They don't make czars like they used to

War czar Gen. Douglas Lute said in an interview that the US should consider reinstituting the draft.

Today the Pentagon 'sharply rejected' that and said that 'no consideration' was being given.

I'm confused, what is a czar for, to be bitch-slapped by some Pentagon spokesman, or to run things? Maybe it's a tsar that runs things like good old Ivan the Terrible, while a czar is some bullshit position that everyone laughs at. Come to think of it, kind of like Barry McCaffrey was a 'drug czar'.
