Alan Simpson nails MoveOn.org

The ultra-left mob, gathered under the banner of MoveOn.org, apparently thinks that it has nailed former Sen. Alan Simpson with a tap (below) of him calling social security recipients "lesser people."

Simpson, co-chairman of a budget commission examining ways to reduce the deficit, was stopped by a MoveOn person (I assume) and questioned about the financial health of social security. MoveOn wants Simpson to resign for the "lesser people" remark, but watch the tape and you will clearly see that his meaning was akin to talking about the "common man," "regular guy" and other phrasing that expresses a concern for people who have trouble keeping up financially. Or whatever euphemism you want to use. 
But who should be surprised that the frenzied minds at MoveOn are twisting someone's words to make him look ridiculous. More important, MoveOn apparently didn't think that Simpson would stand his ground, and call MoveOn's scare tactics what it is: Bullshit.
Obviously, MoveOn couldn't find anything substantive to criticize so it resorts to personal attacks. Pitiful.
