Bailout Comedy The Daily Show: Jon Stewart Wonders About The Goldman Sachs Connection To Washington

  • "With Goldman Sachs' surprise profits, you'd think the treasury secretary that designed the bailout used to be the CEO."

 In the latest edition of 'Clusterf**k to the Poorhouse', Jon starts to put the pieces together: Henry Paulson, Ed Liddy (CEO of AIG) and Robert Rubin (former CEO of Goldman).  The only salient rub he didn't mention was the inappropriate inclusion of Lloyd Blankfein at the Paulson meeting last Fall where AIG's fate was decided.

Also, and not coincidentally, his writers stole my puppy gag about how to make the financial crisis seem more palatable. I know people from the Daily Show read my stuff because I see their IP addresses in my logs.  Feel free to use what you want, just have me on the show, damnit.

What was Lehman doing with 450,000 lbs. of uranium yellowcake? Was this the infamous Nigerian yellowcake of the Plame Affair? Were they gearing up to be a supplier for fuel rods for Iran's nuclear reactors? And this was an investment bank? Where was this stuff stored for safekeeping? These are exactly the kinds of talented people that should be kept - they were really thinking outside the box [sarcasm].

You have to wonder what kind of other exotic controlled substances banks are "investing" in with the $3tn in borrowed tax dollars. Maybe the IAEA should be inspecting Goldman Sachs ...

This brings the whole critique of banks fomenting wars to a whole new level. This radioactive stuff better not be contaminating the family valuables in a deposit box [sarcasm].

This is apropos of nothing, but here's walstreetpro2 being interviewed on the Lazlow Show. (WARNING: If you need to pee, go NOW. This clip is certifiably PYPF.)
