“Vice-President Biden, you have offended some of your fellow Americans, myself included,” wrote Brandon Halcomb, a student at Leslie County High School in Hyden, Ky. “It was wrong for you to have used such vulgarity in a public place, let alone at the taxpayers expense as you celebrated such an awesome landmark with our President. However, Vice-President Biden, to me, you cheapened that occasion with such tastelessness while congratulating the President on this event.”

Biden responded to the junior-sized dressing down with a letter of his own. “I should have expressed my excitement in a more appropriate manner,” he wrote.
Although Halcomb was appreciative of the letter, he doesn’t appear to be satisfied with the response.

“It was not really an apology, but that’s as close to an apology as I will be receiving,” Brandon told a local TV station.
