Slate Hosts Live ‘Gabfest’ Tonight

Want to gab with Slate?

Tonight’s your chance. The publication is hosting a live discussion with Emily Bazelon, David Plotz and John Dickerson at the Synagogue at Sixth and I at 7 p.m.

Tonight’s topics:
– the shootings in Arizona
– Freshmen in Congress
– GOP contenders for the 2012 presidential race

Of course we wondered whether Slate‘s savvy reporter Dave Weigel will be there. “As for Weigel, the Political Gabfest features David Plotz, John Dickerson and Emily Bazelon. Weigel won’t be on stage with them, but being that it’s a Slate event there’s a good chance he’ll be in the audience,” a spokeswoman said.

Tickets are $12. Purchase them here.
