If there really is a #waronwomen, Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes might just come from one of its founding families. Ms. Grimes is the heir to the Hugh Jass burger fortune, at least in theory, and a legacy that stems from her family's Kentucky burger joint, whose menu celebrates the finer things in life, like giant, juicy female booty.
Hugh Jass Burgers -- say it out loud to get the joke -- has menu items like "Charlotte's Rack, sure to be voted biggest rack" named after Grimes' mom and "Abby's Hugh Jass," a burger named after her sister. They also sell souvenirs like an apron with "Check Out My Buns" emblazoned across it.
The restaurant's approach has raised eyebrows, especially since Grimes' camp accused the GOP of sexism.
"I am the Kentucky woman who my Republican colleagues in this state so gentlemanly refer to as an empty dress," Grimes said.
When we tried to ask Grimes about her family's use of double entendre, she refused to answer, letting her security detail lead her away from reporters.
