Tonight's episode of The Independents, which airs on Fox Business Network live at 9 pm ET and repeats at midnight, features an interview with a real life independent Senator, none other than the Vermont "democratic socialist," Bernie Sanders. Indie Bernie will talk about his inspired little stunt a few days back of asking the National Security Agency Director Keith Alexander whether the NSA is now or has ever been spying on members of Congress, and also explain how his idea of an expanded social safety net can co-exist with exploding entitlements.
Also appearing on the show: Washington Times Senior Opinion Editor Emily Miller, who drew the ire of many libertarians last week when she Tweeted that "No one gets prison for just smoking pot," and wrote a column warning that "Stoned citizens will further burden the dependency society." Panelists tonight include Democratic political strategist Basil Smikle and Lawfare Project Director Brooke Goldstein, who will chew on Hillary Clinton's reported hit list, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's promotional/acting skills, and the passing of Israel warhorse Ariel Sharon.
Other topics: Alex Rodriguez's historic steroids suspension, French President Francois Hollande's daring attempt to act as French as humanly possible…plus penis pumps, 420 signs, Times Square costume creeps, and more! Remember to heckle The Independents on Twitter at @IndependentsFBN; some of the more choice efforts will be displayed during the broadcast. Oh–and immediately after the show, there'll be 10 minutes or so of a live stream post-game Web-only thing at foxbusiness.com/on-air/the-independents.
