Like We Said...No Accountability for Politicians

I've said way back from the  beginning that people, that includes parents and politicians, must be made accountable for their actions concerning bullying and bearing false witness. DADT was finally out the door on September 20th of this year, and the sky hasn't fallen yet. But tell that to Sen. McCain, who vehemently said that soldiers would leave in droves, the army would fall apart at the seams, and it would bring about such disaster within the armed forces that we would no longer be recognized as a world military to be reckoned with.

( Humor)
Well Sen. McCain, where are the deserters? Why is the military still functioning the same as it did before the repeal? Why are you not being held accountable for all the lies, threats and false statements you made preceding the repeal?

From the Washington Post, this thought:
"The political world just doesn’t seem to operate this way. McCain will continue to enjoy his standing as a leading voice on military affairs because the establishment says so.
If ridiculous predictions had any bearing on credibility, conservative Republicans would never be able to utter a word about economic policy in public again without being laughed at. We’re talking about a group of folks who said Reagan’s tax increases would be a disaster, Clinton’s agenda would cause an economic collapse, Bush’s policies would work wonders, and Obama’s agenda would make the 2008 crash even worse."
I guess that accountability depends upon which side of the fence you happen to be on at the moment.
