Joe Biden was in New London, CT today, where he delivered his first (and hopefully last) commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy.

“You’re a really dull class. Come on, man. Is the sun getting to you?” Biden said after comparing the US Coast Guard with the US Navy. He added, “I would think when you have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy, to clap.

A few people in the crowd offered Joe an obligatory clap, to which America’s punchline Joe Biden replied, “All kidding aside, being here together is a victory in and of itself.”
