Good thing he's a Republican

Yesterday the Capitol and the Supreme Court were evacuated for about half an hour due to an incoming plane that violated restricted airspace. Turns out it was just newly elected Kentucky governor Ernie Fletcher, a Republican, arriving for the Reagan to-do. His plane's transponder was broken. ("Whoops, sorry boys. I know terrorists might do that to throw air traffic controllers off when they hijack a plane, but can't we let it slide?") Odds on him being charged (or somehow confronted by the Justice Department/FAA)? Slim. Odds of him being charged if he was a Democrat? Better.

More importantly, what if it was some parent/child pair, or a pilot/student training pair -- would they get off so easy? No.
