Today on the Signorile Show

We'll be going through the president's State of the Union address last night -- and oh yes, the two Republican rebuttals (crazy and crazier) from Paul "young gun" Ryan and Rep. Michele Bachmann, queen of the Tea Party.

Guest / 3:30pm EST
- Adam Schwartz, Senior Staff Counsel with the ACLU of Illinois, joins us to talk about eavesdropping laws across the country and the penalties that have been used against people who are recording their interactions with the police while detained. In Illinois several people face 15 years in prison even though the police may have been guilty of misconduct.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Jennifer Wright Knust, author of Unprotected Text: The Bible's Surprising Contradictions about Sex and Desire, joins us this afternoon to talk about the misconceptions and contradictions that many on the religious right try to exploit when using The Bible as a moral compass.
