    You mean extremist Islam?

    Because that was one hell of a misguided comment to make.

    Hmm, I don't know about this. Her opinion may not be politically correct but she's entitled to it, and I understand why CNN would fire her, I just hate that it happened on Twitter! **** twitter, worst invention of the last decade.
