It’s no surprise that Alan Simpson, a 79-year-old former senator and the current co-chairman of President Obama’s debt commission, isn’t quite familiar with rap stars Eminem and Snoop Dogg.

Does he think that poop is the cool thing among teens right now? We would hate them, too, if we thought that.
