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.

I was pretty tired when I saw her and I was thinking she was drunk, but I'm a Diane fan so I just kind of decided I was just too tired. I don't want to believe that she's drunk, damnit.

I watched a Canadian newschannel late last night -- they were all quite silly by the end -- something about being prepared for a long night with a lot of coffee - and it was ending much sooner. These guys were giddy, all of them.

Something is definitely off. I don't think it's alcohol though - if anything, I'd say pills. But it may very well just be exhaustion.

I hope she has seen a doctor - these could be signs of a stroke

I've been saying for the past year she's been having TIA's. ABC better get her a MRI of the brain quick!

She doesn't sound drunk to me. She sounds tired and possibly sick - her voice was raspy like she has a cold.
