It really came down to Cramer v. Cramer, as the unfortunate -- "what was he thinking to be on Stewart's show" -- purported pundit essentially was foisted by his own petard. Stewart -- never afraid of a challenge -- as expected, outsmarted Cramer at every turn ... and, with Cramer's own highly troubling words from an earlier interview. Cramer's constant refrain of "I should do better" and "you do nothing wrong by criticizing me" rung hollow. If that were the case, why was Cramer so alarmed by Stewart's shenanigans in the first place. His strategy of contrition simply back-fired. He is the host of "Mad Money"! C'mon, get mad! Fire back! But, there was none of that.
