Patterico's Pontifications


The Money Honey Goes Off

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:28 pm

Maria Bartiromo unloads on a Democrat hack, yelling at him for acting as if his side thinks the American people are stupid. Very satisfying:

I’ll join the traders in applauding.

Thanks to Dana.


  1. How do you solve a problem like Maria?

  2. Perhaps the TEA Party is not as dead as some within the Beltway might wish.

    As to (1) above, one way to get rid of her and shut her up would be to appoint her as SecState.

  3. Funny, Scott!

    I have played this a couple of times over the past few days. I hardly could believe my eyes!

  5. I can’t recall exactly what it was about but she made some comment in the last year or so that was right in line with the Democrat narrative. I would guess she’s center left and voted for Obama twice, and was expecting Obama to move toward the center after the election.

  6. She probably had the expectation his first term would be nothing like it was as well.

  7. Each time I hear some Democrat speak of “working families” I am reminded that the Dems don’t care one damn bit about “working families”.

    Each time I hear people say “the American people aren’t stupid” I am reminded they just re elected Obama.

  15. No wonder Joey Ramone had such a huge crush on her.

  16. I would guess she’s center left and voted for Obama twice, and was expecting Obama to move toward the center after the election.

    Maria Bartirom leans left? If so, is she so naive (or dumb) to not be fully aware that the current president is a hard-core, unrepentant, scroungy, godamn-America liberal?

    I’m not sure if your assumptions about her are correct. But if they are, then she of all people shouldn’t be surprised that some observers out there do believe people throughout the USA are stupid. After all, if she did, in fact, vote for Obama several weeks ago, she need look no further than the mirror to see “stupid.”
