Hollywood actorvist Ashley Judd hasn't even committed to running as a Democrat against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for his Kentucky seat. But GOP mastermind Karl Rove's American Crossroads group has gone after her in a recently released attack ad.
How'd she respond to this taste of what it's like running for office?
"Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn't been made yet," her publicist wrote in a statement, reports the Washington Post.
The $10,000 ad, which was released on the Web, quotes Judd saying she is a radical and paints her as a yes-woman for President Barack Obama. It also questions her Kentucky creds because her primary residence is outside Nashville. "It just clicked: Tennessee is home," Judd says in a clip in the ad. She is a Kentucky native and has talked about living on both sides of the state line. It even quotes her grandma calling her a "Hollywood liberal."
