Following the controversial TSA pat-down of a 3-year-old girl, Ann Coulter is back—and she has her own controversy to start. Coulter, no fan of the TSA's new body scans or pat-downs, told Bill O'Reilly the heightened security procedures result from the "crazy, politically correct world we're living in now," where we refuse to simply use profiling. "I think the point is, as many have said, this is Hitler’s last revenge," she said. "The one thing we won’t look at is who is doing this ... we have Muslim terrorists who are not part of a country."

"How about we look for the terrorists, rather than banning everything the terrorists do?" she said, predicting that if a future terrorist hides an explosive in his anal cavity, body cavity searches will be the TSA's next move, Mediaite reports. Her rationale for profiling: "If a martian landed, he would say, the one advantage you guys have is, they all look alike. They're all foreign-born. They're all male. They're all between a certain age group. They're all Muslim." Click here, here, and here for this week's TSA-related brouhahas.
