Happy Presidents’ Day!

What a coincidence, we’re in the midst of picking our next president!  And the man leading the polls for the GOP nomination is riding a radical wave, comparing President Obama to Hitler.

Tonight, former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Mayor R.T. Rybak (D-Minneapolis, MN), Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, will discuss the latest remarks from Rick Santorum.

Then, radical Rick tries to explain his comments about President Obama’s religion and his call to end federal and state funding of public education.  

Ed will talk about that with Joy-Ann Reid, Managing Editor of TheGrio.com, msnbc Contributor E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist.

Protesters in Virginia come out against two new radical anti-abortion billsTerry O’Neill, President of The National Organization for Women will talk about the latest war on women’s health.

In Arizona, a sex scandal involving a Mitt Romney state co-chair could cost the candidate big time.  Howard Fineman, NBC News Political Analyst and Editorial Director of the Huffington Post Media Group, joins Ed for analysis.

Billionaire campaign donor David Koch freely admits that he’s spending “a lot” of money to help union-busting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker fight his recall election.  Ed’ll have the details.

And in the Big Finish, an ESPN anchor is suspended after his racially insensitive comments regarding basketball’s newest start Jeremy Lin.  Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown university and author (“Can You Hear Me Now?”), has reaction.

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