Here’s something adorable and yet just uncomfortable enough to qualify as funny. State Rep. Joe Radinovich (DFL-Crosby), newly elected from Minnesota’s Cuyuna Iron Range and Aitkin County, recently spoke to a McGregor first grade class. After receiving letters from the students after the visit, he recorded this video in which he announces his candidacy for first grade class president.
“You can’t just sit in class and learn math all day.”
Will this confuse the first graders? Almost certainly. Does it confuse me? Yes. I am glad he did this? Upon reflection, yes, but I don’t know why. If you’re playing at home, add to the fun by imagining that what the aide whispers to him later in the video is “SurveyUSA has you down 17 points to McKayla.”
