Congressman John Boehner Gets To Skip the I-See-You-Naked Backscaller Machines or Being Groped

You can't be the Common Man and still be Privileged Enough to Avoid the Line. He makes good money-why doesn't John Boehner just drop the phony "I'm One of You" act and fly via private, elite plane. Gawker and NYTIMES Caucus

“Over the last 20 years, I have flown back and forth to my district on a commercial aircraft,” Mr. Boehner said at the time, “and I am going to continue to do that.”

And so on Friday, he did. But not without the perquisites of office, including avoiding those security pat-downs that many travelers are bracing for as holiday travel season approaches.

Michael Steel, a spokesman for the Republican leader, said in a statement that Mr. Boehner was not receiving special treatment. And a law enforcement official said that any member of Congress or administration official with a security detail is allowed to bypass security.

Yes. He is receiving special treatment.And why should Congress get to bypass security? For that matter, who is an *administration official"? To what level? Does it include the receptionist? Sheesh. I"m sick of the elitists who try to pretend they are just like us while avoiding the insulting and humiliating actions of a governmental department that is out of control.

UPDATE: Same thing for President Obama. It is a *huge inconvenience for all of us", it's frustrating for all of us BUT NOT YOU.

"I understand people’s frustrations, and what I’ve said to the TSA is that you have to constantly refine and measure whether what we’re doing is the only way to assure the American people’s safety. And you also have to think through are there other ways of doing it that are less intrusive," Obama said.

"But at this point, TSA in consultation with counterterrorism experts have indicated to me that the procedures that they have been putting in place are the only ones right now that they consider to be effective against the kind of threat that we saw in the Christmas Day bombing."

Obama acknowledged that as president he does not have to go through pat-downs and other normal security procedures at airports, since he flies on Air Force One.

And, really? You think being groped is just an *inconvenience*? Get back with me when YOU have to go get groped before you can get on Air Force One.

Incidentally, men seem to have less of a problem being groped by TSA than women do. Atlantic Monthly suggests that men wear kits with no underwear when getting felt up.

Kilts. Think about it -- if you're a male, and you want to bollix-up the nonsensical airport security-industrial complex, one way to do so would be to wear a kilt. If nothing else, this will cause TSA employees to throw up their hands in disgust. If you want to go the extra extra mile, I suggest commando-style kilt-wearing. While it is probably illegal to fly without pants, I can't imagine that it's illegal to fly without underpants.

If we were talking about the opposite sex, this would be not only disgusting but inappropriate. I'm really glad that white man said "Don't Touch My Junk" and want to see government intrusion to this level stopped.
