    Well, at least it shows that she's not flying around in military planes like some Repubilcans members of Congress have done in recent weeks.

    My heart goes out to the poor TSA agent who had to do the pat-down.

    "Positive for what???"

    The chemical scanners that detect compounds frequently present in IEDs, etc. They are very sensitive and bomb-making isn't the only way those compounds get on your hands necessarily. I think I read an article somewhere that a particular brand of hand sanitizer or similar product was setting it off at one point....or maybe it was a prescribed hand cream or something....something like that.

    Poor poor Rudy NYC is so drowning in the Obama kool-aid he can no longer think for himself and see that both parties abuse their powers. In his weak way of thinking it's only Republicans that do wrong according to Rudy NYC. Poor guy, kind of feel sorry for him.

    Not to worry, folks, that plane Nancy used to use is now being used by Boehner to scoot on down to the Keys to golf and god only knows what else. I;m sure that there iis a lot of booze involved.
