"Are You Guys Incompetent or What?"
Another one of those questions that answers itself, this time posed by CNBC's Maria ("the Money Honey") Bartiromo to Senator Cardin (D. Stupidity). H/T Insty and everyone else. Excerpt from the Breitbart article but the video says it all.
After Bartiromo called Cardin (and all Democrats) out for their duplicitous approach the traders erupted in cheers and applause. They were rewarding her for finally doing what most anchors and reporters refuse to do. Instead of reporting on the fiscal cliff negotiations like it's a football game or a soap opera, we need journalists to actually know the facts and to challenge the narratives presented by the politicians who are trotted out in front of the cameras.

Cardin was not used to being challenged and he wilted. The traders were not used to seeing the challenge and they cheered Bartiromo. We need to see more of this. Who will step up and join Bartiromo? Anyone?
I had the hots for Bartiromo before but now I've gone to point like a setter.
