The TSA playmate of the month

Donna D’Errico (and tell me that isn't a fake name), a former Playboy "playmate" and Baywatch guest star, is complaining that she was singled our for a full airport body scan, which she apparently thought was humiliating .

Let's see if we've got this straight: she exposes herself to the thousands of Playboy readers (surely there are no more than that anymore) in a full photographic spread, but she's bothered by a couple of TSA employees leering at her?

Maybe she would have felt better if the image quality of the scanners was more top quality.

It's a crazy world.

I always thought you vehemently opposed TSA body scans and derided their employees as 'gropers'.

Oh now I see...

...your indigantion is momentarily stayed when you see a chance at making a cheap joke at a woman's expense.

I've got to hand it to ya, Martin. You've got that old Kentucky-style class.

There is the small matter of consent.

I guess we have to go through the basic reading comprehension drill again...

What in this post indicates that I am not vehemently opposed to TSA body scans?

Singring said...

'What in this post indicates that I am not vehemently opposed to TSA body scans?'

So you are vehemently opposed then?


Then I expect you to apologize for suggesting that Ms D'Errico should not have complained about undergoing one.

Or do Playmates have less cevil rights than Martin Cothran?

I know I've told you the same thing before about sharing your feelings on my blog, which you do with some frequency, but I'm not particularly concerned about your expectations.

Singring said...

Where was I expressing feelings?

I was simply expressing a desire for consistency on your part.

Martin Cothran complains about TSA scans from comfort of his own home = conservative civil rights champion

Playmate model complains about TSA scans after actually having undergone one = 'crazy'

Another shining example of 'logic'.

The post is perfectly consistent with my position on TSA in general. So unless you can point to something that specifically contradicts my earlier position, I don't have time to bother with this.

If you need help figuring out what a contradiction is, let me know.
