DSCC posts, deletes Biden joke

Someone got their wires crossed at the DSCC this afternoon.

Earlier today, we posted a story about Vice President Joe Biden cracking a joke at the expense of Connecticut Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal. It's not the kind of story Democrats would normally be thrilled about — in fact, it's just the opposite. But for some reason the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) posted the story on their website.

The link has now been taken down, but you can see a screenshot below. We've asked the DSCC for comment and will update this post when we hear back.
