Not a single sane person should buy a ticket with that kind of connection. Imagine that you are coming from a 7-10 hour flight from Europe or other points even further east. Then you have to pick up your luggage, spend maybe one hour in the Van Wyck "Expressway" afternoon parking lot, then re-check (long lines) at LGA, go through the security lines and then get delayed in the LGA evening zoo for another hour...

I agree: It's far better to get a flight into EWR and connect that to try connecting JFK-LGA. You either have to get a Taxi, which is expensive, or take your bags on the bus (there's no subway or any other rail to LGA yet, and even if there were, you'd have to go through Brooklyn and/or Manhattan to get there).
If you're booking a domestic-international connection through New York, go through EWR.
