Video: The Most Awkward Moment In Congressional History?

Today, political leaders joined together – literally, hand-in-hand – to present a Congressional Gold Medal to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

So why would such a joyous occasion such as this force our fearless Congressional leaders to make awkward faces such as this?

Or this?

Or even this?

Naked DC explains:

Every year, Congress gives out a select number of Congressional Gold Medals to citizens who have made an impact on American life. Today, Congress awarded one to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Dr. King’s family accepted on his behalf and Congress was forced to join hands and sing “We Shall Overcome.”

Perhaps the best moment of any of our lives happened next.

Here is that moment, in all it’s awkward glory…
