Tonight on The Independents: A Very Special Presidents' Day Episode
It's a Fox Business presidentapalooza.
It's February 14, so tonight's episode of The Independents is devoted to love and romance the presidents of the U.S.A. Starting at 9 eastern on the Fox Business Network, your hosts Kennedy, Kmele Foster, and special guest anchor Michael C. Moynihan—sitting in for Reason's Matt Welch, who's out cruising—will spend an hour discussing the nation's chief executives with an assortment of interviewees, including:
• Historian Thaddeus Russell, author of A Renegade History of the United States, who makes the case against the Founding Fathers.
• Judge Andrew Napolitano, author of too many books to list here, who makes the case against Abe Lincoln.
• Former Secret Service man Dan Bongino, author of Life Inside the Bubble, who talks about threats against the president, drunk guys writing dumb stuff on Twitter, and what Kmele Foster's Secret Service code name should be.
• Coolidge biographer Amity Shlaes, author of Coolidge, who talks about Coolidge. (And also about Hoover and FDR.)
• Reason's own Jesse Walker, author of this very blog post, who talks about paranoid presidents and fictional presidents.
• Gene Healy, author of The Cult of the Presidency, who talks about the dangers of executive reverence and executive power.
Plus presidential trivia, presidential myths, and everything else you need for an all-around presidential spectacular. That's The Independents, coming your way on the Fox Business Network at 9 o'clock tonight.
