Let Them Eat Chocolate Chip Cookies

We're being bombarded by so many wingnut and mainstream media talking points, it's nearly impossible to keep track. History probably won't record this whirlwind of concern trolling, presidential analysis, or the madness of Glenn Beck, but a funny talking point caught my attention in all of this.

Erin Burnett appeared on the Today show earlier this month and reminded people that even in the worst economic times, businesses and entrepreneurs continue to innovate. She then repeated the historical tid-bit that the chocolate chip cookie was invented during the Great Depression. But the way she delivered that fact...well, go judge for yourself. Some men think she's hot. I just think she's a former Goldman banker who is now a full-time apologist for Wall Street.
