Shut Up And Act, Ashley!

I loved Joe Gerth's description of Ashley Judd's big campaign stop for Bruce Lunsford:

The Democrats might want to brief Ashley Judd a little better the next time they bring her to Kentucky for campaign events. She spoke -- largely about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama -- at a get-out-the-vote rally Saturday at Iroquois Park in Louisville.

Apparently, the Kentucky native and actress didn't get the memo about Bruce Lunsford's wealth or that McConnell has been mentioning in television ads that Lunsford has 11 homes.

"Sen. (John) McCain has seven homes," she said, talking about the Republican presidential nominee. "Someone with seven homes is not going to be in touch with what it's like to be poor in the United States."

Lunsford was in the wings at the Iroquois Amphitheater; his staffers in the audience cringed.
Afterward, Lunsford said about half of his property is for investments, not to live in.

Like none of McCain's properties are for investment.
