Eleven days before Election Day and Mitt Romney unleashes a perfect storm of lies trying to scare voters in battleground Ohio.

Tonight, former Governor Ted Strickland (D-OH) and Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) joins Ed to get at the truth.

Then, the Romney campaign’s resident racist goes after Colin Powell, suggesting that Powell endorsed Obama because they are both African-Americans.

John Sununu plays the race card, and claims Gen. Colin Powell’s endorsement of President Obama is based on his skin color.

Tonight, Colin Powell’s former chief of staff Col. Lawrence Wilkerson responds to John Sununu’s charge.

Then, Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown university and author (“Can You Hear Me Now?”) looks at racism as a campaign tactic in the year 2012.

Mitt Romney has no plans to cut ties with Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who opposes abortion even in the case of rape.  What kind of message does that send to American women?  Ed will ask Terry O’Neill, President of The National Organization for Women.

Righties are freaking out over a “satanic” new Obama ad featuring actress Lena Dunham. We’ll have all the details.

And in the Big Finish, lives hang in the balance if Obamacare is repealed.  Tonight, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready stands up for people with pre-existing conditions speaks out in support of the Affordable Care Act.
