Default On Election Night in Boston, Joe Biden congratulated the wrong Marty Walsh

Once again, reality beats out the "Off-Topic, Bizarre, and Jokes" forum...

...and also once again, it's the usual suspect...

On Election Night in Boston, Joe Biden congratulated the wrong Marty Walsh

Quote:
Moments before taking the stage at the Park Plaza Hotel to celebrate his close victory over City Councilor John Connolly, Boston mayor-elect Marty Walsh took phone calls from major dignitaries including President Barack Obama and Mayor Tom Menino.

Reporters waiting for his speech were grumpy that Walsh was running late but one VIP did not delay Walsh's arrival on stage: Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden initially called former Ted Kennedy staffer Marty Walsh to congratulate and started the phone call saying "You son of a gun!" The mixup is a common occurrence for the lesser known former staffer according to those with knowledge of the phone call.

Biden later called the correct Walsh but missed him and left a voicemail congratulating him on his win in the race according to Walsh.

And just think he is just one heart beat away from sitting in the White House.

I like Joe. Even Marty thought it was funny and said he knows about 8 Marty Walsh's himself.

You almost have to. I mean, you'll probably go to hell if it's found out you hate the mentally challenged.
