Winning Indy Isn’t So Great If You’re Mr. Ashley Judd

Worst thing about Scottish Formula One race car driver Dario Franchitti winning the Indianapolis 500 over the weekend: He’s married to the insufferably annoying, preachy lefty actress, Ashley Judd.
If you saw him just after he won, you’d have thought Judd won the Indy 500, not the race car driver, who will forever (as long as he’s married to her) be known as Mr. Ashley Judd. Sad: The first Scotsman since the ’60s to win Indy, but yet completely eclipsed and upstaged by his B-list actress in-your-face wife.
Best thing about his win: This hilarious sub-headline from USA Today that says it all. Yup, we know who wears the pants in this couple . . .

I can only speak for myself.
I’m an auto racing fan and I don’t watch movies at the theater because they’re mostly trash. I prefer to pick and choose at the rental store.
I wouldn’t recognize Ashley Judd if I saw her walking down the street. I would certainly recognize Dario Franchitti.
It was bad enough 2 years ago when nobody noticed that Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 all because Danica Patrick led some laps late in the race. At least Patrick was racing!
Looking for truth, honesty and sincerety in the mainstream news media is like looking for a needle in a haystack. All too often, they’re just shovelling liberal orthodoxy down our throats. Your column provided another fine example of that.

So let me get this straight, because they focused on Ashley Judd, they are “shovelling liberal orthodoxy down our throats”? Are you freaking kidding me?
The only thing this situation proves is that our society is WAY TOO OBSESSED with “famous” people. This is why on all the major “news” outlets there is often more coverage on things like Anna Nicole Smith than there is about the war in Iraq.
Our news outlets are quickly becoming tabloid news outlets. This is another sad example of that.
And for the record, I agree in principal with the article. I think it is offensive to the sport and the winner of the race that there is more attention being payed to a spouse rather than people actually participating (and for that matter, they tend to do the same thing when she attends Kentucky basketball games. No wonder she doesn’t have a career anymore, she’s too busy being a fan).

Dario didn’t look too happy when Ashley jumped in front of everyone else to smooch him as he sat semi-stunned (at winning) in his car. She must have recognized that look, as she quickly backed away and into the crowd. But let’s face it, from momma Naomi down, the Judds are…er, unusual. None of them has grown up. Ashley gets the attitude naturally, and being a Hollowoodite no doubt adds to it.

I don’t care for her politics but Ashley Judd is a good actress (although she has had not many great roles) and she sure is nice to look at.
