Moral outrage is reserved for the weak

Well, we always suspected that Wall Street was populated by selfish douchebags, but you can leave it to The Daily Show to chronicle the sheer depths of their douchebaggery. Case in point: business writer Joe Nocera's journalist Rick Santelli's enraged Wall Street outburst in response to the idea that President Obama might give some of the $2,000,000,000,000 of bailout money to private citizens:

"This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage [who] has an extra bathroom and can't pay their bills? Raise your hand!"

Wall Street Pitsters: "Boo!"

I guess bureaucratic failure trumps individual shattered lives. What follows is an aggravating rundown of the helpless posturing of a group of people with the self-righteous belief that they and only they really deserve that two tril.
