Today on the Signorile Show

The Democrats won and the president will be signing the health care bill today. So what does this mean for the Republicans in a post 3/21 political cycle? Here they were thinking they were going to trounce the Democrats in the fall, but it may play out the other way around if they continue down this path. Are the Republicans on a suicide mission by trying to now run on repealing the health care law? Will the party of "NO" have to reconsider their strategy and become a party of "YES" if they plan on making waves in November? We'll discuss today.

Lt. Dan Choi, who was on the show yesterday, is criticizing the Human Rights Campaign and comedienne Kathy Griffin, saying they "betrayed" him when they didn't go to the White House with him where he engaged in civil disobedience. It's raised quite a debate about HRC and more so, Kathy Griffin. Is she good for the cause? Or is she working for herself, using the cause? We'll discuss it and take your calls.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - We speak a lot on the show about the Tea Party movement and the Teabaggers, but today, we'll explore a group on the left that is taking off, The Coffee Party Movement. Annabel Park, founder of the Coffee Party USA joins us this afternoon to talk about the buzz her party has given to politics.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - A lot of news happened while we were on our break. Today, we'll continue to talk about these stories, speaking today with GetEQUAL activists Kip Williams, Michelle Wright and David McElhatton about last weeks sit-ins at Speaker Pelosi's Washington and San Francisco offices "to demand that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act be brought to the House floor for a vote by the end of March."

And there has still not been a date set regarding the closing arguments in the marriage equality case in California, but that isn't stopping supporters of Prop8 from wanting to challenge this case and "calling the legitimacy of the proceedings into question."

All this and much more, today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show!
