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?

Liquid breakfast, Dana?

Yes or no must get removed from politicians vocabulary when they get into office.

You had 'Ron Varasteh for U.S. Congress last election. He was legitimate and took about 40% of the vote. Hopefully he will run again!

This man has been in office for too many years.  He is a disgrace to the office and needs to be replaced.  Ron Varasteh ran against him last election and took right at 40% of the vote.  He may run again in 2014.  In this republican district......will the people be so fed up with Rohrabacher that they will support him?  Let's hope so!

He was so giddy because he got to blow a guy in the men's room 20 minutes earlier

You want him defeated? He's my representative in Washington DC. I want a legitimate candidate to run against him.

I get him confused with Issa. Am I a bad Californian?
