Maddow & Stewart Have Plenty to Say about "The Real Housewives of Homeland"

You know that Jon Stewart was going to go "all in"...to The Real Housewives of Homeland last night on The Daily Show, since he interviewed Paula Broadwell at the beginning of the year about her biography of General Patraeus. "The whole thing," he says in retrospect, "was innuendo after innuendo":

And, of course, he mentioned Fox News' take on le affair homeland:

Rachel Maddow, on the other hand, was a bit more concerned about the fact that the FBI (always a shady cast of characters) has not shared their classified information with the necessary political figures, including Senator Dianne Fienstein, head of the Senate Intelligence Committee...perhaps they have an agenda of their own?

If the highest echelon of our government's military and security apparatus is compromised (cough cough) then doesn't this seem to put us in a vulnerable position in the world?

this is precisely why the Patraeus affair 'matters' -- it's only the tipping point, in my estimation...I bet you it's not even going to be the biggest part of this scandal....

holy snap! it seems the FBI agent who started the investigation sent shirtless photos of himself to the "thrid" woman,  and was so obsessed with the case he had to be removed.
