Maddow: ‘Rush Limbaugh wins’
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.
