Clueless... Part 794

Alan Simpson is a former Republican Senator from Wyoming now serving on the President's bipartisan committee on deficit reduction. Ashley Carson is the Executive Director of the 30-year-old National Older Women's League (OWL). For some reason, Simpson decided to write a letter to Carson. Here is an excerpt:

"If you have some better suggestions about how to stabilize Social Security instead of just babbling into the vapors, let me know," he writes. "And yes, I've made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know 'em too. It's the same with any system in America. We've reached a point now where it's like a milk cow with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!"

Now Simpson's foot is in his mouth, and his appointment on the commission is on the line. I don't wonder why.

Not just Simpson, he's just the mouthpiece. The whole Catfood Commission should be deep sixed and I mean really with cement overshoes and all.
