Bipartisan Congressional Kumbaya Moment Gets Damn Awkward [VIDEO]

Congressional Kumbaya Vine Video

There were a lot of primary elections last night, but the fine politicians in Congress didn’t let that get in the way of a…well, bizarre moment at the Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony. That’s a bipartisan event where Americans are honored for outstanding achievements. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King were posthumously awarded this year, and the ceremony finished with leading Congressional figures holding hands and singing “We Shall Overcome.”

Nobody seemed particularly comfortable. This fine Vine video pans from John Boehner to Harry Reid to Mitch McConnell to Nancy Pelosi–and then ends on Carl Levin, who’s the  senior United States Senator from Michigan, and who sure as hell seems to suddenly regret ever agreeing to hold hands with Nancy Pelosi.
