Vice President Biden on Wednesday brought the house down at the funeral of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), remembering the late senator as a progressive fighter, and displaying the Biden trademark humor.

Speaking at the service at Park Avenue Synagogue in New York, Biden began his remarks by noting Lautenberg's devotion to his grandchildren.

“My wife says I’m the most obnoxious grandfather in the world," Biden said. "No. Wrong. Frank was the most obnoxious.”
