As NewsBusters reported, a deadly tornado stroke Oklahoma Monday.
At approximately the same time it was bearing down to kill innocent people, Lizz Winstead, the co-creator of Comedy Central's Daily Show, commented on Twitter, "This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives":
Those checking that link surely have found that this tweet has been scrubbed for Winstead, after getting heat, felt contrite:
Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry. #LetMeHaveIt

Must be nice to think you can mercilessly attack people and decide if you're wrong you can correct your faux pas with a half-hearted apology.
Tis liberalism, my friends.
Despite her apology, you have to agree with Joe Concha who calls Winstead "vomitous."
