'Country First' or 'L'État, C'est Moi'?

Press release from McCain headquarters:
Senator John McCain announced today that, in order to focus on his search for a clue leading the country out of the financial crisis, he is suspending his presidential campaign and replacing running mate Sarah Palin with New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. "I thank Governor Palin for her willingness to serve, but Andrew is the man I need," declared McCain. "Who understands the housing disaster better than Bill Clinton's HUD Secretary?"
Kidding aside, McCain's action might be credible if his recent responses to the crisis had been cogent. They weren't and it isn't.

Do we want the loonie or the empty suit?
