Sunday Morning on Chris Mathews' show, Howard Fineman mentioned that there was a rumor Kentucky might be trying to recruit Ashley Judd to run against Mitch McConnell in 2014. Since then, I've Googled her name a few times and found several articles mentioning this rumor. Here is a link to one of them. I posted a link to another article saying about the same thing on my facebook page. Only got one comment so far. My Fox brainwashed niece commented that Ashley Judd is against coal mining.
With a little more Googling, I found that she is against mountain top removal and that proponents of mountain top removal feature a topless picture of her in a poster. The poster says something like, "She removes her top, why can't we?"
Does anyone know if there is any truth to this rumor? And what might her chances in KY be? If my facebook friends, made up mostly of family and neighbors, are any guide, I would have to say she'd have an uphill climb with rural whites. Here is an example of the astute wisdom displayed on my facebook page the morning after the election. One of my own kinfolks said Obama couldn't have won because the map was more red than blue. I considered pointing out to him that votes are by people rather than real estate, but thought better of it. He's something of a skinhead radical and is on medication, ostensibly for anger issues related to his two deployments to Iraq.
Anyway, might it be possible to ditch Mitch? And could Ashley Judd be the person to do it?
