The Gabfest team of Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz reunited in the D.C. conference room to discuss the week's news. On the agenda this week: the war in Iraq, the continuing fight over executive privilege, and John McCain's campaign woes. In Cocktail Chatter, David remembers his interview with McCain on the topic of … ultimate fighting; Emily is shocked by former Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona's congressional testimony; and John sees a pattern in the Bush camp's latest remarks on the Scooter Libby case.
Here are some of the stories the panelists mention in this week's Gabfest:
Thursday's Washington Post editorial about the Iraq war
Fred Kaplan's look at the White House progress report on Iraq
The video of Sen. Patrick Leahy dressing down Sara Taylor
Dahlia Lithwick on Taylor's testimony
The Talking Points Memo posting John and Emily discussed
John's piece on McCain's campaign crackup
Finally, the book David mentioned was The Myth of the Rational Voter: Why Democracies Choose Bad Policies
