Old Joke 

John McCain en 2000 :
"What would you do if something happened to Greenspan?" a reporter drilled John McCain during the primaries. "Well," said the Senator, "I'd put sunglasses on him and prop him up like that guy in Weekend at Bernie's."
John McCain en 2007 :
Republican John McCain said Thursday that as president he would appoint Alan Greenspan to lead a review of the nation's tax code -- even if the former Federal Reserve chairman was dead. ''If he's alive or dead it doesn't matter. If he's dead, just prop him up and put some dark glasses on him like, like 'Weekend at Bernie's,''' McCain joked.
La première fois, ça pouvait à la rigueur passer pour drôle. La seconde, ça en devient pathétique. Comme la campagne d'un candidat usé, vieilli et fatigué.
