File under worst comebacks ever: An on-air CNBC employee told DealBreaker that the reason Rick Santelli canceled on The Daily Show the other night (prompting the show to air a massive takedown of the network that night and another one last night) is that Stewart seemed “bizarrely obsessed” with Santelli, as was “supposedly evidenced by JS calling RS ‘repeatedly’ to come on the show.” [DealBreaker]
