If Ashley Judd would like to do some public service, she should first promise to never make a sequel to Twisted.

From Politico:

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.

Hopefully Judd waits until 2016, because I would pay to watch Rand Paul dismantle her in a debate.

Presumably Judd would poll poorly among the Kentucky coal miner demographic.

Irony flashback: Judd once said this about Sarah Palin:


Got it. Wolf killing = cruel and senseless.

Baby killing = not so bad:

    When I was single, I'd only go out with good looking women, so I wouldn't fall for someone that I wasn't attracted to.

    It's amazing how many that I thought were good looking got real ugly after they began speaking.

    Ms. Judd is a prime example of this phenomenon.

  2. dsmerri on December 4th, 2012 6:01 pm

    Jeez, baby steps Ash, maybe try running for congress in a lib district before running for senate in a solidly red state!

    She isn't off to a good start when her Grandmother appears to be supporting Mitch McConnell:

    Should actress Ashley Judd decide to take on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2014, she may not have her own grandmother in her corner.

    Polly Judd, a former member of the Ashland city commission and a political activist, told the Associated Press: “I think Mitch has done more for Ashland than anybody else who has been in there.”

    “That means a lot,” she went on. “He’s been here personally, and we don’t always get that from politicians who represent us.”

    Of course Granny seems to get the bigger picture:

    “She’s a Hollywood liberal,” Polly Judd said of her granddaughter. “It would be interesting to see what type of race she would run.”

    Just remember this saying:

    beauty is only skin deep, but ugly is to the bone.

  5. Marshall_Will on December 4th, 2012 6:14 pm

    No kidding! Lay-up "appointments" on the installment plan is what Libs specialize in. Start there.

    If ever there was a hollyweirdo that had an over estimation of themselves, she'd be it. She's used to delivering lines where your co-lead patiently waits for you to emote. You know, just like Sheriff Joe kept chill while Paul Ryan spoke?

  6. Truesoldier__ on December 4th, 2012 6:34 pm

    I'm all for her trying to take a giant leap, because when she falls flat on her face it will be much harder for her to ever recover.

  7. MAB on December 4th, 2012 8:13 pm

    Sounds to me like the thought of a "strong willed and minded " woman scares you. Come everyone it's time to step into the 21st century and get use to the fact that woman will speak there minds … And not stay barefoot pregnant and in the house where most of you would like them to stay.

  8. Lib Kook Ashley Judd running for Mitch McConnell’s Senate Seat? on December 4th, 2012 8:22 pm

    [...] Kentuckians may indeed love her, they’re not going to buy her brand of crazy. For instance, Doug Powers reminds us of this deliciously studpid Ashley Judd-ism: Wolf killing = bad, [...]

  9. Dale on December 4th, 2012 8:47 pm

    Are you kidding me? Strong willed and minded? I for one am not afraid of strong women (unless they can kick my ass in a fist fight). I just don't see how being a Hollywood nutcase lib is being strong. I love liberal logic, If you don't tow the Democratic line than you want women barefoot and pregnant. MAB, you are an idiot.

  10. jeffythequick on December 4th, 2012 9:13 pm

    psst… MAB, you're new here, so here are some pointers:

    1. It's rude to show up at a place and make an accusation based on ignorance.

    2. Show some data as to why you're saying what you're saying. If it's just an opinion, at least give it some thought, and not sputter the party line (see Dale's response)

    3. Interesting how you brought up the "barefoot and pregnant" canard, but what Mr. Powers was illustrating the irony of Ms. Judd coming out against the killing of wolves, but in favor of killing humans* in the womb. See, irony is when something that should be congruent isn't, and makes the observer wonder about that inconsistency.

    4. As far as strong women go, not a big fan of weak women, that's why I'm raising 4 strong daughters while married to a strong woman. It's nice not to have to do all the thinking in the house, and be complimentary in our weaknesses and strengths. Plus, I'm raising strong boys to respect strong women.

    Before you go there, Mrs. thequick has an MBA, and she wants to be at home right now, because raising children takes a mom, and she is more qualified than anyone we could hire. Any woman that would, through selfishness and/or weakness abandon their children for others to raise is quite weak, indeed. When I say selfish/weak, I mean that they want to find themselves in their work, want a nice house/car/clothes at the expense of the welfare or life of her children, not those that need to work to survive. But, if you need me to explain this, you're beyond hope of understanding.

    5. (minor point, we all make mistakes) We're big fans of the English language here, and it's "their", as in possessive, and grammar demands that you put a comma after an introductory clause, like "come everyone, …" Language is used to convey what's in your mind to the reader, and based on your utterances, I hope you don't have children, nor plan to. It makes my offspring a higher concentration in the gene pool.

    Good luck in your response. I await it with anticipation.

