Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell apparently has a sense of humor about Jon Stewart’s propensity to offer comparisons between the Kentucky Republican and a turtle.

Asked whether it hurt his feelings when he saw “The Daily Show” host portray him over and over as a turtle, Mr. McConnell said, “I loved it.”

“I ended up carrying 110 out of 120 counties,” Mr. McConnell told CNBC’s John Harwood. “I won by 15 points. And I beat a 35-year-old woman among women. I’ve been elected to the position I hold now by my colleagues unanimously multiple times. It’s nice to be approved by the people that count.”
