    Bizarre Baucus Behavior on Senate Floor Ignored by MSM
    By P.J. Gladnick
    December 27, 2009

    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 bill that it explains his strange rant. In any event, if a conservative such as Jim DeMint or Jeff Sessions had acted this way in the Senate, the mainstream media would have featured the video over and over and over again. Instead, since this was Democrat Max Baucus, this video was almost completely ignored by the MSM.

    Since the MSM has provided no information on the Baucus performance, your humble correspondent has searched the blogosphere for answers. Here is an observation from Susan Flowers at Examiner.Com:

    Ease up, Susan. Perhaps Baucus, in the spirit (or spirits) of the season, was simply full of good Christmas cheer (hic!).

    Brendan Calling weighs in:

    We're Off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz!

    Hey, Max! Could you hand me a pint of Old Granddad. I want whatever you're having. I wanna have fun too!!!

    And, finally, Glenn Reynolds at InstaPundit answers Max's question about where the courage is:

    Is that Chuck Schumer at stage left trying to get a long hook around Baucus to drag him off the scene?
