    are speaking out against Catfood Simpson, I think there's a better chance he'll be off the commission.

    When it was just progressives, the White House summarily dismissed the idea that Simpson should be removed, and said he'd apologized and would continue to serve.

    Last night, on the air, Keith Olbermann called for him to be ousted.  He also aired a response statement from the White House where they said that they did not agree with Simpson's statements and that given that he is a Republican, it should not be surprising that they disagree with him.  But this time, they did not specifically say that he would continue to serve.

    I tend to think he will resign, but I'm shaky on that.  He's an arrogant one.
