Tonight on The Independents: Penn Jillette, David Boaz, and Michael Weiss; Israel Diplomacy, V.A. Reform, Immigration, Rand Paul's Minority Outreach, Belated Legalization Editorializing, and Sexy Aftershow!


Tonight's live episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) will feature a two-part interview with all-purpose entertainer, bullshit-detector, and super-libertarian Penn Jillette, who will give his reaction to The New York Times very belatedly jumping on the anti-pot-prohibition bandwagon, and also talk about his new show Penn & Teller: Fool Us!, which premiers this Wednesday on CW. And if you're really nice, he'll stay for the online-only aftershow, which you can view at foxbusiness.com/independents just after 10 p.m. ET.

Cato Executive Vice President David Boaz will be in studio to talk about the latest "Third Way" proposals from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to attract minority voters to the GOP (or at least to a certain GOP presidential candidate). Speaking of Paul, here's his recent interview with Reason TV:

Michael Weiss of The Interpreter will be back on to talk about this very rough day (week? month?) of U.S.-Israeli relations. Party Panelists Katie Pavlich (co-host, Outnumbered) and Ellis Henican (Newsday columnist) will wrassle over juvenile immigrants, the new V.A. reform compromise reached on Capitol Hill, and the horse-race prospects for the 2014 and 2016 elections. And as always, what happens in the Topical Storm, stays in the Topical Storm…at least until showtime.
