Her campaign slogan should be "A vote for me, is a vote for hotness."
 
2013-01-22 08:50:50 AM  
She can explore my seat any time.

I say go for it, though I think it might be hard for her to win because she's been so open about her struggle with bipolar disorder. It doesn't bother me, but people can be close-minded about mental illness and I could see her opposition using that to brand her as unstable.

Close-minded?! The Republican Party's been courting the mentally ill vote for decades!

But, in her defense, she is very hot.

Have you seen the behavior from the House lately? I think mental illness is the order of the day there.

The sooner McConnell's influence on the nation ends, the better.
 
2013-01-22 09:21:41 AM  
McConnell's main advantage is that, as the dirtiest guy in Washington, he can outfundraise damn near anybody.  With Judd's connections in Hollywood, she might be able to close that gap a little.

Mental illness you say? Why get that women an NRA membership and a AR-15 straight away!

And before you think "well, it's Kentucky, she has no shot", local and statewide politics are as purple as they come. The state's not as deep-red as one might assume, and working here in Louisville I can anecdotally tell you there is a *lot* of dissatisfaction with McConnell.

so, what you are trying to say is that whenever Judd's campaign against McConnell comes up, it should get the Wheaton tag?

I'm in Lexington, and It's the same here.  She'll have trouble getting any support in Derpistan, though.

For some reason, I find her style of attention whoring to be twice as irksome as other C-list celebrities.

NKY here, and basically same. She would be destroyed by the sea of derp. the turtle would run one "hollywood liberal" ad and she would have no chance.

In other words, get out the Anti-Turtle vote!

Yeah, you say that, but then I looked at the election results on election day. We're a blue city surrounded by red everywhere else. Maybe Lexington and Bowling Green, but the rest is going to rubber stamp R on their voting ballots.

Nonsense, my friend. As long as it is a fist sized strap-on, it would be perfectly watchable.

On the one hand, seriously, another actor?

On the other hand, still a trillion times better than McConnell.

On the gripping hand, a 40 year old rotting park bench would do a better job than McConnel.

Yeah, it was surprising to look at older election results from deep Appalachian territory around Floyd/Pike counties and to see how well even Kerry and Dukakis did there. It was a pretty solid Democratic area, it seems... up until 2008.

And, if Mitch is told beforehand that it's his wife and former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao operating the strap-on, he'll just think it's Wednesday.

With any luck, McTurtle will get mortally wounded and drained of cash in a brutal primary.

I predict any campaign by Ms. Judd will get about as far as Roseanne Barr's presidential bid.
It's a publicity stunt.

I don't see how the GOP could ever use that as a means to attack her, though.

They currently worship an actor-turned-politician as a saint.

//oh, who the f*ck am I kidding, the GOP can do whatever they want seeing as their supporters are primarily mongoloids who have as much sense of history as your average spermatazoa.

Key difference - Roseanne was annoying. Judd is hot, which inherently makes her less annoying

I personally think McConnell has a better chance of getting primaried (if the Tea Party is still viable in 2014) than anything else. Keep in mind, though, like you said when there wasn't a black guy on the (D) ticket, many of those backwater counties were blue. Clinton even carried the state in '92 and '96.

Refugee from derpistan, ky here. while there's a lot of dissatisfaction with mcconnell, i have no doubt that once the "hollywood liberal" ads start coming out, the gun nuts, anti-choice folks, etc., will come out en mass for the turtle.
