I did not know that Mr. Friedeman was still alive. He dropped off the radar long ago.

got foot in the mouth disease? Matt has had it for years. His radio show he used to do on Supertalk would make JT look like Einstein. My favorite Matt comment was when he said that the gymnast's in the Olympics needed to wear more clothes!

Is Freidman special needs?

Kind of makes you wonder if there aren't any health care facilities near DC. An absentee spouse is absentee no matter what her state of health is, amiright?

It is all tied up 6:19 in the same warped mentality as the male need for trophy wives.

@6:19 Obviously, you have never had to deal with a family member with dementia. Perhaps this lady is in Mississippi because 1.) St. Catherine's is an excellent facility. 2.) Mississippi is her home and where her family is.

@6:57. 6:19 here. No, I don't deal with a family member with dementia, but I do deal with a relative with advanced als. So I've got that going for me.

And I don't dispute that SC offers great care, but one can only wonder how often he gets to see her whilst serving as senator in DC. If it were me, I would prefer my spouse to be near know, so if there's an emergency, I could be there in a hurry as opposed to the next charter air flight paid for by a lobbyist

7:15. Give it up. He is going to win and your little redneck Jones County hyperventalators are going to have to get over the obvious. CM is a creep.

@6:19 I was speaking in general about a family dealing with a tough situation. You are only grinding an ax about Sen. Cochran. - 6:57

@7:39. 6:57. I am simply asking what kind of husband could leave his wife alone 1,000 miles away. V

8:29 pm I'm sorry your spouse has ALS. It's a terrible disease, but your spouse recognizes you and is glad for your presence.
You aren't a stranger or a threat.
Your presence isn't upsetting.

You obviously have no experience with dementia. But, I would think you would be slow, given your challenge to sit in judgment as I'm sure others haven't always understood what burdens you face.

The lack of compassion on the part of McDaniel supporters is astounding. And, one would hope Christians , especially, would think first " There but for the grace of God go I "

His wife doesn't even know who he is. Why would he move her around? Leaving her in an excellent facility for care, and not divorcing her to keep her medical insurance in place, is what any husband would do. There are many stories of spouses who "give up" their husband/wife to others who can deal with all the horrible issues that come about from dementia. The tantrums, anger, rage, not recognizing anyone, etc. It is a horrible disease and no one should be shamed for letting a family member stay in a facility providing excellent care, while continuing to live their own life.

6:19 - For your information, Thad and Rose have 2 children - a son that lives in Jackson and a daughter that lives in Hattiesburg. Thad's brother and sister-in-law live in Raymond. All are able to visit Rose whenever they can - the daughter is under two hours away and the others are only 30 minutes away. Thad has represented the State of Mississippi in the US Senate with honor and dignity, but 1,000 miles away. He visits Rose as often as he can. WAPT needs to let Friedeman go his merry way!

If Cochran is not divorcing her out of the goodness of his heart, or if he loves her, why not quit the job to be closer to her?

/it's all I am asking.

//notices that the Cochran defenders make a lot of assumptions about me being a mcdaniels

///FYI. I don't give money to republicans and I don't vote for democrats....I usually write in the name of a candidate in lieu of voting for any incumbent.

////Donald Duck is my candidate of choice because of his temperament.

////thinks Cochran should have retired years ago fwiw....especially after finding out that she has been interned for 14 years.

Matt is an embarrassment to republicans and Christians alike

Another Theory Here said...

I doubt he's not divorced her 'to keep her medical insurance in place'. Before this incident, not one person in a thousand even knew of this and the other 999 thought his wife was either at home somewhere or with him in D.C.

Accordingly, he has left her quietly at St. C. in order to insulate himself from public and voter ridicule were he to divorce her. He knows she can't throw a tantrum regarding the social butterfly in his office for the past 19 years.

He's not even a native Mississippian. What does he know about us?

So, Matt has lost his standing as the golden boy of the Christian Right and " real" conservatives in MS?

Some of you are surprised that he got more rabid over time?

When will people realize that those who are fanatics are not stable and will get worse as they age?

Matt lost his standing many years ago and the only political gig he maintained was with WAPT16. Hopefully people remember why they stopped paying attention to him over the years and 16 drops him like the dumb rock he is.

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.

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.
