‘President Barack?’: Twitterati abuzz over ABC’s Diane Sawyer being off her game


Diane Sawyer’s election night performance left some viewers asking if she had begun celebrating Tuesday’s election a bit early.

Co-anchoring ABC News’ coverage, the veteran journalist struck a different manner from her practiced, straight-news-delivering style.

Sawyer spoke more slowly than usual while seeming to prop herself on outstretched arms at the anchor desk she shared with George Stephanopoulos.

“OK,” she said at one point around 10 p.m. EST, “I wanna — can we have our music, because this is another big one here? Minnesota, we’re ready to project Minnesota, rrright now. … Well, tonight we know that President Barack has won Minnesota,” she rambled on, stumbling over the president’s name.

Maybe Sawyer was just weary from the recent torrent of news.

In any case, the Twitterverse took quick notice and began cracking wise.

    Why not, most of the networks pronounced him the winner before the election was over. Why not celebrate the fact?

    She’s a babbling, leftist scrunt working with treasonous propagandists. Maybe she had a stroke. It is to be hoped.

    Don’t know if she was drunk, but it looks like about half of the voters were either drunk, or stoned, or just stupid.

    She’s a washed up, old, has been, never was, drunken, stoned, worthless, lying propagandist.

    So who really cares? Does anyone even watch her and “Tiny Blow Dry?”

    @Dano, good one!
    There’s always that “cough medicine” excuse. It’s pretty airtight.
