Pop Queen Has A New Cross To Bear

Okay, so I can only imagine it's bad enough being saddled with the latent guilt of playing a major part in resurrecting the mega-mulleted career of Billy Ray Cyrus--even if he is your father and the two of you are unnaturally close--but now Miley Cyrus is supposed to sit idly by while an investment analyst (ab)uses her as an analogy for our achy-breaky economy? Here's Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners on CNBC today:

“I think stocks are ahead of fundamentals. I would call the [rally] a 'Miley Cyrus' recovery. It’s very popular now, but in both cases, Miley Cyrus and the stock market may not have much talent underneath, which is reflected by prices. And perhaps, it won’t be enduring.”

You're about as talented as an economic apocalypse seems like a lot to throw at a teenage girl, even if you're not a fan!
