Ashley Judd running for governor?
WickedRyan saidShe is a little nuts.She has no chance of winning.
Svnw688 said(1). She's simply floating the idea in a very abstract sense, and does not seem to be gunning for Governor.
(2). She actually was serious about challenging long-time (28 years?) incumbent Senator Mitch McConnell. The then Senate minority leader. And various polls had her within 4 to 9 points in polling. That's outside of the sampling error, but well within the bounds of reason. To suggest Judd has no sway or cache in Kentucky is simply wrong. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/13/ashley-judd-poll_n_2681341.html
(3). Judd is not a little crazy either. She's simply liberal and many of her statements have been mischaracterized. For example, she thinks that people should seriously consider whether to have children, and if so, how many, considering there are starving children all over the world (this ties into her status as a huge humanitarian for impoverished and exploited children, especially in Africa and Asia). The right called this eugenics and sterilization.
(4). If you want to talk about a little crazy, check out Sarah Palin's political stance on any controversial subject, or Michelle Bachman's "marriage" to a conversion therapy closeted-gay man. That's crazy. Judd is cool. She was even married to a hot race car driver. Judd is legit.
