Video: Ashley Judd Tells Rick Santorum He Has To Wait 72 Hours Before Terminating His Campaign

In the following video, the ladies of Funny or Die (including Ashley Judd, who is KILLING IT this week) take on Rick Santorum’s decision to terminate his campaign — by treating it like Santorum treats abortion. They shame him, they suggest that he was “asking for it,” they question his maturity to make the decision, they make him look at a sonogram of campaign clips and they make him listen to his campaign manager’s heartbeat.

Oh, and then they make him wait 72 hours.

In short, this is fucking amazing.

    Nevermind that these two issues are in different hemispheres; Ashley Judd is a stupid, ignorant dumbass. Congrats on being totally low class, hypocritical trash, Hollywood. Yet another reason you all suck.

    • Weston

      You know your satire is good when it pulls the trolls on first comment.

      Tara, great job on pointing out the insightful, but obvious fact that the two subjects are completely different. Have you heard of metaphor or analogy? Satire can use exaggerated metaphors to point out the ludicrous or ironic without discussing the topic directly.

      I would also argue that your use of a geographic analogy is misplaced. When you say different hemispheres I assume you mean to imply dramatically different or possibly opposite locations. The downside of this analogy though is that there can still be a lot of comparisons drawn between hemispheres. Take the Northern and Southern hemispheres for example, while the seasons occur at opposite times of the year both hemispheres’ weather and temperature cycles can be described in a seasons context, and thus seasonality can be an effective analogy for comparison….

    A person named Tara calling other’s low-class trash…interesting. Yeah, I went there. Personal attacks are fun!

    BTW, I especially liked the part of the video when Judd said she shouldn’t even be talking to Santorum about suspending his campaign because she has no idea what he’s going through- not sure how many men would understand that but hopefully it gets through.

  • Amy

    Totally brilliant.

  • Ebony

    Your comments are strong enough to lead me to believe you know her personally.
    FYI, you can’t call someone names and then call them “low class” on top of it. It nullifies your point…considering the fact that name calling is not very classy…

    Why are you so angry?

  • Kerry

    Oh, Ashley Judd, you are so clever. Let’s equate killing someone with ending a political run.

    The premise of this video is stupid and so is the outcome.

    • Babykiller

      aborting a pregnancy is not the same as killing someone.

      It’s just not.

    • CC

      Pretty much. Terrible analogy, unless the campaign manager is going to die as a result of the ending of Santorum’s campaign.
      Yeah, you can say that abortion is not ending a life… However, “pro-life” people believe it is which kind of makes this video irrelevant to anyone but those who are already “prochoice.”
      Furthermore, there probably is not a single person in this thread who agrees on when exactly life begins. Does life begin at first breath? Heartbeat? When pain is felt? When brainwaves can be detected?
      That said, I’m not a fan of Santorum in general. His comments on homosexuality make me cringe.

    • Emily

      Oh bite me Kerry. Freedom to NOT have the government run my body is pretty important to me, regardless of what politics anyone may have. That political run was making promises left and right about stopping women’s services like Planned Parenthood,which DOES save lives (at what point does the stopping of life saving medical services out weigh the much smaller scales amount of abortions they do perform?) – cancer screening, birth control (which is life saving to people who do not want to reproduce, or who medically should not). Also, why is the government involved in ANY kind of MEDICAL decision anyway? Oh hells no, get away from my uterus unless your hands are covered in KY and your name is Anthony Kedis.

  • MR

    So glad this idiot is gone from the presidential campaign – and the Republicans took care of it themselves. One down, Romney to go.

  • sheldon

    very well done… this should be made available on a grander scale.

  • ellen

    I simply had to respond to the very stupid babykiller comment that said aborting a pregnancy is not the same as killing a person. Really are you that dense or brainwashed that you dont realize that yes it is exactly the same. Killing is taking a life….abortion takes a life.

    • lexie

      But, ellen, abortion is NOT the same as killing a person. Are YOU that dense or brainwashed?

    • zs

      ellen… by the same token, having a period is killing ‘a life.’ Anyone who has ever had sex has possibly self-aborted a fertilized egg without even knowing it. And that’s FINE, because the aborted thing wasn’t a person, it was just bits inside an ACTUAL person’s body. You do know the difference between people – you know, you see them around you in the world and stuff – and cells inside someone’s uterus, right?

    • Your mom

      Funny story: a fertilized ovum is, in fact, A FERTILIZED OVUM. NOT A BABY, you genius, highly qualified microbiologist, you! I know that actually attempting to use that glob of barely functioning excrement you refer to as your brain is tough, but…it can make all the difference. Please, feel free to restrain your ignorance in the future. It can save lives!

  • Антон

    Karamba!aborting a pregnancy is not killing a child! He didn’t born yet. Learn medicine well!Nice video anyway =)

  • Jess

    Could thegloss.com not have been a wee bit more conscious of the content of the ad associated with this video post? Really? A sexy lady in high heels and tiny outfit selling a car? Way to be an advocate for seeing women in an equal light.

