We're up to over 3,200 signatures on our petition calling for Fox News to replace O'Reilly with Phil Donahue. Meanwhile, as Keith Olbermann reported tonight, O'Reilly has removed the link to his list of signatures.

Sneaky.

All of our names are readily viewable by anyone. We win on that front because there's no way to independently verify the names or number of names on O'Reilly's petition.

Yet we can't assume anything about O'Reilly's petition other than to be on the safe side and assume he has more signatures. But can you sleep tonight with the thought that O'Reilly's winning? I can't.

So let's get going and hit at least 15,000 by the end of the week. Real names only so break out your e-mail address lists and e-mail like the wind.

And thanks to Keith for mentioning our petition on his show tonight. I'm humbled.
