Photo of the Day

Vice President Joe Biden holding a water gun, while soaking wet and surrounded by kids who are also holding water guns

Every year, Vice President Joe Biden holds a big picnic at his house, to which he invites members of the media and their families. This is a picture from that event on Saturday, during which he got into "an epic waterfight" with all the kids. There are more pictures at the link: I love the one of Biden holding court with all the kids around him. So funny.

CNN: "The vice president distributed high-powered water guns to the children gathered at his official residence and identified notable journalists for them to pursue. ... Biden's team of warrior children then turned their weapons on the Vice President himself. Before it was over, Biden was super-soaked and smiling."

When I showed these pictures to Iain, he quipped: "Smart idea. It's harder to vilify a man who's been nice to your children."

Biden: *wink!*
