Today on the Signorile Show

Highlights from the "don't ask, don't tell" Senate hearings: Lots of interesting exchanges with both heroes and villains of repeal squaring off. And of course, John McCain just getting really angry and frustrated a few times. We'll go through it all.

More on tax cuts and what the Democrats could have done and should do now.

A judge on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals set to hear the appeal by proponents of the overturned Prop 8 refused to disqualify himself as demanded by Prop 8 supporters.

Is this what the government really is concerned will get out because of the Wikileaks disclosures? Obama and GOPers work to protect George W.Bush from a torture probe.

Guest 3:30 ET The TSA patdowns and the specific concerns of transgender people: Mara Kiesling of National Center for Transgender Equality joins us to talk about the issues.

Guest 4:30 ET The civil unions bill that is about to become law in Illinois, making more history. We'll speak with Equality Illinois' Rick Garcia about the battle for civil rights in the Land of Lincoln.

As Southern Poverty Law Center's Mark Potok told us on the show the other day, hate group leader Tony Perkins of Family Research Council put out lies and distortions during their joint appearance on Hardball. Now Chris Matthews has corrected it with a follow up on something that never should have happened because Perkins shouldn't be on, period.

It's time for...the listener survey! We'll read some comments today and take your calls.

And day four of our Holiday Book Bonanza.
