"The most senior Republican in the US Senate presided over a meeting of his top staff at which they discussed how to attack the actor Ashley Judd, a potential challenger to his seat, as suicidal and emotionally unbalanced, it was claimed on Tuesday.

Mother Jones magazine published a secret recording of an opposition research meeting between Mitch McConnell and his senior aides that took place on 2 February, at a time when Judd was thought to be preparing the groundwork for a run against the powerful Kentucky senator.

Judd decided not to run citing the need to spend time with her family but for much of the past six months there had been intense speculation that she would seek to enter politics.

Some conservative groups had already shot attack ads taking aim at her Hollywood career that painted her as an out-of-touch elitist liberal.

Mother Jones's tape reveals that McConnell was at a meeting where Judd was discussed in brutal terms. "I assume most of you have played the, the game Whac-A-Mole? This is the Whac-A-Mole period of the campaign when anybody sticks their head up, do them out," McConnell says at the start of the 12-minute tape."

just another tick on the back of America.
