Seems like Will & Grace really did have an effect on Joe Biden.

Good ol' Uncle Joe.

It does the heart good to hear the Vice President of the United States giving a shout-out to "an old butt buddy" before a large Iowa crowd.

While this is almost certainly one of Joe Biden's patented speaking goofs, I does in a way make me excited for a day, hopefully in the not-so-distant future, when politicians will be proud to point out their actual dalliances, same-sex or otherwise, for all the world to see. We're getting there, folks.
