Elton John and Rush Limbaugh may seem like an unlikely pair to be found at the same event, but perhaps a wedding is as good a place as any to put politics aside.
As Rush Limbaugh, an outspoken conservative commentator, tied the knot for the fourth time in Palm Beach on Saturday, Elton John was on hand to help celebrate the occasion with a performance.
Although there are reports that Sir Elton was paid $1 million for the appearance, a representative for the singer would only confirm that he did indeed perform at Limbaugh’s wedding.
The 59-year-old Limbaugh married Kathryn Rogers, 33, whom he met six years ago during his third divorce, according to People.

Sad, so so sad. Come on Elton you could not have been that hard up for money, could you? Yeah, I guess so. Instead of selling yourself out to Rush, you should have tried putting out some "GOOD" music. You know like, Yellow Brick Road. Since then your music has been nothing but boring. I've been a fan since the 70's but it ended the day of the wedding, shame on you!
Leave it to a bunch of "tolerant" liberals to personally attack someone......Rush is not a bigot for believing as he does, nor does he dislike Elton for his beliefs. Maybe they are both bigger people than all of you who are sniping about this.
Maybe Elton sang there as Rush does his swan song before moving to Costa Rica for "real" health care!
Unlike most of you, Elton John has proved, once again, that he is not biased and will perform for anyone and with anyone. Remember Eminem? The man obviously does what he wants and probably could care less what anyone thinks about it. So, take your hurt gay pride and save it for another day.
I understand how the gays on here fell. I would never associate with gays, for any amount of money.
Four marriages. Hmmm, yeah, that's real conservative values for ya. I think Elton John was a good choice.
Don't bother saying you'll be donating the money now, Elton. It's got stank all over it.
You should have had Rush write the check directly to charity or politely decline. They way you did this makes you look cheap and greedy. Is Ann Coulter's wedding next? Dr. Laura's?
Rush and people like him spend their whole lives publicly destroying people and encouraging their followers to do the same.
As a gay man with status and influence you could have and should have handled this entirely differently. Keep your blood money, Elton, and buy yourself some new glasses.
Oh the irony, your trying to destroy Rush the same way you claim he tries to destroy others.
I may not agree with his stance on ANY social issues, and I'm pretty sure Elton John doesn't either, but not everyone and everything has to be a political agenda item. Sometimes there's just life and love and songs and people. Elton John has no responsibility to use his clout and talent to further some agenda.
You said Rush and people like him (Americans?) spend their whole lives publicly destroying people? Really Janie? Name just one. That's what I thought. Perhaps you could unplug the video game and tune in Rush's show on that thing the music comes out of. Just remember, before you present an argument, do some actual research and try to come somewhere near the truth. ............. Now that's funny. A liberal would never go near the truth. That is why they are petrified of even listening. Very, very funny.
Did you hear that Rush will be running for president (with a huge salary cut) with Sara Palin as VP and Ann Coulter handling all foreign policy. Got my vote. Lets roll.
Rule number 1.....No Puftas allowed.
All three of them stink.
The Gold Digger
The Evil Blowhard
and the Sell Out
Elton can write a new song about them but I wonder if anyone would buy his crap now.
Why does everyone feel the need to question the motives of everyone involved in this story? So what if Rush ( & his wife) enjoy Elton John's music? Does being a conservative mean that you can't appreciate the talent of someone who is gay? I hope not – theaters across the country would be nearly empty! And why is Elton a sell-out for performing at this wedding – paid or not? I have many friends whose politics or other opinions I don't completely agree with, but that doesn't mean that I can't respect them or love them for who they are. Why is it that those who yell the loudest for tolerance are the least tolerant of other peoples opinions?
Because Rush and people like him are exactly why gays, minorities, and women face difficulties living in this country.
WOW K., what an amazing chain of pure logic. Why, you have elevated Rush to higher levels. Thank you. You said Rush was why gays, minorities and women face difficulties living in this country. Silly me, I always thought it was just life. Oh, you left out everyone else who also has difficulties. Oversite? Yea. Following your 'thinking', Rush must have changed his name to Rushky and moved to Russia to do the same things there. And then he changed his name to Rushpha and moved to Afghanistan then Iraq, then Iran and so on because it seems everywhere on our planet people have always had 'difficulties' living. Rush is awesome and must be very, very, very old to have done all this. But do not despair because change is coming from your hero, Hussain Obama. He will feed you, clothe you, tell you where you can work, what you can eat, who not to talk to, what not to listen to and change your diapers. You will be able to sit like a lump on your sofa bought for you by your neighbors and you will only have to move to go vote for dems. So, put on that happy face. By the way, why is it that liberals always seem to be tense, wringing the hands, hate-filled and generally not a very happy lot as evidenced by all these comments? Oh, I forgot, Rush. He is awesome isn't he? Dittos.
GOOD FOR BOTH OF THEM!!!! ... IS THERE NEVER A TIME TO PUT STUPID POLITICS ASIDE?? Good for Rush Limbaugh for seeing the talent and perseverance of Sir Elton Joh. And bravo for Elton for having the cahunas to show up and perform! (and get paid no less, which will always go to his charities..he's more famous for his charities now than anything else). He's not selling out the gay community you idiots... Remember when he teamed up with Eminem after he gay bashed? It's called being the bigger person! Congrats to both of them!
Here's hoping Elton John donates the $1 million to a cause that would make Rush cringe!
Not everything has to be a political statement. I can't believe how everyone gripes about how partisonship is dividing this country and yet they extend their political agendas wherever they can squeeze it in. No one is ever going to sway the "other side" to believe what they do, nor are they likely to get so much power as to squelch them, so why aren't they trying harder to get along with them?
It's amazing how much hate there is being posted here from all of you peace, love and diversity types. Oh I forgot, tolerance of other people and their opinions is only a weapon you use against the right; it's not anthing you actually believe.
Well said and so very true. Bravo.
Oh this is just great! The sound of liberal weenies hammering their keyboards is positively deafening. It's all tolerance and anything goes until something like this happens, and then the venom really spews. What a laughable bunch of hypocrites.
Just another pub stunt, rush must have another book coming out, sheesh, trash media/right wing propaganda pays well, 1 mil is nothing to rush, spills that much crossing the street to the bank. Elton might be tryna make comeback too, whatever.
i wonder how long before they divorce and how much is it going to cost him? will elton be invited to sing during the divorce?
What a sell-out. Does the drive for more and more money justify him playing at the wedding of a slob who represents everything the singer supposedly opposes? Pathetic.
I wonder what songs Elton played. I wonder if Rush found any of them offensive? :-)
Best wishes on your repeat wedding day Rush. Go forth and multiply .. if you can.
Elton John - a right-wing nut cluster? Who'da thunk it! No, I've got a better idea about who should have sung at Gush Blimpaugh's wedding - that girl who sang "A Morning After" as the SS. Poseidon sank.
The old adage "Takes one to know one" is true. The Liberal/Progressive mantra for over a decade has been calling conservatives "haters". Oooh, you are all name callers.
The comments here are full of nothing but hate yet you dare use the word hypocrite.
Get a clue, conservatives don't hate you, they just disagree with you.
Rush...a true conservative...an addict on his fourth marriage with a flaming singer singing at his wedding...
the beauty of American hypocrisy
Good God in Heaven! How could any self respecting woman marry that noisy, loathsome, fat little troll? Oh my bad; clearly she can't be terribly self respecting... amazing what humans will endure for a few creature comforts and a full wallet. I wish the newlywed a happy trip to the divorce courts, in say about six months. Harsh? Oh yeah, and well deserved.
Well, Elton John has been producing excellently produced and performed, but completely uninteresting and unimaginative, music for the past 75% of his carreer. He sold out a long time ago if that's what one wants to call it. Producing for anyone who's willing to pay, including somebody who would probably put him in a mental hospital to "cure him" if he had the chance.
When I saw this story I felt sick. Then, i was in denial. Then, I thought of the silver lining: perhaps Sir John is contributing the money from this gig to an extremely liberal cause!
Or, perhaps he was hoping that his very appearance with Limbaugh would be enough "bad publicity" for Rush, that his blind followers will turn on him.
I guess even a bigot's money is green, eh?
I agree with Ed, these are scary times.
The wife wanted ELTON to perform, not Rush!
This is the singer who insulted Jesus Christ this year, there is nothing beneath him.
Steve – I am with you.
Oh please...Elton took the money and is probably donating the entire thing to some charity that Rush hates or heaven forbib...the Democratic Party
We Oregoninans think alike! I agree totally.
This just in... Hell freezes over as pigs fly and dubya has a coherent thought. These are scary times, indeed.
(and do humanity a favor)
I hope Rush's new wife has enough sense to cut his throat in his sleep.
The true liberal always comes out when emotions rise due to their total lack of ability to debate issues, as usual. You indeed represent the average liberal. Unfortunately, average is called average for a reason. Bless your heart.
It's not a political issue, it's a human rights issue. There is nothing worse than a self loathing gay. I have lost all respect for this man.
I flushed all good memories I had with Elton John's music. Take it ELTON-RUSH:
And I feel like a bullet in the gun of Robert Ford / I'm low as a paid assassin is / You know I'm cold as a hired sword / I'm so ashamed, ...
As they say, on both these people..people will do and say anything for the highest bidder..with no moral obligation
Does anyone REALLY care about this? What could possibly be the big deal from any angle? Was anyone hurt? Did nations crumble? Does anyone know the full story? Is it even true? Surely there is another subject worth all the venom and anger....But all this fuss about someone performing at a wedding? Really, folks...let's put this to bed.
Funny thing how the name callers don't realize how their bigotry is so glaring. Too busy thinking it's only evident in the people they disagree with. Most of these comments look petty & jealous.
Most of what these people are saying is just show for the public. Rich people have always stuck together. They have something in common: they all live off the rest of us.
If they 'stick' together at all, it would be because there are always lazy, sorry, cheezy, whackos trying to get their neighbors to pay for their stuff. You know the type, LIBERALS who punish success and want all people to be the same. Here is a news flash for you: people are not all the same. Wow, what a concept.
Ah yes, the common thought of the liberal: If someone has more money than them, that person must have cheated, stole or just simply been more lucky than everyone else. No one who has been successful in life could have possibly worked harder or been smarter than average. Nor could they have charged a fair price for the good or service that they provide. But, since they have been successful, it is up to the Socialists to redistribute their wealth to you.....
Rush is like every other conservative, he has one set of rules for politics and another set of rules for himself. The gay Elton John is an excellent choice for a wedding and at $1M is cheap for Rush Limbaugh. Everyone is a liberal in their personal life in that they demand choice in all things that affect them. No one allows another to tell them how to think and what to do and the ones who are most intent on telling others are also most intent on keeping their own freedom.
We put these people on the pedestal and in reality they are just talented greedy people jut like everybody else.
Well Sir Elton: I called all my friends who called all their friends and we agreed to not only NEVER to support you or buy your albums again, but we are going to have a destroy "Elton John music" evening. Are you that desperate for money that you would play at this slimebag's so-called wedding. You are a loser. By the way, we are all from the old country.
