John McCain loves a good joke. But his joke about appointing Alan Greenspan to a tax reform commission even if the former fed chief were dead is old. How old?

Try almost eight years old.

It's time for some new material! And besides, once McCain reads Andrew Ferguson's review of Greenspan's memoir, he probably will have the sense not to appoint Greenspan to the commission anyway.
