The Twelve Days of Festivus: Nine on-air breakdowns

Glenn BeckOn the ninth day of Festivus, TV gave to me... nine on-air breakdowns.

Director Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it."

Yes, having a camera stuck in your face for an hour or more a day must take a toll on your sanity. Your privacy is virtually limited. Your every move is scrutinized and criticized by faceless meanies. Your therapist is one session away from owning his own fishing trawler.

It's only a matter of time before the grasp of sanity is clipped away like a loose thread on a homemade snowman sweater and you turn into a blubbering, snotty, incoherent mess for all the world to enjoy. These are the personalities who lost it and may or may not have gained whatever "it" is back.

Will Cramer have his revenge on Stewart?

Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart on The Daily ShowIf you thought the celebrity driven feud between The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and Mad Money host Jim Cramer was over, get ready to sigh a big breath of "Oh holy crap, here we go again."

That's if you completely believe the quote that the New York Post's Page Six gossip column picked out of an upcoming Time Magazine interview with the CNBC host without reading it in its proper context. So take it with a Lot's wife-sized grain of salt, and if you do automatically believe it, I've got an investment scheme that you might want to get in on.

The newspaper claims that Cramer is biding his time and that Stewart will "answer" for his vicious showdown on Stewart's show.

Will Stewart and Cramer get into a slap fight on Thursday? - VIDEO

Stewart and CramerAt least we know one thing about Jim Cramer: He may not have been able to predict the collapse of the Dow, but at least he has the cajones to face the comedian that's tearing him to pieces.

That's right, folks: Cramer will be appearing on The Daily Show on Thursday to defend himself in the war of funny he's gotten into with Jon Stewart and his writers. If you didn't see TDS last night, Stewart shot back at Cramer, who went on various NBC shows to defend himself against TDS' "turd mining," as Stewart called it. In this case, it was a compilation of clips that showed Cramer sticking with Bear Stearns shortly before its 2008 collapse. That, of course, was after Stewart and company ripped CNBC as a whole for missing the current crisis. Video of last night's segment, which was dubbed "Cramer vs. Not Cramer: Basic Cable Personality Clash Skirmish '09!"

Note to self: if I ever have the honor of making a guest appearance on The Daily Show, do not, repeat, DO NOT CANCEL.

I don't care if my flight to LaGuardia has a ton of water that can be dumped by pushing a button and it's flying over my mother's house, which is on fire. That would be probably waste fuel and, therefore, 12 seconds of flight time.

Sorry, mom, but if that's the case, it's either lose your home or your oldest son. And stop taking so long to make up your mind.
