In an embarrassing effort to be "political" or something, Khloe Kardashian went on George Lopez Tonight (great political forum) and said of the TSA screening process: "They basically are just raping you in public." No, Khloe. No they are not.
She went on to clarify her nuanced feelings about this delicate personal space vs. national security issue:
"The people are so aggressive! It's like, 'Chill out, you didn't find anything on me yet, calm down.' They say, 'OK, I'm going to be patting you down and I'm going to be touching the crease of your ass.' That is so inappropriate!"
Did they, Khloe? Did they really say "ass"? And that was basically the same thing as being publicly raped? Terrific. I'm glad that the low-rent, third-best Kardashian sister has used this issue to get attention in such a garish way.
She's not the only bargain basement celebrity to seek some sort of currency from the whole TSA body scanning thing. Former Baywatch meat model Donna D'errico claims she was subjected to a full-body scan simply because she is attractive, and that agents were laughing and whispering as she went through. Which, if that happened, it is awful and those employees should be fired. If D'errico is just exaggerating for an excuse to bring attention to how pretty she is, well she was fired by the court of public opinion many years ago, so who really cares.
What's important, Khloe Kardashian, is that D'errico didn't go on Lopez Tonight of all places and, as a fun bit of talk-show outrage, compare a clothed body pat at an airport to being raped in public. If it bothered you so much, why didn't you just go through the scanner? I mean, remember?
