The Secret Service’s prostitution scandal seems to be ever-widening, but what shocked Jon Stewart the most happened on U.S. soil.
Secret Service agent David Chaney, who was tasked with protecting vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, posted a picture on his Facebook page with this caption: “I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?”
“Okay, first of all, we’re not really confused about what you mean, in terms of checking her out,” Stewart said on Tuesday. “Second, how the fuck does a Secret Service guy have a Facebook page where he posts pictures of himself guarding political figures? ‘Hey, check it out, it’s me as the single trail agent on a standard v-line protection formation. The only vulnerability is on the right flank, if you know what I mean.’”
What’s next, Secret Service agents checking in on Foursquare? “Hey, just checking in at the president’s previously undisclosed location,” Stewart said. “Look at me throwing internet things out.”
