barneyfifesbullet: Comedy gold.

Especially when she equates coal mining to rape. Hell, she equates everything to rape.


If it's a legitimate mining operation, the Earth has ways to shut that whole thing down.

Can someone let me know whether corn dogs are a popular snack in Kentucky?

Um...no reason.

Except unlike the GOPs failure to understand female biology or human emotion whenever they mention rape, saying Mountain Top Removal is rape of the land is actually pretty much spot on. Plunder and despoliation (for instance of land) is actually one of the definitions of the word "rape".


The GOP doesn't understand that at least 50% of the population thinks rape is bad.

So, Kentucky Democrats, like the governor who is about to legalize religious discrimination and gave a huge tax break to the makers of the Bedrock Educational Park and Snake Oil Bottling Company, don't like Ashley Judd? She has my vote.

/And, if "Mama He's Crazy" isn't her campaign song, she isn't trying to win.

ZeroCorpse: I kind of hope she wins. It might be nice to have a Senator who everyone has seen naked.

Correction: Who anyone  wanted  to see naked.

She must really like rape.


Which is just irresponsible of her, really. She'll end up pregnant that way.

Zasteva: monoski: SploogeTime: She is not unqualified as far as I know. She is of the minimum age, an American citizen, and resides in the state. Those three things, plus getting oneself elected, are the only qualifications there are.

hehehehehehehehe. Good one, I liked it. Oh, BTW, she DOESN'T reside in KY, yet.

Current address = Grenada Hills (Los Angeles suburb) - source Wiki

First, it seems likely that she has more than one residence.

Second, while wikipedia is great, and I will certainly not trash it as an information source for most purposes, I'm not sure it's the best source for quasi-public and rapidly changing information, such as where a celebrity lives.

Who knows though? Maybe I'm wrong. If they post her cell phone number please call her for me. You can tell I'm free for a date next Wednesday.


I'm going to be so pissed if the next Wikipedia update, under Ashley Judd's 'Personal Life' is ...currently dating Zavesta...

bronyaur1: SploogeTime: McConnell sucks. Ashley unqualified. BUT, I will take her stained blue panties with the UK insignia. I'd rather vote for Uncle Rukus.


She is not unqualified as far as I know. She is of the minimum age, an American citizen, and resides in the state. Those three things, plus getting oneself elected, are the only qualifications there are.


Well, technically she doesn't reside in the state yet.  Her sister Wynona bought her a farm in Tennessee back in the 90's, so she'd be closer to the rest of the family in Nashville.  She'd have to set up a residence in KY again to be eligible. . .but she could easily establish a residence in the Commonwealth inside of 24 hours if she wanted it.

In terms of broader job qualifications, as I'd noted, she's got a Master of Public Administration degree in Harvard, that's a graduate-level degree in being a public official.  She's got a long record of political activism on a variety of humanitarian and environmental causes.  She's clearly educated and well versed in issues not just related to national politics but Kentucky politics.

Compare that to Mitch, whose main credentials before his own political career was having a law degree and being in the US Army Reserve for 6 months during the Vietnam War before he got a medical discharge.

I don't know if Judd could win, but I think they just want her for troll bait. The more attention she gets in the media the harder it'll be for Limbaugh and the derp brigade to keep from calling her a slut or saying she should be raped or something horrible.

To this day they still get pissed off at Sandra Fluke for making them say sexist shiat about her. "Oh come on! How did you expect us NOT to call her a slut? THIS IS ALL OBAMA'S FAULT!"

tnpir: Don't be so certain that Ashley Judd would have no chance of winning. It's entirely possible McConnell is going to get primaried (there have been rumblings) and have to spend a shiat-pot of money to retain the nomination.  And if history is our guide, it's not outside the realm of possibility that McConnell could get primaried and lose to a bat-shiat crazy Angle/O'Donnell/Akin/Mordock teabagger, which with her likely fundraising abilities could put the seat in play.

Granted, it's quite the uphill battle, but it's not impossible.


And even if not, it means McConnell would have to spend all that cash on BOTH a primary (which will be a tough slog as the Tea Party probably gets better numbers than Democrats in KY) and general election battle.

To re-elect the Republican Minority Leader. In a heavily red state. With so many more vulnerable seats to defend. Against a well-known and well-financed (and vocal, and good at the PR game) opponent.
