Big Lib Ashley Judd Wants to Run for Senate Against Mitch McConnell

Hollywood liberal Ashley Judd is making plans to run for US senate against Republican leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.
Judd is a big anti-gun lib. She cut ads for some wackadoodle leftist group against Sarah Palin in 2008.

Judd would rather see the wolves poisoned than shot. Now, that’s humane.

The Politico reported:

Ashley Judd vs. Mitch McConnell?

It might not be as far-fetched as you think.

The Hollywood movie star and eighth-generation Kentuckian is seriously exploring a 2014 run for the Senate to take on the powerful Republican leader, four people familiar with the matter tell POLITICO. In recent weeks, Judd has spoken with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) about the possibility of a run, has discussed a potential bid with a Democratic pollster and has begun to conduct opposition research on herself to see where she’s most vulnerable in the Bluegrass State, sources say.

Whether Judd jumps into the race remains far from certain. She’s reportedly also weighing whether to wait until 2016 to instead take on freshman Sen. Rand Paul, sources say.

But if Judd does become a candidate, she would be the biggest celebrity to run for the Senate since Al Franken’s successful 2008 bid for the Minnesota seat.

    Great looking woman but should stick to acting.

  • myohmy

    Bring it on.

  • mn jim

    I live in MN where wolves kill livestock and pets every year. This year we had a wolf hunting season. Once again, Sarah Palin was right.

    By the way, have you seen Judd recently? She got fat and dumpy-looking.

  • Grandma Perkins

    She just might have the edge.

    I remember reading about a trip someone took with this nitwit. I’m not sure if it was about entertainment or one of the “mercy” trips, because the entire article was taken up by judd’s battle with constipation. Every time judd was mentioned in the article, she was complaining about her chronic constipation problem which had hounded her her entire life. THE WHOLE ARTICLE was about that and you could tell the person writing it and traveling with her was pretty annoyed.

  • Judd-head has rubbed alot folks here in Ky the wrong way,with her liberal-views on mountain-top removal………..The girl was not born or raised here unlike her mother and sister…..She was born in Calf and lived most her life in Tenn the only connection she has to Ky is though her family and University of Ky where she she attented school……As Much as i think Mitch needs to go, i would refer him over some liberal elite from hollyweird……….

    Greetings from coal country (Pikeville, KY). We’d love to see Ashley run for office! I’m sure her anti-coal, anti-gun views will play well here as many of my neighbors are recently unemployed and struggling to feed their families with all the layoffs here. Not only is the coal business hurting, ALL business is hurting because the coal miner customers are becoming as scarce as hen’s teeth.
    Also, our electricity rates necessarily skyrocketed and are poised to necessarily skyrocket again and American Electric Power is planning layoffs. Also, the coal fired power plants in our region are also set to close. People around here are going to have to resort to hunting to survive! Oh… wait… she’s against that too.

  • Steve S.

    The name sounds familiar. Who is she?

  • Pink Tie Republican

    It would be nice if a true conservative with some backbone got Mitch’s seat, cause Mitch is a milquetoast.

  • Sasja

    Well, Pink Tie, maybe the good folks of that region can find someone.

  • shadow

    Well, Pink Tie, maybe the good folks of that region can find someone.

    Yeah, maybe they can find themselves another Richard Mourdock or a Sharon Angle.

    Bitch isn’t as bad as Boner. Still would prefer to see him get primaried.

    Oh please do. A Judd is a well known sl*t. She sat on NC side against UK in basketball game (this is sacrilegious), after KY voted for McCain. She was grand marshall of the Christmas parade in Ashland and sat on her bf’s, michael bolton, lap and made out with him throughout the parade. She hates coal. C’mon ashley, do it!

  • #8..Mike….My family was born and raised in Pike County and my father had to move to Illinois for work years back. Have Aunts, Uncles, and many relatives in Pikeville, Kimper, and Johns Creek Ky.
    We try to get back as much as possible, usually on Memorial day week or the week of Hillbilly days.
    My cousin drove truck for McCoy Elkhorn Coal and lost work a while back. I really miss them beautiful mountains and Smashburger custard. (if it is still there.)

    McConnel or Judd


    What good is McConnel?

  • Pam from Cape

    WOOHOO! Way to go Sarah Palin, WHAT A WOMAN! As for Judd, she’s an IDIOT!

  • Patty

    Ashley has been in College, this is why we haven’t heard from her. SHE NEEDS SOME EDUCATION SO SHE CAN HAVE SOME SORT OF PRO ON HER RESUME. She has lived for this moment and her backers will be UK Wildcats, and possible the Big College liberal elites.

    She can’t make it on the Big or small screen so she is trying her hand in Politics.

    You get what the liberals have seemed to have so excellently pulled off. A believable Bias media, inexperienced leader, what I called CELEBRITY SYNDROME and a nation that has suffered through 4 years of watching in amazement. WHAT HAPPENED. And now, compounded by more inefficiency like and elite SPACE CADET LIKE JUDD.

    If Judd was to be elected she will be another goof ball, oh so ready to take away gun rights and watch out, PETA WILL HAVE A PINHEAD IN THEIR CORNER TOO.

  • BigRed

    Another screeching bitter leftist with Mommy issues. She can shove that coat hanger up her fat a$$ for all I care. Just an ugly, ugly woman. I’ll take Naomi and Wynonna over her anyday.

  • Great, one more O-bot to worry about! Although I think “Kiss the Girls” is was a great vehicle for her acting talent and kick boxing skills. That’s the only film she’s done worth a look as far as I am concerned.

  • P. Aaron

    C’mon Kentucky, we know you’re smarter than this. Michigan elected Stabenow, & Granholm but I know Kentuckians are smarter than Michiganders.

    I know it. Don’t let me down!

  • greenfairie

    Sure, defeat McConnell in a primary with an untested conservative who will instantly transform into the American Taliban by the evil MSM while Judd will get positive publicity out the wazoo. If she runs, I’d rather it be against McConnell than the next Richard Mourdock or Todd Akin.

  • Craig

    Not much difference in the two really.

    Mitch is a RINO.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Sure, defeat McConnell in a primary with an untested conservative…

    That’s why any potential candidate needs to be thoroughly vetted, and any concerns addressed beforehand. Put that person through a simulated debate and make them face questions relevant to any subject that may come up. Don’t just jump on the bandwagon just because they say they’re conservative; make them prove it.

    And something to be very wary of is the Republican Party “leadership” being behind some candidate seemingly more enthusiastic than usual. That is likely to be trouble.

    She is also a big out-spoken advocate for the murdering of the unborn – she is such a peach.
