So, that happened. Vice President Biden administered the ceremonial oath to Secretary of State John “JK tweeting” Kerry.

And much Biden-ing occurred.
RT @jonward11: Biden, introducing Kerry as Sec of State, says, “I’ve been pushing this for a long time.”

1 difference: no president O or VP Biden RT @jonward11: Biden laments Kerry’s 2004 loss: “How different the world might be today.”

Heh. But Biden doubled down on that idiocy. Hey, if Kerry had won, maybe Biden would be Secretary of State! You know, a real job. Instead of Vice President.
Some good Biden-ing happening at Kerry’s swearing in. Says if Kerry was elected president, he might have “gotten a real job” and become SoS.

And, of course, he flubbed a line.
Biden stumbled and repeated the line: “…the duties of he office on which I’m about to enter.”No harm. Kerry really sworn in last Friday.

At least no one was “breaking his flow.” So, there’s that.
