Mitch McConnell Staff Go After Ashley Judd… And Other News

Ashley Judd and McConnell

Busted! A secret tape recorded during a Mitch McConnell strategy meeting revealed the Senator and his aides mocking Ashley Judd and her multiple mental disorders.

The staffers are overheard discussing opposition research they could use against the actress. Aside from the obvious Obama-loving, gay marriage supporting, environmentalist crap, staffers wanted to go after her troubles with suicide and depression. Someone on the tape is heard saying:

“She’s clearly, this sounds extreme, but she is emotionally unbalanced. I mean it’s been documented. Jesse can go in chapter and verse from her autobiography about, you know, she’s suffered some suicidal tendencies. She was hospitalized for 42 days when she had a mental breakdown in the ’90s.”

Although Ashley Judd has since decided not to run for McConnell’s senate seat, his campaign staff are furious about the leaked tape and have asked the FBI to investigate how Mother Jones obtained the recording. Sounds like someone on his staff is a secret Double Jeopardy fan. Politico

At least 37 people are killed and 850 injured after a 6.3 magnitide earthquake hit in southwest Iran, near the country’s only nuclear plant. Luckiy, the state media says the plant was not damaged.

PenisDriving and masturbating don’t mix. Three women testified last week in the trial of former Mount Carmel, Tennessee Vice-Mayor William Blakely, who is charged with exposing himself to multiple women while driving at over 90 miles an hour. Blakely would honk or wave at women to get their attention then proceed to masturbate while behind the wheel. Says one witness: “He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating”. In some instances he would even go so far as to hang his genitals out of the car window.  Blakely has been charged with indecent exposure, reckless endangerment, and criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault.

Pablo NerudaPoet Pablo Neruda is spinning in his grave. Well, no, actually his remains are lying on a table in Chile’s Legal Medical Services headquarters in Santiago, waiting to be examined. 40 years after his death, Neruda’s body was dug up to check claims by a former chauffeur that the Nobel Prize-winning poet didn’t die of prostate cancer but was instead killed by government agents shortly after the 1973 overthrow of his friend, President Salvador Allende. Tests are being carried out to detect toxic substances but the forensic team won’t announce their findings until next week. Los Angeles Times

KenyattaUhuru Kenyatta, who is currently charged with crimes against humanity, was sworn in as President of Kenya today. His best qualification? Having ‘Kenya’ in his name. Kenyatta’s running mate, William Ruto was also sworn in and coincidently has also been charged by the international court with crimes against humanity. They make a great team! The swearing in consisted of a full day of pageantry “with the who’s who of Africa in attendance.” Wait, who’s the who’s who of Africa? New York Times
