Fire the Campaign?

William Kristol says John McCain should fire his campaign because his campaign"is now close to being out-and-out dysfunctional. Its combination of strategic incoherence and operational incompetence has become toxic."

I know this is stating the obvious, but are we supposed to believe that McCain, who's been a legislator for most of his career can't run a campaign but he can steer an unwieldy executive branch in a time of crisis? Really?

Towards the end of his op-ed, Kristol writes: "But what we do know is that we could use someone as president who’s shown in his career the kind of sound judgment and strong leadership we’ll need to make it through the crisis."

What I'm trying to figure out is, other than reflexive loyalty, what has McCain done in the last few months to make us think that he could even remotely be that guy?
