    I feel duty-bound to sketch out America as it would be today if we had elected McCain and a GOP Congress.

    That 48 percent out of work figure would look more like 90 percent.

    Our 9.2 percent unemployment rate would be more like 25 percent.

    Our whining about the halting, stumbling recovery would have long ago been drowned out by the sound of the crashing of the banking system, the world financial system, the Federal Reserve, and the world markets.

    Still enjoying my stimulus package.
