Ashley Judd: "Obama's Kentucky Candidate" Slammed By Mitch McConnell in New Ad

by at .  Updated at . Comments

U.S. Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is clearly worried about running for reelection in 2014 against actress / Democratic activist Ashley Judd.

He's posted ANOTHER ad attacking her and she's not even running yet!

McConnell's ad goes after Judd and three other possible Democratic challengers pretty hard, labeling them collectively “Obama’s Kentucky Candidate.”

The premise is that Obama is holding some sort of town hall meeting to pick Sen. McConnell’s opponent, and he goes from one person to the next.

The video editing is clever and the result is humorous, no doubt.

First up is Ed Marksberry, a former congressional candidate, then former U.S. Ambassador to Sweden Matthew Barzun, followed by Ashley Judd.

Then President Obama calls on “the young lady with the pink, white blouse right there.... Wait until the microphone comes up introduce yourself.”

Next thing you know, there’s Judd at the podium at last year’s Democratic convention, saying, “From the Volunteer State, I proudly stand to nominate ... “

“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” goes Obama in the reaction shot, cut to make it appear as if he disapproves of the fact that she's actually a resident of Tennessee.

The 44-year-old was a 2012 Democratic National Convention delegate from the Volunteer State, not from Kentucky, where she was born and raised.

The ad goes on to make it abundantly clear that possible Senate candidate Ashley Judd is not a Kentucky resident and is close with Barack Obama.

Kentucky went big for Mitt Romney last fall, so it's not a bad strategy ... but it begs the question: Why is McConnell running this ad so early, if at all?

Why did he run the previous ad attacking her alone, when she hasn't even said if she's running in an election that takes place 21 months from now?

Well, only 17 percent of Bluegrass State voters said they would be sure to support McConnell - the GOP's highest-ranking U.S. Senator - in 2014.

Even in a conservative state, he is LITERALLY the least popular member of the entire Senate, a walking embodiment of partisan gridlock and obstruction.

It’s possible that leaves an opening for Judd. Al Cross, associate professor of journalism at the University of Kentucky and political columnist, writes:

“It’s safe to say that if she ran, she could put in big money, raise a lot more and perhaps put McConnell under unprecedented scrutiny at a time when he’s not all that popular."

In short, expect more ads like this ... for the next two years.

JUDD IS GETTING TOO OLD TO DO DESCENT FILMS. HER TV SERIES, WHERE SHE PLAYED A FORMER CIA AGENT, MUST HAVE BEEN VERY HARD ON HER, PHYSIALLY. THE ONLY OTHER THING, THIS LEFT WING HOLLYWOODITE CAN DO FOR ATTENTION, IS RUN FOR OFFICE, AND KISS THE WORTHLESS BUTT OF THE OBAMA POS.

It's obvious that Judd is a Democrat pursuing an office under the assumption she knows she could never win unless she changed parties. Has her political affiliations changed or her idiology? Not at all. In reality she is an infiltrator, both as a state resident and the Republican Party. She doesn't have any conservative or constitutional doctrines inherent in being a Republican as her history demonstrates. The Party should deny her access to running for office as a Republican straight up. She's also shown he willingness to use sympathy and the horrors of child rape to get publicity as Democrats are known to do b claiming to be a victim herself, but yet,aside from her testimony on this(the rest of the family denied it and

Oops..wrong button *shruggs* CONTINUED: Judd has become estranged from her family because of her molestation claims. Undoubtedly she will use that in a "poor poor me" campaign as well. Judd's numerous nude scenes in her mediocre movies and mediocre acting ability/career should be enough to be discredit her as a Republican. Need I remind you all of what a big deal was made of an Idaho politician who allegedly played footsie in the men's room with a stranger being forced to resign? He was Republican. Moral standards deny her credibility as a Republican as do most Hollywood stars are and thus they inevitably become Democrats or Socialists (or both because there's little if anything differential in the two). If we in America have a two party system that is made up of people with the same Democratic Party doctrine then it fails to be a two party system but is so by name alone. That's not America and its not patriotic cause its not American ...its COMMUNISM.

Ashley Judd is more patriotic than Mitch McConnell. 'Ol Mitch s is a Republican who dosn't care about the issues facing average Americans on a daily basis. Anyone who says his main goal in Congress is to insure that a sitting President does not get a second term is not worthy of remaining in the Senate.

Wel, how long would she need to be a resident? She's divorcing her husband, so she just might be buying your hood!
