Of course, I am being dramatic, kinda like Ashley herself when she compares EVERYTHING to rape, but I do feel violated by her decision NOT to seek the Senate seat from Kentucky. I mean think of all that blogging gold that has been taken from me? Ashley Judd was not just a Tree of Low hanging Blogging Fruit, she was a grove! Now all that is gone what will I do? And what of Stacy McCain, who has just seen his dream die?
A source close to Judd said that Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes’ interest in potential race made the decision not to run easier. “The timing just wasn’t right,” said the source. …
Democratic Senate strategists have argued that Judd would be a good, if unconventional candidate, pointing to her ability to rival or even eclipse McConnell in fundraising. But McConnell’s path to victory involves savaging his opponent, and Judd’s status as an actress and celebrity would have offered him loads of ammunition.
Loads. Loads and loads. And now . . . nothing.
