Ashley Judd is raising cash for Tennessee Democrats now, trashing the Republican-run state government in an email to the party faithful.

We've all had enough of these anti-woman, anti-worker, and anti-Obama legislators running amok in Nashville, and it's time to restore some balance, common sense and decency to our government.

The problem with this pitch is that her criticisms apply not only to Republicans but to all but a handful of Democratic lawmakers as well. Many Democrats vote against women's rights and organized labor, and almost all of them run from President Obama like a deadly infectious disease. Even House Democratic leader Craig Fitzhugh, just the other day, told The Tennessee Journal that he would steer clear of taking sides in this year’s presidential race. Spoken like a true profile in courage.

Of course, it's easy to be bold in a fundraising email when you're not standing for election yourself. But from what we heard from Judd in Charlotte, she seems like a different kind of Democrat. We certainly need one.

Here's Judd's email to Democrats:

Dear [insert name],

I wanted to tell you what an honor it was to represent my fellow Tennesseans as a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. It was truly wonderful to meet with other delegates and discuss the future of the Democratic Party in Tennessee and how important this election is to all of our families, our children, and all Tennessee women.

While it's extremely important for us to help reelect President Barack Obama this November — and I'm working hard to make sure that happens — it's also vital that he has allies in Washington and our state legislature who will also work to move Tennessee and America forward.

That's why I'm speaking out. The Tennessee Democratic Party is working hard to elect great Democrats to the State House, State Senate, and Congress this November, and they need our support.

Will you join me in helping to elect Democrats in Tennessee with a donation of $25 or more today?

We've all had enough of these anti-woman, anti-worker, and anti-Obama legislators running amok in Nashville, and it's time to restore some balance, common sense and decency to our government.

Please join me in pitching in to help move Tennessee forward with a $25 show of support today.

Yours truly,

Ashley Judd
