I'll tell you who it targets: Anyone lacking in judgment enough to keep living in Oklahoma after they continue to be able to count on deadly town-destroying tornadoes about as often as Ohio gets mild snowstorms.

I'd say, after the first five or six towns in Kansas or Oklahoma were destroyed, I'd have left.

This isn't a politics thing. This is a "get the hell away from a dangerous state" thing.

Bloody William: How many preachers would be saying this was punishment for making gay marriage legal if it was in a more liberal and less statistically common natural disaster area? In fact, let's forget the hypothetical. How many preachers HAVE said this in the past?


If this were Detroit or New York City or San Francisco, you can bet that Pat Robertson would have been on TV  that day  to remind all of us that it was God's punishment for the gays, the Blacks, or whatever other liberal thing he wanted to condemn.

THAT day. No doubt.

Am I to understand that she created the Daily Show the way Pete Best created the Beatles?

skullkrusher: the fact that the IRS admitted that what they did was wrong ain't enough to convince you. No siree - that's just politics too. And look over here! Left wing groups were flagged for closer inspection too! That means the IRS lied about their apology and all is good.

You want to talk about how "scandalous" it is? Sure, it isn't terribly scandalous. It was wrong but it ain't gonna cause riots in the streets. Did BO instruct the IRS to unfairly single out right wing groups for audits? No, there is no evidence to suggest that. To pretend that it was all ok and that the firings, result of the audit of the IRS, apologies and talks of potential criminal prosecutions are all political? Well, that's just plain dumb.


If you think there is even the slightest chance of one single criminal prosecution as a result of this trifle, you're high.

And now you say that it isn't terribly scandalous, but a little while ago you assured me that this was the biggest news story in the history of ever, and that Lizz Winstead's comments surely had nothing to do with the Pat Robertson-esque nonsense which it echoes but rather simply must have been a reference to the IRS disaster because it was without a doubt the burning issue on the front of everyone's minds. So, which is it?

BMulligan: And now you say that it isn't terribly scandalous, but a little while ago you assured me that this was the biggest news story in the history of ever


yeah. Not terribly scandalous and yet it has STILL dominated the news. It's like something can not be a huge scandal and still be a big news story. Playing dumb doesn't suit you.

BMulligan: and that Lizz Winstead's comments surely had nothing to do with the Pat Robertson-esque nonsense which it echoes but rather simply must have been a reference to the IRS disaster because it was without a doubt the burning issue on the front of everyone's minds. So, which is it?


You believe otherwise? Then you, sir, are the one who is high. Check her Twitter feed. She has a post about her making a "political joke". But yeah, she was probably talking about Pat Farking Robertson and not this news story that you're pretending hasn't really been a big newstory because skullkrusher doesn't think it is terribly scandalous

jehovahs witness protection: Liberals on Fark to defend her in 3, 2, 1


I'm not going to defend her. I'll put her squarely in the company of the Falwell types who blame gays for Katrina. Only they're serious and she's not.

Do you disagree?

She was probably attempting to do ironic humor, realized it was inappropriate and offered seemingly genuine heartfelt apologies for the poor timing.

Whereas the thing that she was lampooning is said by religious leaders and conservative pundits almost every time there's an earthquake or a superstorm or hurricane and are never really apologized for and keep happening every time some Liberal enclave gets hit with a natural disaster.

In other words: Typical Republican false equivalencies.

She's not even defending herself. Why would anyone else? That's what you do not get. Liberals here on fark do not defend anything a liberal says blindly. We do however accept honest apologies and move on.l

"'Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry. #LetMeHaveIt' shetweeted about three and a half hours after her original joke.

Wouldn't it be awesome for a big tornado to hit Chicago?

I'm sorry.


Being Republican means NEVER having to say you're sorry.  Whether you're Ann Coulter, who said that the worst thing about 9/11 was that they didn't fly into the New York Times building, Louis Gohmert, who blamed the body count on the Aurora shooting victims on the victims themselves, or Steve King, who said he sympathized with a maniac who flew his plane into an IRS building.

By the way, who gets more airtime, Lizz Winstead or the three Republicans I just named?

She said something stupid, and there's no denying that.  But, as usual, false equivalence is false.

First paragraph of the article:

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.

I can see how you missed that it was a joke, what with her being a comedian/writer for comedy show and how the actual article mentions it was a joke twice.

In response to your comment about false equivalences:  Tu Quoque.

You can be stupid in two languages!  Impressive!

purple kool-aid and a jigger of formaldehyde: zeroman987: Pants full of macaroni!!: Bloody William: Obama, because he worked in Chicago and was in politics there, made conservatives obsess over "Chicago-style politics" and paint the entire city as something out of Sin City with unions. It's another phrase they don't understand or think about, just throw it out like it's a magic word to hex liberals.

