Deficit Co-Chair Apologizes for Calling Social Security 'A Milk Cow with 310 Million T*ts'

Deficit Commission Co-Chair Apologizes for Calling Social Security 'A Milk Cow with 310 Million T*ts'; Feminist Groups Call for His Ouster

actual title

Former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., the GOP co-chair of the president’s 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, ‘It’s a doozy!’”

The White House said it didn’t play a role in Mr. Simpson’s 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 Woman’s 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 doesn’t think Simpson “has the judgment to make decisions that impact so many Americans, and in particular I represent older Americans and older female Americans.”

I don't miss Alan Simpson's RINOess, but I do miss his smart mouth.

And people wonder why Rush Limbaugh continually pokes fun at Feminazis - because they're ridiculous.

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.

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.

Knew when I read the headline that Simpson said it. He is an irreverent smart ass, but funny if he isn't tweaking your personal preferences.

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.

It's actually one cow with no teats and 310 million calves.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

Look idiot, the money in Social Security was taken from my pay check and in essence my salary in the employer's matching share in some vague promise about paying it back to me when I an old. The government however squandered MY money and left me with an IOU. I would be happy just to get back what the government took from me preferably as a lump sum so I can buy gold or foreign investments and maybe have something left. Instead I will have to be as old as Methuselah to collect a dime, be taxed again on what little I do get and may be denied getting anything because I am too well off financially.

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.

He must have accidently absconded with Joe Bidens diary.

obamma messed up by not inviting the AARP onto deficit reduction commission. The way the AARP screwed the senior citizens on health-care makes them the perfect entity to be on the commission. Then they could screw the seniors even more.

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.
