Woman of the People

Perky Katie's "Do you know who I am" moment:

The witness told Page Six that attendants on Wednesday's 6:30 p.m. Delta Shuttle flight out of Washington, D.C., had already closed the door and passengers were buckled in, when the soon-to-be CBS News anchor raced up the aisle with a cellphone to her ear and told an attendant she had to speak to the pilot right away.

I'm kind of wondering what might have happened if some of the other passengers had viewed her actions as a threat and tackled and subdued her. After all, wouldn't giving perky, wealthy, middle-aged, caucasian women a pass as a possible terrorist on an airplane constitute a form of profiling?

Well, yes, we all hate Katie for being crass and perky at the same time (or at least I do), but describing her actions in this case as "diabolical", while hilarious, seems just a wee bit hysterical.