Now that's funny no matter who you are. How dare ANYONE step outside the lockstep. ha ha ha ha Elton just called me and he is just so depressed and sad because you are mad at him. Just for that, he is going straight and buying a plaid suit. Oh, goodbye.
You are from the old country? Would that be the Twilight Years rest home? Well, you still have Barry Manilow.
What a sell-out. For someone who despises Rush and is gay, Elton got bought for $1M.
The religious right-wing's frequent mouthpiece has now gone down the aisle and promised in front of God to stay married "until death do us part" for the fourth time. He obviously didn't keep his word to God THREE times, but blatant HYPOCRISY is certainly nothing new for the "family values" people..
To me this looks worse on Rush, to talk of how Gays getting marriage would ruin it and cause more divorces. Yet he has a Gay man singing at his 4th wedding. Think about it. Rush is the one that looks bed not Elton."
You forgot the most important part–a gay man MARRIED to another gay man!
I have to admit I am a gay man and I have been disappointed time and time again as I read through these messages. It was very hurtful to actually see people who were supposed to be supporting legislation like:
Don't ask don't tell
Right for unions or marriages between gay couples
I find it quite ironic that this party is up in arms over Illegal Immigration and none of the legislation that was promised by the Left during this election has been passed or even seriously discussed. It was more than hurtful to read posts against Rush at the expense of all gay men and women.
It is absolutely no surprise that none of this legislation has made any headway after reading how the new Liberals treat gay people.
Sad. To be angry at Rush is one thing, but to incite hate against a man that has further gay rights and AIDS research and funding was truly devastating to read. Thanks for tricking the entire gay community into having us give your politicians our votes while treating us worse and saying more hateful things than any Republican. Not one post has mentioned bashing Elton John or Rush for having him perform from a Republican. What an eye opener!
And I'll bet Sir Elton is sitting back somewhere, sipping on a martini, counting those hundred dollar bills with his middle finger stuck in the air at all you people! You all make yourselves look like idiots! While Elton is laughing all the way to the bank, your actually pist that he made a million bucks. Ask yourself, how would you feel if he made this money from sleeping with a woman! Sorry if that idea makes any of you puke.
i wonder what your old friend john lennon would think? shake his head and walk away in disappointment i imagine. then throw a few dollars your way and say "sorry man..didnt know you needed it so bad."
I am assuming he would think that his head was made of cherries, and that those glasses were actually little tiny frozen pizzas, that were about to attack his purple army of love.
It is a side effect of way too much acid. Oh and then he would say, "I am broke Elton, can you spare me a few bills for a little blow and some trip"
I just want to say that just because someone is against gay marriage doesn't mean they hate gays. I personally support gay marriage for sure, however I have friends who do not support gay marriage; yet they still hang out with and tolerate their gay peers no problem. They just favor tradition.
Too funny, elton will do anything for money.
this has probably already been said in t his 8276343 comment chain, but i'm not sure what i'm more stupified by– 1) he asked elton john to play, or 2) that elton john actually played, or 3) rush got married yet again and/or to 4) someone pretty much half his age... God Save The Queen
I just can't believe that Sir Elton would sing at Rush's wedding regardless of the money. I guess Hell froze over and Pigs can fly and get married too. Money talks i guess.
Elton has recently crawled back into the closet. He had become a Republican operative. He is a possible running mate for Palin in 2012. You guys did not receive the AP wire that he found Christ and was denouncing his past lifestyle as a gay man.
Just look at his picture. It is obvious all of you have the right to be angry at Elton John. Afterall, look at that picture. He has NEVER done a single thing to further gay rights. I know all of you posting have though. That picture was obviously a straight man trying to make money by "being" gay.
He is back in the closet and why he chose to do the gig. It also is his profession and he claimed he would give these types of gigs and the money to charity. But the hell with that. Lets get him Demtards!! Death to our won.
That is a nice 2012 Campaign Slogan: Death to our own!! The new party of hate and misery!
There is hope ,, like all those here defiending rush here,, I too ,was once a rush butt boy , however i saw the light , this is not a party (gop) i want to be at ever again.
And oddly enough... We have just received confirmation that hell has frozen over.
till death due you part, for the fourth time Rush. Wish you bliss. Lord, I could never marry him, he would need more than a paper bag over his head.
Really, how is this getting so much media attention?? At the end of the day, Sir Elton is an entertainer and has every right to perform without controversy. Performing does not equal endorsement. It's really no ones business why he accepted...maybe he leans right on some issues...maybe he just needs the paycheck..who knows...who cares? I would venture to say that the ones who "really" care tend to be the hyper judgemental....someone like Joy Behar & other so called news commentators who earn their living by their enticing division.
reggie is not married.
if your not married in this country, then it doesn't count.
reggie is broke and he's a money hound.
all liberals will drop their convictions for money.
just look at obama and his lies.
Ok it was really funny for a while because it was all leftist extremists but then you showed up.
They are no better on the right side of the aisle either. Well maybe better than these nut jobs but let the Left dig their own graves. No need to induce some meaningless argument like "Obama" into all this great Liberal hate.
Let them keep going!! It is awesome. I have all these posts and will be putting together a little Youtube video around election time of all the great work liberals do on the behalf of the gay community. Like all the slurs on this board and throwing ANY gay person under the bus for being a bigger man and making a point with true kindness and love. Elton and Rush should be praised for showing us that we should put many things above politics but the left is hellbent on just gay bashing and trashing one of their own. It is awesome.
So, Steve, you're saying that anyone who has been legally married in another country is NOT legally married in the US? Clearly you don't know what you're talking about.
These comments are hilarious. C'mon folks: you've all been to weddings... do you imagine that the wedding singer's politics are USUALLY the same as the groom's?
I just don't believe it.
wow!i just lost a bunch of respect for elton john!1 million bucks to him is like 10$ is to everybody else.
and this young girl he married,must be stupid,blind,and money hungry to marry rush's fat a$$!
Age 15? Great vocabulary joherotten. Another sterling example of the power of the public education system. Pardon me, it will be another sterling example when you graduate high school.
I am doing a report for school. I need some factual arguments that can allow me to make the point that Sarah Palin is a bad example for women. If some of you have any information this thread seems like a good place to maybe get some ideas.
Sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy as the leftist nut jobs entertain us for the next three days foaming from every orifice!
She married Rush for the money. Elton did it for the money. Guess Rush only has people in life that want to his money. What sensible woman would marry Rush? As much as Rush talks about beautiful women, he sure didn't marry one. She' a hard looking 33; she looks like a woman in her mid 40's. Has Elton John ever listened to Limbaugh or met him? What was he thinking? I can't even stomach listening to Elton John anymore. Elton, you have lost a fan.
You know, folks, a lot of people don't have a hard time putting politics aside when it comes to living life. Just because someone has a diffferent political philosophy doesn't mean you can't interact with them socially, work for them, or hire them. For those of you deriding Elton John for "selling out" or Limbaugh for "going against his beliefs" I suggest that it would be nice if you could perhaps follow Elton's and Rush's lead and put life before politics.
We do not want to understand and "change" as we cry during elections. We really just want to be angry and hate people. Quit introducing logic and sensibility. Those things are boring. We need death, hate, and anger to have meaning in our lives as Liberals. Obvious by the many posts. If you do not believe just read all of the truly embarrassing posts that are from Liberals who are against the death penalty but would be happy if Rush had a heart attack or they could do the killing themselves. They are for human rights, unless it is the rights of someone they disagree with. And of course the general hypocrisy of preaching tolerant and be open minded yet spew the most venomous attacks 100 times worse than ANYTHING RUSH has ever said and not to mention blatant lies.
You are taking the fun out of the anger!
I can see where people would be confused, but I see this as a win. Music brings people together. Universally. Here you have an extreme right-wing nutjob paying a very openly married, gay man to perform at his wedding. If this doesn't prove that music brings the masses together, I don't know what does. Yes, money talks, but Shrimbaugh didn't have to choose Elton John to perform, yet he did. And, yay for Elton John for making big bucks off Rush.
Yes, the beauty of music. I couldn't agree more.
wow that fat pig found a woman? obviously she has no self respect
Upset because you didn't find one?
Did he sing his famous song , "Don't Let Your Son Go Down On Me"?
Ha, that's cute. Reg and Rush are both great entertainers and I like both of them. I love that Reggie performed at Rush's wedding. However, Reg needs to ditch those barnacle covered sunglasses and the jumbo wind chime earring - I know he's worn much worse in the past, but, C'mon Elty, you can do better than that! :) By the way, I have NEVER heard Rush say anything against gays. Don't know where people are getting that from - probably their own bias against his "conservatism."
Yes, conservatives are by definition hateful bigots and liberals are by definition anti-American, haha. Geez, sometimes I wonder how we've made ever made it this far. We need some new memes.
-pot smoking conservative environmentalist deadhead hawk drummer/writer/chemist/conservationist. ;-)
OMG.........shocking! Someone married that fat pig?
Are you referring to Rush Limbaugh and his new wife or Elton John and David Furnish? Either way, you're mean.
For all of you people who say "Rush is just an entertainer"...yes, he is, but he incites hate and there are just WAAAAYYYY too many ignorant idiots out there who believe the garbage he spews. THAT'S the problem.
what a useless bunch of uninformed commentators. Elton had said for years that he will play for anyone, anywhere, if they donate $1 million to his aids foundation. THAT's sticking up for your principles. He believes in his charity. He does not judge the request. While I am not an admirer of Mr. Limbaugh he certainly knows how to grab attention.
Please don't obstruct all the delicious leftist hate with facts!!!
Come on Mike!!! Why let a little bit of truth not allow us to gay bash, bash a newlywed, and offer death threats?
Way to ruin the party man!
YES , Sarah Palin was at the wedding , After all it was rush drooling over Sarahs husband on his show once, Hmm maybe Todd Palin will be wife # 5
Who cares about Elton John or Limbaugh. Limbaugh is a nut case that hasn't been locked up. But he has a lot of nut cases that follow him.
My feelings for rush are similar to what my former boss would tell me, "I like Rush Limbaugh as much as I like anal worts". But this still doesn't change the fact that most weddings in the US are for the woman, not the man. Thus, I would have to assume that the choice of music was not that of the stinky old farrrt rush, but was the bride's demand. We also have to realize that rush is loving the controversy on this and will have some material to blather about for a couple of weeks. Elton John will also get some exposure with conservatives. Who knows, maybe some of those Dito Heads might think that it's OK for somebody to be gay after all.
It's really their business, but I do have to say I am quite stunned. You'd never think they would be able to put up with each other, especially when dealing with marriage.
That is because you are to naive to think for yourself and realize that entertainment is just that..
I thought people would actually commend him, but I guess there is no winning when everyone is full of anger and hate on the left. And Rush is the bad guy.......BRILLIANT!!!
'Because...' Perhaps the "It's really their business" eluded your "anger and hate" for the "left." You don't even know if I am from the "left." Nothing I said points to what I support. You, sir, are full of negativity. I suggest you get some air and take it all with a grain of salt.
