Tyrrell: "Count me in" for pat-down, "especially if the pater-downer is a cute little number" like Sarah Palin

In a November 18 Washington Times op-ed, American Spectator editor-in-chief R. Emmett Tyrrell wrote: "How many more Americans would welcome a soothing pat-down amid the hurly-burly of travel at our nation's stress-filled airports I do not know, but count me in -- especially if the pater-downer is a cute little number on the order of, say, Sarah Palin."

From Tyrrell's op-ed:

The other day, a CBS News Poll found that fully 81 percent of Americans approve the use of the high-tech machines at airports, but that means nothing to Drudge. How many more Americans would welcome a soothing pat-down amid the hurly-burly of travel at our nation's stress-filled airports I do not know, but count me in - especially if the pater-downer is a cute little number on the order of, say, Sarah Palin.
