Which is why the DMCB appreciates the irony of the "you touch my junk and I’m going to have you arrested" pickle that the Transportation Security Administration finds itself in.

The acerbic Charles Krauthammer, representing the conservatives in this matter, has a solution. Writing in a recent column in Washington Post, he points out that the Feds should pursue another approach: they can profile passengers and focus screening on persons that represent a measurably higher level of risk. Of course, that would involve computerized "strip searches" of our personal data, leading to the kind of analytics that are not only politically incorrect and but potentially invasive, discriminatory and unconstitutional. In response to Americans' frustrations, the President says he's feeling our pain, but isn't about to tell the TSA to stand down.
