Future Kentucky Senator Ashley Judd responds to Karl Rove ad attacking her. WTF, isn't it still only 2013?

Courtesy of the Washington Post: 

In a new Web ad, Karl Rove-affiliated American Crossroads dings the actress with soundbites from her own speeches and interviews unlikely to play well in conservative Kentucky: One where she vows “I will go wherever the president wants me to go,” another where she proclaims herself “a radical”; she also sings the praises of Obamacare. 

But possibly most damning? The clip where the possible Mitch McConnell challenger tells an audience: “It just clicked: Tennessee is home.” 

Indeed, the Kentucky native and UK grad’s primary residence is currently near Nashville. The quote comes from a speech she gave to the Tennessee delegation at the Democratic National Convention in September, where she explained at greater length her family roots and growing up on both sides of the border. 

In an emailed statement, a publicist for Judd responded: “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet.” 

An American Crossroads rep told us they’re spending $10,000 to place the video via Web advertising.

Oh hell now Rove and his cronies are doing Judd's pre-election advertising for her! How accidentally helpful of them.

As I have explained before this possible matchup between Ashley Judd and the turtle-like Mitch McConnell may turn out to be my FAVORITE political face off in 2014.

And I have to say that the fact that Karl Rove and McConell are concerned enough about it to shoot their wad THIS early tells me that they are scared spitless about the possibility of watching Judd in a political debate with McConnell.

I think I will buy some shares in Orville Redenbacher this morning.


  1. I just sent KarlRove a tweet thanking him
    for advertizing for AshlyJudd! I also told him
    how well that worked for stoopid Sarah Palin and the
    the wolves!

    They just can't stop themselves from throwing money at Karl Rove. Did any of them even make it through high school? Because you just KNOW that they all got where they got riding on the coat-tails of stage mothers and really good Administrative Assistants.

    If Ashley Judd wants the backing of the Grand Old Party then maybe Ashley Judd should flaunt her energy expertise, wear her water bra, lick her lips while winking at the old white men?

    It worked to get a losing beauty pageant contestant to be one old man's heartbeat away the Republican Party vice president pick.

      The difference in that analogy is one is a smart hottie and the other was a pitbull....albeit wearing lipstick, but at the end of the day, a pitbull is still a dog.

    2. The only problem with that plan is that Ashley Judd has a functioning brain, unlike the Wasilla Wendigo.

    They are scared shitless of a bright beautiful woman who would never give those assholes the time of day.

    I can't wait! Ashley vs Mitch? And seeing Rove so paranoid is just icing on the cake!

    Orville Redenbacher it is! Well Played, Ms, Judd!!

    Love the idea that Mitch and Karl are afraid of her!!! I hope she runs and knocks the shit out of the 'turtle' faced, ugly obstructionist. It will be a fun race to watch and the Republicans will throw lotsa money behind Mitch and he'll lose!!!! It's been said he is NOT popular in Kentucky - guess he is from Louisville.

    Don't forget that Mitch is the one that said they'd stop President Obama from serving a second term. Yea, that worked you jerk!

    I've heard Ashley Judd speak on various occasions and she is one smart cookie....well educated, well spoken, a popular actress and from a talented family.

    She could handle Mitch easily and I so hope she runs!

  8. I hope Ashley plays coy... Imagine the force behind her with The Judds being so beloved by country music fans. I keep telling you guys, never, ever piss off a woman!

    Gawd, the horror. Smart as a whip and as beautiful as Ava Gardner, this woman would eat that old fuck McConnell like a bagel. Please run, Ms. Judd. The world needs comedy like this as surely as it needs the moon and the stars.

    Okay, I'm convinced.
    Judd for Senate!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
