Keystone State Democrats deserve high praise for a closely fought victory in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, where Conor Lamb holds a slight lead over Republican candidate Rick Saccone.

Lamb may be a hero, but he wasn’t the viral superstar of Tuesday night’s election. That honor goes to Steve Kornacki, MSNBC’s manic maestro of the moment whose rapid vote-tallying and hilarious multi-tasking remind some social media users of SpongeBob.

Watch for Kornacki’s Mr. Bean move, when he nervously sashays off-camera before returning to point at a monitor like Pharaoh banishing Moses in The Ten Commandments.
