This video of politicians holding hands and singing is awkward to say the least! The occasion is certainly a day worthy of remembrance but the line up of congressional leaders holding hands was enough to make just about any independent minded American queezy. From Rep. Nancy Pelosi holding hands with Sen. Mitch McConnell holding hands with Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid holding hands with a yes, crying Speaker of the House John Boehner, this video may be the best representation of people who do not embody the principles of Dr. King and have consistently voted against civil rights.
Congressional leaders of both parties come together to hold hands and sing “We Shall Overcome” at the commemoration ceremony celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
