Stewart to grill the BOSS and other stuff....

The Crazy Right (ie Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, et al) would have you believe that the New York Times is the leader of a left wing conspiracy to destroy America. Of course, they also believe that w was a great President and that Saddam was behind 9/11. So, again, here is proof that the Times actually is in favor of good policy: Another editorial in support of free trade.

There is a danger that the populist wave sweeping the country will move us away from the gains of trade made over the past decades. Smoot-Hawley II, as I am now calling this movement, will only make this Great Recession worse, just as the original did to the Great Depression.

Last Thursday Jon Stewart grilled Cramer to a crispy crackle. Tonight he takes on Bruce Springsteen. Look for a little less grilling, and a lot more genuflecting.

Finally, I can tell you Obama is wrong on one thing for sure: Memphis, not UNC, wins the big dance, and I buy a 48 inch flat screen with my pool winnings.
