But new online pal Displaced Plainsman offers this observation on double standards for accountability (I quote in full, as DP is brief but effective):
Michael Steele, head of the RNC, apparently isn't responsible for the staffer who took people to a lesbian/bondage themed club. High school teachers, however, are responsible for how their students perform on NCLB tests.
Most stats say that kids are away from school 91% of the time. I have contact with my students about 55 minutes a day. I'm willing to bet that Steele has more contact with his staffers than I have with my students. Isn't there a double standard here? [Displaced Plainsman, 2010.03.30]
Anyone who has watched Star Trek knows the captain is always responsible for the actions of his crew. Kirk up, Mr. Steele!
