The TSA – Transportation SNAFU Agency.

As others have noted, one of the main problems faced by the Bush administration is the war being conducted on it by the federal bureaucracy. In addition to the constant ‘leakage’ of anti-administration talking points coming from the CIA, State Department, etc. we now can add the TSA to the list.

There aren’t many positives to forced unionization of airport screeners – the only likely outcomes are to make the airport security process even worse than it currently is, increase the surliness and general level of insolence that bureaucrats already exhibit for the public, and generate huge amounts of forced political contributions to left wing candidates and causes.