In all fairness, they've hated Chicago long before Obama emerged from it.  Mayor Daley and all that.

They hate Chicago because it is the city is where the best and brightest people that want to stay in the Midwest go. They are pissed that not only are their kids becoming libruls, but that they are living with ethnic and racial minorities and the gheys. They are also pissed its happening in their own backyard and not on the coasts, which would be easier to ignore.

The people in downstate illinois hate chicago because chicago supports the rest of the state and they resent it. The only people that pay their keep downstate are the professors and the farmers. The rest of the state is pretty much a bunch of out of work factory workers that are on disability or addicted to drugs, or both. Say what you will about chicago, but at least it isn't Illitucky.

I'm sure this will offend many. They might be the best and brightest, but the biggest thing that I remember from my trip to Chicago is that I don't think I saw 1 attractive person the entire time I was there.  My 16 year old was the one who brought this up and damn if he wasn't right once I started looking around.  Ugly people everywhere I looked. Must be those death dogs and foot deep pizza's they eat out there.
For as lame as living in SLC and UT is, there are hot women EVERYWHERE here. Everywhere you look.  They won't have sex with you, and if they do they want to get married after, but at least the human landscape is very nice to look at.


You must not have been near the lake. Tons of very good looking people biking and jogging on a nice day.

Then again my tastes aren't white/blonde women; in chicago they are more pale and dumpy than in somewhere like Florida because of all the perogis they eat.

Barfmaker: johnryan51: No different than Anne coulter. Outrageous statement.

It's completely different, in this case she realized she'd said something bad and retracted it and apologized profusely admitted it was insensitive and inappropriate...how is any of that similar to Ann Coulter, because they both have vaginas?

Hey, conservatives say the same thing and worse about every natural disaster that occurs anywhere in the world, not her fault that they can't take every now and then what they dish out on a near-constant basis. Still insensitive and mean no matter who says it, but you can't ignore the fact that one side has practically made it their anthem.

Remember when 9/11 was declared God's punishment for America allowing homosexuality and abortion? How about when Katrina was declared God's punishment for America allowing homosexuality and abortion? The other major tornado disaster a couple of years ago? Hurricane Sandy? Hell, the Indonesian earthquake/tsunami and Japan earthquake/tsunami were declared God's punishment for America allowing homosexuality and abortion.

EbolaNYC: That's mild compared to some of the Whrrgrble I have read from conservatards for the past decade.

Besides the joke is, EVERY TIME there is some disaster, some conservatard religious freak is screaming how it's God's will to punish liberals.


Those aren't jokes, though.  Those are

Why do you dislike Chicago?

Because Obama has something to do with it. That's not even a joke.

Obama, because he worked in Chicago and was in politics there, made conservatives obsess over "Chicago-style politics" and paint the entire city as something out of Sin City with unions. It's another phrase they don't understand or think about, just throw it out like it's a magic word to hex liberals.


I wonder if conservatives believe unions are like that, admittedly unified, group of prostitutes in Old Town in Sin City.

No, Saying Ann Coulter is a Pussy is assuming that she has both depth and the capacity to give pleasure, which she has neither of.


In the meantime, does anyone else find it a bit odd that the biggest weather disasters nearly always seem to target the states whose primary voting party regularly claims that they are doing "God"'s work, and that they are keeping the disasters from happening, and that the other states are the reason "God" tries to smite the country with disasters? Either their personal choice in deity has a really, really bad aim, or Irony's just released another posthumous squelch as it's jumped up and down upon.

TV's Vinnie:

But when Pat Robertson says that bad things are "God's Judgement", it's all good. Right Subbo?

It's a whole different issue -- it has nothing to do with jokes in horrid taste. And Democrats seem to be pathologically unable to accept responsibility for ANYTHING. In that, Lizz Winstead certainly out-classes most here; she managed to simply apologize for her own bad actions without trying to find some Republican she could tag with a worse statement. Truly, Obama "never did anything wrong, just ask him" is your leader. I don't recall -- did anyone blame Bush for this yet?

No. It IS the same thing. All of this crap about "god's judgement" being used to explain things from AIDS to little kids being killed. The WBC has literally made a business out of the whole "god's judgement" racket!

muck4doo:

Let's all face it. If Al Gore hadn't had the election stolen from him by the lizard peoples in 2000, the weather would be much better today. No tornadoes. There also would have not been a 9/11. Al Gore would have took that memo that said "Al-Qaeda determined to strike in U.S.A.", and kicked Afghanistan's ass beforehand.

Shouldn't that be "would OF took that memo?"
