(Chicago Breaking News)   Durbin asks Obama to appoint "carp czar." Why is it always a czar? Why not "sultan of carp" or "carp baron" or something?   (chicagobreakingnews.com ) divider line

Asian carp are a serious threat to the Great Lakes ecosystem and jobs.

It may seem silly to some on the surface but these carp are voracious eaters who threaten not just sports fishing stock but commercial fishing, tourism and other industries. If allowed to to infiltrate the Great Lakes Basin these fish, absent any natural predator, may push to extinction other Great Lakes species. Their affect on water quality is unknown.

I hope some action is taken before we lose the battle.

Honest question: Why are these carp such a problem that a Senator feels it necessary to start up a new bureaucracy to organise a response against them?

jaytkay: Anybody who biatches about White House Czars is a teabagger moron (yes, redundant, I know).

The Bush administration had 47 "Czars" and for some reason FOX didn't stage a freakout over them.


Uh, yes they did. Fox news may not have, but it was a running joke of the Bush administration. It wasn't criticized as heavily, but criticism of it did exist.

Using your logic we shouldn't complain about the detainees in Guantanamo because FDR did basically the same thing in WWII and nobody complained about it then.

That's what part of the outrage is about. Obama more-or-less continuing failed Bush policies and trends. Jon Steward of the Daily Show, of all people, is calling Obama out on it.

"Czar" as it refers to Presidential appointments is a term entirely made up by the right-wing Mainstream Media. It originally referred only to advisers (i.e., people who had literally no lawmaking power at all). Since early 2009, the right-wing Mainstream Media have begun to refer to people who do have some regulatory power, and thus must be filibustered by Republicans approved by Congress as "Czars" (again, a term completely and utterly made up in whole cloth by the right-wing Mainstream Media). Because the right-wing Mainstream Media knows the term "Czar" has both autocratic and Russian (i.e., Communist) connotations (this despite the fact that Czars were literally exterminated by the Communists), this allows the right-wing Mainstream Media to claim that hiring an expert in a field relevant to current events to advise the President on important aspects of said topic is exactly the same thing as Stalin sending children to Gulag.

When somebody says mainstream media I tend to go find somebody else at the party who isn't an idiot. Because whatever other media they're into at that point, it's probably just as intellectually bankrupt.

hazarabs: Does everybody know that linguistically Tsar & Czar both derive from Ceasar?

The salad is named as such due to it's tendency to use military to violently crush dissent, representation, term-limits, and opposition of any kind.


I thought it was because they all smell more or less like catfood with Garlic.

Sunfish are even better, you just need to catch a lot more of them, and that means a lot of filleting.

Obviously, Obama is czarangelus. All those years of the most epic trolling led to electoral success, and now he's just too busy running things to show up. The "ban" was just part of Drew's hush money.
