See, it's funny because a lot of conservatives think natural disasters are "controlled" by an invisible sky wizard. She was mocking their ignorance, not the death and destruction she had no knowledge of at the time.

No need to defend her, just pointing out the fallacy of this faux outrage.

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?

The comment was in poor taste so soon and poorly written, but it seemed to be poking at that old chestnut that gets thrown out every farking time there's a natural disaster while a fundamentalist has an angry erection from dudes.

Well, the fact that she genuinely seems sorry is a bit different than the classic "I'm sorry you were offended" go-to tactic so many modern Republicans seem fond of when they're backtracking from rape comments.

However, it was a horrible thing to say, and I don't anyone in this thread is going to actually defend the remark itself. Just how she handled it afterward.

Classy move, Glen Beck.  Good job.

It was a tasteless joke that, had this been a more 'commonplace' overhyped natural disaster would have been hysterical 24 hours later.  However, it wasn't 24 hours later, and it wasn't a typical tornado.  I didn't like when NJ got mocked for getting hurricaned, I didn't like those who tried to say God hates liberals for it, and I don't like that tweet.  But goddamnit (this time) Glen Beck is on the right side, IMO.  Bad bad joke that was made too soon, and was a mistake.


Which is why she very quickly apologized. A sincere apology.

My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by the tornado in Oklahoma.

having said that, they will rebuild & another tornado will rip through their new homes & towns because as you are all aware it's the farking "Tornado Belt".

At the very least, can we rebuild with concrete? not all but a good percentage of homes on Guam are concrete you know why? because they hold up better to Typhoons.

or was/is rebuilding with lumber construction some sort of F-U to the tornado and a symbol of American tenacity? Maybe if we put a couple more nails for shear value the tornado won't simply lift the entire structure off its foundation?

maybe we can pray.

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.
