Description: 

Jackson is the capital of Mississippi. Clarence Snopes moves there after he is elected to the state legislature. The narrator's depiction of the state politics as a "hog trough" is very cynical (132), and nothing Clarence does there, including teaching "a Sunday school class" at a Baptist church in Jackson (132) while politically "preaching the same hatred of Negroes and Catholics and Jews" as the KKK which he had campaigned against (131), gives readers any reason to view it otherwise.
