A couple of the Gabfesters are on vacation this week, so we couldn't gather David, Emily, and John in the D.C. conference room. Instead of the usual three-way conversation, this week's mini-Gabfest features John Dickerson in conversation with Jesse Thorn. They discuss John's travels in New Hampshire with presidential candidates John Edwards, Barack Obama, and Rudy Giuliani.

First, sorry to those of you who tried to download this episode early Friday morning and found that you got last week's episode instead. Our RSS feed didn't update properly—that is to say, I messed up. It's fixed now (although if you're downloading through iTunes, you may need to unsubscribe and then resubscribe to our feed to get the updated version).

Second, sorry, but despite what John said on the program, there are no tote bags or knives on offer at this page. We will use it for updates, however, as well as cleaning up any messes we make on the show.

And now on to this week's episode. Here are our topics: a constitutional showdown over war funding; a constitutional showdown over the U.S. attorney scandal; and should a Republican actor jump into the race to head up future constitutional showdowns?

On today's (mostly) political talk show, Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz discuss these topics: The sad news about Elizabeth Edwards' health; the mashup of Apple's famous 1984 ad that has Hillary Clinton worried; the brewing constitutional showdown over whether White House aides will testify about the U.S. attorneys scandal; and why John doesn't listen to This American Life.

The Straight Talk Gabfest. On today's show, John calls in from Iowa, where he's been tromping around with John McCain. That means David pinch-hits as host. Also on the agenda: How much longer will Alberto Gonzales keep his job? And will deadlines work in Iraq? Plus, in cocktail chatter, David poses the "Kitten Challenge."
