I grew up in a small town in Eastern Kentucky. There were two major industries there an oil company and a steel mill and yet I am still only the seventh most famous person from that town.
There was Henry Clay back in the pre-Civil War day who was a senator and known as “The Great Compromiser¨ which means he was the John McCain of his day with no core belief he wouldn’t drop for the sake of getting along.
Ashland Kentucky also produced that achy breaky king Billy Ray Cyrus, game show host Chuck Woolery and three Judds. Ashley Judd wasn’t born there but lived back in the land where coal meets iron off and on as she was growing up. Ashley want on to study at The University of Kentucky where she majored in anthropology, theater and woman’s studied which meant she was destined for Hollywood, a counseling job at the U of K student center or management at the local McDonalds.
Fortunately for Ms. Judd the whole Hollywood thing worked out for her and she is now beginning a new career as a political activist. While I have often said to that the greatest thing about America is that we have the right to be as stupid as we want to be Ms. Judd has recently demonstrated that we in Kentucky have a way to go before we shuck off our image as being one of the less literate states.
Here are some of her recent pronouncements on the state of affairs in the country. She kicked off her trifecta of stupid back in September by declaring that “a woman who votes for McCain-Palin is like a chicken voting for Colonel Saunders.” Got it? In Ms. Judd’s world any woman who is not for a strict liberal agenda is a moron. So much for reaching out to the right and uniting the country under her new hero President Obama. Have you ever noticed that want a leftie talks about coming together or uniting the country or stopping the partisan politics what they really mean is that conservatives should drop their core beliefs and do what the left wants. When Bush was in the White House descent was their patriotic duty now if you are not lock step with the BHO agenda you are an obstructionist.
I wonder if Ms. Judd is on board with Barack´s latest idea to limit salaries to $500.000. I was just wondering how much she made for her last picture. I am sure if you figured it out on a year basis is was well over the top CEO money. Then after the election she made some snarky comment about now that Bush was out of office it was nice to be living in America again. I have to be honest here and admit I wasn’t crazy about everything Bush did while in office, in fact in a past blog I named him the greatest Democrat President ever. She was speaking about “woman’s reproductive rights” under Bush which is political correct speak for unfettered abortion. I challenge her to find one woman in this country who had been prevented from or prosecuted for having an abortion in the past eight years by our government.
Then this week Ashley voiced an ad for a far left animal rights group protesting Governor Palin´s support for aerial wolf hunting. Again, I don’t know what world Ms. Judd lives in where the lives of wolves are more important to her than the lives of unborn children but since she supports unfettered abortion and opposes the killing of wolves one must assume in her morality wolves trump kids. Since the killing of arctic wolves is necessary to protect other animals I suppose she even has a hierarchy of animals that need protection. I´d hate to see where right wing nut jobs like me finish on that list.
