    I'd hate to miss an opportunity to take out McConnell by serving him a political neophyte on a platter. If Ashley Judd can get fully up to speed, then great, but that doesn't sound realistic. Presumably McConnell has some campaigning skills, given his abysmal record in office.

      It's already competitive. I don't think her not having run for office before will be too much of a problem.

          Ask Governor Schwarzenegger or Governor Hogan (that's Hulk Hogan) about the power of name recognition. How about Sonny Bono? He ran as a Republican. Mull that over, a former hippie icon ran and won largely on his name recognition. She might need some work to get up to speed but she's starting at the right time -- now. If she waits until 2014 to engage then I'd agree it was too late. But this is perfect timing.
           

          What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

            Winona Judd is an institution in Kentucky.

            And the #1 issue of a run against that bastard McConnell is drugs. That asshole stayed in the well-bribed ass-crack of the pharmaceutical industry and blocked action to change the laws governing production and distribution of Oxycontin/oxycodone and the like.

            A plague on Kentucky. Courtesy of McConnell.

            Run this Far Right &^%&^%^ out of the Senate.
