Wait, she finally has done something of note—or rather, hasn't. Walters refuses to hold an in-person town hall with her constituents. Instead, she held a call-in town hall in May, whatever the hell that was. So in the spirit of that, Orange Feathers contributing artist Leslie Agan imagined Walters as the ultimate deluded gabacha: Norma Desmond of Sunset Boulevard.
