WHY would ANYBODY take the job of War Czar?
I've been pondering this for two days now. Anyone who doesn't realize Shrub is just looking for somebody to blame any failures on is an idiot! I understand the job was offered to quite a few people and they all said NO. Why in the world did this Lite guy say yes? Damn, even the media is saying we already have a Commander in Chief, so why do we need a war czar?

3. Yep, seeing as he is still "active duty", I have no doubt you are
right. It is like the National Guard 'volunteered' to go to Iraq AND then have their tour extended.

2. Simple
The severance package is unbeatable. If you become a martyr, God will give you 70 virgins.

6. I'd have done it for half what they're paying him.
How hard can it be to forward a couple hundred emails a day?

10. Doesn't the mere idea of having a war czar sound a little, um, imperalistic?

12. might be a fascist
might have been forced into it

15. Definitions of czar
*a male monarch or emperor (especially of Russia prior to 1917)

*Title of the ruler of Russia. Taken from the word Caesar, which means emperor.

*A king or emperor, especially one of the former emperors of Russia.

Why the hell does the U.S. Commander in Chief need a CZAR??? :wtf:
