Marshall: Simpson should resign from deficit panel

Speaking in Charlotte, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elaine Marshall called for the ouster of former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson as co-chair of the president’s deficit reduction commission.

In an e-mail to a female critic, Simpson said Social Security has become “like a milk cow with 310 million t*ts! Call when you get honest work!”

“His remarks were disrespectful to women, they were disrespectful to Social Security recipients,” Marshall told a luncheon of Uptown Democrats on Women’s Equality Day, reports Jim Morrill of the Charlotte Observer. “He should resign immediately.”

Simpson, who co-chairs the commission with UNC President Erskine Bowles, has since apologized.

Marshall reserved most of her remarks for her race, which she called “absolutely, unequivocally winnable.”

She faces Republican Sen. Richard Burr and Libertarian Michael Beitler in November.

Simpson is psychologically unfit for public service

Simpson should resign post haste -- or he should certainly be asked to retire as promptly as possible.  I wonder what Richard Burr thinks about this appalling development.  Since he has said nothing, it appears as if he agrees with Simpson!

Elaine...

Why not ask Obama to fire him?  Better yet, DEMAND he fire him.  He hired the guy.  

Maybe he could give Shirley Sherrod the job.

ROFLMAO! Go Elaine!

funny as heck girl.
