Oh, those hilarious, naive babies! They think something magical will happen just by looking into underpants!
Unfortunately, the same naivety is a lot less hilarious when it's the basis for Janet Napolitano's frontline defense of our airways. She's calling for hundreds of new full-body scanners which will allow the government to peek into our panties, while refusing to institute rational profiling techniques (of the type successfully used by Israel) to concentrate the TSA's attention on those most likely to commit acts of terror.
Ironically, experts say that the new scanning technology probably wouldn't have detected the "underwear bomber's" device, which raises the possibility that the new army of government crotch-watchers will be hired only to cause the president's limp "jobs created" number to rise. So to speak.
