Two Great Clips: Deranged Old Man Wanders In Front Of Microphones And Begins Rambling About Deadbeats And Cultists; Nasty Bit of Gutter-Scrunt Plays Credentials Game, Gets Owned

Not that that's a new experience for her.

Contessa Brewer up first. Note Contessa is not asking questions; she's making assertions. She's arguing on behalf of Obama, of course.

And she decides to play the credentials game. Do you have a degree in economics? she demands to know. Not that she does, by the way, even though she's making substantive assertions about economics herself.

Her alleged "interviewee" -- actually her debate opponent -- leaves her sputtering.


Now, even though she doesn't have an economics degree, she does have a journalism degree, which journalists believe to be a General Degree of Expertise in Everything.

Not sure why they think that, but they do. They love demanding "Do you have a degree in science?" when arguing about Global Warming; the fact that they are non-scientists is not, for them, a barrier to arguing on the issue. But it's a barrier to non-journalists, apparently.

And then there's this alte kacher.

"The debate and fight is not between Democrats and Republicans. It's between some Republicans and their sort of cult fringe as I refer to them out there," Harkin said.

The Fringe of 55%, as we like to call it.
