Down-home Kentucky populist: Mountaintop coal removal is a bit like rape

posted at 6:20 pm on March 4, 2013 by

These videos of her sounding completely politically tone-deaf are supposed to reassure me, right? Well, they don’t. Quite the contrary. Every time I watch her, I think, “What if McConnell actually ends up losing — in Kentucky — to this liberal cartoon?” Where do we go from there? It’s one thing for an increasingly blue America to elect Obama twice, it’s another for a red state to send a caricature of a self-serious Socially Conscious liberal to join Rand Paul in the Senate.

If we lose, I think that’s it. It’s all over. Click the image to watch.

For once we agree> For an actress who is only 44 (and childless at that), Ashly Judd looks horrible. But, they do say politics is theater for the unattractive.

I have a theory, that women who make it to menopause childless and marriage-less go insane.

See: Ann Coulter of the last year.

I’m not easily offended, but as a woman, I find this comment extremely offensive. Without marriage and children, a woman goes crazy? It’s crap like this that gives the libs ammo because they think all of us are as sexist as you.

Meanwhile, Ashley is out there appealing to Kentucky women with her personal story. Be careful conservatives…

AP, we have Al Franken in the Senate. AL Freakin FRANKEN for crying out loud. You don’t think a photogenic, beautiful woman who has significant name recognition and two decades of practice memorizing and spewing out what other people wrote for her can outmaneuver Mitch McConnell, who frankly is about as compelling as a milk carton left out on the kitchen counter since the morning?
I’d be scared, very scared that she would stay in for the long haul. McConnell doesn’t have the balls to fight. He’d put on the dour face and try to “stick to the issues” while she’s on every radio and tv news show.
His only chance would be to hammer her endlessly and take no prisoners. Force her to be on the defensive.

That’s a fair point.

Buy… who is this “photogenic, beautiful woman” and can she beat puffy-faced Ashly Judd in the primary?

Thanks. Yep, that was it. And apparently lawyers got the original article taken down – at least that was a claim I saw.

*facepalm*

You’re right.
Bcs we all know that many people think with their emotions & seem to hardly use much logic at all when voting.
This is why we have Obama as POTUS.
