You'd think that an unemployment rate hovering near 10% would focus the White House's mind on job creation, not destruction, but the Obama administration stayed true to form ... when Interior Secretary Ken Salazar visited the Gulf and told offshore drillers that the permits they need to put Americans back to work are not coming anytime soon.

I love Sarah Palin. ... I remain a Palin fan. The woman has rarified political talent and is an American phenomenon the likes of which we haven't seen since Ronald Reagan. That said ... I'm not sure her recent high-profile activities are helping her politically. In an age of instantaneous communication and constant connectivity via 24/7 cable, the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, et al., is there such a thing as overexposure• You betcha.

I'll tell you, the left's race to throw Obama under the bus almost makes me want Obama to rebound enough to climb out from under the bus and then throw all his fair-weather friends under the very same bus.

When terrorists started trying to bring liquid explosives on planes, we went to 3 oz. bottles. When terrorists started wearing bombs as underwear, we went to full body screening. What happens when terrorists start using their body cavities• God help us.

If you have to fly this holiday season and one of these lovable TSA guys tries to brush his hands against your bathing-suit area, you shouldn't fall to the floor and scream, "Don't graze me, bro!" Unless somebody's shooting video. In other news, Pee-Wee Herman is finally back, bringing his Playhouse to Broadway. He's been commuting from LA to do the show, mostly because he enjoys the TSA screening.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
