberry barber shop, (a pretty good comparison) NEXT!!!

Terry obviously has a serious problem and I hope he deals with it.

However, I'm wondering...at this stage in his illness, how many times has he shown up for work during session, inebriated and virtually unable to function? Did none of his desk mates, friends or those in conference with him smell it or suspect he was drunk on the job? If not, that's amazing.

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.
