Looks like El Rushbo is tying the knot again. Good for him....
It's wedding bells for Rush Limbaugh – for the fourth time.
The conservative firebrand, 59, exchanged vows with Kathryn Rogers – a blond bombshell half his age – in a lavish Hawaiian-themed wedding bash headlined by none-other-than Sir Elton John Saturday in Florida.
It's an odd pairing considering El Rushbo's history of anti-gay commentary on his conservative radio show and the openly gay "Tiny Dancer" singer's longtime commitment to gay rights.
Of course you would expect the media to miss entirely how it came to be that Elton John played at Rush's wedding.....sheer greed. Or as I like to call it...capitalism.
First, Lauren Johnston of the NYDailyNews claims that Rush is anti-gay. To my knowledge, and I've been a listener for about 20 years, Rush has never said anything against being gay specifically. He rails regularly against the liberal, political positions and victim mentality of many gays, both of which are fair game but, it's never about being gay.
The other point is that Elton John, despite what he would claim, is above all else, a capitalist. Rush wanted Elton John, evidently a fav of Kathryn's, to perform at the reception more than he wanted the $million it cost to make it happen. And Elton wanted the $million payday more than he cared about Rush's political opinions toward the gay agenda.
See, the magic of unfettered capitalism brought two diametrically opposed personalities together for mutual benefit. How cool would it be if the whole world worked like that?
There is an irony alert here though: Rush likes to talk about the sanctity of marriage and all that, yet he's getting married for the fourth time. I always say, nobody has made a bigger mockery of marriage than us straight people. How could gays do any worse? Just sayin'.
