He's Vetting Obama and Doesn't Realize It!': Limbaugh Puzzled by Obama Book Writer...and Cites The Blaze's Will Cain

"I think it raises some serious questions about what the role of a memoir is. Is it truth telling, or is it, as you said, some kind of ability to massage and make composite characters?"

Rush Limbaugh had a few choice words for historian David Maraniss -- who Limbaugh gleefully described as "vetting Obama and doesn't  realizing it" -- on his show today. Apparently, Maraniss isn't happy with the fact that his supposedly positive biographical sketch of President Obama has instead ended up being fodder for everyone who long suspected the President's two self-penned memoirs of being utter fiction. Which, it turns out, they are.

Inexplicably, Maraniss had complained about being cited for pointing this out in a segment with Soledad O'Brien on CNN, even though the role of a historian is to debunk falsehoods in the historical record. Must be something to do with political tunnel vision. Thankfully, as Limbaugh pointed out, The Blaze's Will Cain was there to raise the point on everyone's mind. Watch the segment below:

This was the question Limbaugh pounced on and hammered home, in his segment quoted below, courtesy of the Daily Rushbo:
