  1. When are you going to shut your face. Coming from a citizen of Ms. you were a worthless blow hole as governor and you are still a blow hole

  2. Barbour should not comment on this when he has nothing to say about Christie. Oh but I forgot how many killers did Barbour pardon before leaving office?

  3. I care about what “Boss Hogg” (AKA Haley Barbour) has to say about like I care about many jelly beans are in a glass jar!!
