Ashley Judd Bails on Kentucky Senate Race
Newsmax ^

Posted on 03/28/2013 10:55:03 AM PDT by dead

Actress Ashley Judd's next role will not be as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky.

Judd said on Wednesday she has decided not to run in 2014 to try to unseat Republican Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, after considering such a candidacy for months.

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

Judd and her husband, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti, announced in January that they had decided to end their 11-year marriage.

Judd, 44, considers Kentucky her home state but actually lives in neighboring Tennessee. She would have had to move to Kentucky in order to qualify as a candidate...

As Levin said yesterday, Rove was stupid to chase her out so early

She would have beaten McConnell like a rented mule. All his advantages would have been disadvantages.

Do you have to say which state you reside in when you file for divorce. That might have been interesting if they filed in TN, said lived in TN, then ran for office in Kentucky.

I am surprised. Her sister is currently on dancing with the stars, and I thought Ashley would try to steal the spotlight.

Of course both names and addresses must appear on divorce documents, which are typically issued by only one state.

Scary (photoshopped) picture, but it appears our li’l Ashley is scarier in reality. She must be a real treat to interact with daily.

No, she's preparing to audition for the title role in the ET remake.

I’m surprised she turned out to be such a goof. I heard her speak once about choosing life for her daughter, Winona, when she was an unmarried teen and it was very touching.

I assume you're talking about Winona and Ashley's mom, Naomi.

They have not filed yet!

They married in Scotland, so they probably could divorce there.

But I still wonder if this address thing played a role in her withdrawal. Or maybe she just didn’t want to stress out her ‘companion animal’.

‘...she would have beaten McConnell...’

sadly, these days, seems any liberal ‘celebrity’ can beat any Republican. Glad she opted out.

Kentucky has a state income tax rate of 6% on income over $75,000. Tennessee only taxes income from interest and dividends. I think that explains why she lives in Tennessee.

Well, we ARE talking about Kentucky here, not Minnesota. She'd have been a pain in the a** for awhile, but McConnell (NOT a fan of his, BTW) would've defeated her, IMO.

In answer to both - I don't have any idea. Sure looks like the evil inside is surfacing, though.

“Why are her breasts hanging down to her stomach?”

Because, darling... she is 44 years old and not wearing a bra. Notice the “Feminist” t-shirt. Any woman after age 35 will tell you that a good support bra is a girl’s best friend.

Republicans here were salivating over the prospect of her being his opponent which is why the Democrats essentially chased her out themselves - they were fearful her huge loss would damage their down ticket races as well. With videos her pledging to do “whatever Obama wants”, appearing in videos for NARAL lamenting the lack of abortion clinics, written articles where she condemns people having children, fathers giving away daughters at weddings, etc. she would not have gotten anywhere fast.

She sure as hell doesn’t look skinny now. She’s a pudged out middle-aged spread out hag with a bad attitude and crazy, to boot.

She had some short-lived attempt at a career resurrection on TV recently, but her fat ass didn’t translate into viewership. Definitely has lost any sex appeal she ever had....

Robert Kennedy set the precedent for this and no one challenged it.

The old Bra burning 60s feminist mentality One example of that would be the sagging fried egg phenomenon

I suppose she has quite a crop of armpit hair too.

“... sagging fried egg...”

That is hysterical! Reminds me of the joke, “When I married my wife, she had the cutest, little rosebud on her left breast. Now it’s a long stemmed tulip”.

Did you read about her rant on twitter concerning a material mined in Africa for use in IPhones? Hilarious hypocrisy - she was so vulgar about how anyone using and Iphone/Ipad/Ipod was complicit in the virtual raping of the women in the area but she was posting from..... HER IPHONE!

When confronted she blasted back that she was such a big deal moviestar that the star-struck people in a Baton Rouge store GAVE her the Iphone so she uses it. She also uses her Ipad and her Ipod...because, you know, as long as she is bitching about the little people she isn't guilty.

Touche’.

She being a University of Kentucky graduate and a big time fan of the basketball team, it was informative to see how BB fans reacted to her possible Senate run on the basketball sports chat boards. She was savaged and especially so by many self-described Democrats. When Judd announced she was pulling for Louisville to win the NCAA it put a nail into her election coffin. Judd also has pilloried the coal industry and that doesn’t play well many who derive their incomes from coal. It will be interesting to see how she is received next season the first time she deigns to appear at Rupp Arena.

That would be a one of the many, many, too darn many to count fans that flocked to her last top billed film.

In 2011, Judd co-starred with Patrick Dempsey in the film Flypaper. It grossed only $1,100 total in its theatrical release....

It coulda happened the way she said....yeah..snort!

Translation: "After meeting with DemonRat election consultants, and listening to focus groups react to my radical femi-nazi views, I realize that I am utterly unelectable, and would become the DemonRat's Todd Akin."

Too bad. I would have loved for her to run.

Also, what "family" is she referring to? Didn't she decide not to "breed"?

He may end up looking like that anyway as it’s now speculated that the current Kentucky Secretary of State, Alison Grimes, may challenge McConnell. She is just as attractive as Judd and 100 times smarter than Judd. I’ll hold my nose and vote for McConnell, but I’m just saying, he’s going to have a difficult time still.
