The long-awaited roll-out of Hillary, Inc. is underway. Big interviews with ABC and NPR were timed with the launch of her memoir “Hard Choices“. The full-on media blitz is likely to keep pretenders to the 2016 nomination throne only slightly less viable as challengers than Ned Stark’s disembodied head.

‘I witnessed light sexual play among officers, a lot of e-cigarette vaping, and a whole lot of officers laughing and clowning in regard to some of your nude images, dear passengers,’ the former agent wrote.

‘Bad’ behavior: The whistleblower said that poorly trained TSA screeners fresh out of high school have been tasked with looking at nude pictures in sealed image operator rooms

The blogger partially attributed this childish behavior to lack of education and training, saying that this is what happens when people ‘fresh out of high school or a GED program’ are put in charge of analyzing nude images of people in a hermetically sealed room.
