From Idiocy to Absurdity

A while ago, I made some comments about what I jokingly referred to as Constitutional Idiocy. After reading the news today, we can officially move towards the utterly absurd. While I admit this didn't occur in the United States, my concern comes from the likelihood that it could. Apparently, a man was removed from a flight from Australia to England for wearing a shirt critical of President Bush. Raging Constitutional absurdity, that is unless you can demonstrate why such an act of expressive conduct could be viewed as a threat to the President or national security.
