Leon Panetta is so bad at telling jokes that it's cringe-inducing.—

Leon Panetta was honored this afternoon at a farewell ceremony in Washington, D.C., but the departing Secretary of Defense managed to drop a few bombs on his way out. He was joined briefly by his dog, Bravo, inspiring some terrible puns.
If you thought that was bad, Panetta hadn’t even gone nuclear yet.
Earlier in the week, Democratic senators managed to turn Panetta’s testimony on the lethal Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack into an impromptu budget hearing, preferring to spend the defense secretary’s final days arguing against sequestration. President Obama kept the trend going by turning Panetta’s going-away party into a political soapbox.
