On Wednesday night, Jon Stewart railed against America's "bureaucracy of dunces": 1 percent of the IRS owes taxes to the IRS, the Social Security Administration is attempting to collect money from people it overpaid 50 years ago, and long wait times in a Veterans Affairs hospital in Phoenix are literally killing people.

Feel free to take a second to swear into a jar. Or, as Stewart yelled, “I’m gonna need a bigger fucking jar!”
