Today on the Signorile Show

What will President Obama do on "Don't Ask, don't Tell?" The New York Times weighs in, dismayed at even the thought that the president would appeal Judge Phillips ruling and injunction against further discharges. Meanwhile, he is breaking the law by not enforcing her ruling while still having not asked for a stay. And there is precedent for a president not appealing a ruling because of a belief a law is unconstitutional. We'll get into it all.

The Christine O'Donnell/Chris Coons debate was a wacky as we thought it would be -- thanks for the tea party-backed candidate -- and we'll entertain you with some clips.

The saga continues: Carl Paladino has now lost support of the Orthodox Jewish leader who he pander too with his homophobic rant.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - You've seen American Gothic, the portrait of the couple on their farm, with the husband holding the pitchfork. But are you familiar with who painted it? R. Tripp Evan's joins us this afternoon to talk about his new book, Grant Wood: A Life, which looks intothe artists closeted life and how it influenced his work.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - California is scheduled to vote on a referendum to legalize marijuana, but there is a lot of fear mongering and misinformation floating around in trying to get people to vote against the measure. Glenn Greenwald joins us this afternoon to talk about combating this misinformation and what Portugal can teach us about decriminalizing and legalizing marijuana.