Sell out...that's all there is to it!
This $1,000,000 is his 30 pieces that Judas got!
It's not about the rest of us casting the first stone. None of us is without sin, but 4 marriages is a little extreme and cheating on your wife is also. It's not that Rush, Beck, Hannity and Fox do not have a right to speak, but just listen to their shows and you will hear them shouting over their guests, interupting and just rude so that you can not hear the other side.
John Edwards would love your post and so would Clinton or are those ok and morale men????
I think it was a jolly fitting occasion for Elton to play for the Gay Old Party.
I thought Liberals were for Gay Rights however I keep see gay bashing from the left.
Anyone that can enlighten me on this strange situation I am all ears..or eyes?
The Gay Old Party.....that is yet another nice Liberal View!! Good Job Folks. Keep up the hate!
You are now turning on your own base. Wow times have gotten tough for Liberals I guess. Seems odd when you own every branch of government. This is what is meant by "lack of leadership"
Wow, this is very disappointing news. The first concert I went to was Elton John in 1971 in Baltimore. I've never been a fan of the outfits, but always loved the music. I thought his behavior toward Tina Turner during the Divas 99 rehearals was like something a child would do, and thought it showed poor judgement on his part. But that was nothing compared to this.
Today I am throwing out all of my Elton John CD's and will never listen to him again. I can't even express how blown away I am by this. This kind of reminds me of the Cat Stevens conversion to Islam and beng supportive of the 911 terrorists.
When I think of Rush Limbaugh, I can only imagine him one way, laying on a platter on a table with an apple in his mouth. I've always thought of him that way, just a pig with a foul odor coming from his mouth, and probably other parts of his body as well. Rich little piggy goes to market, rich little piggy gets married again.
I guess it's true, everyone has their price.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh the life of a hypocrite,,so much for pursuit of the truth lol
Not one of these stupid posts make a damn bit of sense. Who cares if Elton John sings at Rush Limbaugh's wedding? All you hypocrites talking about "I will never buy another Elton CD" or "Rush is such a bigoted hypocrite". It is you people who should make Elton and Rush sick. What a bunch of slack jaws you all are. It just goes to show that Rush and Elton may disagree vehemently on other matters but when something nice like a marriage happens they can put all that aside.
go away and sin no more..................
You forget that a Liberals only way to resolve a problem is through HATE but try and reverse that onto everyone else.
I honestly do not think some of them even understand what they are doing because of their egos and lack of intelligence.
Well said, Mike.
That's a shame, I used to like Elton John. Sad to see he's just a fat old queen who would do anything for an Oxycotin.
Why are Liberals now attacking gays with racial slurs yet you are venting about Rush? I have seen it a million times with similar sentiments. You are supposed to support gays not bash them with "fat old queen" hurtful speech? Right? No?
I can just tell you it is very upsetting and hurtful to read and see all these views bashing Elton John and all the slurs being thrown out by Dems..yet they are talking about Rush!! Think and you shall be free!
We'll see how long this lasts. Hopefully, she will realize what a pig he is and have the marriage annulled. If she agrees with him and his ratings, they deserve each other. It just amazes me that no article can be commented on without bringing up Obama.
That is odd you can't imagine any story without mention of Obama because you just mentioned Obama!!
Do you guys actually believe in each other and actually believe you are somehow intelligent.
Seriously, that had to be something written by a person with an I.Q. of 70. YOU JUST MENTIONED IT YOU RETARD AND YOU WONDER WHY IT IS THEN BROUGHT UP. Seriously..........Oh you guys are failing so badly and are so miserable, mean and angry.
How does it feel to be more radical than Birthers?
Travis Y (1:22 pm post) – you speak the absolute truth. I wish everyone could see Rush and his cronies exactly as you see them.
Too bad a suicide bomber didn't make it to the reception and successfully kill them all.
There are some nice liberal viewpoints!! Boy I am surprised your party's president now has a rating in the upper 30's.
Fact is: You guys are way scarier than any gun loving RedNeck.
No seriously. The fact that you guys can't even handle a Radio Show Host is downright amazing!!!! Boy you guys are awesome for the party!!
LOL!!!! Obama would be proud and thank each of you for losing more voters with each venomous hypocritical statement!
Change we can believe in...right..he meant change..where we can just kill everyone with bombs. He is Muslim...maybe you are right!
i am not a sinner. so give me the stone and i will cast it. no problem.
Do you mean someone actually married that idiot!!
Besides Rush Limbaugh who else should not speak or have an opinion?
We all know Beck, Palin, Hannity, and anyone at Fox should be killed or censored? Right Dems?
Who else? What about poor people that are not educated? Should we tell them to shut up too? I am sure some of them spew hate as well?
At least a Republican believes in your right to come here and bash a man and his new wife. The amount of hypocrisy is amazing on the left?
It is just a simple result of you guys realizing Obama is not the second coming of Christ!! You are angry that you have all branches of government and you are failing miserably. ....SO THE ANSWER is to silence anyone that questions the times and authority? Nice logic you freaks!
Failing miserably? Stock market is up 30% since Obama became president after Bush left it PLUMMETING. Respect for the U.S. from our allies is up since Bush left. We haven't started any wars for false reasons. And we've killed the #3 al-Qaeda man while Obama has increased the effort to avenge 9/11 after Bush said he wasn't that concerned about bin Laden.
You should really learn how to employ punctuation marks more effectively. When you can't construct sentences properly, you come off as an uneducated fool.
Uneducated fools are the ones who are unable to supply any FACTS against an argument and try to switch subjects.
sentences properly, you come off
Nice structure Chip!! Way to make your point! Oh brother.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road... Elton is a complete sell-out and we will not be purchasing his records or concert tickets again.
It is ok because I will be buying his records from now on and I never purchased them in the past. We cancel out :P Aint freedom great!
Marriage #4 for just another hypocrite conservative claiming to support family values and the Bible.
What will people do for money?
Rush Limbaugh is the industry of making money and making gullible weak souled people angry over every little thing he says. You guys that hate him are the very people that put him on the pedestal yet you hate his message. Strange that if you hate it so much all you do is post messages that give more credence to him and his audience.
What part of: If you do not like it turn it off or do not listen do you not understand???
Man that used to be a thing you said to a Republican Whackjob and unbelievably it is now the Dems screaming censorship, FCC fines, and "if I don't like it then it should not exist" Truly scary that some of you actually think you are open minded. LOL LOL LOL>..if by open minded you mean bashing anything you disagree with.
Truly pathetic. He (Elton) has become a grotesque caricature. He really worhsips money this much to stoop to this?
You mean stoop so low to as to do what he does for a career. I guess he should start to screen everyone entering his shows from now on and make sure they agree with everything he believes.
You are right...that is what America is all about. Do you Crazy Crazy Liberals listen to yourself???
Watch this...tell me what you think of Sarah Palin. Do you have anything better to do then just absolutely HATE EVERYONE and everything that disagrees with your ideals.
I don't remember Rush ever saying that he's "anti-gay." Just because someone is conservative that doesn't mean that they have a problem with gays. Sheesh, people, quit doing whatever your TV tells you and actually take a look around once in a while.
How about this? "When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it's an invitation."
Well, one thing's for sure, I will never buy Elton John's music again.
Another that is for sure: He and his $400 million don't give a sh!t!!
I guess some people will do anything for money and I don't just mean John, would you marry a pig, no matter how rich it was?
rush got married and elton began to sing...just like one of those cookoo clocks.
Who cares? A has been singing for a never was!
I shouldn't be surprised by all the bigoted remarks from the far left progressive radicals here. you guys are just disgusting bec Elton sang at Rush's wedding. Get a life! or better yet...get a lobatomy (sp?) as all you do is spew hate and bigotry. You're foaming at the mouth–you radical left losers are so pathetic!
Most Libs are all foam and no substance.
Republican party is not made by Rush Limbaugh. There are thousands of Republicans but they have shown their opinions as a respectful public speaker. Here we are dealing with a guy who can spark violent campaign if not stopped. If you are not agreeing with this, you do not know enough. People who have written negative comments here are against extremist political views of Rush. This is not even the issue of Republicans Vs. Democrat OR Conservative Vs. Liberal.
Be reasonable Don't be judgemental.
Elton is an amazing musican, Rush is an incredible talk show host. Everyone who is dissing them here is a lousy human being.
Rush is not anti-gay or racist. No lying hate-filled Obama-lib-bot can prove either claim without lying.
Hopefully, Sir Elton John will donate the money (in Rush's name) to a charity or 'social cause' which Rush dispises.
I'LL BET ELTON GIVES ALL THE MONEY TO CHARITY.
So, Rush paid Elton John a cool million to sing at his wedding. What was the pricetag required to have a woman – any woman – marry him? Heck, I wouldn't sleep with him for all the tea in China, or all the money in Rush's bank account, let alone marry that piece of slime. And I imagine most, if not all, self-respecting women would feel the exact same way!
Good for Elton. He seems smart enough to understand that intelligent people may have an honest and opposing sense of values. So Rush doesn't believe in gay marriage. Big deal. At "least" half of other Americans agree with him. For those that believe in gay marriage....great. Music transcends ideology.
Boy, #4. How long will this marriage last? You can be sure she is marrying him for his looks and charm and not his great wealth? Does he really think he could catch a decent looking gal who is much younger than him, if he were not so rich? What a hate filled looser.
I don't know why anyone would be surprised; two drag queen drug addicts celebrating a sham marriage. My God what must the T-Party T-tards think of their great white leader associating with a gay man. Oh I forgot the “tards” only condemn those who don’t “join them.”
Please, don't join. Our gene pool is stable.
Statement issued by Elton after playing in Morocco a week or so back:
"I have always believed that music inhabits a world set apart from politics, religious differences or prejudice of any kind.
"Throughout my career I have made a point of playing concerts in challenging places, such as the USSR and Northern Ireland in the 1970s, Israel in the 1990s and very recently Morocco. Every concert was an enjoyable event for us all and, as I found in Morocco just this last Wednesday, it is always a great experience playing to a new audience in a new country, getting a wonderful warm reception, and hearing the 30,000-strong audience singing along to lyrics that are not in their native tongue.
"Music is, and always will be, a universal language, free from boundaries. It can and does inspire unity and builds bridges between people, and I will continue to play concerts anywhere in the world where I can encourage that unity."
I agree. Entertainment should be about entertainment, not politics. There are entertainers I wont watch or listen to anymore because of some of their comments. Let the politicians fight it out. . Entertainers, please just entertain us.
You all wonder why OUR country is so divided. Take a minute to read these comments. It makes me sad to be an American. It doesn't matter if you're black, white, hispanic, Republican, or Democrat. Whatever. All I did was read the blog and felt the venom spewing against Rush Limbaugh. Sometimes I really believe it's the media that creates it. Does anybody agree with me?
You will eventually notice that liberals resort to name calling, screaming and disruption if there's disagreement with their agenda. Due to bankrupt ideology, they cannot win a debate.
