Good news! Wolfowitz says bird flu could kill us all.
World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz says bird flu would bugger the word economy and kill billions. Hurray!
Paul Wolfowitz was one of the major architects of the Iraq war, the guy who said it would pay for itself and wouldn't cost American taxpayers a dime. Considering he was off by 300 billion dollars (and counting), we can figure he's completely wrong about this, too. Wonderful news!
And it gets better.
President Bush is expected to turn his laser-like attention toward "a detailed action plan" for how the United States would deal with this threat from birds.
"I don't like parrots. You can't trust 'em," the President said. "They talk. And that parrot in Nogales is a liar."
So relax, eat all the Chinese chicken you want. The bird flu isn't a problem.
Thanks, Mr. Wolfowitz! Thanks, Mr. President!
