Last week Louisiana Senator David Vitter, known for his whatever the oppposite of restraint is, did what any not reasonable person would do when he missed his flight.
He went bananas and pried open an armed security door…
The door sounded a security alarm.
Vitter had arrived at the gate for a flight from Dulles Airport, only to find that the door had been closed twenty minutes prior to departure.
After setting off the security alarm, the Louisiana senator proceeded to dress down an airline employee who told him entering the restricted area was forbidden. He invoked his standing as a senator, delivering a "do-you-know-who-I-am" tirade.
Yeah, don't you know who this guy is? David Vitter! Took calls from the DC Madam during roll call votes. Took a brave stand against the Secretary of State. Took a hard line on budget earmarks, except for the $249 million he earmarked himself. If anyone deserves some courtesy and an upgrade, it's this guy.
Or the people of Louisiana.
