Incredible

Michelle Malkin has posted a "letter of apology" from Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll. Knoll crashed the funeral of a Marine, possibly as a campaign ploy. The family was understandably pissed, and Knoll wrote:
...after I learned through press reports that your family was offended by my attendance, I was incredibly upset.


It's one of my pet peeves that people are constantly misusing the word "incredibly." Here though, it appears Ms. Knoll has stumbled onto a correct usage. That she was upset by the family's taking offense is, in fact, incredible.
