The Confab -- Aug. 21, 2009

This week on The Confab: Things are getting ugly! Public option is on the chopping block and Obama's getting punked. Does the president need a neck roll and a "Negro, please!" to get it together? Plus, the "wealthy," wig-pulling women of Atlanta. Join The Root's Washington reporter Dayo Olopade as she talks with The Root's senior culture writer Teresa Wiltz and contributor to The Root Jack White.   * Podcast production by Abdullah Rufus. * Podcast theme music by Timothy Morrison.
