Anyone shocked? Open thread so fire away.

I wonder if Ladd really believes the Chism polls she's promoted for the last month? Crisler isn't even mentioned in her endorsement beyond acknowledging him as an interviewee. I mean did Marshand, the person who is polling first or second in those polls, get any serious consideration? She'll have to mention his name when he makes the runoff! Donna Ladd is in for a big surprise.

Crisler YES said...

Thanks for this forum Kingfish. Ladd's reputation for banning and deleting comments is legend.

Kingfish said...

She was always endorsing Harvey. She thinks he was the best mayor ever.

HOwever, if you are a Horhn or Crisler supporter there IS hope.

Based on past history, there is a good chance she will backstab Harvey and withdraw her endorsement.

Now what the endorsement is actually worth is another topic.

Me thinks Jeff Good is going to be one unhappy progressive JFP advertiser.

Kingfish said...

Hadn't even thought of that. Ya think?

Thank GOD one paper has sense to realize who is talking truth and who is giving the voters fluff.
Crisler and Horhn are horrible candidates for Mayor. Maybe if you all ACTUALLY LISTENED to them speak or atteneded a forum you would realize they have nothing but the same to offer Jackson.

You are shocked? I twas always going to be Horhn or Harvey. Jeff Good supported Melton last time and still advertised in the Free Press. God, the tin foil over here must be the biggest ball in America. Do you get it at Kroger or from the trash? You guys need to come up for air once in while.

A better question than "anyone shocked" would be did anyone notice?

Thanks for Asking said...

I get my tinfoil from the Downtown Jackson Partners dumpster. Ben Allen burns through a ton of it. He gets the double thickness foil shipped to his office twice-weekly. His stash makes some fine hats.

So, let me get this straight. The Jackson Free Press endorses Harvey and says he's, "forgiven and learned begtter"...yet they start their endorsement on the same day Harvey is a DAY LATE in filing his campaign finance report- IN VIOLATION OF MISSISSIPPI LAW?!!!!! How is this any different than the 8 years of his previous service?

The good thing about an endorsement from the Fondren Bugle is it gives you a definitive list of people you don't ever, ever want to vote for.....

This is the same paper that endorsed ERIC FLEMING over Thad.

Well what really surprised me was Tom Stingley Ward 2.

Donna Ladd has been active in supporting victims of domestic violence

And Tom Stingley is well known in Ward 2 for the treatment of his first wife.

That shows you how much research and time they put into looking at candidates

That is ERIK. Pay attention.

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.

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.
