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

    BOSTON — 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.

    I'm pretty sure you could blame a staffer rather than Joe for the problem.

    We gotta get Joe his own reality TV show. It'd be a hit.
