Today on the Signorile Show

Yet another tea party candidate has gone on an antigay tirade, defining what the tea party really is, and how the religious zealots are very much a part of it. We'll go through the latest comments from Republican Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck.

Meanwhile, the gay-bashing doesn't seem to be working for another tea-party-backed candidate, GOPer Carl Paladino running for governor in New York, who now has an 11% approval rating.

And, the tea party madness continues with Alaska's Joe Miller now accused of having his henchmen handcuff a reporter because he was asking questions Miller didn't like.

An article on Politico backs up what many of us have been saying for a while: Obama's plan on "don't ask, don't tell" has pretty much backfired because they went too slow.

Guest/2:30 EST Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, joins us to talk about President Obama's decision to appeal the injunction on "don't ask, don't tell" as a federal judge decides on the administration stay request, and how likely a vote on repeal in the Senate after the elections reall is.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Did you know that the average American throws away roughly 200 pounds of food a year? That means that collectively, we throw away enough food each year to feed 1.7 billion starving people. Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half Of Its Food (And What We Can Do About It) joins us this afternoon to talk about the relationship American's have with food from the grocery store to garbage.
