Is the Obama Campaign smearing Rush Limbaugh?

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

News item: Barack Obama campaign starts new Web site ["Fight the Smears"] to fight smears from political opponents...

The first smear mentioned:

"LIE: Rush Limbaugh says a tape exists of Michelle Obama using the word 'whitey' from the pulpit of Trinity United."

Well. No. This is what Limbaugh said:

"The rumor is -- and we don't like dealing with rumors here -- but the rumor is that Michelle Obama from the pulpit of this church used the term 'whitey.' Some are saying be very careful with this because she might have said 'why'd he,' why did he, the contraction 'why'd he' instead of 'whitey.' "

He added: "I can't find anybody who's seen it."

Limbaugh... was careful not to claim the tape exists.

More on this when someone gets around to creating

Anyone interested?
