Jon Stewart took on the dramatic dropping of the Dow last night, mocking Wall Street for not only letting this happen, but skirting responsibility, blaming the plunge on a "perfect storm" of circumstances.
And as Stewart found, this is not the first time the "perfect storm" excuse has been used over the years, prompting him to lay into Wall Street for the ineptitude:
"Why is it that whenever something happens to the people that should've seen it coming didn't see coming, it's blamed on one of these rare, once in a century, perfect storms that for some reason take place every f--king two weeks. I'm beginning to think these are not perfect storms. I'm beginning to think these are regular storms and we have a sh--ty boat."
