Today on the Signorile Show

John McCain had a tantrum again, in what looks to be the first shot fired in the Republican war on "don't ask, don't tell" repeal as the Defense Authorization Bill comes up for a vote. LGBT groups are warning people to be ready for a big fight. On the heels of the euphoria over the Prop 8 win, it's time to focus on the battle over DADT. We'll get into it today.

So much more to look at the Prop 8 ruling, including those now determined to smear Judge Walker as a biased gay judge. And why did the media so easily claim that he is gay -- without his saying it himself -- while they claim to be against outing? Lots of hypocrisy to expose here.

Ann Coulter will headline an event for the gay Republican group GoProud. Who next? Anita Bryant? Phyllis Schlafly?

Guest / 3:30pm EST - We've been talking a lot about the boycott of the chain retailer Target. Target says that while they did send out money to those campaigns, their support for the LGBT community is "unwavering." But has the company's support always been unwavering? Abe Sauer of The Awl joins me to talk about Target's past donations and how they tie into Prop 8.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Pastor Terry Jones of the Evangelical Dove World Outreach Center joins us this afternoon to talk of his plans for September 11th, by holding a "Burn The Koran Day." We'll also speak with him about his "No Homo Mayor" campaign against the openly gay mayoral candidate of Gainesville, Florida, Craig Lowe.

Did you know there's a mosque at the Pentagon --inside the building? Yes, and it was opened shortly after 9/11! Why haven't conservatives ever complained about it as they're now doing with regard to the "ground zero" mosque?

Amid reports of a deal between Google and Verizon we'll discuss the future of net neutrality, how it will affect you what will happen if the FCC doesn't step in.

Larry Kramer has unleashed on Barbra Streisand...again. What about this time? We'll talk.

We'll go through some listener surveys this afternoon!

And who will be your Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week?
