Knives out for Ashley Judd
Actress Ashley Judd has faced an unusual onslaught of political attacks for someone who hasn't even announced that they are running for office. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, whom she is reportedly considering challenging, has already run an ad mocking her, as has Karl Rove's American Crossroads. Today, add The Daily Caller.
Alex Pappas, the Caller's best reporter, writes today that "Ashley Judd’s biggest problem" is "her history of bizarre comments." The comments, about gender inequality and mountaintop removal coal mining, could be damaging in conservative Kentucky, but are not overtly explosive.
