Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd’s Senate Campaign Derailed after Republicans Release Embarrassing Video

Actress Ashley Judd, who was seriously considering a 2014 Senate run in Kentucky and was seen as the Democrat’s best chance of unseating Republican Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, tearfully announced today that her campaign is over, after republicans released an embarrassing video of the actress last night.

The video, otherwise known as the 2004 film, “Twisted,” which co-starred Samuel L. Jackson and Andy Garcia, is seen by most political analysts as more damaging than the infamous Mitt Romney “47 Percent” video, because Romney’s video didn’t bomb at the boxoffice and receive a rotten rating of 2% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell seen at a news conference where he threatened to show the embarrassing video of Ashley Judd.

“I was young and naïve when I starred in that terrible movie, and after reading the script, I was sure no one would ever see it,” a remorseful Judd told a packed news conference to announce she will not be running in 2014.  “Up until now, I thought I had destroyed all the copies of ‘Twisted.’ ”

Unless she dropped out of the race, Republicans, led by Sen. McConnell, threatened Judd with a negative campaign that was planned to include offering free screenings of “Twisted” at theaters in Kentucky to all voters, in addition to McConnell beginning every debate against Judd by reading a critic’s review of “Twisted.”

Even Judd’s biggest democratic supporters who were encouraging her to run, withdrew their support after re-watching “Twisted,” feeling that anyone who would agree to star in such an awful movie, lacks the judgment needed to become a U.S. Senator.

This isn’t the first time Republicans used a horrible movie to derail the political ambitions of a movie star.  Warren Beatty told Hollywood & Swine the reason he never decided to run for office was out of fear that his opponents might bring up “Ishtar,” and he refused to put his family through that kind of embarrassment.

    Bad movies, like Bedtime for Bonzo happen all the time. Fuck McConnell, she should run anyway. Even the people of Kentucky can recognize blackmail.

      I am sure the dumb masses would vote her in.

        Considering you failed to notice that this is obviously a satire, she should be able to count on your vote then.

    Ashley was/is an actress. McConnell is scum. She should run. Who cares about a bad movie she did almost 10 years ago.

    Substitute Wynonna Judd for Ashley to really frighten the voters.

    Folks… get real, this is a spoof news web site. Take a look around.

  • gunner

    hey guys, wake up and smell the coffee, it’s satire. don’t get your jockey’s in a bunch.

    who cares about that video, this proves the ignorance of GOP trying to use anything they could find faults on women and minority and can not separate themselves from reality to la la land. Ashley is an actress, and that is just a movie not reality. Go go go, Ashely…no one cares for that video, it is just entrainment and many celebrity needs to go through before they become a star. This is America, not communist country, vote out all the GOP!

  • Gino

    In addition, if that movie was that bad, why Mitch and other GOP watched it and showed it to the public…..that means Mitch and those GOP are damaged goods.

    I really don’t see how the voters in Ky could do any worse than McConnell. That old man is senile and demented, I do believe !!

    WASHINGTON — A move to embarrass Democrats backfired on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday as the Kentucky Republican proposed a vote on raising the nation’s debt ceiling — then filibustered it when the Democrats tried to take him up on the offer.

    “What we have here is a case of the Republicans here in the Senate once again not taking yes for an answer,” Reid said. “This morning the Republican leader asked consent to have a vote on his proposal. Just now I told everyone we’re willing to have that vote, an up-or-down vote, and now the Republican leader objects to his own idea, so I guess we have a filibuser of his own bill.”

      If he is senile,m it means he is getitng up there, and was of an older generation, and thus a product of an older generation. Don’t judge his vales how every scuymmy by today’s pc standards, hombres.

    Don’t dismay “Red47,” I too was almost taken in. It’s my first time at this site. Of course as I read on I finally realized it was satire, not to mention Judd was at least 30 in 2004 and not so young and naive. But this SITE IS GREAT! I just looked at the other “stories.” I am going to “Like” this site now, then Tweet and FB it. :))

    People are actually taking this seriously. Lighten up.

    Dear McConnell haters and GOP bashers – I notice many of you think this is for real. If you cannot recognize satire, you should maybe question your presence here.

    Mitch is just pullin’ your Boehner.

  • TaterSalad

    Will Kentucky go for a Judd and ditch their guns? Ask her where she stands on gun ownership and the good ole’ boys of Kentucky will become pussy-fied because she is a liberal, Hollyweird and wants guns………………gone and government to control everyone. Good luck there Ashly because we aren’t buying into your Obama BS.

  • JackMasters

    What is truly sad about this is how hard it is to satarize the left. They are such bizarre loons that anything you read about them has the potential to be true!
