    Never seen that clip before, but he doesn't seem drunk to me in it.

    But you're right - he was clearly very different to how he is now in terms of general all round talking ability.

      from 1994 and 1978 show a very silvertongued fellow.

      My theory for his "degeneration," aside from his family's unquestionable degeneracy, is that he's in over his head and scared shitless.  That would hobble the tongue.

        perhaps old age is setting in early. critial thinking goes at some point. i think its going for him. there has been a MAJOR change in his behavior just since 2001. my guess and its just that is that it is a combo of pills and stress. he is probably on  perscription meds and that is what is causing the degeneration

        •  "... old age is setting in early." Yep, (none)
          might very well be. In fact, pre-senile dementia is precisely one of the theories going around.
