I know, dog bites man.
Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that “it was worth it.”
After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, “let me say to those ‘quote survivors,’ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely – just to hear each of you speak. You’re truly, truly inspiring.”
Let’s see. An eight-year old boy was blown to pieces. Other people will spend the rest of their lives with prosthetic limbs (because the massive NSA surveillance state couldn’t keep tabs on two radical Muslim immigrants the Russian Government warned us about). But it was worth it because Joe Biden Got to Hear a Speech.
And the $100,000 in welfare benefits the Boston Bombers received… also, totally worth it.
