Robert Gates just flew in from D.C., and, man, are his arms tired

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
