Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Wednesday reacted to a possible Senate run by Ashley Judd by saying that the actress was so “damn liberal” that she did not even belong in the United States.
Earlier this week, Politico reported that Judd “is seriously exploring” a bid against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in 2014 or possibly waiting until 2016 to take on Paul.
Conservative WMAL radio hosts Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor asked Paul to react to the news on Wednesday.
“I heard she lives in Scotland, I thought she was running for Parliament,” Paul quipped to the radio hosts delight. “I think she’d fit right in, in the English Parliament.”
“She’s way damn too liberal for our country, for our state,” he added. “She hates our biggest industry, which is coal. So, I say, good luck bringing the ‘I hate coal’ message to Kentucky.”
Boy, Rand here is almost taking this news personally, I'd have to say. He's got a valid point about anyone even remotely environmental getting murdered at the polls here in Friends Of Coal license plate country, but I sure as hell would love to see her take on either Mitch or Rand.
But Rand here, well, he sure is making a lot of noise, isn't he. What does it matter to him if Judd is planning on running in 2014 versus McConnell and Rand is supposedly leaving the Senate headed for the White House in 2016?
One has to wonder.
