Today, like a good little political blogger, I was watching the Sunday shows and happened to see this fascinating exchange on Chris Matthews.
Whoa, did Howard Fineman just say what I thought he said?
That Ashley Judd might be taking on Mitch "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president" McConnell for his Senate seat?
Oh PLEASE make this be true!
If this happens it will no doubt be my favorite political race to watch in 2014. By far!
You remember Ashley Judd don't you?
Or perhaps you remember her best for being one of the first people publicly added to Sarah Palin's enemies list after going after her in 2009 over the aerial hunting of wolves in Alaska.
Oh that one REALLY got under the Grizzled Mama's skin. As a matter of act she has mentioned it in anger numerous times since.
So yes the idea of Judd, a woman with more talent in her little finger than Sarah Palin has in her entire body, taking on "Little Bitch" McConnell and eventually walking away with his lunch money AND his Senate seat, is my idea of some very serious karmic justice.
And don't think Judd is just a pretty face (Though beautiful would be more like it.) she has the chops to talk policy and speak up for her beliefs as well. Just take a look at her canvassing for Obama last month. (Oh, and did I mention she is a HUGE Obama supporter?)
Yeah, like I said, this would be an extremely entertaining and exciting race to watch. Let's hope we get the opportunity.
