One of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s first campaign swings at his Democratic opponent: A rap-like video filled with one-second shots of Alison Lundergan Grimes reciting her name, or the word “me.”

In between, comes this chorus, complete with old-time disc jockey record scratching: “What rhymes with Alison Lundergan Grimes? Not ready for prime time. Sticks to party line. Left wing mime.”

The video, posted on YouTube and reported by Roll Call, wraps with a jamming President Obama next to a dancing Ellen DeGeneres — whose head is covered by an enlarged face shot of Ms. Grimes.

Ms. Grimes, Kentucky’s secretary of state, announced Monday her campaign run for Mr. McConnell’s Senate seat.
