The Gabfest's August team—this week consisting of Slate editor Jacob Weisberg, foreign editor June Thomas, and "Moneybox" columnist Daniel Gross—gathered in the New York "radio room" to discuss what American politicians are saying about Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, how the presidential candidates are responding to the foreclosures that have resulted from the subprime credit crisis, and a scandal in Albany, N.Y.

The usual crew is scattered to the four winds, but we've put together an August team to keep the Gabfest going in their absence. This week's panelists are June Thomas, Jacob Weisberg, and Slate/Newsweek columnist Daniel Gross. Topics include summer catastrophes, volatile financial markets, and the Democrats' response to the war on terror.

It's August, and between vacations and the D.C. office move, we couldn't bring the usual Gabfest gang together. We have, however, assembled a fine fill-in crew, including Slate editor Jacob Weisberg and Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter. This week's topics include Rupert Murdoch's purchase of the Wall Street Journal, the latest news from Iraq, and the Republican presidential race.
