    I wonder if they were just using the "designated driver" and "sober up" metaphorically, or if it was a not-so-subtle recognition of actual alcohol consumption seriously impairing the legislative process.

    I have no intention of becoming a doctrinaire Prohibitionist. But in most workplaces, it is understood that you do not show up for work drunk or badly hung over, because your performance suffers too much and you're obnoxious to be around. If you're in a job that involves public safety, that's explicit. But if you're on the verge of crashing the entire global financial system, apparently, it's fine???? At least for men -- I doubt women legislators get any leeway at all to show up drunk in public.
