Jon Stewart on "Banks Made of Balsa Wood"

There are more than enough voices out there to willing to criticize the banks for acting in their own self interest. In fact, in the clip below, one such voice reports that Goldman Sachs’ profit of “$12 billion last year…is precisely what taxpayers gave them, to help them get bailed out from their AIG exposure, it is all tax dollars…”

Of course, for perspective, this tar-and-feather job is from none other than former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, who seems perfectly at ease casting the first stone.

See the below Daily Show video for more delight. It came to our attention via Zero Hedge in a post on who is really recovering from the financial meltdown.
