Jon Stewart Drops Cluster Of F Bombs on V.A. Clusterf**k (Video)
Jon Stewart was in full Rant Mode on Monday's The Daily Show, driven to his swear jar by the recent revelations of patient waiting lists at Veterans Administration hospitals. The problem, he says, is that we're really good at thanking veterans for their service, but not so great at actually providing them with the services we said they deserve. To make matters worse, the perverse structure of the performance incentives allowed hospitals to game the system by submitting records that made it look like they were providing care, without actually providing that care, in an effort to, as one memo put it "get off the [V.A.'s] bad boys list." Unfortunately, says Stewart, that also qualified them for another list: "The Big Book of Assholes." (Stewart does graciously apologize to the guy in the stock photo, explaining that that's just the picture that comes up when you Google "asshole.")
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
