If John McCain had just said he was canceling events to go to D.C. for the bailout bill, it one, wouldn’t look any different than his still-ongoing (but really suspended!) campaign does now and two, wouldn’t have subjected him to days of ridicule.

But what do I know? The last time I put country first was when it was on a flashcard between cobblestone and cumbersome on a vocabulary test. Actually, I guess that would have actually made it 32nd in the stack. Why don’t I love America?

UPDATE: This is exactly right. John McCain’s suspended every part of his campaign that costs money or that could throw him off-message.
