Senator Barbara Mikulski will be leaving Congress, and the DNC had a request in honor of the announcement:

We do thank her for leaving Congress! So there’s that bit of bipartisanship.

Vice President Joe Biden had this compliment for Mikulski … sort of:

Biden’s writers must have been pressed for time, because the the VP used the same line after Barbara Boxer announced she’d be leaving Congress.

That does sound familiar:

Originality is not one of Joe Biden’s strong suits.
