The latest outrage from Alan Simpson

Fresh off apologizing for calling Social Security "a milk cow with 310 million tits," former senator Alan Simpson has done it again.

He actually said that the military veterans who saved this country "are ... not helping us to save the country in this fiscal mess."

Apparently Simpson, who co-chairs President Obama's deficit commission (aka the "Catfood Commission"), was commenting on a report that diabetes is the most frequently compensated ailment among Vietnam veterans.
