Clinton "takes responsibility"

What does that mean?

Seriously, ever since Janet Reno "accepted responsibility" for the Branch Davidian FUBAR, I've always wondered what that meant to a politician.

To "accept responsibility" means to accept consequences. If it's a big enough screw up that should mean either loss of job or criminal charges or some other negative consequence.

Imagine going into your boss and "accepting responsibility" for a lost account because you forgot to follow up with important information to the customer.

What are the potential consequences?

Well, if you are a Secretary of State it means........

1) you admit to a boo boo.
2) you travel to Peru
3) you collect your next direct deposit

This is why I hate politicians.
