Diane Sawyer

Drunk, Tired or Flustered?

Diane Sawyer
was the toast of ABC last night. The question -- was she toasted?

A wacky Sawyer, slurring her words and rambling on about nothing, spoke haltingly as she tried to navigate the election returns.

Lots of viewers turned off their TV sets wondering if Sawyer was anchoring with a .12 blood alcohol level -- i.e., she seemed really drunk.

One thing's for sure ... Something very different was going on with her as she clumsily threw to reporters in the field.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.

Maybe she had a stroke? I love how George is just staring at her, he doesn't even make an expression
when she looks at him!

Leaning on the desk like that, I don't think there's any wonder what's been going on. George does the morning show then this and he looks perfectly fine, almost baffled by what's going on with Diane.

i would need to be drunk to work w/ George.
TMZ should play the piece w/ the rambling commentator guy on ABC panel calling "this presidential race the last between 2 WHITE men".

I don' think she's drunk. She's either very tired or her blood sugar is low. Maybe she's diabetic.

Long night, on NBC they were stumbling over words. Remember Diane is not a spring chick anymore and should have been in bed by 9

I watch her program on a daily basis and she seemed tired. She could of had some wine, who knows, but she was far from being drunk.
