As NewsBusters reported Thursday, Rachel Maddow visited our booth at the Conservative Political Action Conference taking place in Washington, D.C.
Showing herself to be a really good sport, Maddow discussed her CPAC visit on the MSNBC program bearing her name.
In particular, she was very pleased with our Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann doormats, although she was offended we didn't have one for her.
"Nobody wants to stomp me out?" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript):
RACHEL MADDOW, HOST: I'm offended. Nobody wants to stomp me out? Chris and Keith, I want to say one thing about this: they picked very handsome pictures of you guys. I mean, really. You have to admit. Keith doesn't look puzzled, he looks fierce. Chris looks delighted to be here. And Keith looks like, "Don't mess with me." I think, I think there is a secret undercurrent of flattery. [...]
There were those wipe your feet on Keith Olbermann or Chris Matthews doormats. Stomp out the liberal media. They did not have one for me, which I am trying to not take too personally.
Hey Rach - maybe we'll give you your own doormat if the next time you tell your viewers what booth you were attending.
Regardless, nice display of sportsmanship, Ms. Maddow. Brava.
You can find the Matthews and Olbermann mats at the MRC Store.
