The Department of Nonviolence & Peace
Saturday, April 14, 2007
Tigerhawk notices a bill to establish a new Cabinet position and department by that name. The bill also requires the establishment of a "Peace Academy" on the lines of West Point.
I hope we can avoid enacting this foolishness, but as TH notes, the bill enjoys broad support in the Democratic House. As a consolation prize, then, I hope we can see it enacted quickly, so that George W. Bush can exercise his recess appointment powers once more.
I can hear him now.
"Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming America's first Secretary of Nonviolence and Peace: Mr. Donald Rumsfeld."
