Judd: ‘I Have Been Raped Twice, So I Think I Can Handle Mitch McConnell’

A March 9 piece in the Huffington Post had this interesting quote from the prospective Kentucky Democrat Senate candidate (via Daily Caller):

Judd made her intentions clear at a private dinner last month at Brown’s Louisville home. Asked if she was tough enough to take on McConnell and the GOP national attack machine, Judd reportedly answered, “I have been raped twice, so I think I can handle Mitch McConnell.”

It’s hard to imagine say, Michele Bachmann, saying something like that about a potential Democrat opponent in the state (Al Franken?), and it not receiving more media attention.
