Could you think of all the unending headline possibilities if Kentucky had her and RAND PAUL as its Senators?  But alas, its not meant to be.

Anyone that thought Ashely Judd would be a serious and effective candidate for the US Senate knows zero about politics.
 
2013-03-27 08:21:29 PM
Well with her out of the way, I hereby nominate Drew to run as a member of the Fark Party.  No seriously, he'd be a far more effective candidate against McConnell than Ashley Judd would've been.

WTF Indeed: Anyone that thought Ashely Judd would be a serious and effective candidate for the US Senate in Kentucky knows zero about politics.


FTFY. In a bluer state, she wouldn't be any worse than a lot of the Senators we already have.  But whoever was telling her she had a chance in Kentucky, I'm glad she started listening to someone else.

This.

McConnell may indeed be vulnerable, but he would have beaten her handily.

Hmm, I get the impression that Drew is more of a beer drinker than a moonshine drinker. This might play well in Louisville or Lexington but not as much in the coal mining regions of the state.

Opponents hit at her with a "carpetbagger" label.  Moving to Kentucky to run, while on tape claiming other places as "home."  And that was the first salvo.  Then there was the prospect of dealing with her past movie roles, including nudity.  Her opponent wouldn't dare bring it up, but lots of minions would do it for him.

I guess looking at the big picture, she decided to bail.

I would've kicked in to the election fund, just to see the ads.

The fact that she was getting bashed so early was proof to me they were terrified of her, a sign that she was a very significant threat.  But I guess they were nasty enough to scare her off, which was of course the point.

Maybe some higher ups in the Democratic fund-raising machine finally had the "Come to Jesus" speech with her?

Because she's an actress, because she's a woman, because she's a democrat or because she's in Kentucky?  Any combination of the previous will suffice as an answer, I'm just curious about your opinion.
 
2013-03-27 11:02:43 PM
The obvious way to get a Democrat elected in Kentucky is to get McConnell primaried by a derp candidate for not being potato enough and then ask the derp candidate what they think about rape.

Then again we are talking about Kentucky.

Aww fark it. Nuke the whole goddamn state.

I would make out with her vagina
 
2013-03-27 11:52:11 PM

The LULZ of watching this woman self destruct on the national stage would have been epic.

/seriously, saw her once give a talk about some third world awareness BS in DC once
//she's clearly not all there

Her problem is Kentucky.  It's a red state and you could run against the worst person in the world and they would still win if it was a republican.

My money is on Bill Clinton being the one who talked her out of running.

FTFA:While she partly grew up in the state and graduated from University of Kentucky, Judd has lived elsewhere as an adult, including California and Scotland. She was married to Scottish race car driver Dario Franchitti, but they announced they were getting a divorce earlier this year.

What's his tartan?  Spaghetti and meatballs?

Knowing Kentucky, they'd think that means she was gay 50% of the time.

Wow, they were really shiatting bricks about this huh? Hadn't even decided to run and they were already going with "She's not Real Kentucky" attack ads?

Mental illness is rampant here. I'm sure people here would know what bipolar means unless you think everyone in Kentucky is some kind of wacky caricature?

The ads were hilariously terrible and annoying. I like the fact that they spent who knows how much money to discredit a woman that isn't even running.

Lulvul.

And Bowling Green for a summer.

And some spec of a town on the Ohio river that smelled like cats for a winter .

I've lived in Kentucky.  Everyone there is a caricature.

Not always wacky, though.


I used to work with a guy from Kentucky in a warehouse, and he asked me if I pronounced the capital "Lou-ville" or "Lou-ee-ville."  I told him I pronounced it Frankfurt, and he beat the shiat out of me.

He was a wacky AND scary caricature.

"After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities & energy at this time need to be focused on my family," Judd wrote on Twitter.

"Focus on my family" - the most overused and obviously bullshiat excuse currently in use by politicians.  Why does anyone use it?  No one's taken it seriously for years.

Since horse racing seems to be a big part of Kentucky, perhaps they'll nominate the Derby winner to represent them.

Unless she's worried that her family will be physically assaulted, it's a worn out and trite phrase.

About 10 miles south or 10 miles east of Lexington will get you all the weird you could ever want.

Come to think of it...10 miles north of Lexington is not any better.

Think of Kentucky as a sea of weird with islands in Louisville, Lexington and the Corvette plant in Bowling Green.
