Actress Ashley Judd for Senate?

Henry Clay. Daniel Webster. Ashley Judd?

Yes, there are actually Democrats in Kentucky so eager to get rid of Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell that they would support putting Judd up as the Democratic Senator for Kentucky.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-3rd District, said: “If you had an Ashley Judd-McConnell race, I think it would be as high profile a race as Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown … the money would pour in here as soon as she entered the race.” 

Former Auditor Crit Luallen said that Judd would be “an attractive candidate.” Some supporters of the idea say such a race could make for the “premier race in the country.”


Although Judd lives in Tennessee, she’s a native Kentuckian and could move back if she were interested. Judd’s political acumen has guided her in her public statements, which include:

On Barack Obama: “I think that he has an incredible devotion to our Constitution.”

On culture:

I believe that the social construction of gender – the cultural beliefs and practices that divide the sexes and institutionalize and normalize the unequal treatment of girls and women, privilege the interests of boys and men, and, most nefariously, incessantly sexualize girls and women – is the root cause of poverty and suffering around the world.

And she’s a fanatical supporter of abortion. Remember when she viciously mocked Rick Santorum?

None of this matters to the Democrats. She’s the kind of leftist celebrity that will rubber-stamp any piece of liberal legislation coming down the pike, which makes her the kind of mindless robot that fits perfectly into the scheme to achieve their socialist dreams.
