Cory's out.

Cory Wilson decides not to run in the June special election for  Madison County Chancery Clerk.  He sent the following statement to Jackson Jambalaya:

"I have decided not to run in the special election for Madison County Chancery Clerk.  It has been a very tough decision.  The office is an important position for Madison County, and one that in many ways fits my background and experience.  But after counsel from good friends, a lot of prayer, and careful consideration with my wife over Thanksgiving, we decided that the timing of this race isn’t right for us.  That said, I hope to have an opportunity to serve Madison County and Mississippi in some capacity in the future."

Hopefully there will be another public service opportunity for you. Servants of your character are needed at all levels of government.

Who cares???

8:23, a lot of people probably care. Several that had encouraged him to run, and possibly several others that were/are considering it and would be interested in what this good potential candidate chose to do. If you don't care - that's fine. Frankly, I don't care that you don't care. But I did care to know what Cory was going to do.

Let's make a deal - why don't you go away along with 4:15 pm and we can all be happy while we call it even!

Why can't Cory sh*t or get off the pot? Can't he just announce for the new House seat so Mary's lackey & Frank Melton's lawyer doesn't win by default?

Even considering the Chancery Clerk position with a Yale Law degree is disturbing in itself

10:50 PM. Tell that to the attorney working in the mail room at my office.

Looks like a mighty thin GOP bench in MadCo.

Thin bench in Madison County? Hardly. This is a thread about one of them, and I won't hijack it by throwing more names around, but anyone who thinks that we don't have plenty of good young leaders in Madison County hasn't been paying attention.

10:50 (re your yale remark); Have you taken a look at what Chancery Clerks are allowed to 'make' these days? And if you consider never having to prepare a legal brief, never having to stay up all night preparing for court, never sitting for hours with clients struggling to work up a defense or prosecution....this is a damned good job for ANYbody with a law degree.

you're all sort of right. He is a nice guy, there are alot of nice guys out there, Cory is not an electable guy. Pure and simple, everybody sort of knows it but would never bring it up in nice conversation. I admit I'm hiding, but we all know it's true. Bill is also right, there will be plenty of folks run in that house race.

The only thing we know for certain to be "true" is that you are here anonymously casting aspersions about Wilson. That represents the beginning and end of truth in your comment.

No it doesn't 2:05, look at the picture to the right and then go watch the good folk come out of Wal-Mart. It ain't happ-nin!

Who's Cory?

While not unanimous, it appears Cory is a good man but we are left with who will run. My money is on Ronny Lott, who has said he is "75%" decided to run. Rumor mills have him associating with some leading Republican political operatives,and he has the history of personally funding his own campaign as needed.

Ronny Lott is the man for the job. He's done a tremendous job while on the BOS, has run several businesses, and seems to be fairly plugged into the Madison County community. Really haven't heard any other serious contenders. And if my memory recalls me correctly, he spent a pretty decent personal dime on his prior race??? Anybody have wind on any other candidates?

8:44 and 9:50 Chill Ronnie, chill.

What is the mini-mullet Ronnie sports about?

Will Longwitz should leave the Senate and run. He needs the paycheck.

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.
