Just when you thought Our Rulers couldn’t get any more ludicrous, they plumb new depths of absurdity.
Be sure to catch the readers’ comments. As I write, there are ten, all of them derisive: “What will this involve, asking ‘May I grope you, Sir?’ or ‘You won’t mind if I steal your iPad will you?'” demands Bill Fisher, while Annapolis witheringly adds, “I prefer to have TSA thugs speak to us exactly as their disgusting actions would indicate: that we are terrorist suspects caught in a Kafka-esque nightmare, and that they intend to sexually humiliate us as a ‘safety’ measure by putting their hands down our pants and touching minor children where their bathing suits cover. Anyone who takes a job molesting children deserves nothing but our contempt, and that’s what they’ll continue to get from me…”
Or, as notioranda observes, “You can put lipstick on a pig and it’s still a pig.” Apologies to porkers everywhere.6:33 am on February 1, 2013 Email Becky Akers
