Senator Baucus: Legislating under the Influence?

Video of Senator Max Baucus talking on the floor of the senate is making the rounds on the internet. You may be wondering why video of Senator Baucus would be so interesting. When you see it you'll understand why. The man appeared to be drunk at the time. He slurred his words, rambled incoherently at times, and even shouted down another Senator. Of course, you're seeing this for the first time even though this took place last week because the mainstream media didn't cover it. Here's the video and you can come to your own conclusion whether Senator Baucus enjoyed a few too many adult beverages before taking the floor or was drunk on power:

Bookworm invites you to compare and contrast two videos of drunks in the driver's seat.

John at Power Line asks if this video is proof that Baucus was drunk or just plain stupid.

It would be real fun to have a law against legislating under the influence and force the Capitol Police to breathalyze these folks before they could take the floor or vote. And have to submit random urine samples (along with ALL their staff) at least three times a year.

I have harp about this before. Congress think is so important to screen for drugs and regulate behavior in sports, military and workers. However the legislator body that actually passes laws instead of simply entertaining people like sportsman do, have no regulations or screenings. I suppose there are those who think it is ok for someone to be drunk or on drugs while passing laws.

I saw that this morning. My very first thought was, "Is he drunk?"

Even if he was, we'll never know it. It'll be passed off saying he isn't getting enough sleep from working hard all hours to bring you thoughtless ingrates healthcare reform.

recovered liberal democrat:

They might as well be drunk. Liberals don't make sense when they speak anyway. And, they are just as unreasonable as a drunk. The big problem is that the drunk might wake up out of his stupor and realize he was an idiot. The chances of a liberal waking out of his stupor is slim. I know first hand about that.

Oh yeah, he is drunk. I would no more get into a car with this man than have him decide my healthcare.

Congress is the closest thing to royality that we have. They live their life above the fray. Time to give them all a dose of reality in the voting booths. We don't need "Truthers", we need "Boothers". Term limits for all politicians!
