This is unsurprising. The primary journal of Versailles Media, Kaplan Test Prep Daily (the Washington Post, kept aloft by its for-profit education parent) backs Alan Simpson’s play on Social Security. Sure, he’s ‘brash,’ ‘colorful,’ and ‘intemperate.’ According to the WaPo. What the editorial overlooks is his ignorance: Simpson is wrong about Social Security’s solvency.

The Obama White House signaled Alan Simpson today that he can say whatever damn-fool thing he wants, and since he’s the GOP co-chair of Obama’s Catfood Commission, it’s to be expected that Simpson will say some things Obama will disagree with.

This whole “I never intended” Alan Simpson apology has gotten entirely out of hand when the person to whom the insult was directed still wants Simpson to resign from the Catfood Commission while the White House, an unrelated party to the insult or the apology, accepts Simpson’s apology.
