From Dennis Kucinich's suggestion of a Dept. of Peace to Obama's Nobel prize announcement, Peace is back again.

Peace...It's the new black.

Regardless of the noise goons on the right who will be telling us in so many ways in the coming days why Barack Obama doesn't deserve this honor, I give you this from Albert Nobel's will...

"to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

By those standards, he's as good a choice as any. Now he just needs to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

I still think, not unlike a lotta denizens of Left Blogsylvania, that he got this primarily for not being Bush. But it sure will be fun witnessing the explosion of wingnuts' heads over this...
