“Do you have a degree in journalism?”

I was going to read about the so-called “Gang of Six” on the Hill, those three Democrats and three Republicans who are hammering out a deal for the budget that "everybody" can supposedly live with. Meanwhile I was made aware of yet another empty suit on MSNBC, known in polite company as Contessa Brewer, interviewing Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL), challenging his facility with economic matters. It seems that, according to his staff ...

Mo 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.

There, there, sweetie, we really don't give a rat's @$$ what you think. Just tell us what happened today like a good newsgirl. Besides, we can't all be Chris Matthews.

I saw this... it'd be priceless if what anyone says on MSNBC mattered. This would be ironic if it weren't so expected.
