After months and months of Ashley Judd teasing that she might run for Senate in her home state of Kentucky, she tweeted a today that she’s not running and if you want to see her in a political role, go see her as First Lady in that Olympus Has Fallen mess. My fourth favorite Judd (after Naomi, Wynonna and Judd Nelson) wrote this:
Thank you for these months of remarkable support & encouragement, for your voices, exhortations, & prayers. I have decided. After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities & energy at this time need to be focused on my family. Regretfully, I am currently unable to consider a campaign for the Senate. I have spoken to so many Kentuckians over these last few months who expressed their desire for a fighter for the people & new leader. While that won’t be me at this time, I will continue to work as hard as I can to ensure the needs of Kentucky families are met by returning this Senate seat to whom it rightfully belongs: the people & their needs, dreams, and great potential. Thanks for even considering me as that person & know how much I love our Commonwealth. Thank you! Thank you for the outpouring of good wishes. Thanks for having so much confidence both in me & that we could work together.
Ashley Judd is separated from her hot piece of a husband and she doesn’t have any kids, so I’m guessing that by “focused on my family” she means that she’s going to tell her inner thoughts to her therapy dog and get drunk in the front row at Dancing in the Has-Beens while watching Wynonna Judd. (Actually, all that sounds better than running for Senate.)
Everything I know about the Fifth Amendment, I learned from Double Jeopardy, so Ashley Judd can continue to educate the masses about important politics stuff through her movies.
