Rand Paul says Ashley Judd way "too liberal" for our country and our state.

http://www.kentucky.com/2012/12/05/2432771/rand-paul-says-ashley-judd-is.html#wgt=rcntnews

<snip>
FRANKFORT — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul told a Washington D.C. radio station Wednesday that actress Ashley Judd was "way damn too liberal for our country and our state."

Judd has been mentioned as a possible Democratic candidate against long-time U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014 or against Paul in 2016. Washington-based web site Politico ran a story earlier this week saying that Judd has talked to several high-ranking Democrats about a run in Kentucky.

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear Wednesday did not dismiss Judd as a possible candidate but said that he would not run against McConnell in 2014.

In an interview with WMAL in Washington, Paul was asked about the possibility of Judd running against him in 2016. "I heard she lives in Scotland," Paul said. "I thought she was running for Parliament."

3. They're scared

She's an eighth generation Eastern Kentuckian. Poor Mitch - the teabaggers on one side and Ashley the liberal running for the Dems - bye bye Mitch - enjoy all that new found wealth.

4. She actually has more qualifications for the job than most candidates

Ashley Judd has been very involved in the fight against AIDS in Africa and actually has quite a bit of experience in international affairs. Rand Paul could not dismiss her as a mere celebrity because she has a far more impressive resume than he ran on, very few Republican candidates could present the qualifications she can with her Harvard education and experience with international diplomacy.

6. The degree she received from Harvard suggests she will run

She received a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Harvard in 2010, why would a successful actress go through all the work of getting a Master's Degree in Public Administration if she did not intend to use it?

26. Welcome to DU...

I suspect you are correct.

I love how Judd said she wanted to enter public service like ronald reagan before her did.

21. Yes, she did.

It was over the wolves (a policy which has sadly continued unabated under SP's successor). Google Ashley Judd Sarah Palin and watch the videos . Priceless. If I remember right, SWSNBN called Ashley a "tiny Hollywood starlet" or something along those lines.

Ed. Here, I found the quote at The Immoral Minority. This was transcribed by Jeanne Devon at The Mudflats from SP's quittin' speech:

"Let me tell you, Alaskans really need to stick together on this with new leadership in this area especially, encouraging new leadership… got to stiffen your spine to do what’s right for Alaska when the pressure mounts, because you’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-second amendment circuses from Hollywood and here’s how they do it. They use these delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets (Ashley Judd), they use Alaska as a fundraising tool for their anti-second amendment causes. Stand strong, and remind them patriots will protect our guaranteed, individual right to bear arms, and by the way, Hollywood needs to know, we eat, therefore we hunt."

And Caribou Barbie's response was so idiotic. Notice how she's always the "victim?"

9. Personally, I think she should plan on a double run if necessary...

Run against Mitch in 2014 and if, perchance, she did not win, she would have the base and experience to knock off Paul in 2016. Put the target on both of their asses!

11. I will take an interest on the Senate race in Kentucky

Although I have never been in Kentucky, I am embarrassed that Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul are the senators of that state.

My ancestors, several branches of them in fact, were among the first colonial Americans to come to that state, decades before it was a state. My great (x5) grandparents were Hannah Boone, the youngest sister of Daniel Boone, and John Stewart, Daniel Boone's hunting partner who came with Boone on his early trips to Kentucky. John Stewart disappeared during a storm on one of those trips in 1770; his remains were found about two years later in a tree hollow. A few weeks after his disappearance, Hannah gave birth to Ann Elizabeth Stewart, my great great great great grandmother.

16. Speaking of that, I've got roots in Ky., too.

My great-great-great-great-grandfather, Luke Jackson Bozeman, was born in Kentucky in 1815; whom, by the way, was a relative of old West pioneer John Merin Bozeman. Don't know if L.J. was known for anything famous himself, though.

17. I think every white person now living west of the Mississippi has roots in Kentucky

I have a notebook here written by a distant and long deceased relative many years ago. He talks of the family origins in Floyd County. He starts with about a half dozen siblings and doesn't mention where they came from or who their parents were. It's like they just materialized out of the mist in the environs of Prestonburg in the later part of the 18th century.

25. I knew I forgot another qualification

. . . and who is at least a fourth-generation American on at least one side of his family.

I should be more sensitive to that. I was married to a immigrant for 20 years. We have two kids.

32. With that qualification, you're probably right

Although a few years ago, a book was published which described settlement trends in the US. It claimed that the westward movement from the East Coast has tended to be largly directly to the west. People in the northern part of the western US are descended from people in the northern part of the East Coast.

I think I saw that book mentioned on DU, originally, but unfortunately I can't remember the title.

23. The sad thing is I think a decent argument can be made that Paul is an improvement over Bunning

Not a compliment to Paul, Bunning was absurdly wrongheaded on any and all subjects and unresponsive.

Paul, is just as much an ass but at least his office acknowledges you and can appear coherent at times.

31. She has my vote if she chooses to run

If she doesn't, I don't know who else might challenge him. Kentucky's state-level democratic party is disorganized and not very strong. We need to come up with some candidates - McConnell and Paul need to go!
