What Should John McCain's Next Campaign Stunt Be?

Barney Frank said of John McCain's campaign (non-)suspension, "It's the longest Hail Mary pass in the history of either football or Marys." Should the suspension and these bailout shenanigans not lift his poll numbers — just like Sarah Palin, the ultimate campaign Hail Mary, ultimately failed to — what stunt does John McCain turn to next? Slate has 10 guesses, a couple I'll reproduce here:

- Returns to Vietnam and jails himself.
- Offers the post of "vice vice president" to Warren Buffett.
- Challenges Obama to suspend campaign so they both can go and personally drill for oil offshore.
- Learns to use computer.

Slate wants to know if you have any good ones to add. And speaking of play-along-at-home Slate features, they recently created a list of Bush Administration executive orders that need to go — they highlighted the worst nine out of Bush's 262 EOs and want to know if you can think of a tenth.
