Ashley Judd for Senate?
Big Hollywood ^ | 8 Nov 2012 | William Bigelow

Posted on 11/08/2012 12:11:28 PM PST by Bratch

Henry Clay. Daniel Webster. Ashley Judd?

Yes, there are actually Democrats in Kentucky so eager to get rid of Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell that they would support putting Ashley Judd up as the Democratic Senator for Kentucky.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-3rd District, said: “If you had an Ashley Judd-McConnell race, I think it would be as high profile a race as Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown… The money would pour in here as soon as she entered the race.” 

Former Auditor Crit Luallen said that Judd would be “an attractive candidate.” Some supporters of the idea say such a race could make for the “premier race in the country.”

Seriously.

Seriously, the Senate has some ridiculous characters and so too the House....crazy J Jackson, Grayson just to name a few. She might have a chance. McConnell is kind of long in the tooth and wishy washy lately. Hope not.

At least if she were to win there would be no confusion about which side of the aisle that seat would be on.

Bring it on.

As she is not well liked in Hollywood this may be a plot by her peers to rid themselves of her. lol

The Senate? Why aim so low? I think, with her governing abilities and wisdom, she should go right for the top spot.

When Judd made a statement against the killing of wolves in Alaska, Sarah Palin shot her down in 5 seconds.

She's fluff.

I love her. She is a great actress and I love the fact that she and her husband are still married. I didn’t know she was a Democrat especially since she is beautiful. lol.

Al Franken, Ashley Judd, assorted Kennedys, Bill Clinton’s wife, Caligula’s horse - it’s a big Senate, plenty of room for more comedy.

I think she can get 2/3rds of the vote.

Among the Judd family, that is. Naomi is a Republican.

I think poor Ashley has spent too much time next to the shotgun shorties on her sister’s Harley.

Kentucky is home to a sufficient number of idiots to vote her in. If she doesn’t run, the Lt Governor will run and take Mitch out.

I live in Kentucky. You might be right about that. Mitch is one schrewed politician, but I think his time is nearing an end. Kentucky is bipolar politically. It votes GOP at the national level(except Louisville), but still votes old school Democrat largely at the state level. It’s as if they want welfare and guns at the same time.

“oh gawd

I heard an interview on the radio the other day with a gentleman who was speaking about how Obama generated so much support despite his dismal record. He said something disturbing but that may have some basis in fact. His point was that many people especially younger folks, valued hip, cool and celebrity affiliations in politicians more than leadership skills or ability.

I am afraid that we will see many more useless celebrity types running for office in the next decade or two. Tapping into the vapid pop culture support that is out there and growing.

Isn’t this the state that voted in Rand Paul 2 yrs ago?

I’m mean equating Ky with Mass and Minn is pretty much a stretch IMHO.

Rather bizarre given that she is a resident of Tennessee and was a delegate to the DNC from Williamson County this year.

She will easily win Louisville and the housewife suburbs there but that is about it. She is neither a hardcore conservative like Rand Paul nor is she in the good ole boy pork network like McConnell.

She is a fruit cake.

Then again, I thought Romney would win so don’t listen to me!

Howdee!

I went to school in Paintsville many moons ago.

She’s been easy on the eyes, but I got vapor lock in the brain when I sa a show about her. Strickly wacko environmentalist.

Howdy.

I live in Louisville, although I’m originally from rural southern Indiana......lived in Bowling Green about 18 years ago for a few months and wish I had stayed there.

The more I think about it the more I wonder if she could topple Mitch. I would rather have Mitch over her nutty self anyday. Picking Farmer for Lt. Gov. didn’t do David Williams any favors, although I’m sure David figured it would. Who konws.

I’m far removed from KY state politics. She sure is prettier than dingy Harry.
