Skip to comments.Actress to Run for Senate
Posted on 03/10/2013 1:17:52 PM PDT by John Semmens
Hollywood cutie Ashley Judd is preparing to run for the Kentucky senate seat currently held by Mitch McConnell (R). The 44 year-old actress has no prior political experience, but exudes confidence shell win.
Im pretty sure Ill have the edge in the swimsuit and evening gown portions of the competition, Judd bragged. Talent-wise, Im prepping by taking singing lessons from my Mom. The one iffy part Im facing is the poise question. There are so many worthy causes Id like to promote during my reign that itll be hard to pick one.
Judd speculated that McConnells ugliness is a definite plus for me. Hes old and kind of lumpy with no sex appeal. While I may be a bit past my prime for Hollywood at 44, McConnells way past his sell by date.
Whether Judds glamor and sex-appeal will be able to overcome the ill-will sparked her previous campaign to replace coal-fired power-generation with the free distribution of government-subsidized D-cell batteries remains to be seen. Coal mining is a major industry in Kentucky.

Kentucky ain’t Minnesota, though.
Her only shot is if McConnell gets primaried out by someone who pees his pants in the campaign like Murdoch did here in Indiana.
Take no chances. Strike hard and immediately. Take her out of the race now. Don’t give her a chance to even have a distant chance. I speak from the land of Hillary and her carpet bag. The NY RNC underestimated her and she got elected. The same could happen in Kentucky if they aren’t careful.
For that reason, I doubt there will be any primary challengers to Mitch, which is a shame.
If the world was still rational, I'd say that would end Judd's campaign. Now I'm not so sure anymore.
Anyone remember this woman? Her name is Ilona Staller, better known as "Cicciolina".
At the very least, the Tea Party needs to send these challenger candidates to some kind of boot camp so they are not trapped by Journ-0-lists.
Well, last I checked the GOP elite picked candidates have not fared much better. Meg Whitman, David Dewhurst, Linda McMahon, to mention a few.
Oh yeah. Charlie Crist too.
But those names weren’t incumbents.
I see that as a big difference.
Didn’t this thing run for the Italian congress?
You’re correct. Mitch has to be “on it” and hammer her NOW, before she gets traction.
Yes she did, AND WON despite 1)Having no experience as a legislator, and 2)Being exposed as a porn actress.
She was a complete disaster in the Italian Parliament (During the Iraq war her idea of diplomacy was to offer to sleep with Saddam in exchange for peace in the region). She was voted out in the next election, and now spends her time as a political activist. Her favorite causes? Same-sex marriage and legal prostitution.
I know Italy is not the USA, but it scares me to think that someone can get elected with no qualifications other than a pretty face and a smooth tongue. That would never happen here, would it?
The Senate should not become a retirement home for actors.
Kentuckians can’t be this stupid. Jim Bowie, Alamo hero, would be rolling over in his grave.
Jay Leno said, “Politics is just show business for ugly people”.
So would Henry Clay.
She’s another anti-gun wombat, with Obama’s minions fronting her money!
You will have to explain that to me. Why is a mans vote any different than a women’s? Why should a man have liberties a women shouldn’t?
You go Ashbin Dudd!
I did notice the questions were not answered. Would you like to try again?
