Give Me Mo Brooks

U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (Rep. AL) took on MSNBC news anchor Contessa Brewer today. This is priceless.

For the full interview in context, go here.

Brewer was trying to explain to Rep. Brooks that we would be in a “depression” if not for salvational force of the bailouts! This, predictably so, led Rep. Brooks to disagree. Brewer stopped her vital educational lecture to brazenly ask the Representative if he had a degree in economics. (Because, you know, if he didn’t, he would be obviously less qualified to hold an opinion than a news anchor.)

Mo Brooks unexpected response, “Yes ma’am, I do. Highest honors.” According to Brooks’ Congressional biography he, “graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics. In 1978, he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.”

Sometimes we just have to realize that a U.S. Representative with an economics, political science and law degree might — just might — know more than a random MSNBC news anchor.
