A Note to Conservative Voters: Stacey Pickering is THE Establishment Candidate in the Race for State Auditor

Thus far in the Mississippi Primary Campaign, which comes to its final conclusion on Tuesday, there seems to be a great deal of confusion among conservative voters across the state about who is and who is not the Establishment candidate in the race for State Auditor.

So let’s clear up the confusion really quick:

Stacey Pickering is the Establishment’s man in this race, regardless of personal feelings about his opponent.  The Barbours are backing Pickering, which should be the measuring stick for determining Establishment membership.  Austin Barbour is raising money for Pickering’s campaign.  And it’s widely believed that Pickering is protecting the Barbours in his lofty position.  Pickering, it might also be noted, chaired Mitt Romney’s campaign in Mississippi.  You can’t get any more Establishment than that.

Mary Hawkins Butler does not have Establishment support.  She is no longer in the esteemed “Inner Circle.”  She has been ostracized by the Barbours, who, from rumors circulating around the state, did not want her to run against their boy Pickering.

So in the primary election on Tuesday, if one is voting along Establishment/Anti-Establishment lines, a vote AGAINST Stacey Pickering is the only vote against the Barbour Machine and business as usual.

    There’s something happening here
    What it is ain’t exactly clear
    There’s a man with a gun over there
    Telling me I got to beware

    I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    There’s battle lines being drawn
    Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
    Young people speaking their minds
    Getting so much resistance from behind

    I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    What a field-day for the heat
    A thousand people in the street
    Singing songs and carrying signs
    Mostly say, hooray for our side

    It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you’re always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away

    We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down
    Stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down
    Stop, now, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down
    Stop, children, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    Yes it is. An anti-establishment song for an anti-establishment posting.

  3. I got a political call today about how wonderful Pickering is, how he is being targeted unfairly and that everything that is being said about him is just a lot of nonsense. Did anybody else get a call like that?
