Oh, yes, he said it

CARSON CITY — Yes, embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks — whose mental health has been questioned in recent weeks — gave critics more ammo today, by paying me a compliment.

“Mr. Sebelius,” Brooks said on a nearly deserted Assembly floor when he saw me approaching. “The only man with integrity around here.”

Of course, he said that in the legislative building, so that bar isn’t exactly high.

Here’s a video of the exchange, shot by intrepid master senior photographer Alex Brauer of 8NewsNow’s I-Team:

Nathan Baca: "A bad man"?

Just before that, Brooks told me that I was a “good man.” But that only served to confuse me, since this morning, he spoke with my 8NewsNow I-Team colleague Nathan Baca, to say, “I’m a bad man, but bad is good.”

So, if bad is good, and I’m good, then isn’t that bad?

But, on Wednesday, he told Baca that Baca was “a bad man.” So, that must mean that Baca is good?

It’s just so confusing.

    Since Steven Brooks has elected to jump into fray full force, I say let the mud wrestling ensue in full force. He gets what is coming his way and he deserves it.
    All things considered, is a compliment from Steven Brooks really a good thing? If it IS good does that mean its actually bad?

    OK retract most of that. Action News 13 says he is taking 30 day leave of absence. Hope he gets well but it was really bad of him to try and stay public through this.
    And darn it, the mud wrestling will have to be all about issues and beards now.

    Good thing. Get well Steven Brooks.

    Oh no.

    Mr. Brooks has just done the unthinkable.

    He has made Mr. Sebelius full of himself now. It’ll go to his head. Inflated head so big he can’t fit through doors anymore. He’ll go off on tangents where he is unable to listen to anyone anymore. Mostly because of the voices in his head that tell him how awesome he is, drowning out everyone else. Thinking he is now the best thing since the invention of cruise control. Mr. Sebelius has now officially went over to the dark side of news reporters.

    Damn you, Mr. Brooks. You wrecked Mr. Sebelius. Traumatized for life now. Damn you…

    Good one Colin!

    Get Knapp on the case, and call Art Bell…this looks like Brooks is processed by a demon and needs exorcism not mental health care.

    Good talking horses know Art no longer lives in Pahrump.
