Ashley Judd refers to possible run for Senate in speech


ashley judd worse than kenyan

Ashley Judd has been driving Republicans crazy. Well, crazier than usual. Reports of her planning to declare candidacy for Mitch McConnell's Senate seat have stirred things up in Kentucky, even though Judd has denied them... sort of.

But recently, in a speech at the American Counseling Association's 2013 conference in Cincinnati, she dropped a couple of hints about running while discussing her experience with depression. That's perked up a few ears:

(AP) -  [S]he said when she started in counseling she didn't like to be criticized. She added that was ironic since she was, in her words, "about to get $40 million worth of it."    

Sounds like someone who's running to me, how about you?

As for her distaste for criticism, join the club, because unfortunately, once you're in the political public eye, it comes with the territory. In her case, she's a prime target, and has already received a few zings (albeit idiotic ones).

Ashley also mentioned Naomi Judd, her mom, who apparently said that she couldn't wait to convert her garage "into a campaign headquarters."

Convert away, Naomi, and then wait for more GOP heads to explode *coughKarlRovecough*.

The NRA feels threatened by 'N Sync, Mel Brooks, Moon Unit Zappa, Geraldo, and a bunch of deceased actors

enemies list via



Ooooo, the NRA has an enemies list. Are you a-skeered yet? I wasn't included, but if one day I end up on their Liberals Are Icky List, and if they ever come within ten feet of me, I'm gonna fight them off with my unAmerican bubble blowers and sticks and words. Sweartogod.

They did include AARP. And the Gray Panthers. And National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and National Black Nurses Association. Because they're evil. They're what one might even call "pro-life." Go figure.

Think Progress counted, and they are reporting that there are 506 names on the NRA list. Which of course means that there are at least 506 sane people and/or groups.

Apparently, the Big Gunners feel unusually threatened by:

"Boys II Men - Pop Group" -- Yeah, they're a real threat. And it's "Boyz," geniuses.

86-year-old "Mel Brooks - Actor/Director"

"Jill Clayburgh - Actress" who died in 2010

Other deceased actors

The highly intimidating "Art Garfunkel - Singer"

Fox's "Geraldo - TV personality" -- Who? Oh, him. The guy who is "truly contemplating" a run for U.S. Senate. Why, whatever will ClusterFox say!

Soap opera queen "Deidra Hall - Actress" (which they also spelled wrong; it's Deidre)

"Mary Tyler Moore - Actress" -- What, they take issue with her trademark "Ooooohhhh, NRA!"

"Dick Van Dyke - Actor"-- Well, at least he and Mary are in sync. Speaking of whom...

"N Sync - Music group" -- No, NRA, that would be "defunct music group." And it's 'N, not N, Einsteins.

"Moon Zappa -Actress" --  Omigod, NRA, her name is, like, "Moon Unit"! Barf me out! You guys are soooo, like, totally grody to the max! Gag me with a spoon.

There are so many more Point-and-Laugh Moments here. Enjoy!
