Life inside The Village

This sentence, typed up by Howard Kurtz at the WashPost, offers a nice window into the world of the corporate Beltway press and just how skewed its view of politics is. The context was Kurtz thought it was a huge deal that CNBC's Jim Cramer went running off at the mouth again and criticized Obama's budget as "radical."

Wrote Kurtz [emphasis added]:

The reason this is noteworthy is that Cramer is a liberal Democrat who, for example, strongly backed his former Goldman Sachs colleague Jon Corzine for New Jersey governor.

Got that? Because professional Wall Street cheerleader Jim Cramer has backed his friend and former Goldman Sachs CEO, that makes Cramer a liberal Democrat.

Only in The Village.

BTW, liberal Democrats don't talk like this.
