Washington drops the ball on protecting our children, as the U.S. Senate finds itself out of touch with most Americans on the assault weapons ban.

Tonight on The Ed Show at 8pET on msnbc, guest host Michael Eric Dyson welcomes Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA).

Then, President Obama faces the media in Israel as the drum beat for war in Syria gets louder. Michael will have analysis with Matt Duss, Political Analyst for Center for American Progress, and Robin Wright, Senior Fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace.

The former head of the RNC slams the GOP’s attempt at minority outreach. Can the Republican Party re-connect with minority voters? Michael will ask the BIG Panel of Tara Dowdell, a political strategist and founder of the Tara Dowdell Group, state Sen. Nina Turner (D-OH) and Janaye Ingram, DC Bureau Chief of the National Action Network.

The love gov advances in South Carolina’s congressional primary. But he may have met his match in the Colbert-Busch Report!

And in the BIG Finish, March Madness hits Washington. Guess who’s angry about President Obama’s bracket picks? Mike Wise, Sports Columnist for the Washington Post, will respond.

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