The punchline comes at the 0:40 mark but stick around if you want to hear what John McCain, war hero and Sarah Palin's running mate, thinks about it.
Not sure what side of this you are falling on, that Biden could or could not shut McConnell down. Franken was objecting as a member to the rubber-stamp unanimous consent usually given for more time. Standard parliamentary practice that other Senators have used including McCain a day or two before the video.
