Simpson apologized, and now Milbank writes that despite this "udder debacle," he shouldn't have:
Simpson was merely paraphrasing the satirist H.L. Mencken, who once said FDR regarded the government as "a milk cow with 125 million teats." Tit is a variation of teat, from the Middle English tete, from the Old English titt, from the Middle High German zitze. It's vulgar when referring to a woman's anatomy, but Simpson was talking about a cow.Or, to quote another Simpson, "Don't have a cow, man."
