Best thing about sequestration? TSA takes a dive

Wax Wizard of Oz
The intertubes are full of wailing about the automatic, across-the-board cuts called sequestration that are set to take effect in 30 days if Congress doesn’t get its act together.

But amidst all the shrieking and rending of garments are howls of a different nature — from people who are thrilled that sequestration could mean a hiring freeze on the TSA and fewer of the blue-gloved goons grabbing our crotches and stealing our belongings.

TSA spokespeople, led by chief propagandist John Pistole, are, of course, predicting dire consequences if the spending cuts go forward.

Oh noes! Longer lines at security! Missed connections! Terror in the skies! Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Oh, well. In every cloud there’s a silver lining.
