Four days until the sequester starts killing 700,000 jobs and the speaker of the House is clueless.

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8p & 11pET on msnbc, Ed Schultz welcomes the one and only James Carville, Democratic strategist and co-founder of Democracy Corps with Stanley Greenberg, on the Republican obstruction threatening to cripple the middle class.

Plus, the BIG Congressional Panel will look at how the sequester will cost the middle class in their districts. We’ll hear from Rep. John Garamendi (D- CA), Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN).

We’ll also show you how House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is using the video game World of Warcraft to deceive the public.

Then, the president takes his case to Republican governors. Is it an effective strategy to get around DC Republicans? Ed will ask the BIG Panel of Heather McGhee, Vice President of Policy and Outreach at DEMOS, Richard Wolffe, Executive Editor, msnbc.com and a msnbc Political Analyst, and Sam Stein, Huffington Post Political Editor.

The plot to steal electoral votes moves forward in Pennsylvania.

And in the BIG Finish, the first lady makes movie history at the Academy Awards. Tonight, the story behind Michelle Obama’s Oscar surprise with David Edelstein, Chief film critic for New York magazine.

It’s going to be another essential @edshow tonight at 8p/11pET on @msnbctv.
