screenshot from American Crossroads internet video against potential senate candidate Ashley Judd
Take that, Ashley Judd!
Karl Rove is getting plastered by the Republican base for his Super PAC's new supposed commitment to finding non-crazy Republicans to back. In response, the group has promised that by "not supporting crazy people," they mean they still will support crazy people like Rep. Steve King, just not, you know, people even crazier than that, and have quickly come out with a new hit ad on potential Democratic candidate Ashley Judd. Judd might run against Mitch McConnell for McConnell's senate spot.

Given (1) that Ashley Judd isn't actually running for anything, at least not yet, and (2) the ad existing only as an internet thing for Karl Rove to talk about (though it ends with a prominent donation ask, of course), the effort doesn't seem to be too serious. It seems to be primarily a way for Rove to change the subject and make nice-nice with the Republicans who have been circling his building with torches and pitchforks.

Anyway, Rove is now promising more Judd-bashing—I guess he figures targeting people who aren't actually even running for something yet is probably one of the safer things he can do, given that all his other announcements lately have landed butter-side-down—so I guess that will be a thing.

“We are making fun of her,” Rove said point-blankly on Fox News. “She is way far out on the left wing of the Democratic Party, which is not very far out left in Kentucky.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      rove has used it successfully many times but it is hardly noticed by the left because it happens on the radio.

      from supreme court possibilities that would be "too liberal/radical" for amurka to the van joneses and elizabeth warrens and susan rices that withdraw or are withdrawn because the lies and rumors get blasted so long and loud from the 1000 plus radio stations without a peep of response from the left, until it's too late. and it happens on the local level too. and they become well known and "true", and acceptable to be repeated on TV and joked about on the sunday shows through sheer unchallenged repetition.

      judd will be getting blasted by local and national radio blowhards regularly until her relatives and friends start getting hassled and she feels that pressure.

      all rove had to do was pass the names and some lies and rumors to team limbaugh and even specifically to the local blowhards and it goes from there. most of the intimidation toward judd will happen on kentucky RW radio unnoticed by the dems who would like to see her run, and who are encouraging her and who will be pledging to get her back.

      and 4 of those stations are limbaugh stations that piggyback on the athletics of the U of Kentucky and Louisville.

          It's about stupid, but, then again, it's Karl Rove, who figures that Kentuckyans will embrace out-of-staters making fun of home town girls and families that have made it big and kept coming back home to support their communities. The man is a genius. Maybe he can come along and run ads against Michael Stipe in Georgia, next, or Dolly Parton in Tennessee.

              this really is a pretty smart move by Rove to generate free nationwide coverage and raise a helluvba lot more $ than the costs of the ad.

              BTW, as a KY guy, I can assure you that Ashley Judd will NOT run for Senate.  This is a Hollywood PR thing.  Ashley is in the middle of a dissolution of marriage.  She was in DC for inaug, but acted like a movie star, not a candidate, and didn't attend the KDP reception.  Which would have been what a real candidate would do.

              Judd's association with Kentucky stops at the Derby and UK basketball.

              Just so you know, Kentucky Dems control the governor's office and all constitutional offices but one.  The state senate is R, but the house is D, as it has been for some time.

              Congress, however, is a different story.  Both Senators are R and 5 of 6 Members of Congress are GOPers, and bad ones.  If the national Dems would reach out to Kentucky, it could make some difference imo.  But it will take time.

    It does occur to me that after spending $100 million plus on the last election and receiving zero return for the effort, maybe Rove is just out of money and this is his way of soliciting more $ and whipping up more suckers (donors) to kick money into his leaky coffers.

    over the years. talk radio does most of the work while the left and dems who would claim to get her back will have no idea what their local RW radio stations are doing to her.

    works great with admin job nominees where the political liability gets too high and the nominee or the admin decides its no worth the fight to beat back a bunch of well established lies and rumors, like with susan rice, eliz warren, van jones, and on and on.

    if she's a threat to them the Kentucky talk radio blowhards will get regular anti  Judd topic suggestions from those think tanks. like with Eliz Warren and other prominent races the national blowhards will also attack her, which also triggers the local wannabes.

    university of kentucky (3) and louisville (1) will be broadcasting sports on 4 limbaugh stations and probably a few more of those RW radio stations that will be trashing Judd relentlessly until she declares she won't run.

    Probably because she'll raise gobs of money, and McConnell thought he'd have a 10-1 money advantage against any challenger.  

    Also GOP always seem to try and recruit celebrities - Gary Senise was rumored to be recruited at one point to run for President recently afterall.  They also loved the idea of Clint Eastwood talking to a chair.  And GOP attacked 2008 Obama as a "celebrity", trying to change a positive of getting huge crowds and excitement into a negative.

    Judd is much smarter than folks will initially assume which would be a big boost for her, and she's charismatic as hell - standing next to McConnell would make ol Mitch look even more bland and boring than usual.  Also having the Senate Majority Leader having to lower himself to debate a "Hollywood Actress" probably pisses off McConnell as well - would he be able to hide his contempt?

    McConnell wants a sitting Kentucky Pol to challenge him, because he knows he can win in a off-the-national-radar race with his gobs of money and the McConnell Machine in Kentucky. Hell that's why no pol is stepping up to challenge him - because he'll crush their careers if they dare try.  Judd has nothing to lose running, she can raise tens of millions from her Hollywood friends and beat McConnell badly on style points.  

    Her embrace of Pres Obama will hurt her some, but Obama has ran his last campaign/election - so the white hot hate some have for him might mellow a bit.  Also McConnell's complete obstruction could hurt him more because folks in 2014 will start thinking about the next President in 2016 more than Pres Obama - and McConnell's obstruction could be framed as setting a terrible precedent where the opposition party makes their sole goal to make the new President a one-term President rather than trying to work with them and find common ground for the good of the country.  Make the election a referendum on the GOP obstruction and have Judd state that no matter who was elected President in 2016, that she'd try to work with them and find common ground on issues because that is really what Kentucky and America wants.

He's lucky he can find any donors at this point and if this doesn't pan out, he may be left explaining to them why he used their money to go after an actress. He's basically putting all his eggs in one basket. McConnel is going to have a hard enough time explaining away his "one term" statement.

This is the GOP's biggest problem, they won't reach out beyond their base. Especially Rove.
