In the 5th value I am entering below, I actually want to enter the comma in the middle.  I want to enter this as the 5th value '''1900-01-01''','''0001-01-01'''.  Is there some kind of escape character I can use to enter that in the manner described?

insert into CMvCM2.dbo.LA_Analysis_Var_MICLGCDt values (
'score1',
29,'-29',
536870912,
'd.MICLGCDt',
'''1900-01-01''','''0001-01-01''',
'b.MICLGDt',
'''01-01-1900''')

You do not need to escape commas.

I've removed two extraneous single quotes for you.  below is what it looks like (added spaces for clarity)
begin quote -- escaped quote --- escaped quote --- comma --- escaped quote ---- escaped quote ----- end quote
'   ''    1900-01-01''    ,     ''    0001-01-01    ''    '

Why dont you directly use the whole things inside a single quoted string
i didn get your reason for using it in this way.
'1900-01-01,0001-01-01'
