Adam Carolla on Obama's taxes, obese-shaming and Celebrity Rehab death Mindy McCready

Adam Carolla has not had a predictable career arc. After playing the role of the cynical sidekick in both The Man Show and Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinsky, he developed his own ready-made cocktail, Mangria, as well as one of the most popular podcasts on the internet, eventually landing a regular spot on The O'Reilly Factor, replacing Dennis Miller as America's premier conservative comedian. Recently teaming up with his old Loveline buddy for their Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Reunion Tour -- which visits Denver this Saturday -- Carolla took time away from his numerous projects to catch up with us, discussing smoking vs. obesity, atheism and whether or not Dr. Drew is responsible for Mindy McCready's death.
