–Bill Scher from Campaign for America’s Future and LiberalOasis.com and Kristen Soltis from The Winston Group join us live to discuss the 2010 election and everyone makes their predictions for the House and Senate.

–Juan Williams gets fired from NPR and signed to a bigger contract with Fox News, and David Pakman says he should not have been fired and that NPR bungled the entire situation.

–We look at whether or not it is possible to have an adult discussion about media coverage since 9/11 and the effect on Muslim stereotypes without drawing criticism from political extremes on both sides.

–MoveOn member Lauren Valle is stomped on by a Rand Paul supporter Tim Profitt at a recent campaign event, and conservatives claim the entire story is being distorted because liberals say the stomping was on Lauren’s back, not her head.

–Sharron Angle’s bizarre campaign at with stock Getty images of Hispanics, and her further claims that some Hispanics look Asian.

–Amendment 62 in Colorado, supported by Senate candidate Ken Buck, would lay the groundwork to ban all abortions, including those where the life of the mother is in danger, since being against abortion is being pro-life.

–We look at what Democrats should do in the last few days before the election.

–Wayne Besen from Truth Wins Out calls in to discuss the myth about gays and lesbians trying to convert heterosexuals, but a bad cell phone signal cuts the interview short.

–We discuss whether  race will ever disappear as a basis for prejudice and discrimination.

–Islamic Law dictates a recent ruling in the United Arab Emirates that confirms men can beat their wives and kids as long as it does not leave a mark.

–Last week’s poll about Bill O’Reilly on the view and a new poll about Juan Williams’ firing

–Emails calling David Pakman a bitch, about Richard Iott, and Carl Paladino.
