So, this brings us to MSNBC's Contessa Brewer, noted here.
Ms Brewer was interviewing Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL). Already you know he is not someone to have sound opinions on things, being a Republican, from Alabama, and you have never heard of him.
Ms Brewer noted that "if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling, the country would be "reverting into a depression." The Congressman disagreed.
Ms Brewer responded by asking him if he had a degree in economics. Ever polite, Rep Brooks responded:
"Yes ma'am, I do. Highest honors".It is worse. His Mother taught econ to high school students (his Father was an Electrical Engineer). Rep Brooks graduated from Duke with a double major, one of which was economics, and he did it in three years. The 'gene is here.
Frustrated with Congress to the degree that I am, I still have to give it the edge over the MSM.
