By now you have probably heard about all of the hub-bub regarding the TSA protocols that require everyone to be felt up…er, patted down (including men’s and women’s groins and buttox, and women’s breasts. Yes, this includes children as well. While, yes, we all want to have our air travel be safe, it seems to us that this method is disturbingly flawed on so many levels that it is hard to even take it seriously.
Lord knows that humorist Dave Barry was recently fondled, er, groped, um, patted down and said the following…
Mr. BARRY: Well, they take you in this little room. And it’s an unpleasant little room. The man is putting on the blue gloves. He’s telling me how he’s going to touch me. And he makes a big point about when he’s going to be using the front of his hand, and when he’s going to be using the back of his hand.
And I’m thinking, I don’t really care. Like, it’s not like if I’m going to have a guy touching me, I’m going to look down and go, oh, it’s okay; it’s the back of his hand – you know what I mean?
(Soundbite of laughter)
Mr. BARRY: And then while I was in there, the other guy with the boarding pass came in. And he says, oh, I’m a – you’re Dave Barry. I’m a big fan. And so I had this kind of surreal conversation with one guy telling me what a big fan he is, how much, you know, he likes my – and the other guy is groping me.
Needless to say, everyone’s molesting grope isn’t nearly as humorous. Witness the following Video (after the jump).
The following video is cell-phone footage of a hysterical three-year-old girl being frisked by a TSA security worker at a Tennessee airport which was shot by her father, a reporter for a Houston TV station,
The footage shows little Mandy Simon sobbing, squirming and screaming “Stop touching me!” as a female TSA employee – her face purposely blurred – pats the girl down while her mother tries to calm her.

Watching this I can only wonder two things;
1) Will TSA Agents be required to register as sex offenders?
2) Will de-frocked pedo-ex-priests now all line up to get jobs as TSA Agents?
