Tonight on The Independents: Anthony Weiner, the Federal Reserve, Super Bowl Commercials, the Debt Ceiling, Joe Namath’s Fur, TSA Confessionals, Heroin Overdoses, North Korea Sneak-Peak, Plus Aftershow!

Weiner! I barely even know her! ||| New York Daily NewsIt’s Monday night, which means
is backatcha live at 9 pm ET, 6 pm PT on Fox
Business Network (with a midnight-hour repeat), injecting some hot
buttered libertarian weirdness into the cable-news slipstream.

Tonight’s show begins where
Super Bowl
—with Super Bowl commercials, particularly the two that have
generated the most (and most pointless) political controversy:

Bob Dylan’s Chrysler stunt
, and Coca-Cola’s
multilingual rendition
of “America the
.” Commenting on these, as well as on
Philip Seymour Hoffman’s heroin overdose
and the recent

essay in Politico, will
be Wall Street lawyer-turned comedian Paul Mecurio, and criminal
defense attorney-slash-TV commentator Remi Spencer.

Then joining the show for a couple of segments will be former
congressman, recent New York mayoral loser and two-time sexting
scandal protagonist
Anthony Weiner
, who is slated to discuss (among other things)
Washington’s latest
debt ceiling fight
, President Barack Obama’s
combative interview
with Fox host Bill O’Reilly, and the

rather remarkable confession
that Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.)
made last week during his confirmation hearing to be America’s next
ambassador to China.

Malice! I barely even know her! |||Michael Malice, author of a
new unauthorized biography
of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il
Dear Reader
(as well as of a great 2013 Reason
feature “My
Week in North Korea
“), will be on to talk about the horrors of
the Hermit Kingdom. And the “Keeping it Kmele” segment tonight will
use Janet Yellen’s
first day on the job
as Fed chief to take a closer look at the
Federal Reserve. Other topics that may come up on the show include
sartorial awesomeness
, the post-game show’s
9/11 truther
Bill de Blasio’s groundhog
(not a euphemism), and
beer drones

There will be a live-stream after-show available on the website,
and as always, send your tweets out to @IndependentsFBN; some
may be used on air.
