“Do you have a degree in economics?”
Matt Lewis flags this must-see moment from MSNBC, admittedly a phrase heard only slightly more often than “the good judgment of Anthony Weiner.” Contessa Brewer gets into an argument over economic policy with Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), and tries to talk him down by snidely asking him whether he has a degree in economics … which, to Brewer’s embarrassment, Brooks does:
Brooks actually has three degrees: political science, economics, and law. As a lawyer, Brooks would have been experienced enough not to make Brewer’s mistake in a cross-examination, which is to ask a question without first knowing the answer. Not only that, but Brewer was being flat-out rude as well as foolish; MSNBC invited Brooks to appear to get his perspective on the issues. If their hosts respond by belittling them (whether it backfires or not), what does that say about MSNBC, its management, and the kind of invitations they make?

I saw this earlier. Pure pwnage gold. The people at MSNBC really are the poster children for the mental retardation on the Left. What a twit."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

What if the answer had been "No?" Would that have made his opinion any less valid? What about her? Does she have an economics degree? If not, she should not have asked this question in a "gotcha" manner. She is DUmb as a stone.:mad:Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

She graduated magna cum laude from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism in 1996, as well as a Certificate of Contemporary Europe following her political studies in Strasbourg

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
