Ann Coulter not happy about full-body scanners

Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter is not happy that we're not relying solely on racial profiling [HT to WC]:
You have to search for the terrorists.

Fortunately, that's the one advantage we have in this war. In a lucky stroke, all the terrorists are swarthy, foreign-born, Muslim males. (Think: "Guys Madonna would date.")
Well, all the terrorists except Adam Gadahn, Johnny Walker Lindh, and Timothy McVeigh and crew.

Anyway, I've already made said my bit on the inadequacy of racial profiling (and about recent changes in TSA screening).

She's also unhappy about how invasive security procedures have become:
"Please have your genitalia out and ready to be fondled when you approach the security checkpoint."

This is the punishment for refusing the nude body scan for passengers who don't want to appear nude on live video or are worried about the skin cancer risk of the machines -- risks acknowledged by the very Johns Hopkins study touted by the government.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that we need to keep the government as far away from airport security as possible, and not only because Janet Napolitano did her graduate work in North Korea.
Despite the North Korea dig (and that's one reason I chose to post this), Ann Coulter's ire toward the TSA and Homeland Security is shared by an awful lot of people on the left (and they were there first).

I suspect, however, that what's really going on is that Ms Coulter is afraid the body scanner will find her penis.
