David is traveling this week, but the Washington Post's "Washington Sketch" writer, Dana Milbank, joined John and Emily to chew over debating Democrats, the Republican doing Meet the Press on Sunday, and the flap over waterboarding. And in a shocking development, John offers a "Cocktail Chatter" nugget that doesn't involve polling!

Some of the articles mentioned in the discussion:

The waterboarding video Emily mentioned
Dana Milbank's Washington Post piece about the waterboarding breakfast
William Saletan's piece on the AEI's forum on smart Jews
Slate V
's take on the Ron Paul ad, along with his supporters' negative reactions

The soundproofing is still a work in progress
The soundproofing is still a work in progress

Since the D.C. Slate sters moved into their swank new digs, the dimensions and acoustics of the new "studio" have been topics of some fascination for gabbers and listeners alike. By popular demand, we present a photographic explanation for why it sometimes sounds as though the Gabfest is recorded in a wind tunnel—the soundproofing is still a work in progress. (That's the carpet that Emily was responsible for selecting, BTW. I'm told it was reattached to the wall before the Oct. 26 show was recorded.)
