Air Defense

The USAF has attempted to launch countermeasures in response to the WaPo's story about "comfort capsules," noted below. Among the arguments raised in defense by spokesman Lt. Col. Mike Paoli are the Pattonesque "that's bunk," and the somewhat whiny "they aren't that nice."

But our favorite is this especially risible one: "An American would want their senior leaders to travel comfortably." Get it? A terrorist would want them to fly coach.  Pampering the elite while the regular joes suffer is patriotic.

Apparently, he hasn't seen the President's approval ratings. Many Americans would like at least one leader to travel in tar and feathers.
