During last night’s ABC election coverage Diane Sawyer was clearly not her usual self. Tipsy, slurry, feeling no pain, three sheets to the wind. Speaking as an ex-drinker, I think I know the behavior. Look at George Stephanopoulos as she gets into trouble. He’s clearly sensing what’s up.

Does Sawyer not have an assistant who’s seen Flight? What did drunk Denzel do before the big testimony scene at the end? Are you going to tell me Sawyer’s assistant couldn’t call a John Goodman-type character and have him rush over to the studio, etc.?
