Talk about idiotic. One of the LEAST likely people to do anything to a plain or at the airport gets the full monty pat-down. Insane.

But why did they think Regis was smuggling a bomb
i know they try to avoid the appearance of profiling
but how about a little common sense 79 year old retired talk show hosts aren't likely to be terrorist

It's part of the Airport security rules. So they are doing their job and nothing wrong with that.

The only way Regis is associated with a bomb is his current tv show.

This is stupid. Does anyone seriously think Regis Philbin is going to attempt to blow up a plane? This country needs to run its airports like El Al.

Like he has a choice. People like Regis should use there fame to point out the stupidity of the new T&A policies every chance they get. Instead they just go "Baaa Baa."
