Skip to comments.Ashley Judd target of GOP preemptive strike

Shes not even a candidate yet.
But the GOP opposition research machine is already in full froth over what it views as perhaps the juiciest 2014 target: Ashley Judd, who is exploring a challenge to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
Republicans are homing in with glee on the actress and activist, picking apart her views and statements and compiling a thick compendium of speeches, writings and tweets. What they found: Judd may not have a legislative record, but she has left quite a paper trail.
This early opposition research effort seems as much about scaring Democrats nationally about a Judd candidacy as informing Kentuckians before Judd even decides to make the race.
Ms. Judd has a bit of a habit of making bizarre comments and observations that will put Democratic officials and candidates across the country in uncomfortable positions, said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. As for Kentucky, well lets just say that Ms. Judds comments are outlandish for Hollywood, never mind Covington.
The latest of Judds unorthodox views to rise to the surface courtesy of the GOP is a 2006 statement about why she doesnt have children which Republicans say will not sit well in Kentucky. Its unconscionable to breed, with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries, Judd said. Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.), who has been advising Judd, said that the actress was speaking for herself, and added that people in Kentucky understand the word breeding.
In a disjointed talk at George Washington University Friday, Judd, 44, may have given her opponents more fodder by referencing U2 rocker Bono, her dog being on a hunger strike and her extravagant travels. We winter in Scotland. Were smart like that, she told students.

I'm trying to figure out how that is supposed to be a defense...maybe I shouldn't waste the energy.
F U Beach. And everyone who thinks liek you. Destroying your abilty to win an election is elemental. We are in a war for the future of Freedom on the North American continent. Expect no quarter given. If you don't like the heat, beach, get the F our of the kitchen.
You shall not be missed you socialist POS.
Its unconscionable to breed”
Always liked Ashly Judd (especially since she was from Kentucky - as I am) but when she becomes a leftist politician she has passed the actress realm and gone into the dismissed. Bye, bye, once you enter the world of politics you are destined to lose at least half of your supporters.
Too bad...you used to be known for your acting...
Projection. The DNCmedia is already in "hit mode" trying to tear down ANY contenders for the 2016 GOP nomination.
Please, please....let her speak her mind. The best thing to do is act scared of her. Let them nominate her. She’s a perfect candidate. Leave her alone. Democrats everywhere need to support her. This woman will win the general election by a landslide. Send her money.
When country signers veer left their fan base leaves um.
It’s her sister and mama that sing. Ashley just shows off her juggs.
Any sailors out there that thought wintering in Holy Loch, Scotland was smart?
“She’s not even a candidate yet.”
Yah, everything you said plus when have the Democrats
ever waited for a formal declaration of candidacy before
calling in the storm troops to start ripping apart GOP
Isn’t this the Liberal MO? Destroy the opposition before it becomes too powerful? Since the Liberals have been doing this for a long time, I glad to see the Republicans finally get a clue!
There's some good old fashioned
Kentucky Tennessee California Red Chinese values from Comrade Ashley.
A shame she won't be having any beautiful daughters, although with the brainwashing she'd instill perhaps that's all for the best./strike
I doubt the naked pics of her will help in Kentucky.
It’s interesting to note Ashley was not born in Kentucky, but in Granada Hills, California. A famous tv show was set in Granada Hills, which was better known as, yup, Knots Landing. Unlike her mama and sister, she has no regional Southern accent. Everything in her attitude and presence is the all-arrogant California White leftist.
I wonder where Naomi went wrong raising her.
Maybe it has something to do with this
Ashley was born as Ashley Tyler Ciminella in Granada Hills, California. She is the daughter of Naomi Judd, a country music singer and motivational speaker, and Michael Charles Ciminella, a marketing analyst for the horseracing industry
She's a popular figure but far too LIBERAL for most Kentucky voters.
You will see... All the media has to do is present Ms, Dudd as a “victim” of the “Southern White Good ‘Ol Boys KKKlub” and it will get the moron women/minorities/eunuchs/undecideds to vote for her like good humanoids.
And if that don’t work, they own the voting machines.
Ashley just shows off her juggs.
Indeed, and my initial thought with her politics in mind was what a waste/waist. I suppose with that little spelling error I could have added no pun intended.
