Via Matthew Yglesias, I see that Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich -- whom I have not allowed onto my radar screen, since he's got less chance of winning the nomination than Dick Gephardt -- thinks that we should have a federal Department of Peace.

I don't know...this seems to fall in the category of "Well-intentioned, but incredibly goofy" political ideas. Surely a candidate for President should look at his or her policy ideas and decide, "Is this something that Lisa Simpson would propose, if she were President?" If the answer's yes, then, well, maybe it should be left on the drawing board.
