BMD (Birds of Mass Destruction)

Dick Cheney (or his agents) must be reading Effect Measure. If wild birds are the bird flu problem, let's kill the wild birds. On Saturday he decided (as usual) to take things into his own hands. Of course whenever you undertake to protect the country, you have to expect some collateral damage. So while trying to kill a terrorist bird, Dead-Eye Dick instead shot his hunting companion, Mr. Harry Whittington, 78 years old. It was not explained why Mr. Whittington suddenly decided to fly up from the south Texas brush like a quail.

After the incident the Vice quit for the day, as he'd bagged his limit of rich Republican contributors.
