If you’re coming out of your post holiday sugar induced coma and wondering just exactly how it came to pass that the Senate passed this monstrosity Dusty Harry refers to as “reform”, you need view nothing more than this clip of Montana’s very own Max Baucus.

Max Baucus – Montana Orator

As you can see, Max is drunk off his hindquarters. I’m surprised he’s able to mantain himself in vertical. Evidently one must get this drunk to kill enough brain cells necessary to stomach Dusty Harry’s health care plan.

I wonder what he’d blow on a breathalyzer. My guess is about 0.18.
