Cavanaugh-Gasparino Rematch on Fox Biz: Thursday 11:40 Eastern

Charlie Gasparino is madder than Ru Paul locked in a Men's Wearhouse as his jihad against banking analyst Meredith Whitney continues to go nowhere. 

The other day, Reason Senior Editor Tim Cavanaugh got shanghaied into Gasparino's war on Whitney, and explained why beating up on one woman won't make the truly awful news in the muni bond market go away. 

Gasparino insists on a rematch. 

Time: Thursday 11:40 AM Eastern time, 8:40 Pacific. 

Place: Fox Business News. 

Gasparino's effort to keep attention focused on Whitney's 2010 comments about municipal defaults has been very energetic, and it has brought in his Fox Biz colleagues. Here's a video of the all-stars trying, with no success at all, to get Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-North Carolina) interested in serving Whitney with a subpoena. Watch at 2:13 for another appearance of the bond-fund performance chart that purportedly shows Whitney's comments causing a market crash, but that, as astute commenter Joshua Corning pointed out the other day, actually does not show this at all:

    Shut up small dick! You can't talk about me if you don't have a big dick like Daddy's!

    Stop spoofing me! All you little boys are all the same!

  • Rather Retarded||

    Oh yeah that reminds me, my doctor told me to warn you guys about my condition:

    Menstrual psychosis has the following characteristics: a) acute onset, against a background of normality; b) brief duration, with full recovery; c) psychotic features: confusion, stupor and mutism, delusions, hallucinations, or a manic syndrome; d) a circa-mensual (approximately monthly) periodicity, in rhythm with the menstrual cycle.

    That's not what you got then.

    I've taken in a feral admantine binded assassin that tried to kill me, a telepath who destroyed a world with her mind, and a big dork with explosive rays in his eyes, but this one, this crazy ass ho Rather, I will not take in.

    It's a moral position and I stand by it.

    I didn't get a chance to ask you in the thread earlier today, but why do you carry a gun that weighs 23+ oz? Don't you find it annoying?

  • rather||

    Epi has morals-how cute!

  • Rather Retarded||

    I have a moral: All men are small dick boys who can't compare to Daddy.

  • Warty||

    Not really. A decent gun belt does wonders to distribute the weight. Like one of theirs.

    Of course, I am a giant stalking the earth and I laugh at weights less than a quarter ton.

  • ||

    That looks pretty comfortable, but I often carry in my coat or in a pocket. I cannot emphasize enough how insanely light my Kel-Tec is. It's like it's not even there. And the P32 is 2 oz lighter. You really have to hold one, fully loaded, to properly grasp how light it is.

    I bought it as a summer gun, but it's just so unobtrusive that it's going into full rotation.

  • ||

    How's the recoil on it though?

  • ||

    As brutal as one would expect from a gun that light. It's not exactly fun to shoot. Your hand will pay to a certain extent.

  • rather||

    A duel would be entertaining

  • Rather Retarded||

    Don't be ridiculous, little boys with small dicks can't duel.

    I am onboard for any TV show that features Meredith Whitney as long as it involves her taking off her clothes.

    No point in being polite with Gasparino, Tim. The second he tries to talk over you, yell at him to shut up and call him an idiot for not noticing Joshua's point about the graph. The next time he tries, scream that he can't read a graph, and call him an idiot again. Repeat until he realizes that his stupidity will be on display every time he attempts to bulldoze you.

  • ||

    Actually, the most effective technique I have seen for ending the "talking-out-of-turn" gambit is to calmly put your finger to your lips and go, "Shhhh."

    I once saw it used in such a way that I literally thought the guy on the receiving end was going to have a stroke right then and there.

  • Spoonman.||

    This would be excellent. Yelling just brings you down to their level.

  • Otto||

    Good point. I still think that calling Gasparino a moron while bringing his stupidity out into the open would be a worthwhile thing to do, though.

  • ||

    Ladies and Gentlemen. I give you the Astute Joshua Corning!

    Look upon him, and tremble!

    THE MUNI BOND CALL

    Sounds more like a muni bond put.

  • Mr Whipple®©™||

    Can't they find some common ground, like beating up on Blythe Masters instead?

  • GILMORE||

    Gasparino insists on a rematch.

    What, with himself? I don't recall him actually talking to Tim last time. How is it a 'contest' when Gasperino says, 'you're not even qualified to talk about this; go read a book or something'? (fair paraphrase)

  • ||

    Well, that was worthless.

  • ||

    Drat- missed it.

    I assume Gasparino was his usual huffing and puffing content-free self.

  • ||

    calling Gasparino a moron while bringing his stupidity out into the open would be a worthwhile thing to do, though.

    I find it hard to believe anybody doesn't already know Gasparino is a moron.

    But I have been wrong before.
