IMPEACHMENT IS IN CONGRESS AND THE MEDIA: WHERE ARE THE POLLSTERS? Your contributions have paid for polls demonstrating majority support for an investigation into impeachment. But polling companies still refuse to do their own polling on this issue. Gallup and the Washington Post have said they won't poll because impeachment is not in Congress or the media. But it is in Congress:
And it is in the media: http://impeachpac.org/impeachment-news
Demand that every polling company do its own poll on this issue:
TELL BILL O'REILLY TO DEBATE BOB FERTIK
Bill O'Reilly was forced to talk about impeachment on his radio show this week when a caller mentioned the latest poll we commissioned from Zogby. After O'Reilly denounced it as not really from Zogby, Zogby posted information about it online, which lead to some interest from more respectable media outlets than O'Reilly's.
O'Reilly has advertised that he wants someone to debate him on his show. Of course, he wants someone he can trample, and Bob Fertik, President of Democrats.com has previously trampled on O'Reilly. Nonetheless, Bob has challenged O'Reilly to a debate on impeachment. You can encourage O'Reilly to debate Bob by writing to email@example.com

Congressman Conyers has released a version of "The Constitution in Crisis" in Word without images, for easier downloading and printing. Pressed for time? Read this while Bush delivers his "State of the Union" on Jan. 31st. Unplug the television and prop your feet on it.
