Today on the Signorile Show

The federal appeal to Judge Walker's ruling overturning Prop 8 is underway before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. First proponents of Prop 8 must make an argument as to why they have standing to appeal since the attorney general is not appealing the case. We will cover what has transpired and will also go live to the courtroom bringing you full coverage.

There's lots of outrage among progressive (and among some Democrats on the Hill) over the White House's cave-in on Bush tax cuts -- astoundingly described as a "compromise" -- and much discussion now about what Barack Obama really stands for. The one-time attorney of friend of Martin Luther King is now calling for a Democratic primary challenge against Obama in 2012. We'll go over the details and take your calls.

Is "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" now dead in the water, and did the White House sell us out once again? That's how it looks right now.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Art censorship all over again. Last week, on World AIDS Day, an exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery and a 1987 video made by artist David Wojnarowicz, "A Fire In My Belly", were removed after antigay bigots attacked it. Does this portend the future, with Republicans raising culture wars again over art? Christopher Knight, an art critic with The LA Times, joins us this afternoon to discuss why.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Prop 8 appeal underway. Today, we will go over the highlights from the Prop 8 trail being heard today in the Ninth Circuit in front of three federal judges with Jennifer Pizer of Lambda Legal and where she thinks this case is headed next.

So much on Wikileaks over the weekend and the outrageous tactics of the U.S.government in shutting it down while mirror sites pop up and supporters fight back. We'll go through it all.

And the second week of our Holiday Book Bonanza.
