So I guess that you've never heard anyone who has a traumatic brain injury talk? What about someone who is diabetic who's blood sugar is low? Have you ever heard anyone who is suffering from migrains talk? Did you know that some side effects of certain drugs cause slurred speech? Parkinsons and Multiple Sclerosis both cause slurred speech. That's not to mention brain tumors and strokes. That's only a few things, outside of intoxication, that cause slurred speech
Gal, you completely missed the point of the thread, GEEZ. Why can't you just accept the fact he's a drunk and a Moron on top of that.
The point of the thread was a question, "Is Max Baucas Drunk?" Such a question can not have a definitive answer unless we have more information. I have a brother who has had a mini-stroke (layman's term), who now speaks with a slur when he had none before. But that is the ONLY result of his event. He has not lost any of his mental capacities, he can walk a straight line without wobbling, but he has slurred speech. Upon first meeting him you might think he is drunk by the way he speaks.
Thank goodness that the video presented above can not be used to determine ones sobriety. Some on here should also be thankful that their written words won't be used for the same purpose.
