‘ED Show’ playbook: Mon., Aug. 6

Updated

Exactly three months before Election Day, Republicans are calling Harry Reid a “dirty liar.”  But it’s Mitt Romney who’s using America’s heroes tell a real dirty lie.

Ed is back and rarin’ to go! 

Tonight, he’ll look at Romney’s never-ending tax nightmare with Rep. John Garamendi (D- CA) and Tom Perriello, former Democratic Congressman from Virginia, currently the President and CEO of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

Then, is the media being fair to “Dirty Harry” Reid?  Ed will open up that to the Big Panel, including Ari Berman, Contributing Writer for The Nation and Rolling Stone, Lizz Winstead, comedian and co-creator of “The Daily Show,” and Susan Del Percio, Republican Strategist and msnbc Contributor.

Meantime, Romney is hiding behind the military to suppress the vote in Ohio.  Former Governor Ted Strickland (D-OH) has the latest on that.

President Obama makes news on gun control following the second mass murder in two weeks.  How far is he willing to go to stop the violence?

Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says his group has been tracking the alleged white supremacist accused in the Sikh temple massacre for 10 years and he joins Ed tonight!

And in the Big Finish, Derrick Pitts, Chief Astronomer at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, looks at one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of space exploration, paid for by the American taxpayer. 

It’s going to another packed @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
