Karl Rove, the modern day ‘Faust’ of the Republican Party is spending hundreds of thousands campaigning for Mitch McConnell’s reelection bid in Kentucky in 2014. What makes this strange, is no one has officially challenged his seat.
Rove, the puppet master behind the George W. Bush Presidency, is obviously fearful that the most unpopular Senator in the country could lose. His Super PAC, ‘American Crossroads’, aired a TV ad on Wednesday titled “Ashley’s Story”. It contains derogatory film clips about 44 year old actress Ashley Judd.
Presently airing only on the internet, he has promised more ads will follow. At this point Ms. Judd has only talked about the possibility of running for the Senate, she has not formerly declared herself a candidate. Last night on FOX news he explained the purpose of his early campaign: “She is not going to be able to wait until the screenwriters from California and the producers make her look good.”
Rove was criticized about the 2012 election when results showed that not one single candidate supported by his PAC won their election bid. His open criticism of the TEA party, and choices of poorly qualified candidates, hand- picked by him, contributed to his failure.
His strategy is to depict Ms. Judd as a potential candidate who lacks the qualifications for the office, and that she is not serious about the duties it would require. His style of 100% negative ads helped “W” win two elections, and he’s hoping it will work with the people of Kentucky.
As for Ms. Judd, her response was relayed to the Washington Post by her camp: “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans.”
