‘Ed Show’ tonight: Wed., Jan. 11, 2012


The New Hampshire primary is over and The Ed Show is back tonight!

Mitt Romney’s opponents are latching on to his “vulture capitalist” past as the GOP presidential race heads to South Carolina.  As we’ve seen during the past decade the South Carolina GOP presidential primary campaign is not for the faint of heart.  

In tonight’s Playbook, Ed welcomes an all-star panel of Joy-Ann Reid, Managing Editor of TheGrio.com and msnbc Contributor, Richard Wolffe, msnbc Political Analyst, and Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist, to give us an idea of what to expect in the coming days.

That excellent trio will also talk about First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to push back on a new book that depicts her as an “angry black woman. 

Mitt Romney Came to Town, the half-hour pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC “Winning Our Future” documentary that purports to take a look at the fallout from Romney‘s time at Bain Capital, is out tonight.  Ed talks to Rick Tyler, the man behind the film and a former Gingrich campaign spokesman.

Some conservatives don’t think Romney is extreme enough for the Republican Party.  But Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Editor and Publisher of The Nation, says Mitt is just as right-wing as the rest of them.  She’ll join Ed to explain.

 On last night’s msnbc coverage of the New Hampshire primary, former Republican Gov. John Sununu answered Ed’s question about the fairness of Romney’s tax plan by calling an independent study “a crock of crap.”  Who’s right?  Ed checks in with Ezra Klein, Washington Post Columnist and msnbc Policy Analyst.

Also last night, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawalenty told Ed that The Ed Show cures his insomnia.  So tonight, in a very special edition of Psycho Talk, Ed will help him fall asleep with a bedtime story about T-Paw’s good friend Mitt Romney.  Don’t miss that!

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

And join the conversation now or during the show by commenting on Facebook and/or tweeting (with the #edshow hashtag) so we can share your thoughts on the show!
