Bizarre Baucus Behavior on Senate Floor Ignored by MSM
NewsBusters ^ | December 27, 2009 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 12/27/2009 10:55:10 AM PST by PJ-Comix

How can one explain this incredibly bizarre performance by Max Baucus on the Senate floor? Was Baucus so intoxicated by the sound of his own voice that he went off the deep end? Or perhaps he was so drunk with power over shaping the Senate health care bill that it explains his strange rant. In any event, if a conservative such as Jim DeMint or Jeff Sessions had acted this way in the Senate, the mainstream media would have featured the video over and over and over again. Instead, since this was Democrat Max Baucus, this video was almost completely ignored by the MSM.

Since the MSM has provided no information on the Baucus performance, your humble correspondent has searched the blogosphere for answers. Here is an observation from Susan Flowers at Examiner.Com:

Is this acceptable, NO. Is this behavior and lack of leadership acceptable to U.S. Citizens who are paying his salary?

Have all rules established over hundreds of years being thrown out and disregarded by the Democrat party? He should be brought before his peers and punished, if they don't, should Voters, as employers, write him up for inappropriate behavior and disorderly conduct?

Americans are paying taxes to support his career. If you disapprove, call and write the other Senators and request he be charged with disorderly conduct. No one in the Congress or Senate should be allowed to be intoxicated when officially representing the Citizens of the USA.

Hopefully the overlord Baucus will be easy on us serf's and our freedoms while he is in such a state.

If he wasn’t drunk, then I couldn’t guess what was wrong with him. But I’m sure he was drunk.

He’s plowed, three sheets to the wind stewed drunk alright. Why was he even allowed in the chambers? He could be arrested for public intoxication.

Clearly demonstrates the respect he has for the office, the people, and the nation.

Baucus is a putz, and needs to be retired.

Baucus either has dyslexia of the mind or cancer of the mind.

He is incapable of being coherent.

As a concerned Montanan, I have noticed this.

Has he been known to slur his speech like this — like even when he’s not drunk?

“...channels Ted Kennedy”

My thoughts exactly. Not only did T.Kennedy set precedence screwing up our Constitution, our educational system, our medical system, etc., etc., etc., but he led the pack when it came to screwing up the morality of our leadership.

I’d bet Clinton would never have gotten away with what he did had precedent not been set by T. Kennedy. He wasn’t alone, but he was foremost.

Just think about what would happen to you if you showed up at work drunk as a skunk like this ?

Would you be given a pass; or fired ?

Once again, Congresscritters show they ARE above the petty rules the rest of us must live under.

Montana is already circulating petitions to get him out of his job. They are also pissed at their other Senator.

Random drug and alcohol testing for all politicians, if found to be under the influence, immediate termination and loss of all benefits.
THAT SHOULD BE THE LAW!
That's how I worked for 30 years and I'm sure that many here worked under those rules also.
