Rick Santelli on Huff Post: “Like That’s the Pinnacle of Journalism? Come On”

Santelli_7.31.jpgThis morning, CNBC’s Joe Kernen was goading Rick Santelli into another Tea Party moment. It didn’t quite happen.

Kernen: Remember when you made that comment about everybody paying for their neighbor’s mortgages? What about paying for your neighbor’s clunkers, what do all those guys think?

Santelli: I don’t like any of those plans. I think, you know… Once again, I will stress, help first-time buyers, help young people get their first car. You know, help the people whose behavior down the road, and they didn’t commit sins, maybe we could condition them to actually be free market entrepreneurs, get this thing going again. Young people will pay for it, let’s give them some of the darn benefits.

Kernen: Seeing if we got enough yet to show up on the Huffington Post or something. I don’t think we have enough yet Rick.

Santelli: Who cares? Who cares, if you show up there or not. Like that’s the pinnacle of journalism? Come on!! They’re going to do investigative reporting, what a joke.

Kernen: Now we might. Thanks buddy.
