17-year-old McKay Hatch, the South Pasadena teen famous for founding the No Cussing Club and instigating a No Cussing Week here in L.A. County, is at it again, calling out Joe Biden out for swearing. The Vice President whispered into President Barack Obama's ear--and everyone else, thanks to a microphone--"This is a big fucking deal," at the health care bill signing on Tuesday (video). Hatch is planning a 3 p.m. press conference today to ask for Biden's apology, says the Pasadena Star News. He'll also send the VP a No Cussing club penalty jar and a club t-shirt.
