Huckabee Challenges Obama To Put Himself And Family At TSA Mercy

Huckabee to First Family: Go Try the TSA Pat-Downs.  The Atlantic.

What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.  

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a task for the first family.  If President Obama thinks the TSA pat-downs are an appropriate security measure, Huckabee said this morning in an interview with Fox and Friends, “Then I’ve said, ‘OK, Mr. Obama, take your wife, your two daughters and your mother-in-law to Washington Reagan National Airport and have them publicly go through both the body scanner and the full enhanced pat-down in front of others.”

He continued: “If it’s OK for your wife, your daughters, and your mother-in-law, then  maybe the rest of us won’t feel so bad when our wives, our daughters and our mothers are being put through this humiliating and degrading, totally unconstitutional, intrusion of their privacy.”

Despite the noble request, it is hardly likely Obama would take Huckabee up on the challenge.  TSA agents would likely minimize their typical molestation anyway.
