“While you’re in correction mode,” former “60 Minutes” producer Marion Goldin noted Tuesday, “you might want to take a look at Joe Biden’s mis-attribution of ‘they also serve who only stand and wait’ in his eulogy” for Massachusetts Institute of Technology police Officer Sean Collier, allegedly killed by the Boston Marathon bombers.

“He credited [John] Keats,” she said. “It is, of course, John Milton.”

Of course. Well, they’re both named John?
