UPDATE: NYT tonight says McConnell has sense of humor and his site has posted best of of these.
Earlier: Jon Stewart loves to do his Yertle the Turtle imitation of a certain U.S. Senator and last night he couldn't get enough of a new TV ad for Sen. Mitch McConnell's troubled Senate re-election run. He kept running one segment when Mitch just keeps smiling, in different scenes, as music plays--with Jon's team substituting different fun tunes. At the end he asked people to post their own versions under #McConnelling. My original contributions: With the "True Detective" theme and the Turtles', "It Ain't Me Babe."
Here's what the YouTube search discovers so far, and one with the immortal Rick Astley below plus "If I Only Had a Brain."
