The Elderly Should Not Talk About Pop Culture

Alan Simpson

Former Senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyoming) is a co-chair on President Obama’s debt commission. Last fall, that committee issued a series of tough recommendations, some of which involved cutting Social Security and Medicare programs. Well, he’s been defending his recommendations. Today on Fox News he discussed the cuts. While urging the elderly to help make the future for their children and grandchildren, he somehow launched onto this rant…

“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 a non-related note, John McCain may not be as tech savvy as you might think. During an appearance on “This Week” the Arizona Senator said that iPads and iPods are “built in the United States of America.” As most people know, they are actually built in China. His office later said that the senator recognized the devices were designed in the USA, but made elsewhere.
