Today on the Signorile Show

Howard Dean has continued to defend his argument that the backers of the Islamic Center near ground zero should "compromise and move the site, even as his own group seemed to rebuke him. In interviews with both Glenn Greenwald and Keith Olbermann he tried to lay out his case as both men pointed to the double standards. We'll go through it on the show and get your thoughts as the controversy over this building continues to reverberate. Dean has always been a progressive who championed the left of the Democratic Party, so his stand is disillusioning. What do you think is behind Dean's comments? Is it inevitable that it will be moved?

Sarah Palin continues to defend Laura Schlessinger, while Laura talks about her "gay and black friends" and the woman who made the call to her show has gone public. We'll get into it and take your calls.

On Wednesday I talked with the Human Rights Campaign's Fred Sainz about the group's response to Target and the boycott of the company. It became clear that HRC is still telling people to shop at Target. We'll open it up to you and ask for your thoughts in hour two. UPDATE: Early this afternoon HRC announced it would remove Target from its buying guide. Kudos to them!

Guest: At 4:30 ET I'll speak with Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.

It's Friday, find out who the "Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week" will be!
