Now, CNBC's Erin Burnett is not a certified wingnut. But her equally repulsive pronouncements qualify her for membership in this highly infamous club. Like her take on criticism of China for exporting toys with lead, and other fuckups, on Hardball with Chris Matthews in 2007:
"You know, if China were to revalue its currency or China is to start making, say, toys that don't have lead in them or food that isn't poisonous, their costs of production are going to go up, and that means prices at Wal-Mart here in the United States are going to go up, too. So I would say China is our greatest friend right now."
Not too fond of kids, or poison-free food, are we? How about dudes with a regular income? Apparently not, since she once told Men's Health that "hiring a personal chef...for the few nights a week" she is home and "round-trip business-class tickets to Australia and New Zealand" for her folks--among other expensive gifts--is the way to her heart. Aww, I'm in lust with a gold-digger.
Talk about being defined by your job.
