Was Rep. Dana Rohrabacher Drunk During CNN Appearance On Government Shutdown?
80 proof before noon?
A paranoid Dana Rohrabacher insists that I want him defeated from his comfortable congressional perch, but the truth is that every Christmas I beg Santa for the gift that keeps on giving: the congressman's re-election.
An inadvertent clown of epic proportions, the Costa Mesa Republican continually provides easy newspaper fodder with mind-numbing, hypocritical rants often fueled by liberal tequila consumption.
With that fact in mind, consider a question asked earlier this month at Wonkette.com by ex-Weekling Rebecca Schoenkopf (a.k.a. Commie Girl): "On Scale of One to Dana Rohrabacher, How Drunk is Dana Rohrabacher in This Video?"
Schoenkopf's post points to Rohrabacher's live appearance on CNN to discuss the then-looming federal government shutdown.
The usually scowling congressman is giddy, his eyes are watery and he seems to think everything is funny--like Otis on Mayberry RFD.
Note in the upper right corner of the screen the time of Rohrabacher's apparent intoxication: 11:22 a.m.
Does Congressman Rohrabacher have a substance abuse problem?
