Is it just me, or does it seem like he's drunk in half his speeches?

Alan Brinkley claims that after Roosevelt recruited Coughlin to help him with his campaign, Coughlin developed an unusual affinity for him - stopping by the White House, calling, sending telegrams, writing letters, developing nicknames for the president and his staff - all of which FDR couldn't stand.  Combine that with the intensity of his speeches and he's just downright creepy.
