When the vice president says something ridiculous, that is a gaffe, and when the president looks pissed about it, that is also a gaffe, and Barack Obama is sorry for everything, says Joe Biden.
Apparently this whole gaffe situation is just made unbearably terrible by our notoriously volatile president (*cough*) hinting at Biden's mistakes in public, ever, so he apologized this one time, Biden would like everyone to know, via 60 Minutes.
Biden added on the show, "much of the ridicule of me is well deserved.”
Which is true, but we're already tired of thinking about it, and about Joe Biden's ego. Joe Biden is what you call a "high maintenance" boyfriend.
