Posted on 12/30/2009 2:37:29 PM PST by Biggirl

An update on Sen.Max Baucus,MT. OK, fine. Whatever you say. Senator Max Baucus has finally come forward with an attack on his attackers who wondered, as did I, if booze was responsible for his bizarre behavior on the Senate floor last week. Bauchus called the whole thing outrageous.

Maybe he should be called Sen. Bacchus.

If he wasn't drunk, what was his excuse?

Does Senator Bacchus offer any alternative explanation?

If I was not drunk and was on video acting like that, I would claim to have been drunk so people didn’t think I was an idiot.

After all, one can fix drunk. But one is stupid all the time.

Imagine that. He sobered up and doesn’t remember anything about it.
That stands to reason.

"I did not have sex with that woman - Mrs. Lewinski." = Bill Clinton

"I am not a crook!" = Richard M. Nixon

"I was not drunk." = Max Baucus

Well.... Can we add it to the list?

He looks really crazy, stupid and drunk. So he does have other excuses.

He has one of two cards to play.

1. Either he was drubnk as a lord on booze, drugs etc.

2. He has had a stroke.

No other choices available.

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck....No, if it walks like a drunk and slurs like a drunk, it’s a drunk—Even though Max the Pounder would have you believe it is a duck.

I think Baucus better go with the drunk story. The option is far uglier.

I call BS on this one. He was most assuredly drunk. Or, he was suffering some medical malady that would have required hospitalization. As he’s still out and about, I believe he was quite drunk...

It’s time to take back the country. Retiring elitist liars like Baucus is a good place to start.

Actually there is a third choice and it is the correct one. Max was never the sharpest knife in the drawer, and he suffered a serious head injury that required surgery about 5 years ago. I lived in Montana 5 years and heard him speak several times in person. He was about the same as in the video.

He had cottonmouth, he was slurring his words, he was stammering, repeating himself, and waving his arms about. OK. Not drunk.

Here’s a video where there is no sign of slurring. This was an early morning appearance. It is dated March 3, 2009. Other than the annoying ‘tsk’ sound he often makes.

When asked if he had anything to drink before his speech, the Senator replied, “Two beersh. Ah only had two beersh. An’ it wash my dog drivin’, osshifer! I schwear! An’ hee’sh a rotten driver an’ a naughty, naughty doggie! (hic!) Pardon me. I got the hisscups! (hic!)”

That is what I said, if it wasn’t alcohol then it had to be drugs, you do not act that confused when you are tired only when under the influence or with a prior medical condition. Since no one has ever mentioned a medical condition then he was either drunk or stoned out of his gourd!

Baucus hasnt responded; his office has. Which tells me a lot.

IMO if he had been sober, he’d explain this personally and even take questions from the press at a news conference. Like McCain did when the NY Slimes falsely accused him of the affair with a lobbyist.
