Thomas Rips Quip at Maddow

Friday, 10 Feb 2012 11:30 AM

By Newsmax Wires

Conservative columnist and Fox News contributor Cal Thomas lambasted MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow, suggsting that the world would be a better place if she hand't been born, Politico reports.

The remarks came during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC’s) “All-Star Panel: Liberty at Stake in 2012 Election.” Moderator Genevieve Wood of The Heritage Foundation began a discussion of the Obama administration’s new contraception rule with a clip of Maddow talking about the issue.

“This is about providing health insurance, and the Republican Party is waging war on contraception at this point,” Maddow said.

“I’m really glad, Genevieve, that you played the original Maddow clip, because I think she is the best argument in favor of her parents using contraception. I would be all for that — and all the rest of the crowd at MSNBC, too, for that matter," Thomas shot back.

Maddow later used her show as a platform to respond to the quip.

“Mr. Fox News person speaking there — I’m sorry that you feel that way about me, that you wish I had never been born,” she said. Personally, I’m glad that you were born. Otherwise, how would Republicans get the special Fox News bat signal that it’s time to be outraged now about what used to be Republicans’ own policy idea?”
