Kramer vs. Stewart

Jim Kramer, host of "Mad Money" on CNBC, is apparently worried about his reputation now that several of his worst bits of financial advice have been showcased on The Daily Show. Kramer has made appearances on several NBC programs in the last few days where it appears they are all throwing him a pity party. They're practically saying "Cheer up Jim, Jon Stewart's a jerk and just a a stupid mean comedian."

Unfortunately for Kramer, all this is really doing is providing more fodder for the writers at The Daily Show. It's wasn't personal the first time they mocked CNBC, but it's quickly turning into that. Kramer can't win either. Rather than admit his mistakes and take his licks, Kramer is trying to fight back, and it's not working. Stewart and The Daily Show writers are very good at what they do, and they don't take themselves seriously like Kramer does. Kramer thinks he's dueling for his honor while Stewart's weapon of choice is a water pistol. The longer this fight goes on, the more Kramer is going to lose.

Think it's Cramer and his appearance on Stewart's show was good.
