Republicans Target Ashley Judd, and Tucker Carlson’s Beat is Her Boobs

We Saw your Boobs!

We are used to knowing just about everything there is to know about serious political candidates. But will Judd be the first potential senator who has – literally – nothing left to show us? [...] In both 1996′s “Norma Jean and Marilyn” and 1999′s “Eye of the Beholder,” Judd went full frontal and bared her behind. – Taylor Bigler, [so-called] “Entertainment Editor” for Daily Caller

THE WOMAN posing as “entertainment editor” at the Daily Caller is either the dumbest writer in the history of American culture or she’s shooting to re-open the 1938 National League of Decency, now under the jurisdiction of that paragon of moral virtue, the hierarchy of the Catholic church, which covered for pedophile priests. It’s all in an effort to make sure Mitch McConnell can keep his Senate seat, because Republicans are already suffering from such a severe case of flop sweat over Ashley Judd entering the race that it’s all hands on deck Ashley Judd ‘s boobs.

Welcome to fame’s flip side.

Mr. Skin thanks Tucker Carlson in advance for all those hits he’s sending him. All this before Ms. Judd is even a candidate yet.

Now maybe you know why I wrote what I did about “We Saw Your Boobs” at the Oscars this year, because female nudity and American films go together like the Daily Caller and ignorance. Art and the female nude go back to the dawn of man, with that appetite continuing to expand as time goes by and platforms widen, which says more about humanity and American culture than it does about any female actor’s choices in films. That is, if she wants to make a living and rise to pick her roles.

If all this seems familiar, all you have to do is think back to Rush Limbaugh’s treatment of Sandra Fluke [also see Think Progress]. How he personally attacked her and left no aspect of her as a woman unremarked upon. But it’s okay that Senator Vitters is in the Senate after cheating on his wife in the most embarrassing manner, allegedly wearing diapers during sex. It’s okay Mark Sanford cheated on his wife, but did so by completely disappearing from his day job as governor, because he had to see his mistress. Sanford’s on an apology tour and could end up in Congress. There are far worse crimes than sex, but I don’t have time to list the immorality of Republicans, because if I started with the Bush administration that alone would take all night.

However, a woman doing her job in the film industry is shamed, because the work she’s hired to do in an industry that makes America billions of dollars is all her fault, because she’s being paid to do her job. Ashley Judd played Marilyn Monroe in a biopic, to name just one role, but she’s evidently not supposed to represent the actress who wouldn’t have had much of a career if she’d shunned her sex pot persona, which was part of her very essence. It’s part of the “it” thing that makes women stars. That Monroe was hailed as the epitome of female beauty during a time when she was also the President Kennedy’s mistress was kept secret by the entire Washington press corp.

As for the Daily Caller’s so-called “entertainment editor,” that she’s gone to “Mr. Skin” to get what she thinks are the goods on Ashley Judd proves what an amateur mud-slinger she is. What that woman knows about the American film industry and the work of actors like Ashley Judd do in it could fit in Phyllis Schlafly’s thimble.

This is all being done by a conservative woman acting as a beard for conservative men while giving a bad imitation of an “entertainment editor,” trying to fool people she’s anything but the latest iteration of a wing-nut decency league.

But the coal industry thanks you.

It’s also an example of just how dumb Republicans think voters are, but also that they don’t think Ms. Judd expected this from the start. But do they actually think this will faze her?

Ashley Judd in 2012 wrote a piece for the Daily Beast and it says it much better than anyone else on this subject. It also sends a message to Republicans that they need to hear. Ashley Judd, if she declares for Senate, is going to make Mitch McConnell work harder than he ever has in his life to keep his seat.

As an actor and woman who, at times, avails herself of the media, I am painfully aware of the conversation about women’s bodies, and it frequently migrates to my own body. I know this, even though my personal practice is to ignore what is written about me. I do not, for example, read interviews I do with news outlets. I hold that it is none of my business what people think of me. I arrived at this belief after first, when I began working as an actor 18 years ago, reading everything. I evolved into selecting only the “good” pieces to read. Over time, I matured into the understanding that good and bad are equally fanciful interpretations. I do not want to give my power, my self-esteem, or my autonomy, to any person, place, or thing outside myself. I thus abstain from all media about myself. The only thing that matters is how I feel about myself, my personal integrity, and my relationship with my Creator. Of course, it’s wonderful to be held in esteem and fond regard by family, friends, and community, but a central part of my spiritual practice is letting go of otheration. And casting one’s lot with the public is dangerous and self-destructive, and I value myself too much to do that.

    She could just do a ” Double Indemnity. ” move on them.

