Anybody else watch Biden swearing in senators?

It was good to see Senator "Very Cute" (Sherrod Brown) with John Glenn behind him.

And the very lovely and talented Elizabeth Warren.

1. Biden is a piece of work

The mother of one of the rethugs came up and he said "Hi Mom!" Gave her a hug and then said "I'm Joe Biden". He just hugged her again after the family picture.

6. It says US Senate mock swearing in

Why mock? Is it not the real swear in?

7. The real swearing is done by the Speaker. I think "fuck" is his favorite.

17. Just so we're clear

I wasn't being serious. I think you knew that (going by your smily), but I want to be sure.

8. This one could be the photo-op version

They were supposed to have been done at noon (maybe done en masse?).

Biden is the President of the Senate as VP.

10. Biden did the official swearing in ceremony in the Senate chambers,

but you cant take pictures there, so they do a photo op after.

13. Yes. It made me cry.

As I was watching and listening to his kind and thoughtful words as he greeted the families, I had to think that if it wasn't for this man and the work he did a few hours ago, my small but important 401 k would have been dust yesterday morning. The money we put into SS all of our lives and a few pension sheckles are all many of us retirees have. Thank God for people like Joe who understand this.

14. I wanted to see Tammy Baldwin being sworn in, but my C-SPAN2 isn't working for some reason....

and could only watch what little Senate coverage there was on the regular news channels. Dang it.

15. I'm talking about the real swearing in --it was on CSPAN2.

In the Senate Chamber. Shortly after the were called to order by Biden and then a prayer and then Leahy hit the chair.

They came up in groups of four or five.

Saw "AMTRAK Baggage Handler #1" (movie reference) And he wasn't nominated for an Oscar? Sacre bleu!!!
