TSA Strikes Again... With Credit Where Credit is Due?

I don't really know if this should be filed under "TSA Strikes Again" or "Credit Where Credit is Due."  Senator Rand Paul (Teabaggin Independent Lunatic Fringe) was denied boarding at Nashville, after he refused a pat-down search (he had allegedly "triggered a routine alarm").

"When an irregularity is found during the TSA screening process, it must be resolved prior to allowing a passenger to proceed to the secure area of the airport," TSA spokesman Greg Soule said in a statement. "Passengers who refuse to complete the screening process cannot be granted access to the secure area in order to ensure the safety of others traveling."

At least the TSA goons treated a teabaggin "moran" the same way they treat us.

  1. No, if one of us had refused screening, we would have been arrested because apparently once you enter the screening area, you aren't allowed to leave it without being screened, under some regulation or another that I forget. That's why the "you're not going to touch my junk" guy was lucky he walked away without being handcuffed and hauled off to jail, the only reason that he could do so was because TSA personnel are not certified law officers and have no arrest powers and there were no law officers nearby.