Republican party is not made by Rush Limbaugh. There are thousands of Republicans but they have shown their opinions as a respectful public speaker. Here we are dealing with a guy who can spark violent campaign if not stopped. If you are not agreeing with this, you do not know enough. People who have written negative comments here are against extremist political views of Rush. This is not even the issue of Republicans Vs. Democrat. Be reasonable Don't be judgemental.
Reading all these posts I can see why CNN's raitings are in the crapper and our country is headed in the same direction.
I adore Elton John. I am very disappointed he would honor Rush Limbaugh with his presence.
he looks ridiculous, like gaga
I personally don't like nor agree with most of what Rush has to say. But I'm amazed that the so called progressives spew hatred because of difference of philosophy or opinion. A discourse between disagreeing parties but I find liberals as the most intolerant. Intolerance can lead to facism.
I need to know why Elton did this before I blackball him. There has to be some logical explanation right? Maybe he is going senile?
Rush's way of giving back to the gay community.....
I think I need to take another shower...EJ can sing for whomever he wants...but what was that woman thinking marrying that bit of trash masquerading as a talk show host...oh yeah...$$$$$$$$
rush and conservatives never hated or wished bad on gays, maybe joke around but gay marriage as acivil right means no religion can deny or face closure its just that simple
Mr. family values has married 4x? Hypocrite!
As they did in the 1960's when the Beatles upset the Christen rednecks when John said they were more popular than the God (or was it Jesus?), I guess it's time to start burning Elton John disks. If I had any Rush books, I'd through them on the fire where they could burn together. Shame on you Elton. You are shameless.
I love it! Rush! You are wonderful! You have these idiots(Liberals)going nuts! Good for you!
I guess I'm lost, I thought RL was gay? Me thinkest you protest too loudly
Wow! That's awesome! I wonder who will sing at his next wedding!
Obama is a h3ll of a lot more gay-friendly than (Getta) Rush Limbaugh!!!
Wow... after seeing all the negative comments... it is more and more evident that liberals are biggest hypocrites of all.... they spout tolerance all the time, but dont have any tolerance for someone that disagrees with them... typical...what a bunch of dirt bags...
No, not tolerating people who don't tolerate those you tolerate is just self-consistency.
You sounds like the loser who do not have anything else but regret that you are not one of open minded.
The real Elton John died in 1976. This is some sort of impostor.
I think Sir Elton should one up Rush and take all the money he was given and donate it to a Pro gay charity in Rush's name.
The guys he paid to plan the wedding were probably gay...so why not the entertainment.
Most of these comments clearly demonstrate what is wrong with American politics. Reasonable people can disagree on issues and not hate each other. But based some for these comments you should consider anybody who disagrees with you evil, call them nasty names, and never interact with them. That is not the way to solve the problems facing us.
You seem like a decent person, but you don't live in the real world. I listen to the hatred and vitriol spewed from shows like the View with Joy Behar or the Bill Maher show or John Stewart on the Comedy Central all the while calling people like Rush a bigot with absolutely no proof. I read through all these postings with many calling Rush a bigot while not one person offered any proof. Adolph Hitler, another famous leftist once said, " tell a big enough lie loud enough and long enough and people will believe it." that's a paraphrase, but it's close enough. Rush is right; you don't compromise with the left, you destroy them. With the decent people of this country finally waking up, I think this will finally happen.
I think Elton should have charged him $2 million.
to jc- bring it on brother. I will debate you all day long because I know you never let facts get in your way. you will resort to name calling and trying to villify whomever you are debating. So, careful what you wish for
Rush Limbaugh...the fact that anyone even remotely CARES what that pustular windbag of woe is doing shows just how far we've fallen as a civilization. A conservative who can't even keep his own life together is telling others how to run theirs? He has no credibility. His experience in life consists of being a DJ and having a boil on his butt...that certainly qualifies him to be a spokesperson for half the nation. My gawd, if that's how it is, let's hope the rumors about 2012 are correct!
59 year old marrying a 33 year old – Rush you old dog - see what your money can buy – a hottie and Elton John - selling himself out for a pay day. Grudging kudos to Rush (this time only – I don't like your politics) and confirmation that Elton John is a weenie. I knew I never liked that guy.
So Rush is a bigot for being against gay-marriage?
Then... Obama is a bigot too.
As a matter of principle, I won't!
Did anyoen think that Limbaugh may have paid $1 million for Elton to play at his wedding if it were a gift to the Elton John Foundation which does a lot of good throughout the world? Sometimes there are people out there that still do good these days!
It's funny how everyone is so appalled that Elton John played Rush's wedding, but he likely got a nice paycheck out of the deal. What about Rush? As a conservative, he has come out repeatedly against gays and gay marriage. Doesn't this make him an even bigger hypocrite than we already know him to be?
I wouldn't do it – OK, OK, I'd do it for $1,000,000 But I'd get the money first and sing off key.
Would you all be upset if Elton played for Obama?
Obama is also against gay marriage.
Hopefully Rush's wife will put an end to his viagra fueled trips to 3rd world countries to have s$x with children.
Funny how everyone gets their panties in a wad over things like this. I have been an Elton John fan for 30 years. He's an entertainer, he gets paid to entertain. I don't care what his politics are any more than I care about the other entertainers, Limbaugh, Beck, Olberman or Maddow, who also get paid to entertain.
The beauty here is we can always turn the channel.
A lot of sickos posted in this thread.
And so we see another expression of family values the republican conservative way! Either through divorce or through infidelity it's becoming very clear. Their values are the bucks they can put into their own pockets and screw everyone else. I've listened to limbaugh periodically, but I can never seem to get through even an hour of his show without getting sick. All I've ever heard from him or any other conservative are mis-statements, exaggerations and Lies!! And the fools in SC eat it all up.
They don't really hate Rush, it's the truth he espouses that infuriates the libs/progressives. They can't debate the issues so they have to resort to the chidish name calling like 2nd graders. Good for Elton John and congrats to the newlyweds!
Rush only proved one thing, money can buy anything, including liberals. Who is the ipocrate in this scenario?
Really? For Rush Limbaugh? Wow....I guess everyone really does have a price. What a shame.
They are both entertainers, right. Only one actually has talent and has made his money bringing joy though his music while the other simply spews anything he thinks will make him sound smart while inciting hate and contoversy.
Maybe this is simply's Rush' way of comin out??
Anyone wanna bet they are divoced by years end?
That depends upon mid-term election results.
Why would anyone marry this horrible man, let alone four women!!
It's obvious many here have no idea what they are talking about. Elton did not do this for the money...LOL...1,000,000 is chump change to him. He has outfits wirth more than a million bucks. His fortune is estimated to be in the tens of BILLIONS. He's one of the ruichest men in the world. My guess is that he is raachin out across dividing lines the same way he did with Eminem.
In that case, 1 million is Like INSULT to Elton John.
Rush didn't even spare ELTON.
His wealth is estimated at $500M.
That is 1/2 Billion dollars....a far cry from "tens of billions"
I am sure John will give all the fee money for this "gig" to a worthwhile charity. That said, this still was not a good idea. Brush Treebough is at the very apex intolerant thought and deed. I know a lot of people feel that John is a bigger man for showing up and entertaining but in fact all he did was play in a mudhole. You play in mud, you get mud ON you. Spin it however your people like Elton. This "wedding" was no place for you for any reason.
I'm sure it was a paid performance.
Mr. Limabaugh know more about the bull going on in this country than probably all the sheep posting on here.He is not the just roll with it..whatever..just change type of guy.You go Rush...to bad though you hired Elton for your wedding..he a great great musician...but he's weak otherwise!!
C'mon Elton have some self respect.
I can only hope that Elton is just reachiong out across dividing lines in the same way he reached out to Eminem. After all, if a FRIEND asked you to sing at his weding, the fee wouldnt be 1,000,000, I hope Elton is going to donate that to a charity that Limburger does not support...lol
I have always considered Sir Elton John a very great and brilliant man, so far be it from me to question his reasoning for doing this. But come on.....of all the people that would gladly hire, and pay, him to perform why in the world would he choose someone as obnoxious and bigoted as mr limbaugh??? I'm sure SIr Elton has his reasons but it really amazes me that he would decide to give it a go, regardless of the reason. Besides limbaughs absurd views of most issues, the fact that he is against all gay rights, that alone should make Sir Elton take a pass on this one.
I also have to wonder what kind of woman would marry a man like rush? Apparently she hasn't read up on the way he's treated past wifes. I guess the logical assumption is she is in it for the money.....if so.....honey take him for all he's worth! At least get something out of the hell you are subjecting yourself too!!!
My guess is Rush gave Elton a million bucks and a reach-around. If Rush ain't gay, I'm the president. It's got nothing to do with politics. It's all about the MONEY!
Wonder if Elton played his "Texan Love Song":
So it's Ki yi yippie yi yi
You long hairs are sure gonna die
Our American home was clean till you came
And kids still respected the president's name
And the eagle still flew in the sky
Hearts filled with national pride
Then you came along with your drug-crazy songs
Goddamit you're all gonna die
Very funny stuff. Out of all the 'deep thinkers' here, I would bet that there are NONE that have ever listened for a week to Rush and actually listened to the commentary and the callers. Further, I would bet that not one of you sweaty palmed, fretting mental midgets could ever be intellectually honest enough to actually debate ANY conservative and not be childish about it. Well, your time is now with Hussain Obama spending your money, your retirement and your kids retirement while you whine and fret endlessly about a radio host. ha ha ha ha ha ha. Keep it up. Don't change a thing. ha ha ha
What are you talking about. You can't judge whether others are liberals or not from reading posts. These are just opinions about one bad talk show host who happens to be public speaker on radio.
And I know what would have Republicans do if they were in Power. ................They would have spent all of our money for iraq and afghanistan and pakistan and at that time, I am sure you might not have been concerned about our retirement money or kids retirement.
Right now AT LEAST OUR MONEY IS BEING USED FOR OUR PEOPLE.
Another fool the republicans have convinced he will be rich if he just suppports their policies. I love the middle class fools who supportr the rich even though their policies are killing thre middle class.Waive a flag and talk patiotic and they got you. You probably make minimum wage and work at a mini-market. Keep supporting the republicans and maybe someday you will own the mini-market (yeah right).
How is our money being used to help people? Healthcare hasnt shown up yet, jobs bills are temp jobs... the only thing our money has done is help big corps.
Couldn't have an intelligent debate with you because you are unaware that it was Reagan and Bush1 and Bush 2 who ran up the 13 trillion dollar debt. This makes you the 3rd ditto head I have come across who thinks that the entire 13 trillion dollars if from Obama and that the budget was balanced before his inauguration.
Actually atheist4jesus, you are correct when you say you could never have a debate with me, but your reason is incorrect. The reason is that it would take much too long for you to swim from the shallow end of the gene pool to the deep end to see me. But there is hope. Wait for November.
Can you feel the hate tonight?
ELTON!! NO!! WHAT THE HELL!!!!!
