Say what you will about Ed Perlmutter. The 1st term Democrat representing Colorado's 7th District really knows how to cartwheel for votes, as you can see in the video above.
It's unclear why the crowd at this Memorial Day Parade in the mean streets of Commerce City started chanting "Cartwheel! Cartwheel!" as the Perlmutter procession passed. Is this a signature Perlmutter move? Like Bill Ritter doing the robot or Mike Coffman busting out the worm on the campaign trail? Either way, the 56-year-old Perlmutter pulls two cartwheels in a row with the grace an limberness of a fifth-grade girl at recess. Impressive. Kinda creepy, but impressive.
