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?
