‘ED Show’ playbook: Mon., June 18


Ed is back tonight (reporting from Los Angeles) and he’s fired up about immigration!

Four days after President Obama’s dramatic shift in immigration policy, Mitt Romney is still tongue-tied.  And Democrats hammering him for it.

Tonight, Ed welcomes Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Joan Walsh, Salon’s Editor at Large, to talk about the Republican nightmare over the Dream Act.

Protesters stage a silent march against New York’s divisive “stop and frisk” policy on the same day Rodney King died.  Is New York’s policy racial profiling?  Ed will ask  Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the U.S. Senate, defends the Koch brothers before their anti-Obama retreat.  Howard Dean, former Democratic National Committee Chairman, former presidential candidate and the founder of Democracy for America, explains what the corporate takeover of America is all about.

A conservative activist shouts down the president and now one veteran journalist admits some righties just can’t stand having a black president. The Big Panel (Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk show host, Trymaine Lee, Senior Reporter with The Huffington Post, and Keli Goff, author of “The GQ Candidate”) weighs in on that and more.

Mitt Romney isn’t winning over hoagie lovers in Pennsylvania. Ed will comment on Romney’s latest “out of touch” moment.

And in Michigan, Democrats fight back after being silenced for saying the word “vagina” on the state House floor.  Ed will go live to Lansing for a special edition of The Vagina Monologues and talk with state Rep. Barb Byrum (D-MI). 

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