It’s not really clear if Alan Simpson is an offensive politician or just a hilariously senile one. The former Wyoming senator was appointed by President Obama as co-chair for the Administration’s debt commission and while he has been working hard on solutions to get our country out of the growing $14 trillion dollar hole we are stuck in.

However, if there is one person livening up the talk over the incredibly depressing debt- it’s this guy. During an appearance on Fox News, Simpson somehow went from explaining who would be affected by changes in social security to unleashing a whole bunch of crazy on ungrateful grandkids, who he says are too caught up in hip-hop.

“This is a fakery,” Simpson said on Fox News. “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!”

We can only assume by ‘enema man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg,’ that Simpson means Eminem and Snoop Dogg. Close sir, close.

Outbursts like that would make one think that maybe Obama selected an off the wall candidate for the job- he did on purpose. In many ways, Simpson’s candor brings the Joe Biden ‘blue dog’ appeal that Dems need to appeal to their base and reach across the aisle. And lest his rant on the youngings had you fooled- Simpson later went on to make some salient points- including why he thinks the word ‘cut’ should be dropped from the public discourse on social security and why young voters should be paying more attention to the current debates.

Aside from his political leadership, Simpson is known for his salacious comments. On the milder end of the spectrum is the time he called the federal deficit “”a stink bomb in the garden party and it’s never going to go away.” And on the raunchier side of things is the time Simpson wrote an email to the executive of the Older Women’s League, casually referencing the nation as “a milk cow with 310 million tits.”

He may not be down with hip-hop- but it seems like the man has some sense worth listening to.
