Deficit Commission Co-Chair Apologizes for Calling Social Security 'A Milk Cow with 310 Million T*ts'; Feminist Groups Call for His Ouster
Former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., the GOP co-chair of the presidents deficit commission, apologized today for sending an email to a female activist for seniors in which he described Social Security as a milk cow with 310 million t*ts.
Over the last 40 years, I have had my size 15 feet in my mouth a time or two, Simpson wrote in a letter to the activist, Ashley Carson, on the official stationery of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. (You can read his letter HERE.) To quote my old friend and colleague, Senator Lloyd Bentsen, when I make a mistake, Its a doozy!
The White House said it didnt play a role in Mr. Simpsons mea culpa. He was a senator and been around politics long enough to come to the realization on his own, one senior White House official told ABC News.
Carson, the executive director of the National Older Womans League (OWL), told ABC News, I appreciate his apology and that it was such a rapid response, but what he said calls for greater action. Carson said she doesnt think Simpson has the judgment to make decisions that impact so many Americans, and in particular I represent older Americans and older female Americans.

And people wonder why Rush Limbaugh continually pokes fun at Feminazis - because they're ridiculous.
Plain and simple.
Somebody actually gets it.
A dead cow...
Isn’t it amazing how these pols can be truthful when the spectre of the next election is not looming?
If he had said “teats,” would that be any better? The lefties’ niggardly vocabularies are cause for constant consternation (and hilarity).
Pretty funny that I knew it was Simpson without reading any further.
I guess I don’t get the problem. Why did he think he had to apologize?
But with his history he was probably the wrong person to say that. On second thought, isn’t the person who sexualizes a milk cow really the sick person? I think I will give Simpson a skate on this one.
No doubt! That there is hilarious
OMG! I burst out laughing after reading that!
One word, Milk. Milk is white and tasty which clearly makes Simpson a racist.
Welcome to liberalworld.
What is it he’s apologizing for? Telling the truth?
This is exactly why I fear America is doomed.
We are facing $Trillions in debt and almost gauranteed bankruptcy of Soc. Sec. and the Gov’t.
Yet the MSM can’t discuss that, but prefers to raise up and focus on some obscure, inconsequential advocacy group who complains about the word “tits.”
Simpson: I am sorry for calling social security a milk cow with 310 million t1ts. I have been out of Washington for a while. I will try not to tell the truth again.
Oh, good grief. These feminist groups are looney. They cry and whine about someone saying t***s, but they don’t say a word about how Muslims treat women under sharia law.
I am sorry that he is on the Deficit committee because he is just as bad as Obama in his own way. I believe that like Obama, Simpson is a legend in his own mind.
They call for his ouster ONLY because he’s a Republican. Their vicious outrage is reserved only for normal people, not for wacko libs.
They wait for Republicans to say something that they can get him on, and then pounce. But when a crazy wacko lib does worse things, they ignore it.
I’ll have to masticate on your reply for a while...
Read the 1936 Social Security brochure and laugh... http://www.ssa.gov/history/ssn/ssb36.html
He must have accidently absconded with Joe Bidens diary.
I am proud of our former senator Simpson, he tells it like it is.

How’s that Hope & Change working for ya’, liberals!
That line just shows that no one is paying attention!
I wish people would quit apologizing every time the truth slips out — it’s not like a fart.
Oh good grief. I’m a woman and I have no problem with this. It’s accurate and I’ve personally made remarks about someone sucking the government tit more than once. They DO NOT speak for all women and I wish they’d get it through their pea brains. They don’t like it cause he spoke the truth.
>> with 310 Million T*ts’
Can’t any politician Buck up and say: ‘Yes I said it, and I meant it !’ ?
