White House Names Asian Carp Czar (Not a joke!)
http://blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/fish/asian-carp-czar-named/ ^

Posted on 09/09/2010 10:05:24 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

We have drug czars, energy czars, actual Russian czars (well, we used to), and -- perhaps a mark that we maybe need a nomenclature czar -- we now have an Asian carp czar.

John Goss will oversee the near $80 million federal response to the Asian carp, a particularly invasive species that is threatening the Great Lakes.

So should I expect them to come knocking on my door to inspect my backyard pond?

Are they going to fine me if there's too much algae, or if my shebunkins aren't looking happy enough?

Oh I know. The Asian carp is a threat to our fishing industry..no joke. But you have to admit..Obama seems to take this ‘threat’ more seriously than the drug war in Mexico spilling over our borders or terrorism on our own shores. Do we have an Islamic terrorism czar yet? This whole thing makes Obama look even more foolish than he already does....LOL!

Obama look even more foolish

More foolish he looks the lower his numbers.

When one is making himself look foolish just get out of his way.
