Today on the Signorile Show

The Navy has now removed Captain Own Honors from his command after his antigay videos went viral. His defenders have said all of this was bowing to political correctness but letting him off with nothing would have made a mockery of the President's commitment to ending discrimination. We'll take your calls and get into it.

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has sent Prop 8 back to the California Supreme Court to decide if Prop 8 proponents even have standing. It will be a while longer before we know if Prop 8 is unconstitutional.

In a debate yesterday every RNC chair candidate came out for banning gays from marriage, even as we keep hearing that the Republican Party is trying to move forward on the issue. We'll listen in to their idiotic tirades and they bow to the theocrats.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Author Anand Giridharadas joins us to talk about his latest book, India Calling: An Intimate Portrait of a Nation's Remaking, in which he talks about businesses and global politics have led to a more modern India and how some are trying to weave old traditions into new ambitions.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - It's likely there will be a vote tomorrow on the first day of the 112th Congress to reform the filibuster in the Senate. Mimi Marziani, who is an author of the Brennen Center for Justice recent study, Filibuster Abuse, joins us to discuss the need for reform and what we can expect should it pass.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says that gays and women have no protections in the Constitution, seeming to rewrite the document as he goes along. How do you spell activist judge?

And the story of Princess Boy, who is speaking out. We'll take your calls about his mother, her book and what you think.

These stories and so much more, today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show!
