Rachel Maddow gives fake Obama oil speech, lunches with Obama
By Garance Franke-Ruta

A day after Rachel Maddow went on the air to give the speech she said President Obama should have given Tuesday about the Gulf oil spill, the MSNBC host sat down with the president for lunch at the White House along with a handful of other members of the press.

Also attending the Wednesday luncheon -- no word on whether the fish served was from the Gulf -- were columnist Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post, columnist Gail Collins of the New York Times, Gerald F. Seib of the Wall Street Journal and a handful of White House staffers.
