‘ED Show’ playbook: Wed., Oct. 24

Updated

Mitt Romney’s dealing with a bombshell tonight. Richard Mourdock, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Indiana, says women should be forced to carry pregnancies resulting from rape to term because “God intended to happen.”

Tonight, Ed welcomes Terry O’Neill, President of The National Organization for Women, to discuss Romney’s endorsement of Mourdock

Will Murdock’s comments be a real wake-up call to Republican moderates?  Susan Del Percio, Republican Strategist and msnbc Contributor, and Krystal Ball, Democratic Strategist and former candidate for U.S. Congress, will weigh in on that.

Then, with less than two weeks before the election, the crazies are coming out of the woodwork with Trump, Coulter and Palin all diving off the deep end. Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University,  joins Ed for that.

This election may all come down to the ground game in Ohio.  Larry Cohen, President of the Communications Workers of America, and James Hoffa, President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, lay out the game plan to deliver the Buckeye State for President Obama.

Wisconsin congresswoman Tammy Baldwin responds to Tommy Thompson’s attack on her record, and has a new ad on how he profited off the 9-11 tragedy. We’ll have the details.

And in the Big Finish, Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital threatens to close the Sensata plant ahead of schedule if workers continue protesting the company’s outsourcing plans.  we’ll get the latest from Freeport, Illinois, from Leo Gerard, president of United Steel Workers International.

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