Cramer Responds to Stewart

In related news Cramer replaced



Norm, if Cramer is indeed on the Daily Show this Thursday, I trust I'll be able to watch it here.

You will.

The "HE'S A COMEDIAN!" line will probably just make it worse since he could always go back and dig up more crap from him and use all his words against him. I really hope he's a guest and that Kramer gets what he deserves!

Amused to death…

as much as i enjoy all the cramer bashing, i'd much prefer we would simply go back to ignoring him.

Two things to note here: first, Cramer's self-defense is nearly as funny as Stewart's takedown: "I said sell October 2008." Um Jim, that's weeks after Bear and Lehman had failed; AIG was already owned by the Feds. The barn doors had kind of been blown off by then, Jim.

Second: even on KO's show, the muddy media formula for giving credibility to delusion is perpetuated. The anchor doesn't dare point out the obvious fallacy in Cramer's defense (see above); but merely says, "this battle will go on."

Cramer is a PT Barnum media act straight out of the Rush Limbaugh mold. That's how he made his wealth and keeps it; now it's time to own up and live with the consequences of being a clown.

my thoughts exactly.

Jim Cramer: “I think the administration should attack Warren Buffett instead of the little guys who come on TV and say the averages are down a lot”

btw, in October 2008, this is what Warren Buffet was saying: "A simple rule dictates my buying: Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful. And most certainly, fear is now widespread, gripping even seasoned investors. To be sure, investors are right to be wary of highly leveraged entities or businesses in weak competitive positions. But fears regarding the long-term prosperity of the nation’s many sound companies make no sense. These businesses will indeed suffer earnings hiccups, as they always have. But most major companies will be setting new profit records 5, 10 and 20 years from now.

Let me be clear on one point: I can’t predict the short-term movements of the stock market. I haven’t the faintest idea as to whether stocks will be higher or lower a month — or a year — from now."

This stock advise comes in stark contrast to the short-term conviction that accompanies recommended stock picks from Jim Cramer. It's not being wrong that is the problem with Cramer; it's the energetic boisterous certitude about that which is so uncertain.

Yes, John Stewart is merely a comedian.

But Jim Cramer is a fucking clown.

I can only hope (no doubt too optimistically) that this will bring Cramer down followed in short order by the very idea that it's more profitable to substitute shlocky, allegedly entertaining assclowns like Cramer in place of genuinely capable analysts and journalists because the public not only do not know the difference but actually prefer the assclowns. Give me one boring old man who speaks sooth over a thousand manic idiots with farting sound boards.

Next stop, Limbaugh, a man who arguably is his own farting sound board. Right. I'm sure that optimism is going to work out quite well for me.

Jon Stewart is the fucking man! I hope he gets Cramer canceled just like Crossfire...