Does anyone here realize that this is gonna be much worse for Rush? He just gave man who, let's face it, is the poster child for everything he and his conservative base hates with a passion, a million dollars. If I'm not mistaken, Elton John is a man who LOVES to donate money to charities and organizations that the Rush camp deplores... all of which, I'm guessing, should start seeing checks coming any time, now... along with public statements by EJ's people explaining EXACTLY where that money came from. I think it's hilarious.
Good one. God is Great.
Maybe Rush is the bigger guy and dosen't give a hoot what EJ does with th money!
I was like......
Should I laugh at Rush ORRR
Should I be concerned about Kathryn???
Forget about ELTON, he got his reward.
Or....... just get a job.
Ten bucks he makes a large (perhaps $1 million) donation to a gay rights foundation in the name of Mr. Rush Limbaugh.
He does make large donations to childhood AIDS so it would not be surprising.
I am still waiting for anyone to post any sound bite or anything on how "hates gays".
Waiting now for 6 hours. For all the BS rhetoric and the fact the guy does a radio show each day I though one of you would have proven this link between Limbaugh and gay bashing...but I sign off now knowing you are just a bunch of hate filled lefty whack jobs that are mad that you thought "change" was around the corner but figured out your president is nothing more than another career politician. Heck the guy can't even spend more than two days in the gulf when all eyes are on him. It isn ot his Katrina. That is unfair...but he sure as hell could have provided a lot of "hope and change" by being there more in the past two months!!
Open you eyes...close your ears!
This is the best thing in weeks! Nothin like a good ol conflict to ratchet up the tension. Heck, if it weren't for the polar differences (should prolly read bipolar for some of you), we wouln't have much to say to each other. The real problem is, everyone's tryin hard to find tolerance and common ground, when they should be throwing tolerance in the toilet and working on acceptance. Elton, you rock. Rush, you entertain me at times, just stop and listen to yourself once in a while. Satn has spoken... Now someone will have a witty come back.
Wedding? Rush Limbaugh? These two words in the same sentence? Boy am I glad he's off the market. Maybe he will spend more time at home and less time broadcasting his brash stereotipical remarks. By the way, was Palin on the guest list?
Limbaugh could care less about anyone but himself. He regularly sucks money from the ditto heads that listen to him and his sponsors – otherwise he wouldn't be on the air. He defines himself as an "entertainer" not a politician. If he didn't say controversial stupid things, he wouldn't have a radio show because no one would listen to him, so the more outrageous, the better for him....wonder if #4 will be cooknig his dinner and cleaning his mansion like all of the ditto head wives do for their little hubbies!
Really, Rush is in Rush !!! He met 4th wife at his 3rd divorce before 6 years. No gap in Relationship.
NEWSBREAK!!!! AP IS REPORTING:
The Democrats "Party of Hope and Change"
has now been rebranded to:
Democrates: "Party of Hypocrisy and Hate"
Don't believe me. Just read the posts. When is it "American" to have to like everyone and if not wish Death on them and basically call an Entertainer every name in the book..who has done more for AIDS research and gay rights than probably anyone!!!
Bye Bye Dems....You do it to yourself. You wonder why Obama is in the30's now. Read your party politics and HYPOCRISY. You can't in one breath say "rush is full of hate" then turn and say "he is fat nasty idiot with a stupid ugly wife" and not expect reasonable folks down the middle agree with your blatant disregard to your fellow citizens all the while sitting atop your high horse. What makes you better than Rush...NOTHING...what makes you worse...RUSH IS AT LEAST HONEST and doesn't hide behine some veil of "tolerance".
Just look at your post !!!!!
Who made you think that these posts are by Democrats. I am republican and I do not like talk show host. This is all towards his political views and no one is interested in his private life. Today he has 4th tomorrow he will have 5th WHO CARES.................Be reasonable Don't be judgemental.
Huge difference, we are nobodies typing in a thread that will disapear in a few hours. I don't think Rush actuazlly hates anyone, he is just laughing all the way to the bank. But he whips up hatred in his degenerate audience and turns them to voting republican against their own best interests. He is part of the reason why the USA is going back to the dark ages.
This is soooo funny; however, I am glad Elton got his million. We all know Rush is in the closet. He better stay there – he is too fat to make it in the Gay Community.
Somebody married Rush Limbaugh?
who cares – can't it be that Elton did what he does as a job – plays music for money. If I had Rush's money I would do that too – but I'd get McCartney......nobody seems to care if a musician plays for millions in a major concert – OR get this..maybe Rush did it to stir up controversy to keep fresh and at the end of the day both sides of the argument look stupid debating this – welcome to America we'll find something else brain numbing, unimportant and extremely useless to chat about for our "heroic" iconic celebrities to make them more money – know wonder the world is laughing at the U.S. – about time you grew up...
I'm just suprised Rush got married. my song for the bride:" she's dangerous, supabad, better watch out shell takke your cash, she's a GOLDDIGGER!!!" (song by Ludacris) but yeah...whats more surpring is that this hot do got hitched!
Sir Elton, my first Rock and Roll love, why did you sing for that bigot???? He would never "Save your life tonight".......
Another interesting thing is as a conservative talk show host he could earn reputation and dollars that he could marry 4 times and give a million dollar to Elton. Can you name any decent talk show host who can afford to do so ?????
What should I learn here???
What a bunch of hippocrate morons!
"hypocrate"..... Isn't that a Greek philosohper?
I meant "philosopher", lol
GO TO --HELL-ALL OF U THREE PEOPLE--JOHN–RUSH/L & THAT SICKO WIFE TO BE??????????
YOU CALL YOURSELF–SIR???? ELTON/J???????????--CHANGE IT DUDE--CALL YOURSELF--SICK ELTON JOHN?????
ALL OF U R DRUGIE SICK IN THE HEAD?????????????????????
Awwwww............ need to hug a tree? You would feel better. Sounds like your forgot that your group always talks of loving everyone? What happened wittle one?
LAUGHING AT LIBERALS, It must suck to be you.
Actually wittleone, my life is great. So sorry about yours though. You know, all that hand wringing and only talking to liberals. Ha ha ha ha ha
i hope Elton is donating that million to his AIDS charity, now that would be poetic justice.
Elton singing at the Limbaugh wedding had to be a ugly scene. Did Elton know Rush hates gays.
The power of money.
I have no love for Rush Limbaugh, and I have listened to his show – but I do believe this illustrates that his "professional image" really has nothing to do with who he is privately. He is on a conservative talk show that "entertains" conservatives, so he gives his audience what they want, outrage, shock all that... Much like his rival Howard Stern, these guys are all propaganda machines that believe in their image... to a point. They get better ratings by being controversial, and shocking people.
Good for you Rush, I hope you actually took pictures with Mr. Elton John, and I hope he gave you a big wet sloppy kiss!
Finally someone who can see above the fray. That picture of them together I am sure has been taken. Rush is very private though cameras may not have been allowed other than hired professionals.
i would sing and even dance a jig for a million dollars.. who cares what that moran lush, thinks.... he is an idiot today and will still be one tomorrow... but green is green especailly during the great resession... more power to you elton!!!
Out of 400-500 posts we have the first honest poster!!!!
DING DING DING...YOU WIN. YOU WIN. You have your own brain still and not brainwashed by partisian politics.
You sir are awarded a life filled with happiness, good friends, good drink and good eats!!!
uh........ that should be spelled 'moron', moran.
Ray I done told you over and over that was just cause we was in jail. Quit calling me.
Seriously, if you knew anything about Elton John, a million dollars wouldn't move him to do something he didn't want to do. Whatever the story, is it's not money unless it's going to charity.
It's unanimous...We all loathe Rush. And by the way, when is he leaving the USA. Health Reform WAS passed. Bye Rush. You can't leave soon enough for me!! You bigot.
you mean, YOU loathe RUSH, you biggot
YES I DO and I am not alone.
And you spell it BIGOT.
As usual, dribble instead of facts. Lemmings are not alone either.
Liberals are in the House.
Got some news for you wittleone, liberals are always in the CNN house. They ARE the Communist Network News (CNN). Big surprise. I come here to laugh at the comments of those who cannot think for themselves but just spout hate and stupidity. Really funny.
Actually, I wasn't so much bothered that Elton John did this gig, I was bothered by the fact that this ultra conservative individual was getting married for the 3d time.
I say kuddo's to Elton for doing it. I believe there is some irony in the fact that someone professes to be ultra conservative; but yet hires the most open advocate for the gay community that there is. Hum? Is there something we don't know Rush??
I think it would also be really cool, if people would just accept others and let life go on. Bottom line, Elton needed the money; Rush needed a musician that would ruffle feathers; and his party guests wanted real entertainment. (Guess Stephen Baldwin was not available for the nights entertainment).
I guess it's Elton's choice to sell out....just like Rush feels it's Elton's "choice" to be gay. Elton can't stand up for anything....obvious sell out...just listen to crappy music the last 20 years or so...he lost his soul.
You are so right. For the last 20 years all Elton has put out is CRAP. He should never have split with Bernie.
ONE MILLION dollars; What a joke? Why cant he donate that to the national deficit? Every penny counts. We need your help
Elton knows what all you dingbats don't. Rush is not against Gays, Blacks or other. You guys and your little rumor mill have perpetuated this myth. Of course, most of what you believe is not based on facts, but emotional sound bytes. From your posts, you are the judgmental and close minded ones full of hate even wishing for another person to get a heart attack. You liberals think your so worldly but when it comes down to it- if someone doesn't believe like you do, you're the bigots. Shame on you!
This should have been learned by you Favorite one. He is liberally using Unhealthy Words & Acidic Arguments which is way higher inflammatory than what you are reading here on board.

Hey "You know what is funny", you seem like a person that has to make others feel bad so you can feel better. You fit right in with your friends the Tea Baggers.
I voted for Obama. Thanks for sharing the party hate and turning away another voter!!
What do you want so you are not filled with so much hate Mark:
It is almost like you want the Presidency, Majority of the House, a Democratic Senate, and two Surpreme Court nommys......
OH YOU HAVE THAT AND ARE STILL ANGRY BECAUSE YOU REALIZE IT MIGHT NOT JUST BE ALL BUSH!!!!!!
That was the easy cop out now that Republican's take but they took it straight from the Democrats playbook!!
Some people will do anything for money, and I don't mean Elton......Mrs. Limbaugh, how desperate are you, to marry that obnoxious gas bag???!!! I hope you did not sign a pre-nup, and take him for the Big Half. At least you will have drugs to make you happy until then.......
Let me make sure I got this right. Limbaugh the self professed leader of the Republican party has been married 4 times addicted to barbituates openly bashes on anybody or anything that does not think,look and act like him hired an openly gay musician/singer to play at his wedding. I guess his actions speak far loader then his words
If yout're gonna talk the talk you need to walk the walk. What the hell was Rush Limbuagh tihinking?
Just another hyprocite in the jelly bean jar
Seriously, you people are nuts. Too much acid and weed!!
Get a grip man!
Assume that this is for Rush Limbaugh & Supporters !!!
