>>> joe biden got caught up in the moment last night and was trying to do the right thing. so he called marty walsh to congratulate him on winning election as the next mayor of boston. the vice president yelled into the phone, you son of a gun , marty, you did it! sadly, he got the wrong marty walsh who was thrilled to be talking to the vice president of the united states . in fairness, the marty walsh who was on his couch with his wife when the cell phone rang was an aide for ted kennedy for years and even he says he knows at least eight other marty walshs in boston.
