    Christopher Elliot connecting the dots on the Huffington Post.

    He notes the public appearances, including the upcoming one by Pistole, along with other dog and pony shows. He notes the TSA propaganda blog, including the post on how to screen cute baby otters.

    Are We Better Off Without The TSA?

    So, what's up?

    This is a reprint of the last TSA News post.

    As I said, those of you who are posting on TSA News need to get your articles reprinted in other media outlets just as Christopher Elliot did with this one.

    The nerve these bastards have calling us terrorist sympathizers...fregging bastards. I am livid and I've only read 1/4 of the article.

    We're in the same shape as we are without an Alien Defense Force...

    I'm just wondering about this 'charm offensive'. Maybe Pistole is worried about something......
     
  7. The otter piece is certainly suspect in its timing. Surely this isn't the first time TSA has screened cute animals headed for the David Letterman show. Do they really think people are going to be distracted from radiation, the groping of genitals, hands in pants, geriatric strip-searches, stupid terminal dumps, and rampant theft and criminal activity, by the idea that some cute otters transited a checkpoint? Otters which, if you cared, you would have seen on the David Letterman show already?

    Propaganda is a well-refined art, and I'm kind of disappointed they can't even get that right. I mean, say what you want about Stalin, but his folks made some kick-(expletive deleted) posters.

    Chris has a steady deal with HuffPo. Everything he writes at his own blog also goes up at TSA News and HuffPo.

    They didn't -- that was just a bit of presumptuous baiting on the part of Christopher Elliot, and if you're livid, it appears to have had the desired effect. :D

    Well, if I had an in anywhere, I'd try to get my TSA News posts re-published elsewhere. Alas, I don't.

    That's great, more Google hits.

    I surmised there was some connection to HuffPo since the Google hits tend to clump in the same time window.

    Among other things. Mostly, I think we'd go through life without having to worry about blue-shirted high-school drop-outs with no higher aspirations in life stopping us randomly and sticking their hands in our pants - whether just to touch our junk, or steal anything they think they can sell.

    What would we do without the TSA? We would do very well!
