Stewart destroys Cramer, again

Someone, please put Jim Cramer out of Jon Stewart's misery.

I, for one, hope the feud between CNBC's Jim Cramer and "Daily Show" anchor Jon Stewart never ends, because Stewart's segments about the "Mad Money" host are only getting better.

Last night, Stewart responded to Cramer's recent barnstorming tour of CNBC affiliates NBC and MSNBC. Though the response, which you can view below, is a little long, it's worth every one of the precious minutes of productivity the already troubled American economy will lose today due to you all watching it. The best parts include the line, "To cheer up, I flip over to 'Morning Joe,' because I like my news like I like my coffee: white and bitter," and the ending, which I won't ruin for you, though I will say that any parents of small children are likely to find it particularly amusing, especially if said children are in the room as you watch.

For more on Cramer and his network, check out the great article elsewhere on Salon today by Gabriel Winant. He sacrificed his mental and physical well-being in order to bring you an account of the experience of watching an entire day of CNBC, so reading the piece is the least you can do -- flowers and a "get well" card would be a nice gesture, too.
