Maddow's fake oval office address

Rachel makes the most of her medium with such creative segments. This was her fake oval office address from last night. And yes, while it's total fakery and the kind of thing we all run through in our minds some times (well, some of us do, when we see a speech like Obama's), there's something in the very direct manner here, the urgency of the message and the emotion that comes with it that stands out. She spent a week in the Gulf recently, doing her shows from Louisiana, and it seems to be driving the tenor of her coverage since then. It certainly comes through here.

Fun and brilliant, as always.
