Then, to Leno's cries of “Oh, c'mon!”, a delighted Limbaugh accepted the penalty against his time score and stopped, backed up and smashed into them again. Limbaugh's maneuvering ensured a lower score (greater time) than the three previous contestants since Leno's show debuted last week: Drew Barrymore, Al Michaels and Bob Costas.
But that didn't bother Limbaugh who afterward pumped his fists as he boasted: “It was worth it! It was worth it!”
[UPDATE: RushLimbaugh.com now has video of Limbaugh's entire Leno appearance.]
Inside the studio earlier, Limbaugh had earned hearty audience applause when he pushed back, against Leno's complaint there's too much political disagreement, by asking:
Why is it I have to give up everything I believe in for comity? Tell Obama, “no, we do not want you owning car companies; no, we do not want you running banks; no we don't want you taking over student loans and no we do not want nationalized health care!”
