At the conclusion of Rush Limbaugh's remarks today to those attending the CPAC convention, remarks that were originally to last 20 minutes but ended up lasting one hour 50 minutes -- remarks that were met with cheers, standing ovations, chants of "USA! USA!" and "Rush! Rush!" -- he was presented with CPAC's "Defender of the Constitution" award -- an original framed document signed by Benjamin Franklin.
The presenter said that Rush does for America what Benjamin Franklin did for our Founding Fathers. It was an award well deserved.