The only people you have to blame for losing in November and the next presidential race are your own party members.
Just read through this board...and you are the party of hope and tolerance.
You guys are whack jobs. Fool me once (Democrats) shame on you..fool me twice shame on me.
You guys are whack jobs. Fool me once (Republicans) shame on you..fool me twice shame on me.
Well, Elton John just lost all of my respect.
I have heard stories about heart attack in the middle of night ............... I don't know how does it happen ????
Pathetic that Elton would stoop so LOOOOOOOW
Well, million dollars are good for one show.
First, someone married that fat ba&tard??? Second, What was Elton John Thinking? Just catering to Rush's ego – I am sure that Rush bet someone that Elton would do anything for money.....and there you have it.
Wow, what amazing logic. Wow, what an amazing thought process. Wow, have you gotten your MENSA invitation yet? I am guessing not. Perhaps you could join their sister organization, the 1/4 th MENSA. (Now you can go look up MENSA in your World Book Encyclopedia set from 1969. Thank you for being so liberal. Keep it up.
Congratulations RUSH: Don't forget your medicines.
Congratulations Kathryn: Take care of your man (You are 4th)
Congratulations, Rush! Here’s hoping you’re just a few days and one fried chicken leg away from having that massive coronary that half the country's been waiting for. My guess is Kathryn’$ thinking the $ame thing.
And you are better than Rush in what way???
Sick individual. Seriously, I do not like Rush Limbaugh but for you to preach personal freedom, love, and tolerance as I am assuming from your comment a "Leftist viewpoint" then say that is disgusting.
Way to help your cause by showing how extreme and crazy liberals are becoming.
Note to self: Do not vote for Obama next election!!
Both of them are SICK!!
I'm sure she married him for "love" not money............what a joke!!!
I can't believe this.
When I saw him on TV, he looked like GAY.
Perfect Pee Wee Herman logic. Ha ha ha ha ha ha
I don't know why Elton should even come to sing at fat rot called RUSH LIMCOUGH,he must have disappointed many of his admirers who stand against what this fat cow represents
I think the 'boy' part says it all TEX.
Will you have energy to SHOUT at your show now ??? I doubt for few days .............
Maybe being married will make a little less hateful and trouble-mongering. Or, maybe not...
Hey Rush, wasn't Marilyn Manson or the Village People available?
The 2 individuals are business people. I do not think they have any convictions except what is good for their business. A "conservative" marrying for the 4th time!!!!!! I guess he could not "conserve" his vows the first 3 times? What is he "consering".............
Clinton got his balls licked in the oval office by a 19 yr. old intern.
Guess What: HE WAS PRESIDENT AND NOT A RADIO SHOW HOST! Seriously..I know. Crazy huh!
Oh I SEE!!! A Conservative talk show host is Liberal at Younger Chicks !!!!!!
Oh my god! Lady Gaga has let herself go!
I have lost all respect for Elton John...
He said he was really upset with your decsion and that it hurt his itty wittle feelings.
It is good to get that off your chest huh?!?!
You guys crack me up. You are all a few decions away from a padded white room. No joke!
Rush Limbaugh got married? I offer my heartfelt sympathy
to the new Mrs.
I can't imagine combining Sildenafil with Black Label !!!
Oh ! Say it isn't Sooo... Rush is the leader of the Republican party if not the FREE world... 4 marriages, addiction to barbituates and now this!!!! At least he's keeping the republican traditions alive.
elton john is a tool - he played MSG right after garcia died because he wanted to make sure he had more shows at the garden than the dead. elton has some great songs from the 70's, but after that he is nothing but a showman. he is overrated and has always been overrated. and rush is not even worth talking about - nothing but a hypocritical druggie.
Wow. How funny!! Do most conservatives agree to multiple marriages like this bigoted clown? He represents his party so well. And everyone knows that Elton John just puts his finger up to see which way the wind is blowing to help him make his mind up about what he believes. What song did he sing? Hall and Oates' What a Fool Believes?
Do you agree with John Edwards affair?
Do you agree with Clinton and getting a little sucky sucky under the desk from his intern?
Just sayin man....might want to break that illogical thinking. They both run on moral high ground AND NONE of them are moral. But Rush is an entertainer and he is not the leader of the Republican party as much as he wants you to believe that.
Considering that Rush is repudiated to be a little light in his loafers (despite his girth), this is probably appropriate. I am a little disappointed in Elton but considering how much money he was paid, he can be forgiven.
ELTON JOHN IS GAY?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He's very happy.
The annointed LEADER of the Republican party has a gay man sing at his wedding! That's great – I guess Rush will soon annouce he has no problem with gays in the military.
Now if Rush Limbaugh had Rush (the band) play vs. Elton John that would have kicked butt.
He is too much of a softy and traditionalist to go Rock and Roll even though he was DJ!!
Good for Elton John! He has exposed Rush Limbaugh as a fraud and someone who is just a right wing puppet for a price! He doesn't beleive the tripe that he spews on his show! "Traditional Marriage" my behind! He is on his 4TH wedding (so far) and has a gay married man perform there? He can't possibly believe the things he says, he's just trying to rile people up! So I say good for Elton John! If I were him I woud expose Limbaugh as a fraud for free, but he got a million on top of it? SOLD!
I'm a die-hard Elton John fan and a Rush Limbaugh hater, but let's not get too hasty with our thoughts yets. Let's wait and see what Elton does with Rush's cool 1 million. He might just have a trick up his sleeve. Elton is very charitable and it would be nice to see a headline reading something like Shocker: "Elton performs at Limbaugh's Wedding for one Million Dollars then turns around and gives it all to Charity. Hopefully it's a Charity or some wordly event that Limbaugh is against.
How many other fat slobs get to have a fourth wife. She must be a real winner–after the money. Now Rush can put his family values to work.
Elton John hates gays!!! Can't you tell by the picture above!!! Idiots...............
Could not pay me enough to sing at that wind bag's wedding.
You are worse kind of hypocrite because you put down someone and have no understanding about their personal resationship, why it was done, and YOU WERE NOT INVITED!!!
I am sure you would do plenty at Rush's wedding and EVEN TOO RUSH if a million dollars was on your doorstep. It is easy to take the high road when nobody is offering loser.
And Elton does not need money retards. He donates it to charity. READ!!!!
Ruah lives his support of family values and the santicity of marriage. After all in four marriages not once did he marry a man
I mean bigot. Has some strange, right wing views.
lost all respect for Elton..how could he as a gay man perform at the wedding the biggest, fattest, racist, ugliest bigot of all time..I guess one will do anything for $$$ and forget their principles..
Yeah, I thought how can this be just before I read the article. Limbaugh is a bogt and possibly hates gays. Just goes to show that music gets to anybody.
SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN- I'M LOOKING FOR THE ADAMS APPLE ON THIS ROOSTER
Coach, that's a picture of Elton John. I hope.
Not even one black guest @ this wedding. Not even the ushers.
Real "white wedding".
I hope Rush doesn't ever lecture on family values.
Rush is the biggest loser in history! He has damaged this country more than Al Queda with his lies and deceit. Maybe they can get the discounts at the restraunts for bring your Grandpa to dinner when they go out to eat! He could be her Grandfather for crying out loud!
Your venom is not attractive.
So sad, and I have always loved Elton
Limbaugh is trash.
I think it is sad that these two political parties have managed to get the WE THE PEOPLE to hate each other so much.
That is the WHOLE POINT suzy!!!!! Don't look at how ignorant, egotistical, and self-righteous the politicians have become....just fight over the relatively few issues that divide this nation and keep the focus off me!!!!
It is the only way a two party system survives 200 years in power. Sure there will be a few casualties along the way and races lost they expected to win, but at the end of the day that is much better than running on YOUR OWN PLATFORM vs. Party platform that everyone magically agrees with everything you say and do...cause if you do not you risk giving power to the opposition. Beautiful in its simplicity huh??? People look up to Politicians however every one of us would hate them (even our party affiliates) if they were our next door neighbors. They would hate us too...irony..aint it great!
The truth hurts doesn't it.. alot of people hate Rush because he is right most of the time. So is Glenn Beck--GENIUS. And Elton is very charitable so for him to accept $1 million dollars to perform at a wedding makes complete sense.
If you are saying Glenn Beck is a genius I think you may need to go back and watch someone teach on a "REAL BLACKBOARD"
He is a genius at making money and entertaining and that is even been admitted by Beck. He is not very smart though and actually (even though it is an act) quite scary on those doodle things he does that make absolutely zero sense to anyone with a brain. If you find him entertaining, so be it, but to say genius...well that is ...um...well that is quite a stretch and I will leave it at that.
I think there is a side to Rush he hasn't shared. You go Big Boy!!! today talk show Republican conservative, tomorrow leader of the gay pride parade
99% of you that are condemning Elton would blow Rush for six figures. And who is the hypocrite...............
The money gained was given to Leukimia Research and Rush matched the same amount!
Rush actually gives a boatload of money for childhood AIDS research. It is called a PERSONALITY for a reason morons.
They both help fund critical research and all you moral greats on this board sit in your cubilce and spew hate. WOW...you guys are so cool and great. You do so much more for Gays Rights then Elton John. No..seriously all of you do!!!
Good job everyone. Pats on the back all the way around for being the most ignorant people I have seen. Dems you need to get a hold of yourselves man..you have congress, the white house, and two supreme court nommys.... if you still think life sucks then maybe YOU HAVE MADE SOME BAD CHOICES. Don't blame Rush or expect a politician to grant you happiness or peace. From the looks of this board some of you need highly medicated!!!! ...if not already! Turn off the political shows it is wearing your soul think, and contrary to belief, politics are for people too dumb to grasp anything of any substance!
Thanks for posting some facts. Wonder how many people will let this inconvenient truth get in the way of their argument?
You guys are talking smack about Elton for singing at Rush's wedding... $1 million dollars wasn't a good enough reason huh? Idiots... I can bet alot of you would do certain stuff for money and Elton doesn't even need the money. Why should Elton refuse because Rush is a conservative?
And I know plenty of gays that are conservative-yes they do exist. Elton would identify as liberal but money talks folks.
Perhaps Elton did it to support his AIDS foundation. $1 million could go a long way in helping those who need it.
Wow, an artist who does something because he wants to and not because the Liberal world tells him its ok? Unheard of. For self proclaimed free thinkers you guys are really ready to judge.
Really, Elton? I guess you need the money ... these are tough times. But are you so naive to think that Limbaugh and his ilk aren't laughing behind your back, and cackling about how they can buy anybody. If you need cash, call Bernie Taupin and put out a new song, or tell Disney you want to be part of another movie, but Limbaugh? The Rocketman has landed with a thud.
Yea...$350 million lands pretty hard from all the weight. That is a lot of dough and it did land with "thud" as you so eloquently noted.
Try to make your next mortgage payment idiot.
Like they always say, "one moron deserves another". Wonder who will be diagnosed with AIDS first?
