Team McConnell Does the Harlem Shake

In a shocking turn, the chairmanship for the Senate Harlem Shake Caucus is still up for grabs.

Last week, Republican wunderkind Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted a simple question: "If I put a [Harlem Shake] video 2gether in the Senate who should be in it?"

On Wednesday, however, Rubio's shake was scooped by Team Mitch. The campaign office of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., posted its own version of the ubiquitous Harlem Shake videos. It is important to note that it is the first official congressional Harlem Shake video to date.

Whether McConnell can wrest the Harlem Shake Caucus from Rubio's grasp is up for speculation, but his office has cleared the way for other Senate offices to make similar videos.

It is only a matter of time before the dream of a bipartisan Senate-wide Harlem Shake video comes to pass.

Correction: A previous version of this post misstated which of McConnell's office posted the video. It was his campaign team.
