Was Democrat Senator Max Baucus of Montana flagrantly drunk as he gave a speech several minutes long on the Senate floor last week? You know, plastered, sloshed, wasted, or the more proverbial...drunk-as-a-skunk?! According to a now-notorious video that Was Democrat Senator Max Baucus Drunk During His Senate Floor Speech? has spread like wildfire across the internet as well as the dedicated reporting of conservative bloggers, there sure seems to be a compelling case for Baucus' insobriety, indeed.

If he was drunk it was because Bush is a recovering alcoholic.
He only had a drew finks!
I heard something about a head injury a while back.
I figure it has something to do with dyslexia of the mind.

Hey...wait a second!
Duh. Just watch it. It shouldn’t be controversial. He was slurring and mentally blurred. If he were a regular guy (not a senator), got pulled over by a cop and talked like that, he’d be walking the white line and trying to touch his nose, unsuccessfully I suspect.
If he wasn’t drunk then, he was sober. I’d be pretty embarrassed to say that is the way I comport myself when sober. Either way not good. Not good at all.
Who will you believe? the lefties or your own lyin’ eyes?
Probably no more so than usual.
On earlier threads about this, several Freepers who are familiar with him say that perhaps he’s not drunk. Slurred speech, stuttering, confusion . . . that’s just his normal pattern of behavior.
If so, then that video is even scarier!
Sen Foster Baucus is dot a nrunk.
Anyone who doesn’t think Baucus was drunk needs to watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYusPRre07k
Either Baucus was drunk, or he was doing a darn good Foster Brooks imitation.
Lacking breathalyzer or blood test results, nobody can say for certain, but he sure looked drunk to me. If he wasn’t drunk, there was something else very wrong with him.
Surely Baucus can produce other video that supports his claim that he is rambling, slurring and incoherent when he is sober.
Someone should tell Max the Pounder the first step is admitting he has a problem. Denial never works.
Baucus has been getting by for years with nothing behind the facade. The facade has been removed and he has been exposed as a gasbag, liar, unfaithful husband, and empty suit. Did I say drunk?
The party of Ted Kennedy and drunk Dodd never seems to have to answer the questions about their morals. Scumbags the lot of them.
The only reason Congress has even 21% approval is because at least 21% of those polled are at least as stupid and clueless as the politicians themselves.
“Bacchus was the God of Wine and inspired madness”.
(You can look it up.)
Was he drunk? That should not be the question. Is he drunk with power? Ding! Ding! Get the wheel barrow.
It could have been a stroke. But it wasn’t. Yup. Drunk.
Jack on the rocks times 8.
That’s the problem with all you conservatives. You have no compassion, no understanding of this man’s plight. Are you unaware this man is suffering in the thros of HCDS (Health Care Derangement Syndrome) which requires him to use medication (read Jack Black) on the hour to control his symptoms?
Don’t you know if he did not receive his meds he might actually be tempted to listen to his constituents? A Democrat listening to his countrymen? Would you want that on your conscience?
Ted Kennedy would have been proud of Max!
Do bears play in the Montana woods?
I think he was over the legal limit.
Is there any video available in which Bachus DOESN’T sound drunk that we can compare this one to?
He wasn’t drunk, he hadn’t passed out yet!
Racing through cyberspace because the MSM won’t report it nor even whisper about it unless it were a Republican.
If Bacchus ..errr Baucus was not DRUNK, he should be tested then ARRESTED.
On a related note.. I’d like to Congratulate Senator TED KENNEDY for completing 4 months of Continuous SOBRIETY.
Doesn’t matter if he was or wasn’t. The double standard means that he gets a free pass because he’s a democrat.
The Republicans (or maybe Bush) slipped him a Mickey Finn. We must investigate the Republicans over this dastardly deed. You know, Tom Colburn prayed that someone not be able to make the health care vote. That’s right, Dr. Colburn did it. He gave him a pentothal injection.
Maybe this will make one of the comedy shows!
“I think he was over the legal limit.”
Congress as a whole was. They just haven’t figured that out yet.
“On a related note.. Id like to Congratulate Senator TED KENNEDY for completing 4 months of Continuous SOBRIETY.”
Bad gwilhelm56. Bad, bad. If you don’t have something nice . . .
And very funny.
He only had one and a half beers.
C’mon, give the guy a break.
Exactly. And think Al Franken and Barbara Boxer, and tragically the set of American "adults" who voted them in.
Of course he was drunk...isn’t Baucus the Roman God of Wine?
