      No reason to go ballistic or pick on Joe for goofing around.  

      It's the photo op swear-in for families and friends.  The real one takes place on the floor of the Senate - the one with the families and kids is a re-enactment.  

      I love this one with our littlest Senator Murphy looking so solemn and serious - I expected him to say "I WILL!" as well as his dad :)

      This is supposed to be a celebration - these folks and their families are so happy to be there - all of them.  

      I had to laugh, during one of the Texas Senators swearing in, his little girl started to cry when Joe picked her up.  He said something like "I know I'm a Democrat, but it's OK" and her mom said "she cries for Republicans, too."  

      He was clearly enjoying the moms and the kids and just everybody - he's a family guy, the more the merrier and this is a big day for all of them - he can relate, because he's been in their shoes before.  If people get ticked off that everybody was enjoying themselves, they really are just being jerks.  

      "Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential." - Barack Obama
