Oh hell. I rated this down, and THEN got the damned joke.

I would have rated this up.

Dammit.

Sorry, subby. I'm a `tard.

Expected to make a smooth move to his new office.

Take as much time as you need to get the joke.

Subby wins the comedy blue ribbon

i hope he can tighten things up around there

Fra_dat_da: i hope he can tighten things up around there

not once the unions get in.
 
2009-09-11 08:25:59 AM  
He had a pretty good run at his old job.
 
2009-09-11 08:28:19 AM  
Well at least he isn't full of shiat...
 
2009-09-11 08:29:10 AM  
should make cavity searches quite interesting
 
2009-09-11 08:29:11 AM  
You are shiating me!

This should make the weekly list of best submissions. Excellent job subby. Just....damn....lol.

Ex-lax security chief to head TSA

. . . in hopes of scaring the shiat out of terrorists.
 
2009-09-11 08:39:05 AM  
Bravo!
 
2009-09-11 08:42:14 AM  
Smooth move.
 
2009-09-11 08:44:46 AM  
"Freeze! Now drop that shiat!"
 
2009-09-11 08:47:08 AM  
Arkanaut: Smooth move.

I like your style.
 
2009-09-11 08:51:29 AM  
His first move should be to fire all of the incompetent and rude TSA workers. Unfortunately the best thing to do would be to scrap the TSA altogether and replace it with a more professional better trained organization.
 
2009-09-11 08:52:11 AM  
Great headline, smitty. Terrible choice, Obama. If you think air travel is a PITA now, wait until TSAs become another public sector union.

While I fail to disagree with you, I'd bet the farm it won't happen. TSAs are all atwitter that he's in favor of unionizing them. At that point, incompetent and rude become primary job qualifications. Once unionized, professionalism and training (at least in dealing competently with the public) take a back seat to grievance procedure and effective work slow-down techniques.

This.

First time I read it I got the Ex lax.

Second time I read it, I got the Lax security.

+2 for subby.
 
2009-09-11 09:10:24 AM  
TSA must die.
 
2009-09-11 09:17:16 AM  
He should get things running.
 
2009-09-11 09:18:21 AM  
ahh shiat.
 
2009-09-11 09:26:31 AM  
+2, for sure

POOP THREAD! *kermit hands*

/What? Someone had to do it!
 
2009-09-11 09:31:34 AM  
I hear he isn't letting the appointment make him stuck-up; he's still just a regular guy.
 
2009-09-11 09:32:30 AM  
I anticipate a lot of pent up rage will be released in this thread
 
2009-09-11 09:44:47 AM  
I would like thank Dear Leader for his generous desire to unionize the government TSA. Because unionization means that the poor retards can never be fired no matter how badly they screw up.

/Bet it will be a crime to not kiss their shoes, next.
/Screenings at the airport are going to get even crapper.
 
2009-09-11 10:00:29 AM  
I know Errol and can tell you he is one smart, down to earth guy.

He is a no bullshiat kinda guy and things might get better with the TSA.

Vitamin Pb: I would like thank Dear Leader for his generous desire to unionize the government TSA. Because unionization means that the poor retards can never be fired no matter how badly they screw up.

Oh, they get away with plenty already.

Meet the TSA screener who brought a gun to work, and didn't get fired (new window)

Now, if you or I brought a gun? You can be damn sure that we'd be wearing bracelets.

Teknowaffle: I know Errol and can tell you he is one smart, down to earth guy.

Are you getting a kick out of these replies?

From what I read, he's going to be indoctrinated into the biggest pile of BS that will be out of his control.

Good luck to him.

THIS

Fark Obama for creating the biggest most incompetent bureaucracy in the history of the world.

Seriously?

You know that Obama wasn't even a U.S. Senator when the TSA was created, right?
 
2009-09-11 10:29:41 AM  
Aw shiat....
 
2009-09-11 10:32:35 AM  
It's hard to believe that the TSA is our first line of airport security, I mean, have you ever seen some of these retarded neanderthals?

It is pretty hard to fire ANY government agency employee, isn't it? Unionized or not? I have actually felt kind of sorry for the TSA people when they have to smell some of the feet that come out of the shoes.
 
2009-09-11 10:59:44 AM  
Some people are really easy to impress
 
2009-09-11 11:06:03 AM  
Maybe he'll make some improvements?

/Well, one can hope
//New leadership is sometimes a good thing
 
2009-09-11 11:11:20 AM  
Good headline. Smooth, easy; in one piece.
 
2009-09-11 11:12:39 AM  
There's just no parking in the white zone.
 
2009-09-11 11:44:14 AM  
I hope everything comes out okay...

SpaceLord: There's just no parking in the white zone.

The red zone is for loading and unloading of passengers only.
 
2009-09-11 12:21:17 PM  
So the head of TSA is in favor of unionization. What a good idea. Maybe President Hussein will make him head of Homeland Security and all the FBI will be teamsters, Secret Service can join the United Mine Workers and ATF can join hotel workers. Or maybe since the unions did such a fine job on the car companies they can all be UAW.

They haven't even done anything yet, and they're the most incompetent yet? That's a bit of stretch.

/wouldn't want to work for you
