Today on the Signorile Show

Florida Governor Charlie Crist, the Ken Mehlman of Sunshine State, has come out for a federal marriage amendment, banning gays from marrying, only to "clarify" by saying he meant only a amendment and he supports civil unions. How long will the media allow this charade to go on?

So much talk about Glenn Beck's rally in Washington and what looked more like the same old religious revival crowd then any newly configured conservative movement. We were told the Tea Party wasn't so into the old time religion, but all the God-talk was evident. And what is clearly a lot of white anxiety about black people was on display, as has been the case for a while now. We'll go through the speeches and take your call.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Last week, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum lost the GOP primary nomination to Rick Scott. Who is Rick Scott? Igor Volsky, health care researcher with the Center for American Progress joins us to talk about exactly who Rick Scott is.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Robin McGehee, co-founder of GetEQUAL, joins me this afternoon to talk about the direct actions group to push harder for ENDA with their "ENDA Summer" Campaign. She'll talk about what you can do to get involved.

Marking the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we'll go back and listen to some clips from listeners on the Gulf Coast who called in with their stories, before, during and just after the tragedy struck.

What is President Obama and the Democrats running on this fall? As Americablog points out, young people aren't turning out it seems. And everyone else isn't getting a plan from the president on the economy, which is the issue everything will turn on. Are the Democrats in for a slaughter at the polls? We'll discuss.

And, don't forget, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook!
