Cramer Still Smarting From Stewart Smackdown

File under “sour grapes,” perchance? CNBC’s highly animated “Mad Money” pundit Jim Cramer is attempting to do some damage control after being thoroughly owned by Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” a month ago.

Jon Stewart Is Mad as Hell

What’s more offensive than CNBC reporter Rick Santelli’s rant against Barack Obama’s supposed intention to throw only a table scrap of bailout money to foreclosed homeowners? His network’s laughable coverage of the biggest economic news story since the Great Depression.
