My husband emailed me today to tell me he had seen a photo of VP candidate Joe Biden with his granddaughter Finnegan Biden. This is relevant because our oldest son is also named Finnegan. A quick google search turned up a darling photo of the little girl, but also this comment from a September 2008 blog entry on CBSnews.com
“Biden took the stage and thanked his 10-year-old granddaughter, Finnegan Biden, whose name Biden often jokes about in his speeches, saying she better stay smart and pretty with a name like Finnegan.”
That’s not very nice! Especially considering that the little girl was named after her great-grandmother, Biden’s mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden.
