You know, Puffy, maybe the dog is trying to tell you something.
Ashley Judd fueled chatter about a possible Senate bid – and gave Republicans fodder to use against her – with a quirky, informal speech on women’s health in Washington on Friday.
Speaking in a stream of consciousness style, the actress talked about her personal development as an activist and living as a “three time survivor of rape.”
Judd, 44, has been publicly flirting with a bid for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s seat representing her native state of Kentucky.
Her speech was peppered with a series of eccentric asides that raised some political pundits’ eyebrows.
“I have a dog that’s on hunger strike,” she said at one point. “He only wants cheese.”
She sounds insane. In other words, a model Democrat.
She also touched on religion and the challenge of maintaining her faith, saying that working with suffering people can be “like a spiritual death.”
