Actress Ashley Judd and Indy Car driver Dario Franchitti are ending their marriage after 11 years, and, yes, the news impacts Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Judd is weighing whether to jump into politics and challenge McConnell in Kentucky in 2014. She was in Washington for the inauguration and attended an event at EMILY's List, the group that backs pro-choice Democratic women running for governor or Congress. Judd even carpooled with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who demonstrated she knows how to win in a red state after defeating the self-injurious Todd Akin.

The voters of Kentucky should remove McConnell one way or the other.

I doubt that Mitch McConnell will prove to be as bad a candidate as Todd Akin was . . .

She’s a deluded, stupid slut who thinks she matters. Just think back to the Oscar show when she walked across the stage, wwearing no panties and gown slit completely up to her crotch. No class! I saw her mother on a clip from Piers Morgan and just about vomitted. What a pack of phony drama queens are the judd b*tches!

Was watching the 24 Hours at Daytona on Sunday and Franchitti was absolutely ebullient during an interview. I will let everyone decide who is happy about pulling the plug on that marriage.

YES!!!! I will never again have to hear her idiotic musings during an Indy 500 broadcast!

Guess I’ll have to start referring to Dario as “The Former Mr. Judd” now...

I hit the mute button during a recent soliloquy (last year?).

Flaky loudmouth. If McConnell got serious there is no telling what he could learn about Ms Judd.

The story says that she probably WON’T run and implies that is bad news for McConnell because a “conservative” Democrat will now be his opponent.

Kentucky ain’t Massachusetts, and Mrs Franchitti would have zero chance of winning.

Can we pay the SAT or ACT folks to put together a aptitude/certification test for candidates?
Hell, even if they had to appear on Jeopardy or Are you smarter than a 5th grader, we could eliminate a fair number of dems and rinos.

Categories:
1. US Constitution
2. Economics 101
3. US State Capitols
4. First aid
5. Military history
6. Common Sense

Any other suggestions?

Have to wonder when she’ll move to Kentucky to establish residence. She is living in Nashville and has been for quite some time. I think her mother and sister also live there. Saw comments last night on a Univ. of Kentucky basketball chat board wherein one fellow commented his cousin had been doing extensive construction/re-modeling work at her N’ville home. I cannot assume this is in preparation for a move to Kentucky but it might be. Judd is quite liberal.

I have seen her image with a “This is what a feminist looks like (or something similar)” T-shirt. I don't think it is photo shopped.

True but we don't have Kentucky to thank for Obama. :-)

I have made a suggestion in the past that every voter should be required to name at least 75% of the U.S. Presidents with when he served. During the summer, I mentioned Chester Arthur to someone and she giggled before saying “We had a President named Arthur?”

Kentucky went for Romney with something like 64% of the vote.
