Skip to comments.MSNBC Report: Baucus 'Blasting Drudge, NewsBusters'
Posted on 12/29/2009 2:40:35 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
MSNBC reported this afternoon that Max Baucus is "blasting right-wing websites like Drudge and NewsBusters" for suggesting he was drunk on the Senate floor during the health care debate. See P.J. Gladnick's Bizarre Baucus Behavior on Senate Floor Ignored by MSM.
But MSNBC did the Montana senator no favors:
1. it used his name in the same sentence with a variation on the word "blasted," and 2. what's worse, it played a clip from the Baucus', um, tired and emotional floor speech.
View the video and judge for yourself.

Well, if he wasn’t drunk, perhaps overmedicated, like half of Congress. Hallucinogenics, I think.
I LOVE Newsbusters!
Oh come on, Maxine, admit it.
You’re a drunken whore bought and sold
A drunken tirade from Max I betcha.
Baucus “blasting” NewsBusters, Drudge ping to Today show list.
Come on, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal, we don’t care if you were drunk. Just one of the guys. You’re okay. Confession’s good for the soul. Signed, you ol’ buds at FR. PS: Saul Alinsky says to say hi. He can’t quit laughing long enough to write.
Ok, not drunk you say then you are incompetent and a whining girly-man! Would you like some cheese and crackers to you with that Eruo-trash wine.
Max could use another tax payer funded vacation off with his trollop.
Let’s see him sue Drudge and get all his cards and drinks on the table.
And you wonder why we are having problems in this country?
Time for a royal flush and get rid of them all.
Time for a congressional revamp of ‘politics as usual’
ie: term limits, public benefits like the rest of us and NO MORE LAWYERS!!
“We the People” need to run this country as it was established long ago.
Drunk or not, do you want this man and his buddies making your health care decisions?
I watched the video, and it was very painful to watch. From experience, I know drunk, and Sen. Baucus was on a good drunk.
2 Weeks from now he will be visiting Betty Ford.
Weeessszze sheerrrrh kourageeeee? Wheeeszzzzzeeeeizzzzit?
I cannot even believe this guy is denying he was drunk. You have to be kidding me.
Are you hurling invective at me or the inebriated Mr. Baucus? If me, read my screed again, you’re aim is off, sir. Perhaps you’ve had too much Jack Daniels during this Christmas holiday? If so, a toast to you, regardless and may the new year be one that conservatives can truly relish.
Baucus is the prince of wimps...Barry being the king.
The speech was an unforgiveable rambling unprofessional bit of vomit.
He sounded drunk and I don’t care how much he denies it, the man was sloshed.
There ya go, Max, brazen it out in true “Democratic” moral standard bearer fashion.
I love how the Senator waits until he sobers up before he complains. What a prick!
And Baucus is really grateful to MSNBC/Shuster for keeping the story going.
WC Fields is the only other guy that could pull off the drunk look better than Baucus... buuut that was because he was mostly always drunk.
LMAO!! He was plastered.
MAX the Pounder.
Be careful of any drivers on New Year’s Eve who are ....er... “tired and emotional”, willya?
Being three sheets to the wind is the only plausible excuse for his bizarre behavior on the Senate Floor. If he was sober, as he claims, then he is truly a complete nincombpoop.
Now this is really beginning to become more fun than I could have hoped for.
A video is worth a thousand words.
These guys forget that Utube and other internet video’s cannot be hidden.
If he wasnt drunk he was having a stroke.
...asshooly, iiii think th’t ‘eee shouuul b’ shhinshurred, in th sineh...
He's like the Forrest Gump of the Web. Everywhere yet still just under the radar.
He slurred Republicans and said, “Ted Kennedy would be plowed.... I mean PROUD...”
This clown was S**TFACED.
Max “Foster Brooks” Baucus.
He should just admit he was drunk. It’s better than the only alternatives I can think of. What a loser.
I say eight shots of Jack. What say you?
To borrow a southern phrase..he was drunk as “cooter brown” but not nearly as much fun!
So if it wasn’t alcohol it had to be drugs? Does Max Baucus do drugs? He wasn’t just tired,tired does not make you act like that!
If Mr. Bacchanalia thinks he’s just going to plaster-over this situation, then he’s wasted his time...
Way to go PJ - Somehow fitting ;o)
The Surfaris ~ Wipeout!
well I have to be drunk to vote for deathcare!
This clown was S**TFACED.let me add and more, Im surprise he didn’t pass out...lolololl
I always slur my speech when I am overly tired from drinking lunch. I am shocked that the people in Montana have been fooled by this drunken bum. PLEASE Max???????
One video is worth a thousand words.
Baucus, of course, after analyzing both posts, I can see the context issue; cheers and agree on the choice of maxim; best wishes for the New Year.
If you think Max Baucus was drunk or high on the Senate floor, you would be 100% correct. But, fear not folks, when the American people see how they are screwed by Obamacare in both increased taxes and reduced medical care, every Democrat will be either drunk, high or hiding. The liberal, left-wing idiots along with the chief empty suit POTUS Obama are destroying their political party by their own hand, just as American voters did by electing Barack Hussein Obama as the USA POTUS!!!
he was “drunk as a skunk” as my beloved granddaddy used to say.
“I admitted I’m a philandererer but I’m not a drunkerer.”
