Sorry Glen, no forgiveness for Winstead

She thought she was making a topical political joke, but a co-creator of ‘The Daily Show’ managed to enrage many of her followers after tweeting joke about the Oklahoma tornado’s political motivations.
‘This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives,’ wrote comedian Lizz Winstead, in a tweet, around 3:30 Monday afternoon.
The tweet was an apparent attempt at using the occasion of the May 20 twister to comment on the scandal currently plaguing the IRS and Obama administration.
Of course, the tweet quickly disappeared and the apologies began, including a Glen Beck tweet telling people to leave her alone, insinuating that all of us has made "a bad joke" at one time or another and using the hashtag #castfirststone.

Sorry, Glen.  What Winstead said wasn't a joke.  It was never funny, it was horrifically timed, and I will spend part of my day going out of my way to make sure that I don't support any endeavor she is involved with.  Since she writes for the Daily Show, it shouldn't be hard for me to avoid her and her toxic stream of vomit.
