I had a good laugh yesterday courtesy of Jr’s comment on the post about that asshole masquerading as a school board member Michael Delesdernier because in all my time online with him, I’ve never ever seen an expletive used as Jr is squeaky clean that way. Jr is upset with another lying sack of shit, former St Tammany assessor candidate Trey Blossman. So if Trey Blossman is a “pigfucker” I don’t know what that makes Mississippi State Senator Gray Tollison but it is something worse folks. Before we get to that allow me to share the story behind how this story of North Mississippi jackassery made these pages sans Nowdy, who is greatly missed here.
I glanced at stats yesterday afternoon and noticed one of Nowdy’s archival posts on Obama’s belated nominee to be US Attorney for Mississippi Northern District in Felicia Adams getting some unusual traffic from the search string Gray Tollison divorce. I mention this because the early word was that ol’ Gray was Obama’s choice to be Northern District US Attorney. Yesterday, after standing for re-election Tuesday as a Democrat in Mississippi’s shrinking democrat country, Gray swapped parties. I think if I were a voter in Oxpatch I’d be more than a little pissed about the bait and switch as Gray certainly likely would have drawn a democrat opponent if he had swapped parties pre-election. The cut to the political partisans there had to be deep as we all witnessed the spectacle of Gray cuddled up with Boss Hogg yesterday making the announcement.
Duplicity and the Oxpatch bar is nothing new on these pages as these guys take the term ratfuck to a whole other level as we witnessed in the Scruggs prosecution, which the Tollison family had plenty to say about back in the day. Hidden agendas and advancement of self-interest is the real story there and we saw it play out real-time yesterday at the news conference in Jackson.
I normally go visit with the Daily Journal on the traditional media side and NMC on the new media side to glean news from that part of the state. NMC has been quiet thus far on the subject of his new republican state senator but I’m certain offline political circles there are buzzing on the topic. Tollison, of course, did not make the cut with Obama as his divorce is evidently very nasty and salacious. I mention that because it appears certain power members of the bar in Oxpatch have a problem constructively relating to women and in Tollison’s case whatever came up in his FBI background check that way must have been bad. The folks in Oxpatch are getting exactly the kind of person in office they deserve IMHO.
Most politicians are the exact same lying sacks of shit everywhere folks. We don’t exactly know what you are yet Gray but I feel certain the power of community sourcing will be able to figure a suitable moniker for ya here on Slabbed. 😉
