(Newser) The Daily Show's Jon Stewart had one question for longtime White House reporter Helen Thomas last night: "Helen, what the fuck?" Thomas, 89, resigned yesterday after saying Israeli Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Poland, Germany, or wherever they came from. Also on Stewart's dartboard: Rush Limbaugh, who got married for the fourth time on Saturday, Gawker reports. "This blew one and three out of the water," Stewart said.

Check this out people, the reason people are so freaked out by what this woman said is because if ANYONE is qualified to say what she did, it's her. She has been FRONT AND CENTER to the every day workings of the leaders of this country longer than anyone. She's heard, felt, smelled, tasted, witnessed, and sensed the pulse of this country AT ITS SOURCE, and if SHE says ISRAEL IS FUCKED UP, then ISRAEL IS FUCKED UP. For how many years have we trusted her, awarded and admired her? For how many years have we relied on her to tell us like it is? But now that she hits a nerve, she’s vilified. Had she said India should get out of Kashmir, we’d nod our heads. Had she said the United States should get out of Iraq, we’d cheer. Had she said the US owed the American Indians something, we’d rally behind her. But she mentions Israel, and suddenly she’s the devil. Are you kidding me?
