    Montana Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who marshaled health care reform through the Senate, has been accused in an anonymous Web posting of being drunk during a floor speech last week. Baucus denies the claim, and his spokesman says the story is a "smear" and a "slander" that never should have been picked up by other media. Idaho GOP Sens. Mike Crapo, a leading critic of the Baucus bill, and Jim Risch declined to comment on whether their colleague might have been drunk on Dec. 22, when he blasted GOP senators for not bargaining in good faith on a possible bipartisan...

    It is no secret that Senator Max Baucus, the primary architect of the Senate’s health care reform bill , was as drunk as a skunk while drafting the bill, as hopefully were his Democrat counterparts, as it would be a sad state of affairs if the Democrats were really that stupid. Being lethally intoxicated is a much more acceptable excuse for their antics. For an unparalleled auditory taste of incoherency, please watch one of this country’s more esteemed Democrats at work:

    A speech by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) on health care has been generating buzz on the Internet, as the Drudge Report and others are suggesting that Baucus was slurring his speech and possibly "intoxicated" during his remarks. "DRUNK WITH POWER? TOP DEM SLURS ON SENATE FLOOR..." reads the Drudge Report headline. writes: "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...

    See the video of an obviously drunk, slurring and sputtering Max Baucus on the Senate floor. Then decide for yourself - ignore the MSM spin-doctors attempt to cover this up. Do pay attention to which MSM outlets either ignore this huge story or attempt to spin it for the Democrats - instead of reporting the news, most of the MSM has resorted to cheerleading and spin-doctoring the news to suit the DNC. This video deserves its own thread as the MSM attacks on it have already begun. The lapdog MSM is going into damage control mode to cover up this...

    This video of Democratic Senator Max Baucus during the debate on the Democrats' health care takeover is all over the web. Most observers say that Baucus was drunk. We report, you decide: [click link above for video] Iclaim no expertise in this area beyond normal human observation, but, for what it's worth, I would say that he was drunk, but is an experienced drinker and was not terribly impaired. What is most interesting to me is how close he comes to articulating the Democrats' real complaint against Republican Senators: they are traitors to their class, i.e., the political class. The...
