CNN Questions George LeMieux: Is Saving Lives in Haiti a "Priority"?

U.S. aid workers are pretty busy today, what with Haiti experiencing apocalyptic conditions and all. But the coordinators of that incredibly complex and chaotic rescue effort surely have enough time to chat with our Broward-born Sen. George LeMieux, who wants to learn about their effort. Otherwise, he won't be able to answer tough questions like from CNN, which yesterday demanded to know: "Are you making (rescue efforts) are the priority? Right now? Above everything else?"

Next time, CNN, please give this interview to Congressman Alcee Hastings, who's liable to answer your question in fewer words. "No shit, Sherlock," or something to that effect.
