Common Name: MSM Vulture
Scientific Name: Catharsis Aura
DESCRIPTION: This vulture has a thick head. It has beady eyes that are always looking rightward for any sign of weakness. The female is usually larger and heavier than the more effeminate male of the species. Only a few of the species believe in individuality, but most define their lives according to group identity.
HABITAT: Begins its life in nests located in ivory towers then migrates to coastal cities like NYC and LA (sometimes Chicago and Washington DC).
PREDATOR: of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc., anyone that can still understand that puzzling 100+ year old document known as "The Constitution", and any American citizen that wants to limit Federal government power or spending.
OUTLOOK: These birds are threatened with extinction due to (1) their peculiar habit of pecking off their right wing, effectively making them unable to stay balanced and (2) a growing indifference of the American public to left-wing-only news.
NOTES: MSM Vultures are loud birds. They will hiss and squawk continuously whenever there are political points to be scored for the left. They are born with a guilty conscience, but assuage that guilt by making a big show of assigning blame to the American Right (regardless of the facts) - thus leading to catharsis.
