You’ve got to give Politico‘s Chief White House Correspondent and Playbook proprietor Mike Allen credit for going through life without Zzzzzzz’s and for being alert at the ass crack of dawn to yuk it up with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on “Morning Joe.”

But today there are a whole range of options as to what happened during Monday morning’s mystifying appearance in which he hemmed and hawed and spoke in sloooowwwww motion. Was he a) drunk, b) eating marshmallows that didn’t dissolve quickly enough c) taking to a studio audience of Kindergarten children we can’t see d) feeling the effects of someone slipping roofies into his “Morning Joe” Starbucks coffee or e) kidnapped by martians or f) Propofol anyone?

Whatever the case, WTF happened is anyone’s guess as he tried to spit out his words and offered mangled, stalled, slurry explanations of the day’s events.
