The video of Washington gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna busting out the remarkably famous "Gangnam Style" dance at a Washington State Korean Association event started making the rounds late yesterday. I first saw it via Jordan Schrader of The News Tribune, though it was likely elsewhere by that point. Before long, everyone was talking about it.
Most importantly, despite his nerdy appearance, Rob McKenna seems to have some noticeable groove in his soul. When I heard the video existed, I expected a clip of McKenna rigidly faking along in a tightly crafted attempt to woo voters while palpably doing everything within his power to avoid looking dumb. But that's definitely not what this video is.
At times, McKenna does look dumb. And he doesn't seem to care - which is halfway awesome, considering the choreographed performance politics has become.
