If John McCain had won the presidency in 2008, the high court would not have struck down DOMA
With a perfectly snarky tone, John Aravosis EXPLAINS another good reason why we should be glad that John McCain never became president:
The Supreme Court’s decision in US v. Windsor, striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, was 5-4, with Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor siding with the majority (i.e., us).
Had Obama lost to McCain in 2008, President Get Off My Lawn would have put Republican judges in to replace David Souter and John Paul Stevens. And I seriously doubt Justice Giuliani and Chief Justice Hatch would have been very friendly to Adam & Steve.
That’s not to say ...
