CNN: "Katrina worse than beheadings"

Soledad O'Brien, CNN's eye candy reporter who once referred to a cow in a puddle of water as "that poor water buffalo", has graced us with another poignant observation. From NewsMax:
CNN's "American Morning" host Soledad O'Brien said Tuesday that Hurricane Katrina evacuees housed at the Superdome were worse off than beheading victims in Baghdad.

The normally mild-mannered newswoman offered the overwrought observation while speaking at Redbook Magazine's "Movers and Shakers" awards luncheon in New York.

According to the New York Daily News, O'Brien blurted out:

"It is a sad thing to watch military veterans cry as they tell you the beheadings in Baghdad were less horrific than what they saw as 30,000 people marched from the Superdome through a shopping mall and onto buses to who knows where."

Ms. O'Brien didn't identify the veterans who told her that Katrina victims would have been better off being beheaded.
Emphasis mine. What you rather experience: (A) A category 4 or 5 hurricane through which you would likely (though not guaranteed) live; or (B) Having your head sawed off by bloodthirsty Islamofascist terrorists while you were awake, and would have a 100% chance of not surviving it?

Hmmm...decisions, decisions.