I'm pretty sure Sir Elton John didn't do it for the money. His net worth is estimated at $350- $500 million dollars, depending on which sources you find. Maybe it was Rush's bride that wanted EJ to perform? Maybe he did it because he knew it would annoy a few of the guests? Maybe he just felt like singing at a wedding? Who knows?
Sir Elton John, you'll always be a megastar in my book.
Land of Free (only if I agree with you)
Home of the crazy!!!!
Holy ball saks batman. Elton John did what he does for a living at a wedding. Let's all go ape banannas!!!
RUSH REALLY RUSH.. MAN..I RESPECTED HIM BEFORE BUT NOW...BOYCOTT..BOYCOTT...I AM CRAZY AS HELL@!!!
LOL...he doesn't care about what you think.
Let me make sure I got this right. Limbaugh the self professed leader of the Republican party has been married 4 times addicted to barbituates openly bashes on anybody or anything that does not think,look and act like him hired an openly gay musician/singer to play at his wedding. I guess his actions speak far loader then his words
It's just a matter of time before Elton starts dressing up in Aunt Jemima drag to sing for cash.
OH ELTON!! DID U REALLY NEED THE $$$ COME ON NOW......I LOST RESPECT FOR YOU..... MY GOD....HOW LOW CAN U GO... YOUR WORTH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, DID U NEED MORE..........BAD
No Elton does not need the money. He just is not filled with the same anger and hate that you are filled with.
Wow, you people are really unhinged.
This will blow your mind – Ann Coulter and Bill Maher are good friends.
James Carville and Mary Matalin are married.
You know all those talk shows where people from different sides yell at each other? They all go out and have a drink afterwards.
You can disagree with people without hating them. Of course, if you don't know anything about people, you can just make stuff about them and hate them for that I guess.
NO NO NO..Don't say that. We need to hate everyone we disagree with. Hate is all the matters. You are making it way to hard for me to have "individual thought" with all that logic you are talking. We need to keep up the charade to keep the paranoid to continue to think the t.v. and radio is really talking to them. DONT BLOW THE COVER DUDE!!!
Yea..I remember a lesson when I was a kid to not believe what you see on t.v.
I guess as we get older we get more stupid as well. Actually, we get so much more ignorant. Take a 13yr. old and watch the same political show...they will say "Why do all these peole lie and act like morons" :)
Doesn't Rush Limbaugh know Elton is gay? Isn't that an abomination? Or, am I being hypocritical?
You guys really need to work on your compulsions and depression. Trust me Rush is not thinking about you so why are you thinking about him?????
JonF, you nailed it buddy, these guys a nothing but comedians, and they are laughing all the way to the bank. The fact that they are destroying America with their hate filled rhetoric, doesn't matter to them. It's all about the money. Disgusting!
Good for the TROPHY wife. We'll see what she takes him for in 3 years time.
Elton John attempted to change perception though the means of not overtly hating his fellow man. I guess all those Bible passages are meaningless.
HOW DARE HE?!?!?!
Elton, I can't even begin to imagine you selling your soul for any amount of money to play for this guy! What on earth happened to you????
Is this some type of joke? Rush, a pro life pro family conservative loudmouth on his fourth marriage, what a crock. And then there is Elton John who is openly gay and liberal. Did Elton really need the money that bad or is Rush such a huge fan of Elton that he had to have him at his wedding no matter the cost?!!?
Poor Elton had to sing to one of America's biggest bigot in a room filled with the likes of Han-NUTTY and many other out of touch Republican thugs. Somehow I think 1 million dollars just wasn't enough.
Ahh, yes. Paying a $1million dollars to a gay superstar to perform at your 4th wedding....................gotta love those GOP family values.
Completely worthless and stupid comment.
I think it was a very relevant comment myself.
Gag and double gag! Why would an attractive 33 yr old want a 60 yr old windbag who spouts only hate everyday of his life, maybe he promised her Sir Elton to seal the deal! I would not marry anyone to see him perform but I would have attended the wedding.
This just seems weird , he hates gays , but has Elton John at his wedding so had to be a compromise for the trophy wife!
I think you all miss the real point. Just the fact that millions of dollars are being flung about says it all. Personally, I suspect the "real" politics of Rush Limbaugh will never be known. It's all an act – to make money – and he does quite well at it. Glenn Beck is a millionaire many many times over from doing the same things. Beck has admitted in interviews that he really doesn't care about politics – it's for the show.
Do you really think these right ring show-biz types are for real? They are all just making a big living off of all the people that listen to their acts.
Exactly. If you paid me what they are paying Limbaugh, I'd tell you anything I thought you might believe and that would keep you coming back for more, so they can pay ME even more. The SHEEPLE will flock to the trough!
Really..that would mean the "money" is actually the thing that people value most......................
I don't believe it!!!
OF COURSE IT IS AN ACT FOR MONEY AND TO KEEP HIS CRAZY FOLLOWERS THAT BUY INTO LINING HIS COFFERS SO HE CAN FLY TO MEXICO IN HIS OWN GULFSTREAM JET!!!!!
Don't know if anyone has pointed this out to you, but your name is missing an h. Just sayin... Actually I understand why you would think that all the conservative talk show hosts don't really believe what they say because that is the environment you liberals are swimming in. The liberals in politics can never really be honest about their socialist agenda because it would be booted back to the middle of next week. The difference is that Rush and Glen do believe and lay out the logic along with analyzing the news and do it in an entertaining and humorous way. Why is it that EVERY single liberal talk show host has failed miserably in spite of funding from sorros? Because of the bitterness, lack of joy, lack of logic, lack of cohesive plan, lack of a positive view, lack of humor and not very entertainin just to name a few reasons. As it turns out, there are not enough listeners who can stand hearing the same tired hate-filled stuff day in and day out. Yet Rush and Glen are still here and making a killing because there are plenty of Americans who will not tolerate the crap coming out of our 'guvment' at this point in our history. Go Rush. Dittos.
I love his music....but that's over. I will not support or listen to his music ever again. I am extremely disappointed in his support of such a slime-ball!
How many cats do you have Sue?
Just goes to show – with the wealthy and powerful it's always about money,money,money......... about the only Sir Elton can do to redeem even a small amount of respect from the gay community is take the million bucks and donate it to a worthy cause like more aids research .
Hey Hey Hey!! Rush is against gays in the military but doesn't sit on his show bashing gays like libs tell each other. In fact, he hasn't even weighed in on the Dont ask Dont tell (Passed by Clinton) recent news. He also likies R&B, Football and hangs out with people of all colors, beliefs and races. The amount of people misinformed is astounding. You libs get all your info from each other and your rumor mill. No wonder your so easily manipulated by the Dem lawyer machine, the press and their emotional soundbites. So, he and his wife like Elton John (I do and I'm a conservative) and the price was right. Its called a free market. You guys should be complaining more about King Obama throwing dinner parties on our dime once or twice a week. Being entertained by 3 or more acts each time- Some of which you would have to pay 80-200 dollars to go see.
And the right wing machine is so much different.
This is the very type of post that points to the true absurdity of American Politics. You think Demotards are the only ones believing the spin and the hype, yet the Right does the exact same thing. However, your spin machine is better simply because you believe in it. Right? You are above being manipulated because the Replitards do not do that type of thing. They are honest. They only do the right things. They would never sensationalize for the sake of personal gain. Only Demotards....when people wake up and realize that the only reason why people have zero control of the political landscape is simply because we deny all the lies from our political affiliation and damn those of the other party. This is on purpose!! A two party system which has been around basically for 200 some odd years...No generation has EVER been able to brake that cycle because of the "conquer and divide" tactics but at the end of the day THEY ARE ALL THE SAME. Yet you are all so enlightened. Get real man...really..get real with yourself.
Palin throws 100,000 dinners. To think you are not as manipulated as the left is laughable. You are all the same. The only difference between a Demotard and a Republitard is absolutely nothing!!!
@Chino Were you mad when Bush was taking all those vacations? You were paying for them, Mr. Taxpayer.
Put aside differences. You can actually have a conversation and discussion with someone who disagrees with you. You don't have to alienate anyone who doesn't agree with your liberal philosophy. You can be around people who don't look and act like you. Believe it or not, liberals. You can even be friends with someone who is a republican. Try and drop your hatred, liberals. Hate is bad. Stop hating.
Your argument is fine, but it applies to conservatives too! Did you forget that? If you want to tread the middle ground don't just scold the other side. There's plenty of conservative haters out there. If you can't see them, then you're not looking.
WOW it is time for Senator Al Franken to write the sequel to his great book” Rush Limbaugh, big, fat and stupid and ugly” and he should called “ Rush Limbaugh, bigger, fatter, uglier and more stupid”. I wonder if he is going to use his hearing aid and taken his drugs and his Viagra now since he has a young wife I shall call a gold digger. I am sure she did not marry him for his looks, age or intelligence, dollars signs all she can see in him.

Just because Elton is gay doesn't mean he is a bad artist. Rush obviously likes his music. Rush will also disagree with Elton being gay. This is America people!!! All of these liberal closed minded arguments is what is wrong with America today. I am conservative but disagree with a good chunk of conservative policies, as do my liberal friends with the liberal policies. Most of the comments I read on here are from those people who do not accept other ways of thinking. And for that, you are pathetic.
Eeeuuuuu !!! Totally Gross ! I cant believe anyone would marry such a disgusting creep (must be the money).
So many reasons to find this absurd... I'd want to hear Limbaugh explain his proposition to pay EJ to perform; was it because BeeGees weren't available or because Barbara Striesand said 'No'? Then I'd like to hear Sir Elton tell us all what he plans to do with the money. Either way... they will have a vast audience enthralled as they pitch their personal perspective of mutual admiration for one another and how it was such a lovely event.
Maybe the blushing bride was the one that chose the entertainment.
Hope Kathryn will git some money from the prenupt. Suspect Rush will be his same stingy self. Bet it is very limited payout.. Good luck Kathryn..
KC gay marriage is not legal in Britain. Why do Americans always think Europe is some kind of liberal wonderland? Maybe it's becuase they have never actually been there. Hell on the isle of Man (small island of the coast of britain) being gay is still illegal.
I think it is great that both can put politics aside and come together for this event. Stupid Liberals, you grip about one thing, you gripe about another.
Before you address anyone as being stupid, I suggest you learn to spell!
Why would Rush waste all that good money to get EJ when there are so many better musicians out there for a lot less money and a lot less drama?
Elton thinks that god is a gay man...what a dopey twink....there is no god. Any respect he may have had must be gone now.
Rush is an entertainer. I doubt he believes half of the hatred he spouts, if any of it. Unfortunately his followers DO.
Elton is an entertainer. He likes money. He got pizaid.
See, this is how the world works. Like it or not, this is not a big deal.
Just shows that Mr. Limbaugh is willing to accept people from an alternative lifestyle, and has an open mind. I would vote for him for President in a heartbeat.
Fat chance (no pun intended) of that happening.
This is something else. He must have not know whom rl is, if he did I am though with Elton...................................................
Sir John, you fool! I thought you were better than that.
I am not a fan of either one.
What is EJ's problem? Does he have any self respect? Is he really that desperate for cash?
