John Stewart: Dykstra Got the Sign to Steal

*Nov 24 - 00:05*

Lenny Dykstra, A Man of Deep Thoughts

During the past several months of the financial crisis, we have seen a ton of villains surface from Dante’s 9th Circle of Hell. I knew Lenny Dykstra’s day was coming for three (call them common sense) reasons:

  1. Several friends on Wall St. told me he has run more than one scam in which he raised capital and effectively stole the money;
  2. I have seen his options trading strategy on his website and he had been perpetually averaging down on bad picks (which is the bullet train to bankruptcy); and,
  3. I saw Lenny on Real Sports when he said he doesn’t like to read because it’s too confusing.

In the following video, John Stewart continues his Jonathan Swift style account of the absurd loss of reason during the economic bubbles of the past few years. Like Zoolander, I guess Dykstra will now have time to work on his Lenny Dykstra Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Who Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too:
