Jon Stewart Is Out for Blood

Okay, so I saw a video at PostBourgie with Jon Stewart taking CNBC to task:


And then after that, Jim Cramer went on the Daily Show to answer (In three parts) :


This is amazing. Cramer gets excoriated. Nobody, apparently, gives a shit that the little people are getting screwed. Stewart is looking out for us. But here's the problem: JON STEWART ISN'T A JOURNALIST!

Kudos to Jon Stewart. Fuck the capitalists.

Plus an update: I'm tired. Busy and tired. That's not going to change anytime soon. I'm looking forward to my mom and Michele's parents getting here tomorrow night. That is all.

I don't have cable but I watched the entire episode during lunch the other day, and it was GOLD!

It reminded me a lot of the appearance that Stewart made on Crossfire a few years ago, widely credited with getting Crossfire canned.

In this case two, he echoed what people actually think about this stuff, in a manner that was far more eloqent and convincing than the rest of us could muster. Its seemed like he either knew what Cramer was going to say, or he thinks on his feet like a mad man.

Very nice, and the video of Cramer he used was absolutely devastating.

I would draft Stewart for President if we didn't already have a competent one.

(I secretly wished four years ago that the ballot in 2008 would read Obama/Stewart.)
