I honestly thought this was the case and glad you cleared it up Steve.


I have been around him several times in heated discussions and that is how he sounds when he gets really worked up and tries to talk to fast. I don't know him personally and have no clue if [*], but in a former job I was around during a few heated exchanges and that is Baucus getting wound up.

People are quick to make assumptions based on their experience but it really doesn't apply if they have not seen personally the speech impediment he has in action.
