Madame Secretary, Would You Let the TSA Touch Your Junk?

This morning, Bob Schieffer had Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Face the Nation to discuss invasive airport security screenings that are starting to turn off just about any air traveler who doesn’t show up to the airport wearing a leather hood and a ball gag.

When I heard Schieffer ask Hillary if she’d submit to a pat-down, I thought maybe Bob suspected her of smuggling cigarettes to the president, but Schieffer was instead referring to TSA searches:

Asked in the closing moments of an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” if she would submit to “one of these pat-downs” that has caused a national outcry among travelers, Clinton replied, “Not if I could avoid it.”

“No, I mean who would?,” she said with a chuckle.

Who would willingly submit to a pat-down? Certainly not little kids, but we don’t always know what’s good for us. Because of new procedures Joe Biden says we should just put up with, the skies are now safer thanks to strip-searches like this one that would put a person on the sex offender registry if he or she wasn’t wearing rubber gloves and a TSA badge.

Not everybody is feeling powerless during the TSA screening process, because if you happen to be wearing a hijab, you may be allowed to request to pat down yourself. Gee, that will be effective.

Last night, the TSA got some notice on Saturday Night Live, but it’s hard to satirize something that has already self-inflicted its own satire:
