Ashley Judd Finds the Idea of Being a Senator "Intriguing"
Will we be addressing Ashley Judd as "Senator" one day? Of course not, stupid. But let's let her play this fun little game where she thinks she's way more important than she actually is. From the Chicago Sun Times:
A Judd candidacy seems to be taking some traction in the actress' native Kentucky, where the Louisville Courier-Journal reports a number of key Democrats are warm to the idea of her challenging GOP majority leader Mitch McConnell for re-election in 2014 -- clearly an ambitious undertaking, especially in Kentucky, long a reliably "red" state. Judd long has been active in Democratic and liberal causes and served as a Democratic National Convention delegate this past summer -- though from neighboring Tennessee.
She has told Hollywood pals that the idea is intriguing, and at a September forum about women in politics, sponsored by EMILY's List and Marie Claire magazine, the actress said, "I do receive a lot of encouragement to run ... and my sincere desire is to be useful. I want to serve ... and I may be doing that to the best of my capacity ... in the space I'm already operating in. Or, it may be time to look at possibly running for office."
Oh great, just what the Senate needs, another uninformed dope as a member. Look, nothing against Ashley, but aren't there better things she can do with her retirement than sink the country further into a depression? Ashley's political views fall in line with every douchebag Hollywood liberal's worldview -- and you know what that means, right? It means higher gas prices and less freedom for me. I really don't care if the world burns -- I just want to hop into my Hummer (old school H1 cool, not new school H2 poser), drive out to the forest, and go hunting for endangered species like the good ol' days. Is that too much to ask for?
