Just watched John Stewart's interview with Jim Cramer. I didn't understand half of it, but even I recognized the disemboweling that just happened. I don't think Cramer expected it at ALL. You'd think these guys would learn not to underestimate people like Stewart. He's a lot better at this game than they think.

i feel: amused amused

I cannot believe I flaked on that last night. I was watching the re-runs leading up to it, ate dinner, watched the Colbert Report even, and somewhere between talking to my Laurel and flopping down to figure a few things out about this weekend and jewelrymaking, I totally missed it.

I'm glad CNN has it on their site. I'll listen to it when I get home, but I am not surprised in the least that Jon Stewart took the guy to task. The previews leading up to this have been amusing to say the least. :)

Oh my lord that was AWESOME. You'd think these guys would know better. What arrogant punks.

Cramer took the evisceration better, though -- no whining to "Be funny, Jon."

Either Cramer is smarter than I gave him credit for, or he got some good coaching before he went on TDS last night. He took it far better than I expected.

I think he got some coaching, and possibly someone sent him a YouTube link.

i only caught about half of it... and there was another 10 minutes are so that never got to the air. Stewart is NOT to be trifled with. He is intelligent, has a really fast wit, can think on his feet, and can make grown men cry. Cramer never stood a chance.

They think that because he's a comedian that he's all about the lulz. They really need to do better research before they tangle with him.
