We like a good social-media-twitter-hashtag-viral-mashup-video-Mitch-McConnell-campaign-ad prank as much as the next guy, so imagine our joy and wonderment when Thursday night's "The Daily Show" should offer exactly that:  #McConnelling. 

 And what is #McConnelling? Glad you asked, and so is Jon Stewart who is about to take a week off and in the interim would like you to think about songs (preferably with lyrics referring to eyes) that can be tracked to a recent Mitch McConnell campaign ad. 

 He'll select the best at some point -- much sooner  than later, hopefully.  And yes, it's gone viral. Check out Thursday night's story about how this all came about -- and wonder whether the McConnell campaign team is suddenly a little bit nervous about what it, or rather Jon Stewart, hath wrought. Or whether it's thrilled with all the free media.

Really, this could cut either way...
