Cupcakes and captains

Today is VP-Elect Joe Biden’s birthday. Pres-elect Obama delivered him some cupcakes.

Also today Capt. Beau Biden, Joe’s son, shipped out to Iraq to serve as an assistant Judge Advocate General (JAG) with the 261st Signal Brigade in the Delaware National Guard.

That’s a sucky birthday present. Best wishes to VP-Elect Joe Biden and, especially, to Capt. Beau Biden.

Can we bring ’em all home safe, please? Soon?
