The Latest Judd Family Drama Involves A GPS Tracking Device And A Mini Cooper

Looks like Ashley and Wynonna Judd are going through another sibling feud, and this one’s a doozy, even when compared to the last one, when Wynonna got married next door to Ashley’s house, didn’t invite her, and then giggled delightedly as her new husband fired a gun in Ashley’s general direction. Eesh. This time around the Judd drama is a little more high tech. Apparently when Ashley took her Mini Cooper to a mechanic last month to get it checked out, the mechanic uttered the only words more frightening than “You’re going to need a new transmission”: “Ummm, we just found a GPS tracking device hidden under your car.”

And guess who put it there? Wynonna! Keep reading »

On Tuesday, Mother Jones released an audio recording of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaking with members of his reelection staff. Much of the conversation focused on actor Ashley Judd, who, until recently, was rumored to be mulling a run against the current Senate GOP leader. For the most part, the recording is typical opposition research. An aide rehearses Judd’s public politics: She loves Obamacare, is pro-gay marriage and self-identifies as a feminist.

None of this, of course, is much of a surprise — Judd campaigned for President Obama and has spoken publicly on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America. More disconcerting than the rehashing of Judd’s political ideology, however, is when the discussion veers from policy to Judd’s reproductive choices and then quickly to her mental health.

“We Saw Your Boobs” is (ugh) having a moment and conservative blog The Daily Caller is allllll too happy to point out that actress and humanitarian Ashley Judd, who is noodling a run for Senator of Kentucky, has shown her boobs on the big screen. Not just her boobs. Judd has had “some raunchy sex scenes” on film. “[W]ill Judd be the first potential senator who has — literally — nothing left to show us?” asked some asshat.  Keep reading »

Ashley Judd was compared to Todd Akin by conservative writer for The Daily Caller, Alex Pappas. Seriously?

Ashley Judd’s name has been floated around as possible Democratic candidate to run Senator Mitch McConnell in Kentucky in 2014. But haters have already come out swinging, with a writer for conservative blog The Daily Caller comparing the actress/humantarian/women’s rights activist to Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. No, seriously. He did:

“Judd runs the risk of being portrayed as a Todd Akin-esque candidate — meaning voters simply decide she’s unqualified to serve as a senator, because her comments are so outrageous.”

They both have the initial “A” in their names and when people talk about them the word “senate” is thrown around, but that’s where the similarities end. Judd’s comments may be on the liberal end of the spectrum, but they are not “outrageous” in the way that Akin’s uneducated comments were. Last I checked, Ashley Judd understands actual biology.

Ashley Judd

Hey, if Jesse Ventura, Arnold Schwarzenegger and various and sundry porn stars can run for office, so can Ashley Judd. The actress, women’s rights activist and philanthropist is allegedly being touted by Kentucky politicos as a good Democrat to challenge Senator Mitch McConnell in 2014. Judd, who used to live in KY and now resides in Tennessee, has herself made comments about running for office some say. A Huffington Post political analyst divulged on MSNBC as well that “the money people in Kentucky want Ashley Judd.” I wouldn’t complain: she’s super intelligent and has a compassionate heart. Women may have won big on Tuesday, but not big enough, I say. [USA Today] [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
