Get a MoveOn on impeachment

Deep in the impenetrable innards of the MoveOn website is a survey question waiting for your answer:
Do you think Congress should impeach President Bush?

The lever-pullers over there at 'Democracy in Action' apparently don't want to know what MoveOn's three million members think about impeachment badly enough to ask them by email, or to pose the question on the front page of the website. You've got to be tipped to its existence and location by word of mouth or word of blog (thanks in this case to Jonathan Schwarz of A Tiny Revolution). As with so much else at the site, there's no indication when the survey page was created, or what it's connected with. Still, the impeachment question is being asked, and you get a chance to expand on your answer in an accompanying comment box. Maybe it'll become a movement...

And when pigs fly, maybe MoveOn itself will become an organization transparent enough to make it possible for 'members' to see how many people responded and to read their own and others' comments.
