Eek… I’m gonna go with “hammered”

Chicost84 on November 7, 2012 at 12:27 PM

I vote Hammered.

“I have – I have – I have a question I wanted to ask. At one point, President Obama’s campaign put an exclamation point after “Forward.” [Cough.] It was just “Forward,” and then it had an exclamation point. When did they decide that was the right message for them?”

She was definitely shifasted.

TROLLCOTT!!!

Alpha_Male on November 7, 2012 at 12:33 PM

Trashed.

rdbrewer on November 7, 2012 at 12:37 PM

This was EARLY in the evening. I was watching. She sounded & acted like this even around 7pm est. That is normal news time. I’m voting hammered.

mgman on November 7, 2012 at 12:48 PM

I’ve been around for a while. Been drunk, been dead tired from working days at a time, straight through with no sleep. She is drunk.

1. Alcoholic
2. Parkinson’s
3. Progressive supranuclear palsy

None of which are terribly pleasant.

At the very BEST, she came to her job on the biggest night of the year with a bottle of Jack in her purse. That is not healthy behavior.

playblu on November 7, 2012 at 12:58 PM

Giddy! She was relieved to know her guy was gonna win – and unafraid to show it.

Either that – or she was totally sh!tfaced.

Mmmmm – think I’m gonna go with sh!tfaced.

Hill60 on November 7, 2012 at 1:33 PM

She was hammered…

OmahaConservative on November 7, 2012 at 1:44 PM

Trashed.

rdbrewer on November 7, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Tired old media tramp. At this stage in her propoganda prostituted, souless life, I’d say has the right to be smashed. Or trashed. What have you. But she does dress nice, doesn’t she?
To Ms. Sawyer.

“Drunker than Ol’ Cooter Brown” as my late grandfather used to say.

TexasEngineer on November 7, 2012 at 2:02 PM

Just look at the ongoing looks of “why is she still talking???” on the face of George Steponyercrankalopis…he’s stuck between amused and “WTF am I doing here?”

TexasEngineer on November 7, 2012 at 2:05 PM

If you remember the Republican debate Sawyer moderated, she looked drunk that night. Don’t let the plastic surgery fool you, Diane was a low level staffer in the Nixon administration. That was 40 years ago.

I’m going to go with sh!tfaced moist!

pain train on November 7, 2012 at 2:13 PM

Doesn’t she have a history of being drunk?

Blake on November 7, 2012 at 2:14 PM

Stiff as a boiled owl.

Mason on November 7, 2012 at 2:33 PM

That’s drunk, that’s a happy drunk.

xdwall on November 7, 2012 at 3:26 PM

Every time I’ve seen her lately on-air, she has appeared high on something. It’s an embarrassment to ABC, in my opinion. However, (and I realize this video was a series of edited clips) it was hilarious to watch her co-anchor. It also brings to mind the much publicized problems with cocaine use by the late Jessica Savitch.

MustLoveBlogs on November 7, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Burtation, for sure.

DarthBrooks on November 7, 2012 at 3:48 PM

I’m voting for prescription medication gone terribly wrong.

Athanasius on November 7, 2012 at 4:08 PM

Tired and drunk. Maybe a bit sexed up too.

abobo on November 7, 2012 at 4:29 PM

I know tired and I know drunk, and there’s no question Dianne baby had been over-served. At least she’s not a mean drunk, misguided but not mean.

TXUS on November 7, 2012 at 5:59 PM

I do wonder if,within the Electoral apparatus,
they too were drunk,and didn’t bother to count the votes!
(a tad sarc)

canopfor on November 7, 2012 at 7:35 PM

Shitfaced. And Steffi knows it. And he’s none too comfortable with the idea.

Dopenstrange on November 7, 2012 at 8:03 PM

I’ve seen this brought up before. I think that’s just how she talks. I doubt she’d show up loaded multiple times, unless it’s pain killers. But anyway, who cares. Our country is doomed. At least until 2016. lol

fatlibertarianinokc on November 7, 2012 at 8:55 PM

She’s drunk.

sgtstogie on November 7, 2012 at 9:25 PM

I wonder what she woke up with…..
