Ashley Judd Won’t Run For Senate

Hollywood hottie Ashley Judd isn’t running for the U.S. Senate in Kentucky after all – although she didn’t rule out a political campaign at some point in the future.

The 44-year-old actress announced her decision via a series of messages on her Twitter page …

“Regretfully, I am currently unable to consider a campaign for the Senate,” she wrote. “I have spoken to so many Kentuckians over these last few months who expressed their desire for a fighter for the people & new leader. While that won’t be me at this time, I will continue to work as hard as I can to ensure the needs of Kentucky families are met by returning this Senate seat to whom it rightfully belongs: the people & their needs, dreams, and great potential. Thanks for even considering me as that person & know how much I love our Commonwealth. Thank you!”

Judd – the daughter of country star Naomi Judd (and half-sister of Wynonna Judd) – had been seriously considering a bid against U.S. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a 71-year-old “Republican in Name Only.” Complicating her aspirations? The fact she’s a dyed-in-the-wool liberal – and Kentucky is a state U.S. President Barack Obama lost by a whopping 23 points.

Also, Judd is currently living in Nashville, Tennessee … which last time we checked wasn’t in the Bluegrass State.

Democrats in Kentucky now turn to Secretary of State Allison Grimes as their likely nominee against McConnell.

Frankly, it doesn’t matter who the Democrats run against McConnell. Unless he’s knocked off from the right, this race is going to be a wash.

“McConnell is a fiscal liberal who sold his soul to Washington, D.C. years ago,” we noted earlier this month.

He deserves to be defeated, but Grimes – like Judd – would be nothing but a rubber stamp for Obama.

For those of you keeping score at home, “Republicans” are defending fourteen U.S. Senate seats next year, while Democrats are defending 21. So far five Democrats and two Republicans have announced they are stepping down. In order to take control of the Senate, Republicans need to pick up six seats.

Of course “Republicans” took control of the U.S. House in 2010 … and you see how well that’s worked out for them.

So good looking! What I really like about short haircuts like hers is that when girls are going down on you, you can see. No need to tie hair back or use rubber bands. Pure sex.

Buckminster Fuller correctly predicted;’By 2000, politics will simply fade away. We will not see any political parties.’

What we have now is a pathetic impersonation of what used to be.People under 50,are usually hopelessly naive,and look at this;Ashley fucking Judd.Bad dream.

Do not, under any circumstances, google Wynona Judd. That woman is the definition of a beast. Wish she’d run for congress and eat all the assholes up there now.
