Tonight's live episode of Fox Business Network's The Independents (9 pm ET, 6 pm PT, repeats at midnight) will feature an in-studio interview with all-purpose entertainer, bullshit-detector, and super-libertarian Penn Jillette. The conversation with taller, louder half of Penn & Teller will range from his participation in the Rachael Ray Vs. Guy Fieri Celebrity Cook Off to tomorrow's State of the Union address to Afghan President Hamid Karzai's semi-ultimatum for the U.S. to negotiate with the Taliban or get the hell out of Afghanistan. Did you miss Jillette's previous appearance on The Independents? Here's a taste:
In an exchange that will likely be less friendly, Kevin Sabet of the pot-prohibitionist SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana) will be on to talk about the split over marijuana between President Barack Obama and Drug Enforcement Administration Michele Leonhart. Tonight's Party Panelists, Townhall Political Editor Guy Benson and Russell Simmons Political Director Michael Skolnik, will talk about the emergence of anti-NSA electoral politics, Hillary Clinton's (lack of) driving record, and Democrats' personal hypocrisy on minimum wage. And the Topical Storm will cover Angry Birds snooping, Sochi's gay-free population, Quentin Tarantino's copyright lawsuit, and whether Beyonce's booty is appropriate for television.
