The Bitsblog Nina Burleigh Award, for being a political whore goes to Ashley Judd.   Background on Burleigh, from Wikipedia, 1998:

“I would be happy to give him[B.J. Clinton] a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”


“I said it (back in 1998, but a good quote has eternal life) because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment. These men had neither the personal experience nor the credentials to know sexual harassment when they saw it, nor to give a good goddamn about it if they did. The insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”

Feminists don’t care how a man acts.  Rather they only care about his political positions.

Ms Judd is a feminist, from Rush Limbaughm on Inauguration Day, speaking of her President:

I am a naaaaasty woman. (cheers) I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but I feel Hitler in these streets. A mustache traded for a toupee. Nazis renamed the cabinet. I am not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, (cheers) like your wet dreams infused with your own genes but, yeah, I’m a nasty woman. A loud, vulgar proud woman.

Limbaugh speaking of a Judd encounter with Harvey Weinstein:

Weinstein was staying at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills and she got a meeting, long time ago, was a budding actress. She was gonna get to meet Harvey Weinstein. She gets up there and he’s in a bathrobe and asks if he can either give her a massage or if she wants to watch him take a shower. And she said it’s Harvey Weinstein, I can’t insult him, but I gotta find the fastest way out of there. So she was sexually harassed. And Weinstein is a prototypical liberal and you’ll find pictures of him and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton all over the place.

So Ms Judd feels free to insult her President, as is her right, but she found herself unwilling to offend a sexual predator, a man who might give her a role in a movie.   Ms Judd may choose to describe herself as nasty, her right.  I call her weak.

As to Mr. Weinstein either he become expendable, as former successful movie producer, or is collateral damage in the attempt to kneecap any future presidential run for Mrs. Clinton.
