Ashley Judd’s potential run against McConnell scares the hell out of Republicans

Ashley Judd: Scaring Republicans

Actress and Democratic activist Ashley Judd says she is considering a run against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky and that thought alone is sending reactionary Republicans into convulsions.

The GOP attack machine is in full gear, denouncing Judd as a flake with outlandish views and doing anything they can to defend McConnell, a lackluster Senate leader with a history of racism and his own off-the-wall comments.

The campaign, spearheaded by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and funded by right-wing fatcats, showcases the length the party will go to tar and feather anyone who thinks of taking on one of their own.

“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,” NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring tells Politico.  “As for Kentucky, well let’s just say that Ms. Judd’s comments are outlandish for Hollywood for Hollywood, never mind Covington (a town in Kentucky).”

Dayspring, of course, ignores equally outlandish comments by McConnell, such as claims the current President is ignoring problems of the country while planning a future as a professional golfer.

“The Republicans are running so scared that they see anyone as enough of a threat to unleash the hounds,” political consultant Ann Carter tells Capitol Hill Blue. “Let’s remember that Kentucky is the state that gave us Rand Paul and McConnell did everything he could to stop him, so anything can happen.”

Will Judd run?  Some Democrats think so.  Should she? Yes, they say, she should.

    Senate Majority Leader needs to leave his position in Congress. I’ve never heard of Ms Judd but I’ve heard enough about McConnell to last a life time.

    There is something very evil about these Republicans who turned so sour against President Obama and until the GOP starts all over and redesigns their agenda, they should simply drop out of politics.

    Over the last 50 years,politics took on a sense of humor that was shaken off thanks to men like McConnell and the Tea Party. The GOP became the heart and soul of all individual Americans. Actions were no longer choices and were taken as mandates.
