In a rare event Friday night, Rachel Maddow conceded a point to conservative Rush Limbaugh.

“Rush Limbaugh wins!” she said.

A clarification: Maddow played a clip from Limbaugh’s radio show questioning Obama’s date of birth (Thursday was the president’s birthday.) Friday, she issued an on-air correction and said that she hadn’t realized the clip was old because birther site World Net Daily had labeled it as a new clip.

However, she said, the thesis that Limbaugh was using Obama’s race as ammunition still stands, then played a clip of him yelling “tar baby” on his radio show.

Watch the clip below, embedded via MSNBC. Originally aired August 5, 2011.
