25. There's such a thing as a functional alcoholic...
...I guess you'd say closet drinker.
Surely there'd be indications? I don't mean things like ETOH or fresh Listerine on the breath, choking on pretzels, falling down and running into trees...those are easy.
But mood swings or behavioral (besides the cyber-sex) aberrations?
Forget that he's Rep Mark Foley (R-Slimeball) mask and look at overall job performance...just as you would an ordinary person...
how is that?
Is this the behavior of a functional alcoholic?

And before anybody starts flaming me....

I AM NOT DEFENDING, EXCUSING, OR CONDONING THIS MAN'S ACTIONS OR BEHAVIOR.

I'm only asking for some information about whether he may be a 'functional alcoholic'...which excuses nothing. Zip. Nada. Bupkis.
