CNN's Resident Assclown Rick "Dirty" Sanchez vs. "Bigot" Jon Stewart and the Jewish Media Conspiracy

There are not enough words to describe the extent to which Rick Sanchez has -- without fail, time and time again -- aired out the worst aspects of his arrogant, patently unlikeable persona -- one which seems to thrive on his own incompetence like it's an anabolic steroid -- on full display, defying the figurative physics of stupidity. And today, Sanchez has taken us into a new, gilded Era of Incompetence.

Mediaite's Steve Krakauer files today on the most exciting case of paranoid antisemitism this side of Mel Gibson, watching as CNN's Rick Sanchez melts down.

Beleaguered by punch after punch to his massive-yet-delicate ego from the likes of media critics, viewers, and funnypeople like The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, Sanchez finally reaches a breaking point, and takes his stress out on the listeners of Pete Dominick's Sirius/XM radio show, Stand Up! With Pete Dominick, first calling Jon Stewart a "bigot," a stance, when pressed further, he explained in the tune of crazy: "I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I'm so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine." And this makes him a bigot? Dominick pressed further to find out who Stewart is bigoted towards, to which Sanchez responded with projected, transparent insecurity: "Everybody else who's not like him. Look at his show, I mean, what does he surround himself with?"

By everyone else who's not like him what Sanchez probably means is those without the ratings he has, like me. Alchemizing an inferiority complex into oppression? Feels like we've heard this before. Which is funny, because then, Rick Sanchez goes after the Jews, and loops Stewart in with the rest of the Jewish Media Conspiracy:

I'm telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority? Yeah.

Maybe it's worth noting that Sanchez just lost his 8 p.m. slot to another Jew, former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, whose show starts on Monday. Here is Sanchez effectively ending his career:

A representative from Comedy Central declined to comment to us on behalf of Stewart of The Daily Show. Like everyone else, I've tried to get comment from CNN, to no avail. And Sanchez, oblivious as ever, had this for everyone:
