Patriot Act & T.S.A. Search & Seizure

In response to a previous question posted here(http://www.lawguru.com/cgi/bbs/mesg.cgi?i=822492332), an attorney indicated that the Patriot Act allows the TSA to get around the 4th Ammendment and 1st Ammendment restrictions regarding such activity. Given that there is no reasonably equivilent alternative to airline travel (i.e. a means of travel that is reasonably equivilent in terms of price and speed), I fail to see how legislation can override the Constitution, and fail to see how the TSA Search and Seizure rules are legal.
