Luckily things on the foreign policy front are pretty quiet these days, giving the State Department a chance to break ground on an unnecessary museum about themselves.

That is probably the only known photograph of John Kerry holding a shovel.

A State Department news release describes what The Diplomacy Center is:

The USDC (http://diplomacy.state.gov), a state-of-the-art museum and education center, will dedicate 40,000 square feet to bringing the story of American diplomacy to life.

The Center will invite visitors to explore the impact of diplomacy through interactive exhibits, compelling artifacts, hands-on education programs, diplomatic simulations, and the expertise of foreign affairs specialists. Education will be at the core of the Center’s work, drawing on the experiences of our diplomats through case studies and as the basis for interactive simulations.

People will be lining up for those “diplomatic simulations.”

Heh.
