Wonder what you would find if you frisked Senator Max Baucus (D-MT)?
Answer: He might have been suckin’ back on grandpa’s ol’ cough medicine before giving his speech on the Senate floor.
HAHA! What the…???
After watching this video, it appears that Senator Max Baucus stumbled into the wrong ‘party’. He must of confused himself with the Democratic Party and a party being held down the street at a local bar! Honestly, if you want to make the argument that he’s sober here in this video, then we really need to look into the details about taking away his driver’s license for good… The man couldn’t even stand up straight!
What a disgrace! Our tax dollars should not be paying the salaries of individuals who choose to display this type of behavior or leadership in our own United States Senate!
Side-Note: The mainstream media and late night talk shows should go absolutely nuts over this video clip… That’s if they even decide to report it. If this were one of the top Republicans in the Senate or House, this video would be on repeat for weeks.
Enjoy Mr. Baucus’ slurs and rants!
*UPDATE* – December 30, 2009
Sen. Baucus (D-MT) released a statement saying that he was sober and then attempted to attack those who would dare question that:
A spokesman for Baucus released the following statement: “When his friend of 30 years Ted Kennedy, with whom he had fought so hard to provide health care to children, was being used as a cheap foil to oppose health care reform, Senator Baucus gave a passionate defense. Unfortunately, those who want to kill any meaningful reform, turned it into an unfounded, untrue personal smear internet rumor. This is beyond the pale and this type of gutter politics has no place in the public sphere. It is this type of slander that makes Montanans, and Americans, disgusted with the politics as usual in Washington. And what is even more sad is that such a personal attack would be given any validity at all, let alone being elevated to the status of ‘news’.”
Easy! Calm down killer. Where did this Sen. Kennedy (D-MA) nonsense come from? All I have to say is this: I graduated from Michigan State University – known for being one of the top party schools – and I know what drunk/intoxicated people sound like… Trust me. After watching this video, I would honestly compare Sen. Baucus’ slurs speech to those students who are trying to enter Rick’s or P.T. O’Maley’s at 1 A.M.
Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) is a joke. 😆 Sorry Montanans.
