Ashley Judd for Kentucky
"it appears quite likely that Ashley Judd is going to take the plunge and join the race for Senate against Mitch McConnell. Continually in the posts we have shared about it, a number of people keep asking if she is smart enough, qualified, if she went to college, what her positions are, etc. The reason this chafes me is that it would literally take 20 seconds to google her and find out these facts:
She has a BA from the University of Kentucky.
She majored in French and minored in anthropology, art history, theater and women's studies (Honors program-Phi Theta Kappa)
She later earned a Master in Public Administration degree (MPA) from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2010.
She has been on the Board of Directors for the YouthAIDS program since 2004.
In 2011, she joined the Leadership Council of the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW).Positions:She condemned Sarah Palin for her support of murder by helicopter of wolves.
She campaigned for Harold Ford in TN and Barack Obama nationwide.
She published a HuffPo op-ed regarding the cheap labor used abroad by electronics companies.
She is against mountain top mining.
And she was a delegate at the 2012 Democratic National Convention from the State of Tennessee (she will need to reestablish residency in KY to run, which won't be hard).
So yeah, she happens to be an actress. A very smart, dedicated, progressive, activist actress.Good enough?And yes, I know by far, most of you get it."-quote
And I am behind her 100%. Get that rat fuck Mitch McConnell OUT.
