    Rush to the Altar — And the Wedding Singer Is…
    By Doug Powers • June 5, 2010 04:37 PM **Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers

    Rush Limbaugh is getting married today to Kathryn Rogers, and the “wedding singer” is none other than Elton John:

    It’s wedding bells for Rush Limbaugh – for the fourth time.

    The conservative firebrand, 59, will exchange vows Saturday in Florida with Kathryn Rogers – a blond bombshell half his age – in a lavish Hawaiian-themed wedding bash headlined by none-other-than Sir Elton John.

    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.

    Some various blogs and news stories I’ve read so far mentioning Elton John being hired to perform at Rush’s wedding reception focus only on Rush’s staunch conservatism vs. Elton’s gay activism, comments about banning religion and liberal politics in general as being odd bedfellows — for lack of a better term. “Why would Elton John play at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding?” Simple: Capitalism:

    The Palm Beach Post reported the British superstar will pocket $1 million for playing the wedding reception at the posh Breakers Hotel.
    Without capitalism, Elton wouldn’t have performed at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding and Rush wouldn’t have been in the position to pay that much for the evening’s entertainment. Capitalism: It can bring people from all walks of life together.

    I congratulate Rush and Kathryn, and also tip my Detroit Tigers cap to Elton John for performing at the wedding, because he’s got to know he’s going to take some heat for this in his left-leaning, artsy, environmentalist, gay-activist circle of pals — most of whom would gladly accept a million bucks from George W. Bush to tap dance on a floor made of California Redwood and elephant tusk or take whacks at a piñata in the likeness of Harvey Milk that Roger Ailes stuffed with cash. But they’d never admit it.

    All economics is based on an intrinsic trade of value. Elton values performing at Rush's wedding at $1 million, and Rush is willing to pay $1 million to hear him play at his wedding.

    Sounds like a win/win to me.

    Mazeltov, Rush.

    I am shocked that there are four women in the US who would marry that.

    EJ needs the money, and Rush is really gonna feel that bill.

    Right.

    Elton does like to change up the lyrics now and then when he perfoms live. It will be interesting to see if he slips in a a sly lyric or two.

    Agreed. He shows he's a true capitalist. If you can? Do it.
