She's crazy as shiat. She seems a perfect representative of Kentucky.

Ashely Judd's not only more of a Kentuckian than Rand Paul is a Kentuckian, she's more of a Kentuckian than Rand Paul is a "doctor."

Adding insult to injury, Paul also said Eastern Kentucky's drug problem is not "a real pressing issue," despite the fact that it's been ravaged by an epidemic. Keeling explained, "Only someone who is totally clueless would say that."

media.avclub.com

"Why in the world would you think that I, a peace officer sworn to uphold the law, would want to murder your brother and get his marijuana farm?"

"Because that's what Randy said."

"Randy's a drug dealer."

"Farmer!"

"And I tried to get him to quit. I come to him as a friend. I come to him as an elder of the church but he wouldn't give it up. And so now I've got to come to him as the law and you accuse me of planning a murder."

He even wears scrubs to press events so that you know he's a doctor.

He's such a great doctor that he created his own medical board to certify himself.

But in the same interview, Paul said something else of interest. A reporter asked that summer about the significance of Harlan County, Kentucky, which seemed like a fairly easy question for anyone, even those with only passing familiarity with the state.

Dumbass.  Everyone knows that Harlan county is famous for:

Former Kentuckian of sixteen years.  Just relocated out West two months ago.  I lived in Louisville, which is an awesome city and I miss dearly, but the rest of Kentucky (except for maybe Lexington, and the Northern KY area next to Cincinnati) are pretty much what you'd expect.

Eastern KY, especially the mining towns like Prestonsburg, are meth-ridden ghost towns.  Scary farking places, especially for an ethnically ambiguous darkie like myself.

Kentucky is also sixth in the nation for obesity, so while there are some fine looking ladies, 6 out of 10 are fatties.  I am amazed by how much thinner people are here out West.

As for Ms. Judd, she'll probably do well solely on the fact that she's a notorious Wildcats fan.  You would be surprised how much mileage she can get out of that little factoid alone.

No, somebody who has to create a certification board with members including his wife and his father-in-law to get certification to be a doctor is not a doctor, you can throw all the bullshiat answers and half-assed justifications you want to around it.

"She doesn't really represent Kentucky."

Says the guy from Texas.

Ashley doesn't have a chance at getting elected in Kentucky. She's been too vocal and too radical in her opposition to coal mining, and far too many jobs and local economies in the eastern (shaft mines and mountaintop removal) and western (strip mines) parts of the state rely on coal.
Too many people in the state also like their electricity cheap (only Idaho and West Virginia are less expensive) to fight against coal..

Well he is a "doctor" in the sense that he has been awarded a doctorate degree from an accredited university. He is not a "doctor" in the sense of a board certified ophthalmologist. He created his own certification on MSPaint and printed it out on his dot matrix printer.

I was born and raised in Lexington, and now live on the Indiana side of Louisville.

Judd is popular in Kentucky as long as she's on the sideline of UK basketball games...but she's simply not going to beat Turtleface Mitch in a Senate race.  I mean for the love of bourbon, she married a furrener, has lived in California, and her current residence is Tennessee...

His initial certification was from the American Board of Opthamology.

They are not "Board Certified". Being a certified doctor is a pretty long and complicated process. They don't just let you out of college and they say "Go for it!"

So much THIS

I went to Letcher County for a wedding, and I was the darkest person in the county. I was probably also the most sober.

I live in Northeastern Ky, quite possibly the only liberal in town other than my mother, and probably one of maybe 10 people in town who can pass a drug test.

She hasn't even announced her candidacy yet, and this guy is afraid of her?   Talk about insecurity.

Isn't Mitch McConnell from Kentucky?  Does her represent Kentucky?   If he does, we're genuinely screwed.

Soon after, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) added, "When I heard Ashley Judd might run for office I thought maybe it was Parliament since she lives in Scotland half the year."

Interesting.

Either Rand Paul has a subscription to Us Weekly or Republicans are legitimately afraid of this woman.

Right, and that's when the Judd campaign reminds viewers:

"I am hard pressed to think of a more conspicuous example of success than what [athletic director] Tom Jurich has accomplished for the University of Louisville in athletics for the last 15 years. Now ranked in the top five nationally, this year's Cardinal team is well-poised to make another run for the Final Four."

"But the Kentucky voters are too nuanced and sophisticated to condemn a U.S. senator for showing favoritism to a college basketball rival!" you say. Heh, heh, heh, really?

...but not enough to get elected to Senate.

Contrary to popular opinion, there *are* things more important in this state than being a UK fan...okay, not many.

If Democrats were really serious about unseating Mitch, they'd put their full force behind Alison Lundergen Grimes...

This.

Paul's line of attack, as presented here, won't work very well.  Being a famous (and attractive) UK booster would ordinarily let her sidestep the whole "liberal gone Hollywood" labeling from the right.  But getting tagged with the anti-coal label?  Kiss of death.  She'll give Mitch a pretty good run for his money, but she can't win here.

Rand Paul is a douchebag of the highest order, but you're plain wrong here. You don't have to be board certified to be a doctor or to practice medicine. He is licensed to practice medicine in Kentucky and has privileges at two hospitals where he performs eye surgery. Like it or no, the man is a doctor. The board certification thing is stupid, and the board he helped "found" is even stupider, but the man is a doctor, in the same way an NBA player without a shoe deal is still an NBA player.

Corvus: They are not "Board Certified". Being a certified doctor is a pretty long and complicated process. They don't just let you out of college and they say "Go for it!"


He still holds a doctorate so he still is a doctor, even if in title only.

I'm not really sure what the swipe against his credentials was meant for. Just because he's a raging buffoon and has terrible political opinions about everything doesn't mean he's not a competent medical practitioner. And if it was meant to be a swipe at his unrecognized self-certification I think it was probably too obscure to be effective.

She might be the perfect candidate.
-When she loses, the Democrats can hold her up as a poster child and continue to point at the GOP while calling them big meanies who hate women.
-If by some miracle she does win, Judd will drive the GOP absolutely batty.
 
2013-02-12 02:47:23 PM
Cool story bro:

Rand Paul previously held certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology, but let it lapse after a dispute about a rule change for recertification and started the National Board of Ophthalmology.

They are, and that's what's actually hurting the local coal industry at the moment.

But do you really think that's what the mine operators tell the boys, when they lay them off?  No, believe me, it's Obama an' all them damn regulations killin' off all our damn jobs...
