Stamps handicaps the race.

City Councilman De'Keither Stamps discusses the race in this video.  Last three minutes or so were pretty good.

I am sure these people mean well but geez...why not zip the lips if you don't have anything meaningful to say.

Poor Stamps is feeling left out.

he looks constipated

Looking constipated is a council member job requirement.

He stated Phil Bryant won Jackson. Is that true? DuPree won Hinds County.
Bryant: 24092 34.45%
DuPree: 45851 65.55% 69943

On The A.M. Dial said...

Meanwhile, today on 1120 a.m., the one and only Ben Allen returns to stutter up the airwaves. He talks about downtown development and a bar proposed to open a year from now. He also made a statement that I found hard to believe he actually said, "I am amazed at the number of fine restaurants we have".

He's still trumpeting Humpty Dumpty's horn. I guess he and Kingfish slobber over the same microphone on back to back days.

Yeah, when I heard that 6:27 PM I realized he was just winging it. He said that Bryant beat Dupree inside Jackson. That simply did not happen.

He seems reasonable in the video but it is hard reconcile that person and the Councilman who was clueless when it came to the unforeseen problems on Fortification.

As a poster above sort of alludes, can't help but wonder if he thinks, in hindsight, that he should have run for Mayor if, for nothing else, the visibility and limelight.

Ummm. 6:29. It is 1180 and duh. Jackson does have an unusually large number of great restaurants, especially for a town it's size. Your point?

6:29 what day are you on?

7:12 is right about the number of great restaurants for a town this size.

1120 AM is the station run by the blind man who makes enough playing syndicated religious programming each morning that it allows him to play bluegrass every afternoon until they go off the air at sundown, when a St. Louis station at the same frequency starts coming in down here.

LOL, no one refutes that Ben Allen stutters up the airwaves.

7:47 what station asked you to be on. What time and where?

7:47. Waiting waiting waiting.

Go first 8:00 PM. Where can we find you?

WJNT Producer said...

7:47 Ben's show is great. I have listened to both. Next week is a program an the "Lakes Project". Why don't you call Ben at 353 9800 and ask him if you can join him?? He is a nice guy, in case you refuse to notice, and I am sure he would love to have you join him.

WJNT Producer must be a wee bit wet behind the ears.

Did you call him 9:38? Or did you just get your personal rush behind you?

I Miss School-Day Picture Day said...

Whoaaa. The Ben Allen chorus chimes in. Sorry for the 1120-1180 mistake, although wholly irrelevant to the conversation. No, Kingfish, I am not on the radio. Just what we need in Thuh-Mettro ~ another irrelevant talk show host.

Anyway, why the hell would any sane person call Ben's show and ask to be put on the air with this nutcase with the potential for his relatives, friends, business associates recognizing his voice?

I like Mr. Stamps. I has a very practical grasp on politics. The fact that he did not get into this special election allows him to have the eagle's eye perspective he demonstrates on city affairs. His political and rhetorical talents will be sought by the next mayor.

Where's that list of Jackson's 'many fine restaurants'? Don't count the Whatta Burger by Shoneys on High Street. I know bout that one.

Anonymous said...

Don't forget the Waffle House snuggled between the burgers and Shoneys. Lot of fine vittles on that little acre.

Where's The Damned List? said...

And the Kangaroo (not to be confused with the Cap'n) across the street has hot dogs. Homer's BBQ left, so we can't count that one. Homer blamed it on High Street demolition and orange cones.

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.
