Vice President Joe Biden makes another gaffe but don't expect any coverage on the pro US Democratic Party BBC
When Marty Walsh won the Boston mayor's race, Vice President Joe Biden was quick to pick up the phone to congratulate him.
However the Marty Walsh who Biden had called wasn't the Marty Walsh who had been elected to succeed longtime Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.
The Marty Walsh who Biden had a was a former aide to the late US Senator Edward Kennedy.
If a Republican President, Vice President or senior figure had made such a gaffe it would be gleefully reported by the BBC as an example of right wing stupidity. However as Joe Biden is a Democratic Party Vice President, I confidently predict silence from the BBC on this story.
