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.

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.
