Whoops! Former former governor of New Mexico and trying-to-get-himself-taken-seriously-as-a-presidential-contender Gary Johnson — who is not participating in tonight's debate because he's not invited — accidentally agreed to "debate" and Barack Obama impersonator* on John Stossel's Fox Business show.** Yikes!
Ugh! This is almost too painful to watch. This is almost as cringe-worthy as that time Tim Pawlenty accidentally announced he was running for president without any of his handlers telling him that he was Tim Pawlenty.

** Majorly embarrassing!

TV Newser has some interesting TV newsiness about everybody's second favorite mustachioed TV news guy: John "The Stash" Stossel is leaving ABC for Fox!
John Stossel, the longtime ABC News correspondent and co-anchor of "20/20," is leaving ABC to join Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. TVNewser has learned Stossel will host a weekly, one-hour program for the 2-year-old business channel.
He's expected to signed a multi-year deal with Fox which will include regular appearances on Fox News Channel during daytime and primetime. He'll also host four, hour-long specials on Fox News, much like the business/consumer specials he'd hosted for years on ABC.
Stossel's been a guest on The Daily Show twice to date, so, what the hell, let's take a trip down memory lane…

What are libertarians? What values do they hold dear? What do they want out of life? What do they like to eat? Why is it that they can see a pentangle on the palm of their next victim when the full moon shines? Am I maybe confusing libertarians with werewolves?

<sup>* Okay, so they don't really talk about libertarianism in this clip, but they're pretty much the most vocal libertarians in entertainment, so it seemed wrong to leave them off the list.</sup>
