  1. I think the great state of Mississippi should send this Shape-shifting woman a message. First she was a Democrat during Clinton times switch to Republican during Bush administration and now she is disrespecting Mississippi residents by furthering that old narrative that im sure all Mississippi residents would like to move forward from. Mr Espy is a real Democrat and when the interest is the country he will work with the President.

  2. NOT RACIST! It's a dumb comment, but you really have to stretch to make it racist. Plenty of people of all colors and ethnicities have been publicly hanged. Ever see a cowboy movie where the bank robber is hanged on main street? Don't be in a victim mentality where a comment like this is considered racist. Move on with life.
