Today on the Signorile Show

We're back and Happy 2012!!!

/ 2:30pm EST - Jim Burroway, editor with Box Turtle Bulletin, returns to the show today to talk about Ron Paul's rise in Iowa and how that could be attributed to the support he's been getting from Christian Reconstructionists, who even the fringes of the Christian right believe are extreme.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Thomas Frank, author of Pity The Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and The Unlikely Comeback Of The Right, joins us this afternoon to discuss his new book which focuses on mystery of why there has been a revival of conservatism in the face of economic disaster which they created.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Tonight, ABC will air its newest sitcom, "Work It," a show about two unemployed men who dress up as women to find a job. And it airs even as there has been outrage and complaints from the transgender community that this will help to further transphobia. Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center For Trans Equality, returns to the show to discuss the problems this show will cause.
