Remember when Alice Stewart, late of Secretary of State Mark Martin's crack staff, drew national attention for rough handling of a CNN reporter and others in Stewart's service to Michele Bachmann?

I posted a Twitter note about that. I got a response over the weekend from Zeina Awad, a correspondent for Al Jazeera's English-language programming. Her Tweet:

@arkansasblog @ryanlizza when #AliceStewart spoke2me she said "Comprende?" #AlJazeera tag+my 'funny' name got her thinkn I no spk Englsh?
