Toxic Toys: Something We Can All Agree On

Reported by Marie Therese - November 8, 2007 -

This morning E. D. Hill actually engaged in a long, reasonably informative discussion with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)* on a subject close to the heart of American parents irrespective of political beliefs - the millions and millions of toxic toys flooding our stores that originate in China and have injured or killed American children. It was interesting to watch Hill, who is an aggressive supporter of Bush capitalism and a loyal FOX News foot soldier, struggling with the anger she feels as a parent of eight children trying to buy safe Christmas presents. Normally, she would dismiss anything Rep. Klobuchar had to say, because the Congresswoman is a Democrat who wants to increase the budget for government oversight of companies that import toys. However, her natural maternal instinct seemed to trump her politics as she agreed with Klobuchar that something needs to be done immediately to protect children, no matter the political affiliation of their parents.With video.

* Correction: Amy Klobuchar is the SENATOR from Minnesota, not a Congressperson. Our apologies to Senator Klobuchar for the error. - MT, 11/12/07
