You know a good one when you see it, the kind of smackdown you can refer to in a couple of words and others immediately nod their heads and say, “Oh hell yeah, THAT one, that must have left a mark!”
2009 yielded a bumper crop of juicy ones; we’ve got a list of some of the best compiled by our video gurus for your enjoyment, presented here in no particular order. Just treat them like a box of chocolates — take a bite of any one of them and enjoy.
Which one is your favorite? Do share in comments.
I have a couple smackdowns which didn’t make our video list though, no fault of our magical video masters who are always right on top of the day’s news. Who can ever forget the hosing which Jon Stewart gave CNBC’s Rick Santelli after Santelli “bailed out” as a guest? And who can ever forget the drubbing Stewart gave Jim Cramer shortly after? It was enough to make one think about putting all their money in a hole in the backyard rather than give it to so-called experts like Cramer. Here they are for your amusement, the Santelli smackdown first:
And the Cramer beatdown as a finale!
Bon appetit; bring on the next batch of smackdowns for 2010!
