Rushbo/Elton John!: One for the money

HOW ABOUT that million-dollar fee that Rush Limbaugh reportedly paid Elton John to sing at Rushbo's fourth wedding? Elton John? Who's married to another man? Paid by one of the leading homophobes of our century? The posh nuptials in the Palm Beach Breakers Hotel also served as a family reunion for Rush's well-fed conservative admirers: Karl Rove, Ralph Giuliani, Mary Matalin (and husband James Carville , who's a kooky fellow anyway) , Sean Hannity and - wonder of wonders - Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Rush and Guliani could have spent much of day reminisicing about their ex's. It's a not very exclusive version of the right-wing's supple family values. Oh, the bride? Kathryn Rogers (33) , whom Rushbo (59) met while going through his third divorce. Was there a pre-nuptial agreement?

#1 Rush Limbaugh is not one of the leading homophobes of the century, unless you consider opposition to gay marriage to be homophobia. But if that is the case, wouldn't that make President Obama our country's leading homophobe?

#2 Rush doesn't really promote "family values" on his show and he has never once claimed to live a perfect life. An evangelical, Christian conservative he is not. Instead, Rush usually focuses on issues like economics and national security.

"When a gay person turns his back to you," he once remarked, "it isn't an insult. It's an invitation."

“The difference between Los Angeles and yogurt is that yogurt comes with less fruit.”

This is unrelated but it speaks to Rush's credibility:

“Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. ... And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.”
