Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: Kentucky Coal Miners Strike Back at Ashley Judd, No Good News for Democrats, The DOJ’s Unsupported Suit Against the Arizona Immigration Law.



Last month, in a speech to the National Press Club, actress Ashley Judd took a break from taking on Sarah Palin and set her sights on business practices in her home state.

There is no good news for the Democrats in this survey and analysis by James Carville and Stan Greenberg (h/t Taegan Goddard). For starters, they find a six-point lead for the GOP in their generic congressional poll. Republicans have the advantage on the economy and on jobs, a majority have an unfavorable view of Obama’s job performance (most of which sentiment is attributable to health care and jobs), more voters favor tax cuts over spending to stimulate the economy, and on and on it goes.
