I’m guessing that Jon Stewart doesn’t respond to everyone who calls him lazy or uninformed, but he did respond to Paul Krugman:
|The Daily Show with Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Paul Krugman & the Trillion Dollar Coin|
I was really hoping for Stewart to be like “fine, you want me to stop messing around? Here’s the deal with the platinum coin.” and then bust out some economics, or at least bust out a rant against the morons at Fox News who probably still think it take a trillion dollars worth of platinum to make the coin. A such, I can’t help but be a little disappointed. Paul Krugman is still not impressed either.
Either in fairness or in contrast (I can’t decide which), Stewart follows up the Krugman debacle with a pretty good piece on the supposed lack of women and minorities surrounding Obama that pretty much echoes what I’ve been ranting about for the last week.
