MSNBC Report: Baucus 'Blasting Drudge, NewsBusters'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If he wasnt drunk he was having a stroke.

He should just admit he was drunk. It’s better than the only alternatives I can think of. What a loser.

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!

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!!!
