Groping-Obsessed Rick Perry Isn't Satisfied With Your Policy Changes, TSA

The federal Transportation Security Administration has announced policy changes that mean children under 12 will no longer undergo pat-down searches.

In case you were thinking that might be enough for Governor Rick Perry to end his bizarre anti-"groping" campaign, you can rest assured it's not.

There's still red meat to be fed to the Tea Partiers, as Perry made clear in an announcement this afternoon.

"TSA's policy change is a step in the right direction to regain the trust of American families," Perry said.

Then he laid down the hammer: "Texas will continue seeking more common-sense approaches to TSA security measures, and I look forward to working with lawmakers on related legislation that will accomplish these goals."

Working with Texas lawmakers on groping legislation? What could go (hilariously) wrong?
