Today on the Signorile Show

We'll take more of your calls and discuss the continued reaction and fallout of former RNC chairman Ken Mehlman's coming out as gay.

Guests / 3:30pm EST - After Judge Vaughn Walker made his decision that Prop8 was unconstitutional, the Right attacked Walker, saying he was bias because he's an openly gay man. The press went along with this claim, whenever they discussed Judge Walker and his historic ruling. But Judge Walker never has said publicly that he is openly gay. These claims of the judges sexuality have been said to have originated from a San Francisco Chronicle article, which said that it was an "open secret." We'll speak with Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross, who had written that article in February and their thoughts on the misrepresentation.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Stephanie Miller, daughter of William Miller, Barry Goldwater's running mate in the 1964 run of the Republicans and progressive radio show host, recently came out publicly as a lesbian. We'll speak with her about her coming out and why she decided to do it now.

Glenn Beck is planning a rally on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luthur King's historic civil rights march, and claims he's going to "relaim civil rights." It has many civil rights leaders outraged. We'll get into it.

We didn't get to do them yesterday, but we'll read Listener Survey's today. Have you taken it yet?

And it's Friday, so we'll be giving away out "Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week!"