    *those cells are human, and alive. The question at hand is whether they're a person, in the case of living in the womb.

  11. Marshall_Will on December 4th, 2012 9:16 pm


    Thanks for the heavy lifting. Is this guy even remotely aware most of Doug's posters are also Michelle Malkin fans too? Oh… that's right, when it comes to c-o-n-s-e-r-v-s-a-t-i-v-e women it's perfectly okay to prefer them barefoot & pregnant (TM)

    Or was that turning tricks in a whorehouse? as her hatemail o' the day never seems to skimp on? Here's the deal, not unlike our current Pander-In-Chief, Ms. Judd has zero corp. experience and NO background in politics. But b/c she's Left-connected they seem to think it merits circumventing all that and going right for the brass ring!

    That and she's slimey. She's never shied from exploiting the conversation with a coy phrase to deflect [obvious] and deserved criticism. Just keep battin' those eyelashes sweetie!

  12. jeffythequick on December 4th, 2012 9:19 pm

    yeah, others were not smart, or they had other issues…

    Smart, classy, and wise were huge pluses. Mrs. thequick got bonus points for that, so I married a 16/10 (2 bonus points for each one…)

  13. Truesoldier__ on December 4th, 2012 9:34 pm

    Why is it whenever a liberal woman speaks her mind it is strong willed, but if a Conservative woman does the same they are attacked in utterly misogynistic ways by liberals. If you need any examples of what I speak of, just take a look at Michelle Malkin's hate mail from the left, the political cartoons and narratives aimed at Condolezza Rice, or the utter contempt and dismissivness the left has of Governor Nikki Haley to name a few examples?

  14. Granny55 on December 4th, 2012 10:08 pm

    Thank you Mr. Quick!!! I am a 57 yr. old conservative strong willed woman who thinks for herself. Me thinks MAB is doing a drive by and won't attempt a coherent answer to your statement. He might run over to the White House web site and get a few pointers from their Julia saga and come back with another similar, but stupid, barefoot and pregnant comment but I doubt he will stick around for long.

    He is better suited to trolling on porn sites where he can get his fill of the type of woman he desires.

  15. jeffythequick on December 4th, 2012 11:13 pm

    Yeah, I noticed it's been 2 hours, and it's typical for the poop and scoot crowd.

    At least that guy with the global warming discussion a month ago had some data that we could talk about.

  16. Marshall_Will on December 4th, 2012 11:26 pm

    "He might run over to the White House web site and get a few pointers from their Julia saga and…"

    Ha! Post election it seems 'Julia' was all Mrs. Will and I TALKED about! We roared as we clicked thru the "phases" of her life and nowhere is a father figure ( let alone male ) or church mentioned..? Course w/ The State as your sugar daddy who needs some dude hanging around?

    Julia it appears, will have a number of dudes stroll/waltz/crash in and out of her life. It's all good!

  17. Marshall_Will on December 4th, 2012 11:35 pm

    Sorry! My bad, forgot Nikki!

    Really not my/our style but at this point, with a pResident ( that has nothing more to 'win' ) and 49.9% of the country with nothing to LOSE.., why SHOULDN'T we run Dear Ms. Ashley thru the ringer just as they have w/ every-single-conservative woman in American politics? Oh, Michele Bachman!

    How will she address her utter lack of experience? "That's precisely WHY I'm running! Washington has too many beltway vets and mine would be a fresh perspective!"

    Sorry toots, we've got all the "fresh perspective" we can handle right now so why not just come clean and say you're angling to cash in on your looks and celebrity to make for (1) more Al Franken/Rubber Stamp for an agenda more in need of a brakeman, not another boiler stoker?

    Oh and ask Scott BROWN how primping for the cameras worked out when REAL Progs can be had for the asking!

  18. Marshall_Will on December 5th, 2012 12:26 am

    Not one to meh off the cuff, but this is Kintucky we're talking about right? Any place where P'BO got 38% of the vote, should be on our short list of places to move/retire..!

    More likely she's got another… "strong willed but incredibly attractive damsel in distress overcoming daunting odds after being betrayed by a spineless self-serving male" movie coming out so her handlers had her throw that out "for effect". Likely opposite Morgan Freeman, again…

    When P'BO makes PR a State he can just appoint her their First Governess/Vice Duke.

    O/T…Surprise, surprise Obama's illegal alien uncle gets his deportation case re-opened.

  20. Truesoldier__ on December 5th, 2012 12:39 am

    And speaking of Nikki:

    A woman has been arrested and charged with making a threat against South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

    Liberty police say 46-year-old Jennifer Phillips was arrested Tuesday and charged with threatening a public official.

