Conservative ministers behaving assholishly.
Oh, for fuck's sake. Are there any actual grownups in that party?
P.S. What we desperately need is someone who surreptitiously video'ed the whole thing on their mobile phone. Oh, man, the entertainment value ...
BY THE WAY, do you know what the most revealing part of this whole ugly episode was? It's not Blackburn's ignorance in not knowing federal airline law. It's not even his angry petulance in arguing about losing his booze. No, it was the incredibly infantile behaviour in demanding that someone discard the tequila in front of him.
Really, how childish do you have to be to finally understand that you're not taking your liquor on board, so you might as well pour it out so no one else will get it? I'm guessing that most people who aren't insufferable assholes (read: Conservatives and Blogging Tories) would simply accept that they screwed up, turn to some random person coming out of the gate area and say, "Yo, here you go. Happy Tequila Day! Enjoy!"
That's what I'd do. But, then again, I don't live my life with the attitude of, "Well, if I can't have it, nobody else can." In short, I'm not that kind of intellectually childish douchebag.