    • Jfo

      AGREE

  • It’s Funny

    Is it just me, or do most of these comments seem to be missing the point.

    This is about a woman’s right to control her own body, and how friggin’ ridiculous it is for a man to try and hijack that her choices. Not to put too fine a point on it, but a man should no more be in control of a woman’s choice about her body than Ashley Judd should be in control of Santorum’s choice about his campaign.

    So, what’s funny here is the part about all these woman telling rick Santorum what to do about his campaign. It’s not about abortion at all.

    • It’s Very Funny

      Um, “It’s Funny”- are you paying attention? It’s a spoof on the injustice of abortion restrictions, such as those pushed by Santorum. It’s not meant to be real but meant to mock exactly what you seem to agree with.

      Hello, wake up.

  • Jean Marie s

    Sorry but you all are so sad. Abortion is killing. For some women it is not a laughing matter. Sad–very sad!

  • ronny

    Talk about abortion, and not to be sacrilegious, if you really think about it, God is the greatest abortionist, every time there is a miscarriage

  • Obama needs to go

    I wonder how much Obama paid for that. Another attempt to brainwash women.

  • StubbleSpark

    She is a fucking idiot. The clip is unfunny and idiotic. What is wrong with her? Can she at least respectfully disagree with the reasonable view that unborn people are … people?

  • wood

    What and idiot , made there will be something missing next year like her show

  • Mark Adams

    I think Ms Judd should be thankful towards Santorum and people like him…. She might not have had a life to live.

  • Don Burd

    Funny how they always say that it’s not a person till it’s born, however……if a pregnant woman is murdered…it is then a woman AND her child…..two lives.

  • Patrish

    Well done!!!! I salute you for the brilliant satire! It deals so well with the arrogance of men who want to force women to have sex and then condemn them for not wanting to bear, willingly, the cosequences of the sex act. Loved it, Ladies!!!!

  • rita bouchard

    I grew up with a grandmother (on my dad’s side) who had 3 children out of wedlock, my mother told me if I ever got pregnant before I was married it would break my father’s heart. At 17 my boyfriend & I went to my mom and after telling my dad (he was unhappy but I was the little girl he always wanted) she took me to get birth control pills. After 1 experience it didn’t feel like love. Needless to say, after 2 weeks and just the 1 encounter he went out with another girl. At that time I felt like if it’s good for the goose,,,(casual sex) equality and all, I dated ended up married & divorced, no children. I met my husband at 23 yrs old, he had 3 children 8,11,&12. At age 33 I had high blood pressure 210/110 and could no longer take birth control pills. My boyfriend (we lived together 11 yrs. & married for 20) was not sure he wanted to start another family & I was sure I wouldn’t get pregnant and have to get married. My mother was on birth control pills after having a hysterectomy, she was told it was good for her heart. Subsequently she had 5 stents put in her groin, after a year they were blocked and she had a lower aortic bypass. She had a stent put in her heart and both carotid arteries cleaned out ending up with one blocked. So much for b.c.p. being good for your heart! At one time I believed in a woman’s right for abortion, luckily I didn’t have to have one & am not judging those that did. So many men & women use abortion as birth control and that makes me mad. I have never been pregnant but felt I wanted to be responsible, so responsible I had a tubal ligation. My father passed away before that. Today I have 3 step-grandkids that I got to keep every weekend. I got to feed them, bath them, and change their diapers I am their grandma.

  • Gee

    Terminating a human life is not the same as terminating a job Ashley – God will show you the truth one day.

  • Sandy Morman

    She’s ignorant…Ashley and crew…all ignorant. So ignorant that I’m not even going to share this because people with sense would think that I was ignorant for posting it! The death of a baby vs. an ending of a political campaign? Course none of these foolish women would’ve even carried a pregnancy that would’ve given then a child with disabilities…so what are we talking about here? HOLLYWOOD FOOLS. This is one of the reason’s that I’ve not watched TV for the longest. Nasty and ugly…inside and out!

  • Sandy

    Something else…IF there was any sense in this mess, for all you Pro-Murder freaks out there…how far do you believe Jehovah will go before you believe that life starts at conception? We’ve already got proof that a baby can be born at 20 weeks (1.2 lbs. and less than 12 inches long) and still live? We’ve 4D ultrasounds showing life in as little as 3 days? So? Hello? You must have a lot of HATE in your hearts to be able to murder a baby, with over 95% of abortions being due to lack of birth control (grow some, honey! And make a trip to the local drug store and buy some condoms, please!) and blame it on someone else…real brave and grown up of ya. Yea…

  • you too

    Wow…Weston is so smart!!! lololololololololololol!!! NOT! How ridiculously ignorant! Judd and cohorts are right down your alley, dude…go for it!

  • DaneMuhlig

    Abortion is murder in the womb and Jesus says murderers will go to Hell…so maybe that is funny! And Judd, who is a sexually immoral actress says, “PRAY??????????” Pray to whom Satan? Yes because God ain’t accepting a stupid, asinine pray to murder a baby in the womb! So pray to Satan and see where it gets you…a life of Hell on earth and Hell in the next life!
