I mean, vote for them if you believe the veritable issuance of fecal matter coming from either one of the candidates’ mouths. I would hope you wouldn’t, but to each his own.
If you don’t agree with the two major candidates, I beg you to find a candidate with whom you do fully or even mostly agree. One who’s probably not lying about what they’re going to do in office.

It’s been said that being a Republican this year is like being single in your 30s – you’ve seen better, but you’re just going to have to settle with what you can get. Some Republicans argue that Mitt Romney was the least conservative candidate this year and are disappointed about his eventual nomination in Tampa. They shouldn’t be.

Have you ever turned on the news in the morning and listened to the whole news cycle, only to then hear it be repeated thirty minutes later? This happened to me the other morning, and frankly, I am tired of some things that the media and the public finds important or interesting.

Brandi LaBanc was not hesitant to express her passion for students and her desire to serve them as vice chancellor. 

The current Northern Illinois University associate vice president of student affairs was active in her sorority and studied accounting during her own college tenure. After graduating and starting work as an accountant, she quickly realized that wasn’t the right area of work for her.

Vice chancellor of student affairs candidate Edward Whipple described Ole Miss simply as “a beautiful campus and great people.”

In a Monday afternoon meeting, Whipple presented his vision for student affairs and touted his experience in similar positions. 

He began his presentation explaining how the sinking of the Titanic was the result of a lack of leadership – the captain ignoring warnings of ice ahead, the slow lowering of the life boats and the lack of binoculars used by the lookouts.

My first-ever DM appearance took place in spring 2010 in the form of a letter to the editor, a full year before I would be hired on as an opinion columnist.

 

My first-ever DM appearance took place in spring 2010 in the form of a letter to the editor, a full year before I would be hired on as an opinion columnist.

My topic? The separation of church and state.

I felt it was an important topic then, and I believe that it is an even more important topic now. With the November presidential elections fast approaching, it should come as no surprise that this perennial point of debate resurfaced last month when Republican candidate Rick Santorum appeared on ABC’s “This Week.”

Why is it that someone is more willing to help you or work with you if they know who you are? I’ve been contemplating this for a time, but we’ll come back to it.

After attending the Associated Student Body Debate, I can confidently say that no matter which candidates come out victorious, the students of the University of Mississippi will have qualified, dedicated and diligent representation.

Both the judicial chair and attorney general candidates are unopposed. Courtney Pearson, current judicial chair, and Matthew Kiefer, candidate for attorney general, have the qualifications and commitment to represent the student body skillfully in their positions.

In Saturday’s 52-7 drumming by the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ole Miss also lost the services of senior cornerback Marcus Temple for the remainder of the season.

Filling in for Temple, who had totaled 28 tackles, two interceptions and one sack before suffering a season-ending right ankle injury, will be freshman two-way player Nickolas Brassell and freshman cornerback Senquez Golson.

In just over a month, University of Mississippi students will make their way to the polls to cast their votes in the Mississippi gubernatorial election. But for some students, involvement with the election began months ago.

Megan McBeth, co-chairperson of the Ole Miss College Republicans, spent her summer working as a head intern for Republican Party candidate Phil Bryant.

I do not support much of anything Democratic gubernatorial candidate Johnny DuPree stands for.
Like most Mississippi Democrats, he’s more conservative than a Massachusetts Republican, and I have trouble supporting someone who so inadequately represents my views.
For my trouble, I was called a troll.  
I don’t consider myself particularly idealistic anymore; it’s been beaten out of me by age and experience, and while I don’t expect what remains to last, it has been replaced with keen observation.

The push for a gubernatorial debate at the University of Mississippi quickly became a waiting game for the campus and student body. 

The wait is finally over, but it has ended in disappointment.

Lieutenant governor Phil Bryant spoke to students Wednesday night about the importance of young people’s participation in upcoming elections.

“Get involved,” Bryant said to students. “Rise above your own self-interest and then celebrate the victory because it certainly is going to be ours.”

Bryant announced his campaign for governor as a republican candidate in January and has since announced proposals for new policies if he is victorious.

Lexi Thoman addresses an important topic in her column on voting and voter apathy. However, there is a further source of voter apathy which she has not addressed but which is implicit in her formulation of the election process.

Dear Rebels,
I doubt I was the only one amazed at a comment made by ASB presidential candidate Taylor McGraw in Monday’s edition of The Daily Mississippian. Mr. McGraw said that the ASB received between $70,000 and $80,000 in a good year but that, after “operational costs,” they are left with only $30,000 to distribute to campus organizations. That means that between 57 and 62 percent of the money we give to our student government goes to financing our student government!

The objective for defensive football players is to tackle and bring the opponent down. But for this year’s version of the Ole Miss defense, tackling and giving up a large number of points have been major concerns.

1. Alabama (2-0 overall, 0-0 in SEC, 1st last week): Alabama’s whipping of traditional rival Penn State came without two of the Crimson Tide’s top players: running back Mark Ingram (injury) and Marcel Dareus (suspension). When the pair returns, look for Alabama to be even more unstoppable.
