Cranky Old Coot Alan Simpson Gives ‘Wretched’ Seniors Group a Piece of His Mind

Eighty year-old Alan Simpson, who typically saves his Grandpa Simpson outbursts for Grover Norquist, would prefer it if the California Alliance of Retired Americans quit their rambling, sat back and chewed their Jell-O slowly, and let the coherent adults handle the nation's fiscal crisis: 

Alan Simpson, a co-chairman of President Obama’s fiscal commission, has lashed out at a California seniors group for criticizing the debt panel’s proposals on Social Security. Simpson accused the California Alliance of Retired Americans (CARA) of pushing “blather and drivel,” and knocked the group for using the pictures of young people on a flyer. “What a wretched group of seniors you must be to use the faces of the very people that we are trying to save, while the 'greedy geezers' like you use them as a tool and a front for your nefarious bunch of crap,” Simpson, a former GOP senator from Wyoming, wrote to the group in a letter dated April 7 but sent out this month.
Shortly after making these statements, the former Senator was found snoring in a recliner in front of a TV broadcasting The People's Court.
