Drunk? The Republicans were expected to surrender. They surrendered. They lived down to everyone's very low expectations. I think that La Tourette must be drunk to think that the McConnell and company would do anything other than what they did. The party of stupid is an embarrassment to anyone who voted for them.

How bad do some House Republicans think the Senate bill is? Ohio Rep. Steven LaTourette thinks the only way that number of Senate Republicans could have voted for the plan was if they were drunk:

"I think our sense, at least in the House, was that a number of the Republicans that voted for it must have been drunk, because it really was a number that wasn't reflective of where we thought some of these people were going to be on a bill like this," he said after emerging from a House GOP caucus meeting.
