Today on the Signorile Show

In light of new poll that shows that almost 20% of Americans now believe President Obama is a Muslim -- a big increase from last year -- I'll ask listeners how many of them believe it too. With all the calls we've received attacking the Islamic Center two blocks from ground zero, I'm sure our audience includes some who now believe the President is a Muslim too (even though the poll was done before the controversy). Why would the number increase? We'll go through it and take your calls.

Now Sarah Palin has come out for the woman who never was a doctor, Laura Schlessinger, tweeting " b thankful 4 her voice,America!" What's even more hilarious is that she tells Laura not to quit when that's exactly what Palin did! We'll get into it.

It's now all out war between Ann Coulter and WingNutDaily's Joseph Farah, who Coulter called a "media whore" because he dumped her from his web sites convention because she is the guest of honor at a party of the gay Republican group GoProud. Pass the popcorn!

What does it mean that the last combat troops have left Iraq? Did we win the war? Is it over? We'll take your calls.

Guest: 3:30 ET I'll speak with Dr. Heidi Cullen, author of The Weather of the Future: Heat Waves, Extreme Storms, and Other Scenes from a Climate-Changed Planet

4:30 ET Americablog's John Aravosis, who started his career as a web activist with the highly effective ten years ago, joins me to talk about the campaign against the woman who never was a doctor and is now, finally, leaving radio, no doubt because she didn't want to again battle a campaign like the one Aravosis unleashed a decade ago.

Also, we'll read listener survey comments and take your calls!

And, don't forget, you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook!
