Huh, I don't think there's a damned thing funny about it.

After being asked if the encroaching eyes of big government were giving the U.S. a bad name during a CFR event earlier today, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano responded by saying she was pleased with being dubbed “Big Sis” by the Drudge Report.
Discussing airport security, moderator Terry Moran stated, “There is this sense of encroaching eyes of government on us at every single stage, you get that all the time, so what do you say as you reach these agreements, push our borders and the United States’ way of doing things out into countries which have different traditions and values, perhaps? Is big sister watching?”
“I think ‘big sis’ is my moniker in the Drudge Report,” responded Napolitano.
“I knew I’d actually made it when I had my own name in the Drudge Report. You know, that’s the standard,” joked the DHS chief, pumping her fist in the air, and receiving a few chuckles in response from the CFR elitists in the audience.
Unfortunately for Napolitano, being named after a fictional dictator of a totalitarian state where the government keeps constant surveillance of its citizens is not something to be proud of.
Napolitano is obviously very pleased with herself for riling the privacy-oriented Matt Drudge and his millions of readers. Back in September, she also referenced the moniker during a Politico breakfast meeting.
“I think that what he means is we are watching too much—kind of an Orwellian view. He’s just wrong. I mean, he’s just wrong,” Napolitano declared.
As we subsequently documented, it is in fact Napolitano and the despised federal agency she fronts which has been repeatedly been proven wrong on privacy issues.
Homeland Security and its subsidiary the TSA have been caught time and time again lying about both privacy and health issues in a transparent ploy to undermine genuine concerns.
The DHS has repeatedly lied about the privacy and health threats posed by naked body scanners in an effort to keep the controversy under wraps, as well as withholding evidence.
It has also taken on the very “Orwellian” role Napolitano dismisses by placing journalists and others who have been critical of the TSA on terrorist watch lists.
