“May I remind you Wall Street has not cratered our economy in like two years? That’s ancient history! At this point who can even remember who took worthless subprime mortgages and knowingly bundled them as mortgage derivatives so they could be sold, re-bundled and re-sold to pension funds and banks around the world until — because this entire scheme is a castle of sand and shit — it inevitably collapsed, annihilating $17 trillion, (the) national economy, centuries-old financial institutions, and the life savings of untold millions of Americans? I can’t remember — and neither can Herman Cain!”
STEPHEN COLBERT, on Herman Cain telling Occupy Wall Street that they should stop “directing their anger at the wrong place” — Wall Street — and focus it on the White House instead, on The Colbert Report.
How soon they intentionally forget.
