‘Ed Show’ playbook: Thu., Mar. 22

Updated
 

The police chief at the heart of the Trayvon Martin tragedy temporarily steps aside, but George Zimmerman remains free and another rally is underway tonight.

Ed will have in-depth coverage of America’s perfect storm of injustice tonight with Turner Clayton Jr, Seminole County NAACP President, Trymaine Lee, Senior Reporter with The Huffington Post, and Dr. James Peterson, Director of Africana Studies and Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.

Opponents of Florida’s stand your ground law spoke of the dangers back in 2005. Dan Gelber, former Florida state Senator and former federal prosecutor joins Ed for that part of the story.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who signed “stand your ground” into law, has got time to endorse Mitt Romney and even suggest who he should pick for a running mate.  But he’s remaining silent about the death of Trayvon Martin.  Is that leadership?  You won’t want to miss Ed’s commentary.

The Etch A Sketch candidate is shaking up the facts (again), saying it was actually Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush, and Dubya’s Treasury secretary Hank Paulson who kept America from a second great depression, not President Obama.

E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist, refutes the latest Mitt Romney delusion.

Newt Gingrich comes down with a case of Obama derangement syndrome, claiming the president’s “policies are to apologize to Muslim extremists while they are killing Americans.”  And Karl Rove claims the killing of Osama Bin Laden was no big deal (probably because his president couldn’t find him!). 

Tonight, Ed’ll cure them both help from Karen Finney, msnbc Political Analyst and former DNC Communications Director.

And it’s the American hero versus the American zero: Iraq veteran Tammy Duckworth takes on alleged deadbeat dad Joe Walsh, a Tea Party-favorite House Republican freshmen.  Tonight, Tammy is Ed’s EXCLUSIVE guest.

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