In late May Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd in New Hampshire "you pay me a lot of money." It wasn't meant as a joke at the time. But it was supposed to be a joke when he told a graduating high school class in Florida on Monday that becoming vice president was a consolation prize he received in lieu of never becoming a baseball star.
"As a kid, this was my dream, standing at home plate at a major league ballpark," he said from the podium in front of the pitcher's mound. "Not as a speaker, but as a batter. But I had to settle for becoming vice president."
Hee hee hee! Ho ho ho!
