Rove’s Group Rips Ashley Judd as a 'Radical Hollywood Liberal'

By    |   Wednesday, 06 Feb 2013 12:36 PM

Ashley Judd — who’s fought off killers, unhinged war veterans and frisky suitors in her movies — faces a new nemesis as she considers a Democratic run for office in real life: Karl Rove.

The top GOP policy advisor’s American Crossroads, a Super PAC fundraising group, has spent $10,000 to produce a video ripping the 44-year-old actress as a “radical Hollywood liberal.’’

Judd is mulling a face-off against Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell next year, although she hasn’t yet made a commitment.

But Rove’s group, which spent tens of millions in donor money during last year’s presidential campaign, is wasting no time in getting the word out as to what it thinks of her.

The video, called “Ashley’s Story,” pokes fun for being a self-identified liberal “radical” who boasts she is “committed to President Obama,” according to CBS News.

It also slams her for identifying Tennessee as her “home,” even though she’d be running in Kentucky.

At the start of the video, which has been released online, Judd is shown waxing poetic about the Obama Administration.

“I am committed to President Obama and Vice President Biden. I think he’s a brilliant man. He’s now able to flower more as the president I knew he could be,” the brown-haired beauty says.

She is also heard calling herself a “radical” and makes a cheeky reference to “hillbillies who golf.”

A narrator concludes: “Her own grandmother says she’s a Hollywood liberal, but isn’t that what we need? Ashley Judd: an Obama-following, radical Hollywood liberal who’s right at home here in Tennessee–I mean Kentucky.”

The actress — whose movies include “Kiss the Girls,” “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood” and “De-Lovely” and starred in the TV series “Missing” — is the daughter of country star Naomi Judd.

Aside from her Hollywood career, Judd has been involved with numerous humanitarian and human rights groups including “Women for Women International” and “Equality Now.”
