Thank God for the Security of Der Homeland



WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Department of Homeland Security will investigate a Halloween costume party hosted by a top immigration official and attended by a man dressed in a striped prison outfit, dreadlocks and darkened skin make-up, a costume some say is offensive, the department's secretary said.

Nantel said one employee, whom she declined to identify, was wearing a black-and-white striped prison outfit, dreadlocks and a skin "bronzer" intended "to make him look African-American." But, she said, it was not immediately apparent that he was wearing the make-up.

"Most people in the room didn't realize he was wearing make-up at all," she said


Okay, obvious racist overtones and easy jokes aside, aren't these the people who are supposed to spot terrorists in airports?

Stripped searched by an Al Jolson wannabe. Please don't let him sing "Swanee!"

There's no need for spotters since everyone is a potential terrorist. See how easy homeland security is?

Remember, it's the thought not the act that's really the crime.

Water-boarding anyone?
