Biden Blesses The Mother of The Irish Prime Minister ... Who is Still Alive

Biden may have been momentarily confused blessing Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen's mother. The problem, Cowen's mother is still alive. Biden realized his error and corrected himself noting that it was Cowen's father, not mother, who had passed away.

"Vice President Joe Biden asked for God's blessing for the late mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen during a White House celebration of St. Patrick's Day — except the elderly lady is very much alive.

"God rest her soul," Biden said Wednesday night as he introduced Cowen and President Barack Obama. He quickly caught himself and noted that it's Cowen's father who is no longer living. Of the prime minister's mother, Biden said, "God bless her soul."
