Well, he had to bravely see if the bandwagon was popular before he jumped on.

The Huckster would be leading the charge bashing the President if the TSA wasn't doing this and something happened to one of our planes.

He's a douchebag. I don't like the policy either but you know damn well he'd be defending the policy if he were president instead he gets to play armchair president and yeah the obsession with the president's female family members is just creepy to say the least.

Where the fuck were all these sudden civil libertarian crusaders when DHS and the TSA were being formed, and when these scanners were greenlit in the first place?

I tend to think I'm pretty shock-resistant when it comes to staggering hypocrisy coming from politicians and their various cheer-leading squads, but if Republicans start loudly crying out against 4th Amendment violations, extraordinary rendition, indefinite detention, and "enhanced interrogation", I'll probably have some sort of accident.

You have the choice to use the scanner, if you prefer the pat down, you can have it in private with a friend or relative watching. Uncomfortable yes, but better than another underwear bomb threat.

yeah, but who is the most likely person to be wearing an underwear bomb?

Good Gawd.

So much for "Land of the free and home of the brave".

We wet our drawers when some idiot burns his balls with a bomb that doesn't work and demand safety with machines that would not have found him in the first place. He boarded the airplane in another frakking country that doesn't have anything to do with the TSA!

Ol' Ben Franklin was right. Those who give up essential liberty for some temporary safety deserve neither.

Exactly, Huckabee didn't seem to give a crap in the Bush years but because Obama is president it's all his fault. Seriously, what a bunch of marroons.

There Is No Such Thing as “Mild” CovidRead this thread. The good news down at the end is that full vaccination does help mitigate long Covid. Nevertheless, you don't want to get a "mild" case of Covid. PSA: COVID-19 isn’t “just a cold,” isn’t “a respiratory virus,” ...
