The Lamestream Media refers to the deficit/debt song-and-dance team as "Simpson-Bowles" for former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) and Erskine Bowles, the former White House Chief of Staff for The Slickster. However, this blog's cartoonist-in-residence, Tom Tomorrow, reverses the name-order to Bowles-Simpson and arrives at an appropriate acronym for everything they say and do: B.S. The B.S.-boys have taken a prominent position in the national conversation about the nation debt and the budget deficit. Their pronouncements are full of B.S. If this is the (fair & balanced) study of biogas, so be it.
