And a $10K Bonus If We Crack Fifty Percent 

Our distinguished colleague Lukery Land of Wot Is It Good 4 has written us with an update on his campaign to commission a Zogby poll. Some months back, as you undoubtedly recall, the Zogby organization asked a representative sample of American voters the following question: "If it is found that President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, should Congress hold him accountable through impeachment?" 42% of respondents said yes. Zogby has not asked the question since.

After an extremely frustrating exchange of e-mails, Lukery learned that Zogby might be willing to float the question again, but only for a fee. We are pleased to report that our valiant colleagues at AfterDowningStreet.org have graciously consented to assume fundraising duties on Lukery's behalf, and have raked in over $3000 today alone. If you think it might be worthwhile to ascertain how many of your fellow Americans would like to give Mr. Bush the old heave-ho, you may donate to the impeachment polling fund by clicking on the ADS link immediately above, or on the blue box in the left-hand column (which we encourage all of our blogging acquaintances to add to their sites; the relevant HTML code is here).

Lukery (who has been blogging like the Tasmanian Devil -- back in the old days, we mean, before Jack Warner checked him into that exclusive veterinary sanitarium in Beverly Hills, where they weaned him off the crank) also has an outstanding compendium of links and speculation on the latest oddities in the increasingly odd saga of Judy Miller, First Amendment Martyr (Ret.). We are especially taken with this, from Digby:

Ok kidz. Judy's lawyer Bob Bennett just told Wolf Blitzer that Judy's agreement with Fitzgerald was limited to "the Valerie Plame matter" not just Libby. Wolf pressed. Bennett reiterated that it was "the Valerie Plame matter."

Judy was worried that Fitzgerald was going to pursue her bogus WMD claims.
See also our astute colleague Jane Hamsher at Firedoglake, who has been Millerizing ever' which way but loose. Ms. Hamsher posted the picture at right to illustate an especially fascinating post on Miller's role in . . . well, we're not sure what; the opening was fascinating, but unfortunately we were unable to read the balance of the piece because it would have required us to scroll down.

Zemblan patriot J.M. informs us that the NYT has published Scooter's letter to Judy, in .PDF format, here.
