Jon Stewart Show

FRANKFORT, Ky. (CNN) - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has created a new internet phenomenon and it involves one of our own Kentucky senators.

It's called "McConnelling," after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

It all started after the McConnell campaign posted an online video that's set to music and shows Mitch McConnell smiling and campaigning.

On his Comedy Central show, Stewart set the video to other songs to make fun of Senator McConnell.

When asked how he feels about the concept of "McConnelling" the Senator said that he believes it is important to have some fun sometimes when out in the field.

Stewart has encouraged his viewers to experiment with other songs and post their videos on Twitter using the hashtag #MCCONNELLING.
