On the Absuridty of TSA Screenings

I'm not a Ron Paul fanatic. I probably wouldn't even qualify as a fan. But this quote is great (video via: Drudge). He's talking about pilots having to go through TSA screening.

But can you think how silly the whole thing is?

The pilot has a gun in the cockpit and he's managing this aircraft which is a missile and we make him go through this groping x-ray exercise, having people feel in their underwear.

It's absurd!

He's exactly right. If a pilot ever decided to commit a terrorist act, he has plenty of ways to do that other than smuggling a box-cutter through security in his underwear.
