Ashley Judd suggests puzzling location for campaign headquarters

Ashley Judd suggests puzzling location for campaign headquarters

Alex Pappas

Liberal actress Ashley Judd has a puzzling location in mind for where she’d like to establish a campaign headquarters should she run for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky.

During a keynote speech at the American Counseling Association’s 2013 conference in Cincinnati on Friday, Judd said that she’d use her famous mother’s garage as a campaign headquarters, according to local media reports.

The problem? Her mother, country singer Naomi Judd, lives in Tennessee.

Naomi Judd’s Leipers Fork, Tenn. home was featured on HGTV’s “Celebrities At Home” in June.

A publicist for Judd didn’t return an email from The Daily Caller asking for clarification of her comments.

Her comments draw attention to what could be problematic for her in a Senate race: The Judds are from Kentucky, but live in Tennessee today. If Ashley Judd were to enter the race to take on Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell, she’d have to re-establish her residency in the Bluegrass State.

Local affiliate Fox 19 reported that Judd hinted that she’s gearing up for a run.

“In her speech, Judd made reference to Mitch McConnell’s campaign budget by stating that when she started in counseling she didn’t like to be criticized ‘which is ironic because she’s about the get $40 million worth of it,’” the outlet reported.

“She also talked about how supportive her family is being and that her mom, country legend Naomi Judd can’t wait to turn her garage into a campaign headquarters.”

She’s a typical Hollyweird dumbass. Unfortunately, I think the LIVs (low info voters) will put her into office. Lord help us.

McConnell had better prepare for the impact of low-information voters.

Luckily for him, Kentucky only has 50% of the ethnic Democrats that Tennessee has.

KY may be laughed at as hillbillies in the rest of the nation, but they’re not LIVs. Do you remember that they put Rand Paul into office?

I never referred to KY citizens as hillbillies. But I’ve cannot ignore the amount of LIVs in our nation as well as the huge amount of voter fraud. Both elements gave us another 4 more years of Obummer as well as half (or more) of the Democrat retards currently “serving” in Congress.

Well, to be honest, with her income from The Judds music, her garage probably isn’t as typical as ours.

I wonder if it would be rude of me to explain the concept of supportive undergarments to Ms. Judd?

So she divorces her husband and decides she wants to screw the whole country?

Her parents were divorced when she was four.

From Wikipedia:

In December 1999, Judd became engaged to Scottish racing driver Dario Franchitti, who was driving in the Champ Car World Series. Since the demise of the Champ Car World Series, Franchitti has raced in IndyCar and NASCAR. The couple married in December 2001 at Skibo Castle, near Dornoch, Scotland. They have no children, with Judd telling the Sunday Mail, "It's unconscionable to breed, with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries".

On January 29, 2013, Judd and Franchitti announced that they had mutually decided to end their marriage.

Ashley Judd was born in my hometown of Granada Hills, California — a suburb of Los Angeles. That’s where she should set up her headquarters if she wants her Hollywood friends to participate, and frankly she needs to be honest with the people of Kentucky as to where she is from and what she is all about.

Agreed. It was better when she didn’t talk, and just took her top off.

Somebody I know did some painting at Momma Judd’s house, several years ago.

He had nothing but praise for mommam Judd, as whenever she came around, she would offer the painters water and generally was ‘nice’.

He had no such praise for daughter Judd, as she was too snooty, whenever she dropped by.

I never talked politics with this guy, but I’m pretty sure he votes Democrat.

I don’t like McConnell, but I despise these hollyweird types who think they know everything when all they do for a living is read what someone else wrote for them to say. You know she is a liberal rat and hopefully a tea party candidate will offer the voters some other alternative.

If McConnell gets primaried out, PLEASE nominate somebody who is savvy enough to withstand the inevitable MSM onslaught.

These candidates really need to go to some type of boot camp run by conservative media types.

Judd said that she’d use her famous mother’s garage as a campaign headquarters, according to local media reports. The problem? Her mother, country singer Naomi Judd, lives in Tennessee.
Hey she may not have said this just because she's stupid, she may also have been high. She's running as a Democrat, after all.

Liberalism destroys.

"And there is nothing wastes so rapidly as liberality, for even whilst you exercise it you lose the power to do so, and so become either poor or despised, or else, in avoiding poverty, rapacious and hated. And a prince should guard himself, above all things, against being despised and hated; and liberality leads you to both. Therefore it is wiser to have a reputation for meanness which brings reproach without hatred, than to be compelled through seeking a reputation for liberality to incur a name for rapacity which begets reproach with hatred."

-Niccollo Machiavelli, The Prince
