Not A Fair Fight

I don't know what Jim Cramer thinks he's accomplishing by taking potshots at Jon Stewart. It's not that he's "punching down," which is just something you never do, it's that you're serving up hours of material for a well-trained group of comic writers just begging to make you look like a schmuck. And impugning Stewart's character, saying that he doesn't have the "guts" to pick stocks or make transcripts of his show (like The Daily Show airs in secret) misses the point entirely. This isn't a winnable fight.

Then again, this could be an elaborate setup for Cramer's appearance on The Daily Show Thursday night. Hopefully he'll ask about Deep Capture.
