Real Debate Wisconsin has some suggested slogans for the new TSA, including the precious “It’s not a grope. It’s a freedom pat.”

Funny thing about this TSA thing and some orthodox thinking from some liberals I encounter:
- Sure, it’s an inconvenience, but it’s not Obama’s fault.
- The TSA came from the Bush administration.
- Ergo, any Republican/conservative who is against it is a hypocrite for not opposing it under Bush.
It’s a very specific funhouse mirror they see us in, wherein intra-Republican debates and dissent are unknown or ignored and policies are supported unconditionally because our team throws them up.
As if all (I dare say any) conservatives were eager for the creation of a new Federal department and its jackbooted minions. Somehow, when conservatives reflect in that particular mirror, the liberals don’t see the whacko conservatives hate Federal agents reflection because it’s from a different mirror, and some people cannot or will not look beyond some silly single image.
