McCain's Tax Plan Rejected By His Economic Guru

John McCain on Alan Greenspan:
"Get ol' Alan Greenspan -- whether he's alive or dead. And um if he's dead, we'll put dark glasses on him and prop him up like they did at 'Weekend at Bernie's.'"

winkandanod at Washington Monthly:John McCain, of all people, should not reference "Weekend at Bernie's."

The potential karmic/ironic blowback is just too strong.

Perhaps this is why Greenspan rejected McCain's tax plan

Some people don't think much of Greenspan, but there is no denying he is a pretty sharp guy when it comes to economics. If HE doesn't buy McCain's plan, that should say a LOT. This doesn't seem to be getting a whole lot of play in the news... why is this not surprising!

Wonderful picture, Lew. That was a fun movie, and it's a very apt analogy!

I wouldn't go so far as call Greenspan a sharp guy in any sense. He did represent his heroine Ayn Rand well.

Still hilarious post.

Greenspan and Cindy used to make out back in the 1830s...before her and John got married.

What Snave said. If Greenspan isn't buying McCain's gimmickery, McCain has stooped too far.

If you are supporting Obama riding in on his magic unicorn( a blue one, with no saddle) I am very upset, as I saw you as a guy who could see the difference between a turd sandwich and a giant douche bag.
To view a good song on our election, please go here:

Vote Ron Paul or another third party as if a small amount of us start doing voting this way, well it shall grow. In 100 years or so a third party will exist, probably a fourth.
It is not a wasted vote. Don't elect a magic dragon president.
Vote third party.

While recognizing Obama as the lesser of two evils, unbrainwashed has officially endorsed Cynthia McKinney for president.
