Today on the Signorile Show

President Obama told the MTV audience that "don't ask, don't tell" will end "on my watch." But the truth is, it already did: A judge issued an injunction and the discharges stopped. Now the president is actually bringing it back by appealing. We'll get into the politics around it and the refusal of this president to take any bold steps in standing up for civil rights.

Sharon Angle and Harry Reid faced off as the polls are still neck and neck. She wasn't as nutty as she often appears, and he was as droll as he often appears. That meant a win for her, or at least not anything that will change the polls for Reid. We'll go through the debate.

Fort Worth, Texas openly gay City Councilman Joel Burns gave an emotional speech to the city council on bullying of LGBT teens, telling his own personal story. We'll play the speech that is getting a lot of online and TV attention.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - We've rescheduled Will Bunch, author of The Backlash: Right-Wing Radicals, High-Def Hucksters, and Paranoid Politics In The Age Of Obama, joins us this afternoon to reveal the secrets behind these movements and paranoid politics in a new generation.

Vince Vaughn has now spoken out on gay joke in The Dilemma and he's defending it as lots of others are condemning it in this current atmosphere of hate and bullying.

And it's Friday, who will get the "Angel, Turkey, Gassie and Climax of the Week" Award!?
