It is Summer 2009, and John McCain is President
Oh my! What would that be like? I'll quote my own response to Salon's stupid article.
Dime's worth of difference
If McCain were president his justice department would defend the Defense of Marriage Act, he would argue that he didn't have to reveal who visited the white house, he would go to court to prevent torture photos from being released and he would expand war into Afghanistan and Pakistan and he would be willing to take away our right to file malpractice suits and he would propose indefinite detention without trial and um, um, oh, never mind.
