SEEMINGLY REASONABLE THESIS: The Democrats' financial reform bill includes provisions that will negatively affect American small businesses.
GLENN BECK-ESQUE RHETORICAL 'QUESTIONS': "Do Dems hope to kill American competitiveness or do they just have no clue?"; "Have Democrats become so misdirected, so confused, and so arrogant that they believe that they, and they alone, must dictate how other Americans should live?"
POINT AT WHICH DOAN HEADS OFF THE RAILS: "For example, just last week at a time when the nation is considering the very complicated reform of the entire financial industry, Congressman Waxman believed it more important to launch a campaign against baseball players and smokeless chewing tobacco."
HER REACTION: "My goodness!"
TOBACCO-RELATED QUERIES: "Is chewing tobacco really the most important issue of the day? And, if so, why wouldn’t Henry Waxman start closer to home—his home—in Los Angeles, where Hollywood produces more movies and TV programs in a year with smoking—of cigarettes—than is seen in a year’s worth of baseball games?"
DOAN'S LARGER CAUSE: Making sure dogs get their bones.
