Yarmuth says Ashley Judd may run for office

Will she or won’t she? That’s the question many are asking about Ashley Judd possibly running against Kentucky U-S Senator Mitch McConnell.

Congressman John Yarmuth says he’s talked with Judd, who is from Kentucky.

He says the actress is weighing the possibility of running for office.

Yarmuth says he’s not interested in the seat, but it’s a top priority to find a good candidate to run against McConnell.

And, Judd may be eyeing something other than McConnell’s seat.

Yarmuth says, “I think she’s very interested in becoming a candidate for some office whether it’s next year against Mitch McConnell or it’s against Rand Paul whether it’s for some other office I don’t know, but she’s a very serious potential candidate.”


I don’t mind celebrities running for office. They have as much right to run as anyone else.

But why do they always seem to want to start at the top?

Okay, not always. Clint Eastwood ran for mayor of Carmel. Sonny Bono ran for Congress.

But look how many run (or at least talk about running) for governor, senator and president. That’s 151 positions in the entire country. Shouldn’t those jobs go to people with some experience at working in government? I’m not talking about playing a politician on television or in a movie. I mean real life experience.

There are lots of state and local positions celebrities can run for to get experience. Let them start there. If they do well we can consider promoting them.

    but she played one in the movies.

    wouldn’t be nice if she started locally, found out was was going on in her own neck of the woods, then to a state seat, then maybe to DC?
    You know that silly thing experience, that maybe would give the opportunity to know what you are talking about

    FYI:

    The Twitter account @myiq2xu is not me.

    It belongs to a imposter troll from Rumproast.

    Do yourself a favor and block him.

    Agree completely, myiq. It’s ridiculous.

    what you didn’t like Arnie Schwatzeneger as your guv minator

    Oops, I almost forgot Bubba.

    Alan Autry was mayor of Fresno. I should know that since I voted for him.

    Of all the special unique little snowflakes that now populate this country who believe they should be heaped with love, awards & money by virtue of their existence, celebrities are extra-special unique little snowflakes who should of course start “at the top” — their celebrity qualifies them for whatever job a non-celebrity can do.

      Yes, that’s it exactly. I’d actually rather support some poor, unknown person with some life experiences to offer then a celebrity who thinks they know it all.

      Palin said we should look for people with a servant’s heart. Makes sense if you’re trying to hire somebody who serves the people.

        And, if we’re really honest, if Obama can be POTUS, anyone can — why not someone who *actually is* good looking so we don’t have to keep pretending he is.

    • smile says:

      Slightly OT, but in that same vein, I have often considered it kind of silly that celebrities gather together several times a year to get awarded for being the best in their field, and that it is televised all around the world for all the people to applaud and be entertained. What other career fields get together several times a year to award the best in their fields in the U.S., let alone televise it to the whole world as entertainment. Yeah, I know the celebrities supposedly represent art. But, how about honoring the sciences, the engineering fields, the service fields, the pilots, etc. It just makes me wonder about the size of their egos as they all gather together for the Oscars, the Golden Globes, and what nots. The rest of the us non-celebrities are content to just do our jobs and be recognized by our bosses, and get a raise now and then.

    In case you were wondering where I get it:

    I told my mom I needed a new calendar. She brought over “Outhouses of America”

  8. Well, when celebrities see that we elected a celebrity Prez, with no real practical experience for the job — why wouldn’t they think, hell, I can do that, too.

  9. Oh, yeah, and the Guvernator found out just how well it went over when he got elected and referred to the state reps in CA as “girlie men” — he got his azz handed to him.
