Some Items do not Require Further Comment

Ironic as it may seem, I was glad to see that BBC News felt that the current Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is worth covering.  CPAC provides us with a valuable reminder of Elmer Davis’ lesson from Thomas Jefferson (not to mention John Philpot Curran) that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.  Besides, any irony on my part will be surpassed by CPAC activities.  After all, a highlight of the event this year will be when Donald Rumsfeld is given the CPAC Defender of the Constitution Award.  In the immortal words of Eric Idle, “Say no more!”
