(LEX 18) — While Kentucky Sports Radio founder and former Hey Kentucky host Matt Jones mulls over his decision to run in the Democratic primary...he has found another way to fill his time.

Jones announced that he and Chris Tomlin are writing a story about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called "Mitch, Please!"

According to Jones the book is the story "of Kentucky and how our state has been forgotten while represented by one of the most powerful Senators in history." The book will have 120 stories, one for each county, involving McConnell.

While no one from McConnell's camp has responded, supporters of the Senate Majority Leader scoffed at the title.

"Every liberal’s consolation prize after getting stiffed by national Dems is to grift off McConnell’s name. The consistency is pretty funny," said Josh Holme. Holmes is a former McConnell campaign manager.

There is no word on when the book will be released.
