TSA now checking for terrorists and people who make snarky comments about TSA

CNN has obtained a copy of the 70 items on the TSA checklist for observing people who might be terrorists.  One item on the list is a contempt for TSA procedures.  The Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques (aka SPOT, eyeroll) is the method that the TSA employs to determine who is terrorist.  Apparently this list does not differentiate between terrorists and people who are annoyed about being hassled by the man because they want to get on a plane.

One thing which is perplexing to me about this list, in addition to not understanding how someone who is pissed off about being groped is a terrorist, is how on earth can two TSA screeners per checkpoint actually run down a 70 point list of factors to determine if someone is a terrorist?
