John Kerry: In tribute to Boston, crowd at Yankees game sang ‘Sweet Adeline’

We needed some comic relief this week, and today the role that usually played by Joe Biden is being filled capably by John Kerry:

Secretary of State John Kerry — who served as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts from 1985 to 2013 — made a major gaffe Thursday when he botched the name of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” a song that’s a major part of Boston Red Sox tradition.

Kerry called the song “Sweet Adeline” Thursday morning while discussing the New York Yankees crowd’s rendition as a tribute to those affected by the Boston bombing.

It’s understandable that Kerry had the wrong song stuck in his head, because unless I’m mistaken, “Sweet Adeline” is the national anthem of Kyrzakhstan.

Update: On a more serious note, Kerry was asked about Benghazi, and his response was concerning the need to wrap up the investigation because “we got a lot more important things to move on to and get done.”