    A district spokesman says Phillips – who was a volunteer with the Santa's Workshop program at the school – made the remark to a school employee around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    According to an incident report obtained by WSPA, Phillips said, "I'm going to smuggle a gun in and kill this Governor."

  21. SignPainterGuy on December 5th, 2012 1:04 am

    Oh, but of course there`ll be the "shooting stars"; men who`ll be the cause for her need for free condoms and abortions on demand, but won`t be responsible for the result of THAT moment !

  22. SignPainterGuy on December 5th, 2012 1:12 am

    I get email alerts when anyone replies to my comments. It`s fascinating that I get replies from this type of troll 5 months down the road, like I won`t know they "got the last word" !

  23. Marshall_Will on December 5th, 2012 2:22 am

    "Later, Haley told reporters the threat was just another part of the job."

    We need to watch this one a little. It'll be hard to pin this one on the old Tea Party huh? Did Phillips think this was only fair given Jared Loughner's… affiliation?

    Or will the LSM sweep yet another under the carpet as an annoying but harmless, performance artist?

  24. Marshall_Will on December 5th, 2012 2:31 am

    Dude is 68 y.o and been in the United States illegally since 1963. If nothing's happened by now it never will.

    I'm now convinced there's (3) means by which one can live in this country illegally indefinitely without fear of deportation: a) Have jihadist ties, b) kill lots of Jews and c) work in a liquor store.

  25. backwoodsconsr on December 5th, 2012 8:24 am

    If a troll says something stupid in a forest, and nobody is there to hear it, does the noise it makes even matter?

  26. Ralph Gizzip on December 5th, 2012 9:21 am

    Ashley Judd running against Mitch McConnell? One mindless twit running against another. What could go wrong?

  27. Marshall_Will on December 5th, 2012 11:35 am

    Touche`. But I'd rather see another TP Rand Paul give Mitch a run for his money and *primary* his azz than a media lovefest where Chrissy Matthews will have to FAKE the leg thrills in another disgusting display of bodice ripping journo-tooling.

    We're forever talking about Texas but are we overlooking Kentucky as another citadel or conservative power base? Probably what's driving Ms. Judd's trial balloon mega-discount sale! And don't her mom and sis [privately] OWN about one fourth the state? Be a shame if ED were enacted to turn those fine bluegrass acres into a crony windfarm huh..?

    Good to see you over here Ralph. Always enjoy your posts at MM!

  28. jeffythequick on December 5th, 2012 11:57 am

    Liberalism is the religion of violence; that's why they love the RoP so much.

    And MAB, sweetheart, if you're still listening, I do have the evidence to back this up.

  29. Marshall_Will on December 5th, 2012 12:16 pm


    Stunningly, at the same time, they're experts in thought policing those they think will resort to it next! Even if that means thumbing thru a phonebook to find a Tea Party member w/ the same generic name, rushing to PRINT w/ it then mumbling a 'retraction' at 2am 4 days later…

  30. SignPainterGuy on December 5th, 2012 12:43 pm

    To the other troll with him, yes, and to the Daily Kos and WhiteHousedotguv and Soros, but the squirrels are known to try to bury them with their other nuts.

  31. Truesoldier__ on December 5th, 2012 1:32 pm

    Couldn't agree with you more on this. There are so many RINO's that need to be primaried in the next few years, McConnell and Boehner being the top two in my opinion. From what I am hearing Boehner's negotiation offers do not have the backing of the majority of the R House and Senate members. It appears that he is hoping to have just enough party support in the House along with all the Dem's to ram through whatever he agrees to with Obama (this is coming from Sen Jim DeMint in an interview with Mark Levin the other day). There is also the removal of some outspoken Conservatives from their committee posts in the House by Boehner and the other leadership as retaliation/intimidation for not towing the party line.

  32. Truesoldier__ on December 5th, 2012 1:32 pm

    I have also heard rumor that many House Conservatives are considering taking and caucasing on their own (not with the R's or the D's). This would in effect neuter Boehner as the R's would no longer have a majority caucas (as there would be 3 seperate caucauses). The downside is that Pelosi would get the gavel back. The upside would be that she would not have enough votes to get anything past and the House would come to a standstill. This could be a good move as it would be up to Pelosi to push and agenda, but nothing would actually get done as she could not get a simple majority vote to pass and it would keep weepy from offering up any more BS that is driving Conservatives further and further away.

  33. SignPainterGuy on December 5th, 2012 4:26 pm

    Saw this in the newer post. I see it as a chance to purge BIG-Rs for Conservative little-r`s and gaining power with true conservatives. It may be painful, but I`m seeing this as necessary !

  34. Truesoldier__ on December 5th, 2012 4:37 pm

    Agreed. I am not big on the idea of a 3rd party, but it may be neccessary and this would be the best way to start.
