It's Foster v. Tate

State Representative Robert Foster qualified to run for Governor this morning at Mississippi Republican Party headquarters in Jackson. Looks like we got us a steel-cage, no rules, loser leave town match in August.  See for yourself below .

Reeves wins in a walk.

I think Foster pulls upset. Im undecided, but lean Foster.

He'll have to spend quite a bit of his war chest just to make sure that an upset doesn't occur. And he will have to expose his game plan for taking on Hood, although that may not be very enlightening. An I Love Trump and I'm the most conservative gameplan will not overcome all of his baggage.

At least he didn’t insult his family in his opening.

Agreed, Reeves will win. Interesting that Foster came out for Medicaid expansion..

This guy should've ran against Andy Griffith for Ag Commish, not Governor.

We've heard about farmers for the last two years. We now have one in Washington. Why the HELL do we need another farmer making important decisions that have nothing to do with sweet potatoes and Christmas trees.

@ 1:20...Not so fast Parks or Hipp. We know you two want him elected, but you’re the only two. I’d never vote for Kim Jong-Tater, the Supreme Leader of the Senate. He’s a little man dictator who needs to go back to being a teller in Florence. Tate needs to call Boss Hog in Yazoo. He’ll get you elected like he did Whit Hughes! Oh, wait a minute...never mind. Don’t wake Boss Hog!

I am with Tate but will consider another. Like most republicans, I am 51% with Tate.

Why I like Foster, he's not Tate, and he and Phil aren't buddies.

A.O.T. = Anyone Over Tate

but this guy does not look like Guv material at all. I've never even heard of him until now. That ain't good. Why not Dilbert, Gunn, Gipson, Ashby Foote, the dog catcher, anyone except Tate. He is so gross and pasty looking.

Tate would rather run for Gov. than run for 1/2 a mile on a treadmill. Sad!

The RNC will take care of the (R)ussian Bots, The JJ Sock Puppets will organize their tater cheering section for free some will be paid sock puppets though.

March 1is a long time away. Plenty of time for others to convince themselves they are the special one.

You are clueless.

Foster won't do any better than Mitch Tyner.

Foster is the only candidate that wil make the majority of House of Representatives align with Tate

Another lawyer looking for donations for billboards and mailers so he can enhance his lawyer business and name recognition. Can you say John Author Eaves, the second?

There will be others. And they will have a decent chance compared to this dude.

Robert Foster thinks those that disagree with him are evil. He will probably get some support among the Trumpians, but this kind of rhetoric is terrible for our country

It’s obvious that no one is a real Tate supporter... literally everyone I know who talks about politics says he’s toxic. But why won’t anyone worth a durn come out and run...

Dilbert, anyone? Billy Hewes? It’s like the scepter has already been passed. There is no excitement about Tate. And Jim Hood could win this one, even with his bumbling state of mind.

Robert Foster hasn't earned anything in this world except being born into a turn-key operation that he himself has tired of. He's affiliated with Oxford, so he has that, but the only reason he's running is likely because his wife probably suggested that he could run for office if he's "bored" with the farm....and she's already regretting the toll it will take on their family realizing that it's not all that cute/sexy.

I have voted Republican since 1977. If Robert or some other person does not beat Tate in the primary, Mississippi will have it's first Democrat govenor in a long time.

Please, PLEASE @7:49 come up with some new material.

Anonymous said...

Sorry perpetual poster -- you remind me of the MSM the way you keep repeating yourself about Tate insulting his family in his opening. He loves his family and they love him and you are beating a dead horse. I am still voting for and supporting Tate.

I was so hoping Delbert would have tossed his name in the hat for Governor and given Tater a run for his money in the Primary. Oh well, guess he is settling for Lt. Gov. according to the announcement today.

8:18 am When is the last time you or anyone else came up with new material?

I'm not 7:49 am but the comments on MS races and Jackson are rarely other than repetitive.

I get people hate Tater or Hood or they don't. They will attack any threats to either or they won't. People either like Jackson or they don't.

What we rarely get is any facts from other than KF or his guest columnist and then the Pete Repeats start up again with attacks to the messengers based on the biased opinions they've already made clear.

I've encouraged Delbert Hoseman to run for Governor for many years. I thought he was going to retire. Now he's running for Lt. Governor????? I'm a Conservative, but will not vote for Tate Reeves. He's never had a real job in his life outside of politics. He's wanted to be Governor since Haley Barbour's time. He's been "in-waiting" for this many years. I will sit this out, write in Delbert, or vote for Hood. What has The Pillsbury Dough Boy every done except live off the government largesse?

What's Tate done? Let's see...how about lower our taxes, reduce the size of our government, kill a bond bill to curb unnecessary spending, and pass other conservative legislation as Lieutenant Governor. He's easy to dislike if all your looking at is his personality or management style, but equally hard to dislike if you look at his results.

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.
