    I am suspicious that the smarty pants attitude of the Pauls might have come into play.  Ron, and likely Rand, think they are much smarter that everybody else – typical of all pols.  In my career, I never had a problem through perhaps 500 to 700 trips thru security.  It was very simple:  Shut up, follow instructions, don’t be carrying anything that they say not to bring.  Too easy.  And, I never felt that my rights were violated.
    Excuse me for being cynical, but any chance this was a scripted or sought-after confrontation to prove some libertarian big-brother point?  I appreciate Rand’s conservatism, but I must admit that I am getting pretty bored with Ron ‘s act.  How long is 15 minutes, anyway?

      900 seconds…..

      Flipping through HBO I came across Bruno and saw Ron Paul. If you have not seen the clip it is a must see. Paul goes running out of the hotel calling a Bruno a “Queer”

      Hilarious!
