He said he was sick of being harassed by the TSA and stripped to show that he had nothing to hide. In a demonstration of hypocrisy and irony at which authoritarians everywhere excel, the TSA — and several onlookers — harrumphed about Brennan’s “indecency.” Some had to — gasp! — avert their eyes. Brennan was promptly carted off by the authorities for his crime.
The comments in the blabbosphere range from heartening huzzahs to the predictably pearl-clutching. Some people were shocked, shocked, I say! Others pointed out that it’s legal to go nude in Portland, a city famous for its open-mindedness and annual bike ride in the buff.
Brennan isn’t the first person to protest the TSA’s security theater in a creative way, as I wrote about here.
And let’s hope he’s not the last.
