Country First?

That's in the picture that accompanies the New York Times story, McCain Goes Negative, Worrying Some in G.O.P.
What's the implication here? That Obama has divided loyalties (or worse)? That McCain is unique in that he'd put U.S. interests ahead of those of other countries? What?

OF INTEREST: The story included this observation:
Dan Schnur, who worked on Mr. McCain’s 2000 campaign and is the director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California, said the McCain campaign seemed to be drawing on lessons from watching the Democratic primary fight between Mr. Obama and Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“It wasn’t until the last weeks of the primary that Clinton and her campaign really took the gloves off on Obama, and as it happens it was too little, too late,” he said. “Obama is at his best when he talks from the mountaintop, and Clinton showed that the best hope for an opponent is to pull him back down to earth.
That calls into question whether or not it's helpful in a primary campaign for candidates to go all out trying to find a weaknesses in each other's armor.


Is that a huge flag-draped coffin hanging from the ceiling, threatening to fall down any moment? The coffin of DaMcCainles?

These days, "Country" means government, which really means our politicians' sponsors.

Explains our rising costs and stagnant wages, no?
