‘Ed Show’ tonight: Tue., Feb. 21, 2012


The Rev. Franklin Graham, son of America’s most famous preacher, says he’s certain that Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are Christians.  But not so much President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

Tonight, Ed welcomes Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United, and E.J. Dionne, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist, for reaction and full analysis.

A week away from votes in Michigan and Arizona, the rhetoric heats up on the campaign trail.  Newt Gingrich declares Barack Obama as the most dangerous president in modern American history.  And a 2008 tape of Santorum, declaring “Satan has his sights set” on America, surfaces. 

Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist, and Richard Wolffe, msnbc Political Analyst, will break it all down.

The radical attack on women suffers a setback as the expected vote on a bill to require women in Virginia to undergo an ultrasound, including a transvaginal sonogram, prior to having an abortion, is delayed.

Is it the bill state-sponsored rape?  

Ed will talk to Delegate Charniele Herring (D-VA), Minority Whip and Chair of Virginia’s Reproductive Rights caucus, on what it means for women in the state. 

Republicans are still trying to silence Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student who appeared on The Ed Show last week.  First, they wouldn’t let her or any other woman testify at a birth control hearing.  Now Democrats are holding their own hearing with Fluke, but refuse to televise it!

Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women, Lizz Winstead, comedian and co-creator of The Daily Show and Krystal Ball, Democratic strategist and former candidate for U.S. Congress, comment on the on-going Republican war on women’s health.

And gas prices are going up at the pump and Republicans are trying to take advantage of it at the polls.  Ed has the REAL reasons for the price hikes.

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