CNN has as its daily poll the question: “What makes you angriest?” Their choices are
1. Washington’s lack of accountabilty
2. Lack of respect in the workplace
3. Hollywood’s cultural consciousness
4. None of the above
What makes me angriest IS Washington’s accountability. They are accountable to those who put them in power: their powerful financial backers and it to them that they are held accountable. This is what makes me angriest: they aren’t accountable to us, the people.
CNN got their poll woefully wrong. Someone didn’t think this through very well. Accountability is to those to whom these people are indebted. Folks, that isn’t you and me. Max Baucus is the shining example.
