With CNBC, Who Needs the Comedy Channel?

Larry and I were just eating pizza (carbo loading while we can still afford it) and watching Maria "Money Honey" Bartiromo shriek her way through CNBC's Closing Bell, and who comes on for a commentary? It's my old BrandThis! pal Patricia Chadwick.

Patty's first comment was, "I've never had so much cash in my life," to which Larry and I simultaneously (clearly we've lived together too long) shouted at the TV, "Bitch!" and then muttered something about nobody liking a braggart.

Clearly she was referring to the equity/bond/cash balance of her investment portfolio(s), but still ... with all that media training she's had, you'd think she'd choose her lead-ins a little more carefully.

A segment or so later, another pundit comes on, looks directly at Maria and says, "There's probably a $200 billion hole out there."

How dare you, sir!

I thought only Todd Thompson was allowed to call her that.

Thank you. Thank you very much. I'm here all week. Try the veal and tip your servers.
