'SNL' takes on TSA: Parody over protest
Protests don't seem to be changing the TSA stance on security pat-downs, but can parody make a difference? "Saturday Night Live" takes on the touchy-feely security procedure. T-shirt makers have been having a field day with new TSA slogans. And a round of bumper stickers offer up some choice TSA mottos: "It's not a grope. It's a freedom pat."
While TSA is handling much of the criticism in measured blog postings, Bloomberg Lizzie O'Leary points out that the administration known now for its security measures used to have a sense of humor of its own. Check out its old blog "Terminal Madness." Perhaps if the TSA started telling its own side of the story, (knives in Barbie Doll boxes, baby alligators at the checkpoint!), people would be more prone to give the guards a break.
