When Rep. Mo Brooks disagrees with MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, she sarcastically asks: “Do you have a degree in economics.” He replies: Yes, ma’am, I do. Highest honors.

This is a must see:

    Contessa is clearly too stupid to recognize when she is speaking with someone of superior knowledge and intellect, which is nearly everyone. It absolutely amazes me that MSNBC consistently hires such morons. Brewer couldn’t balance a checkbook much less intelligently discuss economics, yet she blathers on.

    Contessa along with Matthews and Madcow have the typical Dreangement Syndrome of the LEFTURDS of MSNBC….While they major in Stupidity, their Guests actually major in Economics… a foreign subject for Libturds and Liberal elected officials as apparently is MATH.. yes Conressa 2+2=4… try to remember that….

      Actually, Maddow was a Rhodes Scholar and earned a doctorate from Oxford University — not exactly a place that awards degrees to idiots.

    Brewer was trotting out the logical fallacy known as “appeal to authority,” and got her ass handed to her. By her own standards, she isn’t qualified to offer an opinion of the topic.

    “it is widely accepted that the housing downturn, which started in 2006, is a primary cause of the broader economic malaise.The current recession is one of the longest downturns since the Great Depression of the 1930′s. Some suggested that the best case scenario for the economy is that it would reach bottom in the second quarter of 2009. And even if that happens, that would still make this recession the longest since the Great Depression.

    Rich Yamarone, director of economic research at Argus Research, said the only good news for the economy is that some of the steps already taken by the government earlier this year could start to spur growth soon.”

    Republicans aren’t letting a crisis go to waste as they use the recession as an excuse to try to get rid of medicare and social security while protecting tax cuts for the rich and global police spending. Future seniors get to pay for invading Iraq.

      Which Republicans, exactly, are “try[ing] to get rid of medicare and social security”? Why don’t you name them? Oh, right… because you’re lying.

      Extra credit: Which president tripled the deficit in three years? Hint: it ain’t Bush.

            No worries. When Lou reveals his sources he just doesn’t understand how embarrassed he should be. Been that way forever

            at least I gave a warning to prevent heads from exploding

            jon,

            That you? I wondered where you went.

            I see Loud Dog is introducing new people to his singular mixture of dogma, dishonesty, and stupidity. He just can’t get enough of being called an idiot.

            Good to have you back.

          • loudog

            I do my best, with half my brain tied behind my back just to make it fair.

            So, the Republican Party doesn’t want to privatize soc sec and turn medicare into a voucher program? People in denial are a riot!

  • dymo

    You have to go a long way to believe that Brewer’s question was “sarcastic.” Man, I never saw so many teeny weeny dicks.

    • truebearing

      Ah, bought one of those funhouse mirrors, did ya. the only thing more teeny than your weeny is your brain.

    Just learned why lawyers are told never to ask a question they don’t know the answer to. Me to Rep. Mo Brooks, talking about why he disagrees with well-known economists that we were on the brink of another depression: “Do you have a degree in economics?” Him: “Yes I do. Graduated with honors.” … At least she admits goofing up!
