(Newser) – The sun rose in the east today, and Joe Biden apologized for a hokey joke. The VP called Chief Justice John Roberts to say he was sorry for his crack about the flubbed inaugural oath, the Christian Science Monitor reports. “My memory’s not as good as Justice Roberts,” Biden said as he prepared to swear in White House staffers in his first full day on the job. A spokesman says the two "had a good conversation."
