He's a former New Jersey governor, former Goldman Sachs CEO, now former MF Global head … and, as Jon Stewart labeled him on last night's "Daily Show," Jon Corzine also embodies "the corporate/industrial/government complex in all its clusterfuckitude."
Stewart detailed Corzine's history of incredibly bad financial policies, which led to his resignation last week from MF Global, the financial firm he created and then ran into bankruptcy.
"Not only will Jon Corzine no longer run the company that does not exist any longer, he also will not receive any of the money it does not have," Stewart joked in mock sympathy for Corzine.
"He's gonna have to scrape by on the $150-400 million he has already earned."
Check out the video of the segment titled "The Walking Debt," complete with a mock-up of Corzine in a Rick Grimes-ish sheriff's uniform:
