Chris Murphy’s baby raises hand to be sworn in with Senator daddy

New Democratic US Senator from Connecticut, Chris Murphy, was being sworn in today by Vice President Joe Biden, and in the middle of the swearing in, his youngest son raised his hand because daddy had his hand raised.

This is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen.

And there’s video!

First the photo, then after that, the video. Enjoy.

    Most Senators are cry babies anyway, how would we know the difference?

    The baby is getting all the attention, but kudos to his big brother as well – well-mannered, not fidgety. Great job to both of them!

    John, shhh, this kid will do a MUCH better job than half of them ……..

  6. I want to know if the kid got sworn in and we now have a constitutional crisis.

    I’d rather a senator swear an oath on the honor of his children than the Bible. One is real.

  8. Jim Olson says:

    I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. Especially that the new Senator from CT is *not* Linda McMahon.

  9. Max_1 says:

    Additionally, Biden utters under his breath, when addressing mom and the Bible and the Senator not placing his hand on it… “Don’t worry, this is a reenactment.”

    Of course Dick Armey, er Newt Gingrich will be on FOXNews(R) tomorrow claiming that reenactments still require a hand on the Bible…

  10. Bose says:

    Perfect. Fade out Lieberman and McMahon, raise the spotlight on the future.

    Queue Tea Party outrage that his hand wasn’t physically on the Bible, and that Biden is genuinely good guy (and grandpa) making sure the 4-y/o is comfortable in the middle of it all.
