Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld will receive the "Defender of the Constitution" award at CPAC this year.TPM
The award will be presented by David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC, and right-wing talk show host Brad O'Leary, who recently wrote a book called America's War On Christmas, because he said President Obama "declared that America is not a Christian nation."
Previous recipients of the award include Former Attorney General John Ashcroft, who got it in 2010, and Rush Limbaugh, who was honored in 2009.
This is the same Rumsfeld who first authorized torture. Defender of the Constitution my ass.
