CNBC whales on Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland. Relatedly: Ben Cardin is still alive.

The entertaining thing about this is that Ben Cardin is in fact pretty much a useless waste of a Senator.

Seriously, the guy’s been in Congress since 1987 (the Senate since 2007), and he’s done pretty much nothing.  Which is pretty much why CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo ripped into him for doing nothing but repeating the same stupid talking points about taxing the rich over and over and over again and never actually doing anything to solve the problem because Cardin doesn’t think that he has to.  Newsbusters grades her performance a little harshly, I think: while I agree that the Media’s been ignoring that the Democrats have been one-note wonders on fiscal issues (and that the Media’s ignoring our horrific spending problem), I also believe in positive feedback.  The goal is to get more of this, after all.
