The head of President Obama's now defunct deficit commission apparently decided to see if he could outdo himself after his offensive "milk cows" statement on Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto.
Alan Simpson, co-chairman of President Barack Obama's debt commission, furthered his penchant for colorful commentary Monday when he unleashed a rambling diatribe targeting what he characterized as a generation of disrespectful youth and their confused grandparents.
"This is a fakery," the former Wyoming senator said on Fox News, referring to retirement-age Americans expressing fears about having Social Security funds slashed. "If they care at all about their children or grandchildren, and sometimes I doubt that -- I think, you know, grandchildren now don't write a thank-you for the Christmas presents, they're walking on their pants with the cap on backwards listening to the enema man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg, and they don't like them!"

In February, Simpson exhibited his flair for the dramatic when he called the White House's spending cut effort a "sparrow belch in the midst of the typhoon." The deficit, he later said, was "a stink bomb in the garden party and it’s never going to go away.”
Amazingly a little later in the segment as the topic turned to raising the debt limit, even Simpson admitted here that if there is a government shutdown, it will be the Republicans who end up taking the blame for it.
