On the docket for this week's political wrap-up: the White House calling Sen. Barack Obama "intellectually lazy," fallout from Iranian President Ahmadinejad's trip to New York, and supporters of presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani throwing a Sept. 11-themed fundraiser.

Joining Farai Chideya are Melissa Harris-Lacewell — associate professor of politics and African-American studies at Princeton University — and Robert Traynham, a GOP strategist, who teaches at George Washington University.
