Here’s another reason to laugh your ass off at working people who voted for Bush.

…At some of the busiest airports in the country, including ones in New York City, Miami and Los Angeles, passengers with premium-class tickets or upper-level memberships in airline clubs are now able to cut the line.

When they show their boarding passes and identification these passengers are directed into a separate luxury lane to be screened by Transportation Security Administration employees. …

…At Los Angeles International Airport for example, Transportation Security Administration representatives say that if an airline requests, the agency will provide a dedicated security checkpoint for its luxury lane, or allow them to escort those passengers to the front of the line while economy class passengers creep along behind them. …

Maybe when you’re standing in a long security check line with your kids in tow, sweating out making a flight, you should just show your “Sportsmen for Bush” bumper sticker (if you can peel it off your rusting truck) and a tax paid security guard will wave you right on through to the front.

Not likely.

I like your dreams. They're like knots, or pretzels with salt of the earth.
