He's definitely lost my vote. I'm not crazy about the idea of voting for a Republican't, but WOW, Joe Brown is dirty.
Joe was a great judge, a great success on his TV show but a small time candidate for public office.
The Party slate is really weak this year. Deidre seems to be a good candidate even if she is running against the best the Pubs have to offer. But in addition to Joe, Henri goes off the deep end, Rhonda has no idea what the job she is running for does, you can't read Bennie's signs, and most of the others have no visible campaign.
Just hoping that they don't take Cheyenne down with them.
What's next Joe Clown?
Clowning like this for the Media keeps his name out there...
Joe Brown needs to lay off the juice ! There are youtubes of him after a few "stiff" ones ... So sad that the City where a great man gave his life for "content of character" .. this city never even comes close to voting by it.. sad sad sad
I have no great love for Amy Werich, but Joe Brown would be a disaster for Memphis.
Have Democrats ever fielded a more sorry list of candidates for office than what they have fielded this year? And all of them come from Memphis (sort of. some seem to run for office in Memphis yet not live there). and now we have WREG showing us that Janice Fullilove was playing video poker during the pension debate yesterday. No wonder the munis are growing and Memphis in shrinking!
I actually believe that there are enough decent people in this county, of all races, that will vote against Joe Brown and Henri Brooks. Sure, there will be people that vote for them, but I expect an overwhelming rebuke in a few weeks in August.
When Herenton ran against Cohen for Congress, I was convinced that blacks would overwhelmingly vote for Herenton due to name recognition and because he was black. The results of that election gave me hope that people actually look at the candidate and not the color.
I fully expect those results will duplicate themselves in this election.
I believe I just left the Democratic party.
So basically being a officer you get free passes right, wtf desk duty come on you do crazy things in a position to protect others and you end up with desk duty, doesn't make any since and it's not fair at all! I won a lawsuit against mpd I had my phone recording the chief and fellow officers I prayed about it and guess what they didn't believe the tape but I had video to so with audio and video with no editing I'm I still lying, by the grace of God one of the officers told Internal affairs the truth about what his partner did! They stopped me and said my tags doesn't match the vehicle get out I'm like wth why is it on my registration with the tag number he broke my door handle pulled my carpet bak broke my ashtray holder (took out my drill, and started to take my dash apart, with my tools then poured all my tools out I had my phone in the other recording him. Honestly I felt so bad being that I didn't do anything and was being treated like a criminal! !
That is just sick. The Wierichs are good people. I've sat side by side with them for years watching our children.
Mr. Wierich is an able attorney in private practice. I think slander is appropriate in this one.
When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.
Sorry Jeff, but a tool has some use.
Does this mean that Joe Brown won't be attending the annual Pride Parade in midtown?
The Democrats, "War on Women" never stops.
To the Flyer: Don't write anymore articles on Brown or Brooks. They have no money to spend on their campaign and rely on the media to keep their campaign alive. Please, no more senseless articles.
They had the good sense, in Dudes vs. Mouthy Broads, to strike down the provision allowing a man to throw a perfectly good beer at her head. It's like I tell my friends, drink it first, dude. If you have to throw it, wait until it's mostly backwash.
Jesus, what a tool.
If you have experienced the "Memphis driver" syndrome, i.e. the car in the intersection to turn with no blinker, or...well never mind. There should be no surprise about car insurance rates.
The video has been taken down from YouTube, which means the embed code won't work. Unless someone downloaded a copy of the video while it was up on YouTube, it's gone.
Regardless, this is completely disgusting. Democrats need to get their shit together and find some candidates that aren't completely fucking embarrassing. This has been an awful year.
Geri is correct.
People like a winner. The people who conduct these polls know all about the "bandwagon effect": When a candidate is shown to be winning, that in itself generates votes.
That is why there are so many PHONY polls and surveys. They aren't all showing you how Americans are thinking or voting. They are actually swaying your vote and subtly influencing your thinking. They show you what the majority thinks (true or false) so that you will remember, and you DO remember, and act accordingly.
That's why Romney was favored to win (because he wasn't).
Not saying there aren't any REAL polls left, but Jesus wept, why would you believe a bunch of lawyers? I will never take a poll seriously again.
Mr. Baker, Did you intend in your article to demean the endorsements heretofore offered by either, or both, the Democratic and Republican parties of Shelby County? Surely.those endorsements are "credible" and worthy of consideration in your view.
