If you have ever traveled around this great country of ours, you have almost certainly learned one undeniable truth about the good ol' U.S. of A. -- we're weird. From those who want to build a massive fence to keep out illegal aliens to those who believe in the existence of a different kind of alien, Americans are a varied and kooky bunch. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black took a cross-country road trip to talk to Americans of all stars and stripes, the results of which gave rise to the book America, You Sexy Bitch. Black, a liberal comedian, and McCain, daughter of Republican maverick and presidential runner-up John McCain, may seem like an odd couple at first. But tonight, as they share the tales of their coast-to-coast trip with Salon.com editor-at-large Joan Walsh, they show that despite their differences, they are just Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black: Two Slices of American Pie. Drive your Chevy to the levy, and don't forget the whiskey and rye.
