    (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.

    Ha, ha. I would think that is the main qualification. No sane person would run for office.

    Why don't the people in Africa and Asia (or wherever else) who can least afford to properly feed, clothe and house children seriously consider whether or not to have children. It's goofy thinking like hers that make some liberals laughable. People in the first world who can afford children are not keeping food out of the mouths of children in some shit hole third world country. It's usually poverty resulting from corrupt governmental officials that's responsible.

    I wouldn't vote for her just based on that bit of "wisdom" she espouses.

    No / not this white lady. We've had an awesome president of color and we can't stop with just one! It is vital that we keep a forward movement and give another race a chance / to make up for all the injustices we've done to them! Next / it has to be a Hispanic, Indian, or Asian man or woman. We've got to search to find one / to make things right. What we should do is let Barak Obama toss the first name in / since he knows what it was like being the first minority to turn the tide. There's got to be a qualified minority. Cezar Chavez would be cool if he were here. Angela Davis / but we've already had a black president / we've got to give the other races a turn. C'mon people! Think!

    As a conservative, I am often provided an opportunity to feel a liberal's "pain" just as Ms. Judd must from right rants. I after all think sterilization is a wonderful thing and those who know me personally can testify that I not only believe eugenics is a way forward, but something I practice.

    One must admit if cocks weren't sliding in-and-out of vagina's in impoverished countries, the burden of feeding those folk would be lessened. The difference between I and Ms. Judd on that is only in approach as to how to feed people -- who for whatever reason -- can't feed themselves. If resources are applied without a bloated liberal infrastructure or corruption, those people can and are fed.

    Perhaps Ashley's time will come and Kentuckians can decide.
