What if they held an election and nobody watched? Alan Simpson on low levels of midterm enthusiasm

His short answer: "People are tired of the whole thing, just sick of it..."

    How very sad to see Reliable Sources providing a national platform to Alan Simpson's personal hysteria of misinformation and pointless name calling. Why? He has never been right about a single thing. Why have him on?
    Yes, people are sick and tired of being set adrift in the sea of lies promulgated from radical right wing economic and political prevarications and mis-statements while our supposedly truth seeking media enable and encourage their most outrageously ridiculous and radical statements.
    Who can blame the electorate. They are literally drowning in the ocean of lies which our media can only meekly repeat.
    Sorry Reliable Sources, but Alan Simpson has only soiled your credentials. Along with his personal belief that seniors are weak losers sucking the life out of America, his folksy "Westerners" know the truth is simply ridiculous and you are ridiculous to allow him to spout such silliness.
    Pitiful reporting. A sixth grader would do better. A wind up toy flipping a coin would do better.
