    Rand Paul detained by TSA

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) was detained Monday by the Transportation Security Administration in Nashville, Tenn. after refusing a full body pat-down, POLITICO has confirmed.

    “I spoke with him five minutes ago and he was being detained indefinitely,” Paul spokesperson Moira Bagley said Monday morning. “The image scan went off, he refused patdown.”

    The apple doesn't fall very far from the tree, does it. I guess there are special rules if you are a Senator, at least in his mind. Not, apparenlty, in the minds of the TSA.

    He should be embarrassed that he refused a pat down. And what's Ron Paul doin' tweeting it all over the internet? What? Are they junior high little girls?

    Rand Paul wasn't doing it because he thought he was entitled as a Senator. If you could accuse him of anything, it could be exploiting a situation to make a political statement.

    He was probably designated as a libertarian terrorist by the Obama administration.

    I've had my junk cupped as well, so sometimes it is exactly like that.

    He's a Senator, right? Unless he's introduced or otherwise supported legislation to stop patdowns, he's a hypocrite. He's not above the law. Seriously. Gimme' a break. I can just hear him: "Do you know who I am????!!!! STFU and spread 'em.

    Yes, the image scan is set to detect libertarians automatically.
