American Crossroads targets liberal actress Judd with aggressive attack ad

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get ready to rumble! Karl Rove’s super PAC, American Crossroads, delivered a knockout punch to actress Ashley Judd in a new TV attack ad.

The Blaze reported Wednesday on a new American Crossroads ad aimed at the liberal movie actress, who is considering a 2014 challenge to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

The ad holds nothing back in its attack against the President Obama-loving, “delightfully radical” Judd. In fact, the must-watch ad lays out examples of exactly why it calls Judd “an Obama-following, radical Hollywood liberal.”

I wonder if Judd’s acting career prepared her to take on the big boys in politics, like Rove, as she moves onto the political stage.

    Hilarious! …If only we were dealing with intelligent people on the left! They'll love that she's a sheeple, too, unfortunately!

    And her best friend: the toothless Mitch McConnell! The more he shows his face, the more people are set to vote for Anyone but Mitch !

      While I agree it might be time to replace Mitch, But with Ashley Judd? Now that would be really going off the cliff!

    Right now, anything with American Crossroads brand on it, is an endorsement in the opposite direction. American Crossroads, and Mr Rove, predicted a GOP landslide up until the last minute on the Nov. election, dispite all the numbers falling in the Obama column. Mitch McConnell is his own worst enemy. So many quotes available to haunt him. Remember the big one that he said his main goal in 2009 was to make sure Obama was a one term president. So, how did that work out.

    As far as the citing Tennessee as home, look at the recent offerings of candidates: W was from Texas, although most of his family hailed from New England. Politicians will call anywhere home in order to get elected. This is a non issue.The biggest disadvantage is that Ms Judd is an actor and a Democrat. Oh, wait, Reagan, was an actor, and a Democrat.

    Kentucky and the US is ill served by Mr McConnell. Time for him to retire and work for one of his special interest friends. Old politicians always seem to come in handy, if nothing more than to just be around, where the special interest person can point to him and say: "Yes, we have Mr McConnell on our staff", even though they don't really trust him to do anything. Sort of like the job he is doing now. If I were Mr Rove, I'd also change the name of his PAC because, when voters see the name of American Crossroads or the Rove name. On second thought, Mr Rove, stay right in there, wave the American Crossroads logo everywhere, the Democrats would appreciate it. Just saying…

      Oh wait Ted, Reagan was a Republican when he was president. Way to twist the facts around to make your post seem like you know what the hell your talking about. …..Just saying

    What a really insightful piece! It lays out the whole Republican approach to American politics today with the opening "Let's get ready to rumble!" How trite is that? It is just some stupid cartoon game to these people who could care less about adding any meaningful substance to our conversations about how best to move this country forward. Just deep pride in contrived attack ads – 24/7 – through whatever media they can buy.

    "I wonder if Judd’s acting career prepared her to take on the big boys in politics, like Rove, as she moves onto the political stage."

    Rove is "big" all right. So is Limbaugh. So is Gingrich. So is Ailes. No wonder the Republican Party is eating its young these days as they strive to be "stars". They see the whole process as a stage that they can eventually turn into a high-paying gig on Fox and a couple of fear mongering books.

    What a hoot listening to the rants of Ted and and the ever-present liberal attack dog, Seazen. While both are good writers they miss the point. Ted points out that KY Sen McConnell predicted that Obama was going to be a first termer. McConnell's big mistake was taking Obama at his word that he would limit himself to one term if he failed to turn the economy around. Now we all know that was a lie and McConnell bought into it. The economy was never a topic of concern with the media as it would have been if a George Bush was trying to get reelected. So the fawning KoolAde drinking voters who are mostly clueless about the economy as long as their free stuff keeps coming, will continue to elect santa clause until they someday end up with coal in their stockings. It will be too late for them and us by then. If Kentucky elects Ashley Judd it won't be so bad. Most of us have seen her naked and she is great to look at. Why should we start taking our politicians seriously anyway? Another liberal who needs to have her words scripted. Obama will show her how to read the prompters.

      Sorry, but your true self is really starting to come through in these recent posts. First of all, the economy was completely in the tank and has, in fact, been turned around. That was not some simple task that anyone with any sense would expect to occur in a flash. Employment, housing, the stock market have been showing steady improvement since his policies began to take hold. The strange comment about the media, the economy and "if George Bush was trying to get elected" conflates too many memes to even begin to get a handle on. "Clueless about the economy" is severe projection and probably just a place holder to use before the comment about Ashley Judd and "most of us have seen her naked." Fact is, most of us don't troll the net looking for pictures of naked women. And if you are a public official who is serious about you have to say and know that the whole world is listening, it might be a good idea to have a script rather than winging it. Teleprompters are no different than written pages on the lectern. It is just a tool that folks have been using for the past 10 years.

    Looks like you got me on the Reagan thing, but did you also get the point that politicians will change whatever they have to to get elected? You are coming along nicely. Just saying

    Washington DC and LA California need to be wiped off the face of the earth. Hollywood is just as immoral as DC. Won't be going to any more movies of Ashley Judd.

  8. Rifraffe says:

    Judd is a fine actress and I love her work and all you have to do is go to the movies to see her in all her splendor. Trolling the internet for naked ladies seazen? Really? Hmmmm. Interesting, but it fits. Nevertheless, the lovely Ms. Judd, without her words scripted as she is used to having, can't even figure out if she is from Tennessee or Kentucky. Poor thing. But who cares, right? As long as she is for Obama. With her support, the economy will contiue to get stronger and stronger and then we will have a full blown recovery and we all see our property values restored and our 401k and IRA be worth something again and the country won't go bankrupt becasue all the spending and borrowing and printing of money will have worked! The deficit will be down to where it was when Bush was president. Just like you dreamed it would! Oh Obama! You are the man! You liberals are so smart!. Pass the KoolAde. I need a drink.

    I am a Kentucky voter who will NOT vote for Ms. Judd. Is that the best that the Dem's can do?
