Equal Time

Well, I posted an online poster being circulated around the internet that has some fun at Angela McGlowan's expense. In the interest of equal time, I'm posting this email sent by one of her supporters defending his candidate. Enjoy.

"I have no problem with you are XXXXX. While you are not in the first District we are all still all from Mississippi and should do all we can for our state and Country. My comment was not so much to defend Angela as it was to say malicious tactics are being used against someone the GOP did not choose. At this current time I'm uncertain who I will vote for. I'm finding out along with all of you the things you are hearing about Angela. I knew long ago she had a bad interview on the Gallo show but did not hear the show until 2 days into her announcement week which began on Feb. 8th. Three years of interviews and she was always briefed on the topics and prepared for the show. Not this time Paul starts out the interview saying he has some business to attend to. Question? Was that business to set her up with a political trap question she was unprepared for? You decide, if so she took the bait. This is not to excuse her response. She was wrong in thought and attitude and the interview occurred August 8th. What many do not know is she tried to wing the interview on a topic she admittedly new nothing about.(GRANTED IF YOUR RUNNING FOR CONGRESS IN MS.YOU SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT GUNS) Yet, later that day she sent a statement to the Gallo show making sure he knew she was pro-gun and for the second amendment.(SOMETHING HE WOULD NOT ADMIT TO LAST WEEK ON HIS SHOW SAYING YOU SENT ME LOTS OF LETTERS. I don't see Y'all politics busting Paul out for not answering the question) About a week later she spent talking and even going shooting with some of my friends. We explained all about the registering of firearms and she got right on the subject in that same week after gaining a better understanding. Myself and others requested that audio or written transcript for months to no avail in order to advise on damage control since she was taking the proper stand on guns. Then kaboom it's available to the world 2 days into her campaign. In her last interview just the other day Vets and others who support her could not get through to talk on the Gallo show but those opposed to Angela got through. People contacted me about this and how Y'ALL Politics was blasting Angela and supporters were not being allowed to give give comments. This after Mr. Lange admitted donating to Alan Nunnelee. (by the way I like Alan and Henry and may vote for one of them) People who know her in 1st District know this and give her a pass on her limited knowledge on guns because she had many strengths in other areas. Think about it. 12 years on FOX NEWS ( THEY BEGGED HER TO STAY) the incredible conservative book Bamboozled AND HER FIGHTING ACORN , Czars, and the like appearing on Hannity NUMEROUS TIMES. So then her comes a 9 minute audio on her worst day and it should end her career and paint her to be a liberal. Ridiculous!
As far as the the $500 dollar donation goes I will no more try and defend this than her 9 minutes of being wrong. I did ask her about this last week when I first saw it. Her response was the same as when Paul Gallo asked her the other day in the interview. "She was a lobbyist at the time years ago when it occurred. She was encouraged by someone to give the donation" (as if were part of her job.) I can't see myself being encouraged to do such so like I said I'm not going to try and defend it but that is what happened.
I guess this is politics. What saddens me in addition to Angelas poor choices is the overwhelming attacks from some Conservative Forums and personalities that are obviously for Nunnelee (Sid Salter, Paul Gallo, Kim Wade, AFR, Y'all Politics,bloggers, social network supporters, many local republican clubs and politians and others) trying to annoint him as first district winner before and during the primaries. Unethical (in my opinion) when you have other formidable candidates. Now to support them is one thing but to attack one of the other candidates in an unfair manner. Then the post that Tea Party organizers being Bamboozled takes the cake and is an insult as well. Check the candidates out? Yes by all means, but what I and others have witnessed is causing much disapointment in the GOP and Nunnelee supporters. Especially when most do not live in the first district and the blogs are in many cases half truths. It will be difficult to convince me that someone didn't advise Alan to play nice while they did the dirty work. I expect more to come and will be watching as to observe the character of all involved. This should be an educational experience. LOL.
What is also almost laughable is most of these blogs have no name. It's like they are nameless faceless cowards and smear machines possibly paid to do just that. Then candidates supporters who are not the victims circulate this stuff that sometimes proves to be gossip/slander.
Sites like firenunnelee .com (see I don't like smear when its about any conservative) southofthenorthern , therealangela, these have no contact person because the purpose is to circulate negatives about your opponent. The problem is they have no accountability and when they report wrong who cares but the victim of the gossip/slander.
I think you will agree the people should choose the candidates of their district. Not a Tea Party, The GOP, democrats/ACORN, or in this case Jackson.
Have a good day and when you hear someone go negative please consider sources and motives.
My proposal to anyone who cares. Check out all candidates. Research candidates diligently and share FACTS good or bad. Then enthusiastically support the candidate of choice. If I don't like the other candidates, they don't get my vote. I'll save my strongest factual criticism for the Democrats.
Sorry about my long rant. Just giving my perspective. Those of us who are christian must live beyond this. I hope you don't mind I included others in this reply. Feel free to forward. I don't mind my name being on my statements.

God Bless you all,

Grant Sowell"

One word of advice for Mr. Sowell. If you are going to complain about the internet, it might help if you get an actual website. I just googled your candidate's name and no website appeared for her in the first two pages of results. Oh, there was her but it had literally nothing on it but her picture. I get an email from Nunnalee every day. I didn't ask for one but someone put me on a list. I get nothing from you guys. While you are complaining about bloggers attacking your candidate, why don't you fight back or at least show up for the fight online? Considering how many primary votes are probably computer-savvy, its probably something you should do.

Does it get any better than this?

Obama avoids getting a standard colonoscopy with the requisite optical device shoved up his ass because he received a virtual colonoscopy via CT. The procedure is safer but it isn't covered by Medicare.

He wants to fuck us in the ass but damn if he is going to bend over and take one for the team.

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.
