What do you mean that Judd isnt running?
I actually think think Judd has the chance to make it interesting if played the right way. Assuming McConnell gets out of his primary, voters really like things that are "different" right now. McConnell is the definition of the D.C., if Judd('s political team) could turn what's "different" about her into an anti-establishment narrative, I think there's a chance. On the other side, the republicans are going to try to paint her an establishment creature using the age-old "Hollywood elite" moniker. I don't know, I may be waay off base, but I actually think there's a chance here.
I mean she's not going to run. I would be shocked beyond belief is she does.
Judd can't win. Multiple statements released in the past week doom her candidacy before it even starts. Not to mention what she's liable to say during the race itself. Or the fact that she doesn't even live in Kentucky. Or the fact that Kentucky absolutely loathes Obama.
Dems must know this, so I doubt she runs.
Go away, KA!
I just don't see a liberal democrat who is an unabashed Obama lover and doesn't live in Kentucky being able to take down Mitch on her own merits. If Mitch implodes, which is definitely possible, then it's another story.
They need someone like Joe Manchin, not someone who is going to come and preach to voters about giving up guns and religion
This is the biggest non-story in a month of a lot of non-stories. Mitch only has to worry about a challenge from the right. The primary is his election.
This is all Politico's fault.
Yeah, I'm not saying it's a popular opinion, and if McConnell gets primaried, I think that person wins in a walk against Judd. I'm just saying I think people are underestimating how much anger there is at institutional power. And McConnell, as much as he tries to hide it, is the ultimate insider.
Do they hate institutional power as much as they hate hollywood elites? I don't know, but I think it's closer than conventional wisdom might indicate.
LOL not hardly...it's just that there's so much out there on her because she's already a celebrity. She has a long list of quotes that are already her undoing.
"If everyone can avoid making Todd Akin-esque comments then she will be a goldmine of entertainment."
Look, we've come to expect a certain level of rape comments in major GOP Senate races now, so it'd be a bit rude to cut back 100% all at once.

Protip: ask Ashley Judd why Mitt Romney won Kentucky by 23 points. Bet she insults the state's voters.
Just send these around to rural Kentucky.
Nice knowing you, Mitch McConnell!
The Hatfields and McCoys ain’t got nothin’ on The Judds. The celebrity family’s famous feuds are threatening to hamper Ashley Judd’s political career in Kentucky even before it starts.
“She [Ashley] is not as smart as she acts,” her mother Naomi Judd volunteered to Piers Morgan in January.
Ashley is just another “Hollywood liberal,” complained her grandmother to The Associated Press in December 2012, adding she would vote for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell before her own kin.
Famed family's feuds could hurt movie star's potential senate run
Odd that the Daily Caller would run an article like this now.
Interesting. I'd have thought the DSCC would be happy with such a high profile candidate and want to avoid a primary at all costs.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is not throwing its weight behind Ashley Judd yet. On a conference call with reporters Monday, the committee He would not directly deny a report in the Louisville Eccentric...
Maybe they want something besides a high "profile".
We can't beat McConnell, and if Judd goes off the reservation or implodes, they won't want her to help take down the rest of our Senate candidates in the process (the way Akin, Mourdock, etc. did to the Rs last time).
She's all risk, no reward.
Yep. McConnell can only lose by a challeger from the right and that would likely be an uphill battle.

Voter ID laws might help to discourage voter fraud.
Three people � including a nun and a longtime poll worker � are facing charges related to improper voting.
For such a time as this.
But if Romney had won, this wouldn't be a big deal right?
"The drummer for Maryland's pep band just freaked out: 'They're trying to slow the game down,' he screamed. 'Get up on them, get up on them.
It was an issue before the election it is an issue now.
Please explain how Obama got 108% of the registered voters in some precincts in Ohio.
Those five extra votes really changed the outcome of the election!
That blog is a nice little mix of conservative stuff and astronomy(?). But I guess comets are just god's something rather, right?

But perhaps you can explain Obama getting 108% of registered voters in certain Ohio precincts.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns? The most realistic explanation is voter fraud in a few swing states. According to the Columbus Dispatch, one out of every five registered voters in Ohio is ineligible to vote. In at least two counties in Ohio, the number of registered voters exceeded the number of eligible adults who are of voting age. In northwestern Ohio's Wood County, there are 109 registered voters for every 100 people eligible to vote. An additional 31 of Ohio's 88 counties have voter registration rates over 90%, which most voting experts regard as suspicious. Obama miraculously won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland, and received over 99% of the vote where GOP inspectors were illegally removed.
