Robert Gates really,
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates tells really corny jokes when he's on the road. Hokey anti-Washington gibes that "sound as though they were cribbed from an old issue of Reader's Digest," writes our colleague Greg Jaffe. Sample:
"It's always a treat to be someplace other than Washington, D.C.," Gates said. "The only place where, as I like to say, you can see a prominent person walking down Lover's Lane holding his own hand."
Yeah. Well, when he told that joke to a group in Kansas, he killed. Also, go vote for your favorite bad Washington joke -- the one about the difference between a congressman and a prostitute is way out in front currently