    Yea I saw her on cspan at gwu last week. Just great stuff. MSM freaking out abt some of her comments int he past. She speaks with authroity on things like VAWA as she is a rape victim. I just hope she runs-the chickerns will come home to roost! A high profile woman who can rake in the army and money to take on McConnell and make him pay for his war on women!

    “This is all being done by a conservative woman acting as a beard for conservative men while giving a bad imitation of an “entertainment editor,” trying to fool people she’s anything but the latest iteration of a wing-nut decency league. ”

    Once again demonstrating the UBERChristohypicrite origins of SO much of the juvenile, prurient gibbering that comes from the wingnuteshere.

    And in an another entertaining if pathetic example of the wing nuts thinking SEX is the ultimate evil…so long as it’s about Dems ya unnerstan……one of the “escorts” so breathlessly quoted by daily caller smear merchants has come forward and stated to police she was PAID by them to say what was on a script they gave her…she had never even SEEM Menendez before.
    Of course they never mentioned limpwithnoballs getting busted for illegal; drugs(a HALF of a viagra prescription in someone else’s name ) coming back from the same place the wingnuts are accusing menendez of going to for sex tourism.

    I hope she runs. I think she stands a good chance of beating McConnell.

    2014 are the mid-terms and progressives/liberals everywhere will need a galvanizing point to vote and Ashley Judd can supply that in a race against McConnell. God knows the DC establishment Dems are poised to destroy themselves and any chance for gains in the mid-terms with there stupidity on the sequester and the potential to vote for chained CPI and cuts to medicare and medicaid for Pres Obama’s Grand Bargain.(With only a few exceptions have you ever seen a more hapless Democratic Party leadership). I swear if I see one more congressional Dem on TV lamenting the sequester and hemming and hawing on the big three I’m going to throw a brick and the screen.

    Ashley Judd has the potential to be this cycles Elizabeth Warren and I bet she can bring a fair amount of moderate Republican woman to her side. She is McConnell’s nightmare because if he plays very dirty and rough with her by insulting or demeaning her it will absolutely piss off women of all political stripes. If she maintains the high ground and campaigns like Eliz Warren McConnell is in deep trouble.

      One can only work hard and hope!!!

    Actually that quote by that Taylor Bigler could have been written by anyone over at Politico. Guess it just depends on the timing and when it is ‘self-delared’ appropriate to write about it.

    The Republicans certainly do think that the voters are dumb; and they are counting on Democratic voters in Kentucky being even dumber, taking the GOP “I dare you to nominate Ashley Judd” feint, and pouring money and sweat and tears into the campaign of a person who SIMPLY CANNOT WIN IN KENTUCKY.

    Jesus, people, are you KIDDING me with this? “The next Elizabeth Warren?” Warren won with 54% of the vote in a Blue State Obama carried by more than 20 points. She was running against a guy who had pulled off a low-turnout special election victory two years previous. Ashley Judd will be running against the Senate Majority Leader, who has been in office for three decades, in a state which has not voted Democratic for President since 1996 and which just sent RAND PAUL to the Senate THREE YEARS AGO.

    Oh, but by all means, put your hopes on the back of Ashley Judd’s campaign. When she’s ground into a fine powder by the autumn of 2014, please spare me the “he didn’t fight fair” whining. She CAN’T WIN IN KENTUCKY. GET. A. CLUE.

      Blah, blah, blah, gonna go eat worms, gonna go eat worms, gonna go eat worms,yadayadayada. Did I miss anything? Oh yeah…IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT!!!!!

      • jjamele March 5, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

        Um…WTF-ever, man. You want to empty your wallet into that campaign, feel free to do so.

        I could tell you some other things you are free to do, but I’ve already gotten on Taylor’s bad side in the past, so I’ll just keep it to myself.

        Is kind of funny that you are the same person who loves to tell other people that their opinions are not needed here. I can count on the fingers of one hand how many times you’ve posted something moderately productive rather than a cloud of illiterate spittle.

          So then I’m four up on you?

  7. Ramsgate March 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    I suspect that she will run. The Repugs are scared to death of her. I think they already know that if she does run that McConnell is history. At least Rove knows that.

    So, let them continue with their tired old song from the Reagan era: “Too Librul for Kentucky” and watch what happens.

    • jjamele March 5, 2013 at 6:51 pm #

      My guess is that what we’ll watch happens is McConnell winning another term, easily, despite being the most unpopular Senator in the country. The Democrats rarely miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

      I’d love to come back here in November, 2014 and eat crow. I think Ashley Judd would make a GREAT Senator. But not from Kentucky. No. Way.
