Idiots. Talking.

J.C. Dumbass was in the press today.

He thinks it's a good time to short sell Apple.

Go ahead. Call your broker. Go bet on Apple stock to go down four days before a Steve Jobs keynote address. Then stand out on your front porch naked and shout, "I'm an idiot" until people come to take you away.

The entire freaking market was down today. AAPL was written in green letters at the end of the day. The only people selling Apple stock today were taking the capital gains to buy a new Mac and a box of hand-rolled Nicaraguan Churchills.

Dumbass also thinks it won't be long before everybody jumps on and copies Apple. Just like they've done with the iPod. Everybody has done an iTunes Store now. Apple's stock really suffered from that.

J.C. Dumbass's columns remind me of a Truman Capote quote about On the Road by Jack Kerouac. He said, "That isn't writing. It's typing." Give him credit, though. Once upon a time it would have been a salable talent to operate a QWERTY keyboard with your head up your ass all the way to the shoulders.

Did I mention Vista sucks?
