The video was mocked as a curiosity in several media outlets -- from “The Daily Show” to the New York Times -- and seemed to validate the perception of McConnell as dull and a career politician. And then Internet parodies began pouring in. Some mixed shots of McConnell with vintage television or film scenes. Others used ironic music to accompany the footage.

"Mitch The Bitch" mocked by Jon Stewart and The NYT? Looks like Matt Bevin is not the only one who used this ad to McConnell's DISadvantage. I didn't like the way Bevin's team handled it. They made it look more like a McConnell Ad. But, what do I know?

"....dull and career politician." Looks like the McConnell team pissed into the wind on this one.

“please consider chipping-in a few bucks to our campaign so we can keep Mitch rolling to victory.”

Sorry, no can do, Mitch.

However, as a consolation prize I will consider chipping in a few bucks to have someone ride your sorry rear end out of DC on a rail.

Excellent point. It wouldn’t surprise me to hear that Harry was one of Mitch’s largest contributors.

Indeed - the considerable financial assistance and support he has given to the Democrat in the race, Alison Lundergan Grimes, is evidence enough of that.

As mentioned in the article, the likely point of this video being released was to provide stock footage to outside groups to pick up and use clips of it in their own ads that McConnell’s campaign cannot coordinate with directly. That’s a pretty common practice in this day and age.

The ‘Muzack’ in this ad quickly becomes a deafening din. It’s like Shopping Mall ‘White Noise’ on overly large speakers, for a small space. Volume cranked way up, all the better to EXCITE you.
