So, where's the change?

Freedom Rider gets it:
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.
Don't forget expanded powers for ICE, bailouts for banksters (e.g., IMF) while the rest of us starve, austerity for us commoners, expansion of the Bagram gulag, and I'm sure so much more. Isn't change just wonderful?
