    In conclusion, with all the recent trouble that Charlie Sheen has gotten himself into, and the attempted terrorist attack on Christmas Day, Americans are no longer allowed to wear underwear. If you are worried about this invading your privacy while going through security at the airports don't be, the TSA security gaurd will simply just walk away.

    "Mrs. Palin, we ARE checking invitation lists now. You are not a member of the press corps. Will you leave quietly, or should I have Mr. Brennan here escort you out?"
