Well, there’s many reasons…but here’s a good one from Tom Woods:
If you’re like me, you spend a lot of time concerned — weeping, even — that one of the great men ever to serve in American government, Donald Rumsfeld, continues to go unrecognized. At last this injustice is being rectified. As you can see from the schedule (look at 4:00pm on February 10), Rumsfeld will receive the Defender of the Constitution award at CPAC this year. Greatness cannot be overlooked forever.
