Rush Limbaugh Suggests The TSA Grope The Obama Daughters

Another week, another inappropriate Rush Limbaugh comment. Yesterday on his radio show, the conservative talk show host was discussing the hot topic of the day: TSA airport pat-downs. “Do you know when Obama went swimming with his daughter to show it was safe, during the oil spill?” He asked. “How about taking his daughter through [an airport] screening? How about Obama take [sic] his daughter to the airport and have a TSA grope her (emphasis mine), go through the exact routine with Obama’s daughter that everybody’s else’s daughter goes through, just to show it’s safe for everybody. Like he did in the Gulf with the oil spill.” Ew!

Oh, but it gets worse: Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, also weighed in on “Fox News” with creepy comments about pat-downs on the bodies of the women in the First Family… Keep reading »

The TSA: “It’s Our Business To Touch Yours”


One reason I’m grateful I don’t have to travel anywhere this holiday season is because I won’t have to deal with that new TSA pat-down policy in which some guy or gal in a uniform gets to fondle my junk in search of bombs and other fun terrorist-y stuff. “Saturday Night Live” did a pretty hilarious spoof about the new policy, as if it were one of those late-night escort service ads. Check it out above! And while you’re at it, {encode=”tips@thefrisky.com” title=”email us”} about any of your particularly interesting run-ins with a handsy TSA officer after this holiday weekend.

How To Keep Your Private Parts Private In Airport Security

Rebellion against the new TSA airport security measures is beginning to escalate. People are already pulling stunts, inventing protective pasties, and this coming Wednesday (“Opt Out Day”) promises to bring the drama (we’re secretly dying to see what happens even though it’s sure to cause a major air travel hassle). For those who wish to protest a bit more peacefully, there are now also underwear options thanks to Rocky Flats Gear, a company that produces undergarments for both men and women (bras, panties, tighty-whities) with strategically placed x-ray-blocking fig leaves. When you go through the full body scanner at the airport, the patches block the image, so you can attempt to retain some dignity. Of course, these might prove useless if the TSA thinks you’re hiding something and then forces you into the pat down. Worth a try though, maybe? [Rocky Flats Gear] Keep reading »

TSA Porn Or Security Measure?

After 9/11, airports became a place where every traveler is a terror suspect. In an effort to combat terror threats, some airports have turned into virtual high-tech strip joints. You might not have realized it, but the Transportation Security Administration has been testing 40 “whole-body imaging” machines at 19 airports. Critics say the machines, which cost a whopping $170,000, perform a “virtual strip search” and produce “naked” pictures of travelers. Now, protestors have started a national campaign to suspend use of the technology until privacy safeguards are set. “We don’t have the policy to hold [the TSA] to what they say. They’re writing their own rule book at this point,” said Lillie Coney, associate director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Keep reading »