Someone actually agreed to marry Rush Limbaugh?
Oh, wait, he's rich, fat, and not all that healthy.
And I actually liked Elton John's music and got to see him live many years ago. But Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot and I have now lost all respect for Mr. John.
I'm still trying to figure out why all the Libs are not down at the Gulf washing off shorebirds. Maybe they're just limousine environmentalists. They should put down their Latte and act on their principles. Oh wait, they're frauds.
Does your post have anything to do with this story? Oh right, bashing Liberals is the whole point. I'm sure many people of all political persuasions are down there cleaning birds and volunteering. Question for you, though – why aren't you in Iraq or Afghanistan fighting the war on terror? Hypocrite.
How can you joke about something as serious as the oil in the gulf? You are sickening!!!
Right, just like all people who are anti-abortion protest at clinics. You make perfect sense.
You are completely correct. The liberals only protest that sort of thing if the pres is NOT
I'm really surprised that Fat Rush got Sir Elton to play for his wedding at any price. Maybe his next gig will be playing for Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist so-called Church. Not that much difference between them and Rush....
U do NOT have to be a conservative to want to get Limbaugh off the air. He, like Beck and Hannnity, are all about the money, and the poor dopes who think otherwise, are REALLy DUMB!!!
Does it make you feel good about yourself when you call other people names like 'dumb?" Have you claimed the high ground in the battle for moral superiority? Hockeymom, is this what you teach the little hockeys?
Sir Elton John does charge, but does not accept payment. All money raised by him goes to his AIDS charity. It was several years ago that he made this decision. He did NOT sing at satan's wedding to pay his bills or otherwise get rich. He already is rich and does not need to get paid for his performances.
Bleeding heart libertarians or self centered conservatives. Who will win?
Money Talks......BS walks.............They are both rich.....what don't you fools get.....
So does this mean that everything rush has said is baseless?
To: Missy M: Parallel universe indeed! Tee Hee!
Maybe Rush likes it in the hind quarters once and awhile, like his GOP toe-tapping friends...LOL
The pics of them kissing brings to mind the reaction of Lucy when Snoopy gives her a smooch, "get hot water, get disinfectant"!!!! LOL!
anything for money! I hope they are all happy together. I'm not sure I will ever be able to listen to an Elton John song again w/o thinking of this.
Anyone who marries someone 20+ years younger is a PIG....
Probably the only time in his life that he actually considered the future when making a decision. when he's 80 she'll still be a hot 50 year old.
meanwhile, in a parallel universe, the singing group Hall and Oats (yes, they are still alive) just announced they are backing out of a contracted obligation to perform at an Arizona Diamondbacks game because they are "standing in solidarity with the music community" against that state's tough new anti-illegal immigration bill.
What dimwit married that drug addicted big bag of malevolence? Gadzooks. She must be one messed up gold digger.
Further proof, at the end of the day, all these entertainers are laughing at us, counting their paychecks together. Being a "liberal" or "conservative" doesn't matter as much as some cash in your hand.
Sir Elton John does not keep the money he raises; he donates all fees to his charity. Several years ago he stated that all proceeds from his performing will go to the chariity because he is already rich and doesn't personally need to be richer. So, no, this was not greed based, even if it is difficult to understand.
In case anyone has forgotten, here is something Rush Limbaugh said;
“…let’s say we discover the gene that says the kid’s gonna be gay. How many parents, if they knew before the kid was gonna be born, [that he] was gonna be gay, they would take the pregnancy to term? Well, you don’t know but let’s say half of them said, “Oh, no, I don’t wanna do that to a kid.” [Then the] gay community finds out about this. The gay community would do the fastest 180 and become pro-life faster than anybody you’ve ever seen. … They’d be so against abortion if it was discovered that you could abort what you knew were gonna be gay babies.”
Sir Elton John – that is a mistake!!!
Rush changes wives like he changes his nasty, skid marked stained underwear.
Let's face it 'they are both entertainers'.....they do what they do for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Give Elton a break.
I BETCHA whatever he made will be contributed to charity!!!!!
He must be really really hard up. "Family values" Limbo – 4th wife and least second mistriss.
Also seen, the entire Fox Newscast at the faux wedding of Rush!
Why do liberals like to talk about love but they love to hate people with whom they disagree? What kind of love is it that you are promoting when you hate people for the high crime of disagreeing with you? Do liberals have a problem embracing DIVERSITY? I am a conservative and I have friends who are liberals; I disagree with them on some matters but I don't hate them. You liberals should look in a mirror and see how unattractive is your hate.
All us liberals only hate those who hate. Particularly Rush "the Hater" Limbaugh.
Well, I've never heard Rush use vitriol like liberals freely brandish, particularly liberals in Congress, but . . . even if Rush is a "hater," (which I do not believe,) the more important question is this: why do you need to hate someone because of their thoughts? If it is OK to hate someone because they hate you, then you have allowed the other person to establish the standards for your behavior and you have openly conceded that you have no standards of your own.
Actually, if you think "all liberals are x" then you listen to way too much Faux news. It's a big world out there.
"even if Rush is a "hater," (which I do not believe,) " Good place to start. You don't think Rush is a hater? Wow. Have you like never heard him and are just going on his looks or something? He's a proud hater. He doesn't just hate, he despises. Me, I don't hate anyone. You punks could NEVER mean THAT much to me. I hate broccoli more than I Rush.
J.Crobuzon, if you are so full of love, why do you need to call people who disagree with you "punks?" Again, take my advice and look in the mirror if you think you are full of love.
Nice straw man, dude. Where do I say I'm 'full of love?' There's love in my life; there is also love in this world. I've got no patience for people like Rush whose whole act is slurs against his political opponents. Why do you think I 'need' to call you a punk? Did I hit a nerve? How about if I call you a bum? Does that hit a nerve too? (Look ma, I'm teasing a troll!) And when I look in a mirror, I see a ridiculously handsome and attractive guy, so that's not really helping your case.
Tstorm..it is proof that everyone has a price.
And I'd rather become lesbian that kiss Rush Dumbaugh.
"I think, therefore I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh"
in other words you don't have a clue to what your talking about.
RoyT...you just don't have a clue about anything! Rush Limbaugh is a JOKE and the sooner he does himself in with painkillers the better off we will all be!
spoken like a true and hateful liberal. How pathetic.
I knew Rush had not been on his show in a couple of days. I thought he was somewhere serving more community time for his drug abuse. But he went and got married, huh!! In 4-5 years we'll hear about this throphy wife being slapped with a gag order to keep quiet regarding their marriage and subsequent divorce. And she'll be laughing all the way to the bank like the last one did!!!!!
Black Sabbath is gonna reunite for the divorce next year. Rob, Rush moved to Costa Rica three months ago. He does his show from there now. He vowed to leave the USA if the health care bill passed, and he's a man of his word or something.
Let's see, Rush is on his FOURTH marriage and has no children. Maybe its time that Rush came out of the closet, after all it sure worked for Elton.
What the %$^!! What does a 33 year old see in a 60 year old man except MONEY!! It's disgusting!
So this goes for anyone 59 and 33 right? Not just Rush????
Because if so you just really insulted a lot of people!!!!!
If you don't know what a 33 year old woman can see in a 59 year old man, it means that you don't see it; maybe you're blind. It doesn't mean that there is nothing there to appreciate and it doesn't mean that other people can't see it and appreciate it. Other people are not obligated to be disgusted by the things that disgust you. The world happens to be larger than just those things that you like and appreciate.
Another reason NOT to listen to Elton John's music, I never liked his so called "music" any way and will never think that Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer of all times!!!! There is a difference between MUSIC and crap!
I feel sorry for his so called wife. Why in God's name would anyone marry that schmuck?
It's very weird Elton John would have agreed to attend Limbaugh's wedding. It's not like Elton needs the money or anything! How Elton John could attend a wedding for such an openly bigoted man such as Limbaugh is beyond me!
Why does CNN think this is news? Mr. Self righteous morality marries again. SO?
Just proves that Liberals can be bought.
Yea because we all have known that neither Libtards or Convervatards have a price tag.
Wow...Really AJ. What is your price mister morality? What would Rush have to pay you to attend. My guess is under $1000!!!!
Limbaugh's fourth wife, two decades younger than him = Republican Family Values.
Pass the Oxycotin, Elton.
MY GOD people, listen to all the bawling. Why can't someone dislike an entertainers lifestyle but still enjoy the entertainment?
I for one was disgusted by Michael Jackson's lifestyle but that did not change the fact that he was one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
Most here are letting their own bigoted bias get in the way of common sense.
GET OVER IT!
Liberals cannot distinguish between the two. Anyone who does not think like them are considered idiots or uneducated.
You’re wasting your breath trying to get a liberal to think rationally.
I heard Snoop Dog is performing at the next KKK rally.
Why is that Replitards preach family values and fail miserably and you ALL believe the hype?
More interestingly, is that why do Demotards who claim everyone is "equal" and "one love" and "compassion" and "individual rights" have so much anger against anyone that disagrees with their stance?
Anyone that follows politics and takes these morons seriously is an idiot. But more importantly you are just filled with hate and anger. It is quite ironic that while the right preaches about morality the left preaches about "love and tolerance" ONLY IF YOU OBVIOUSLY AGREE.
The same hate that Rush spews you do the exact same thing but yet claim some moral superiority...how does that work??? I am open to hear the answer. I voted for Obama but that is only because like every election it is the best of the worst. So before you think I listen to Rush or am a right-winged fanatic I am not. I am neither...I find it hilarious how you guys get all worked up..say one thing about "hate and bigotry" WHILE YOU DISPLAY THE VERY BEHAVIOR. You must get your egos from politicians taht believe, "if I say it they shall believe" vs. looking the facts. Which simply put:
for all your Loving, Caring, Dems...read the board closely. It is ok I guess if you really don't like the person. Great moral compass for your children. Point being all politicians and those who follow are morons and hypocrites. But because of the underlying issues and stances taht Dems run on ...you are a bigger hypocrite than Rush. Rush at least lets you know what you are getting...Demtards that preach tolerance but spew hate is delightfully delicious!!
Just what does that make you?
I personally see nothing wrong with calling out bigots.
It makes me an independant thinker and one that sees through the BS...what do you mean..what does it make me?
Like I have to have some distinct affiliation with either one these groups that are nothing but liars and cheats to get what they want.
You guys are fighting against yourselves...Replitards and Demotards...you are both the same hate filled, angry, out of touch, and egotistical people that run for office in this country.
To your question: I am neither. I do not let Rush Limbaugh ruin my day. LOL LOL LOL. are you kidding me? I don't let Obama make me think he is going to solve the world's problems. I guess it makes me one of the few that see through the BS and realize the entire political landscape is NOT NEARLY AS IMPORTANT as many of you make it.
But when you are lonely, depressed, confused, and generally unsure of life I guess you will grab onto anything and this is what Rush, John Stewart, Hannity, Obama, and any politician twists truths to have your 100% support.
At the end of the day....he is a radio personality. TURN IT OFF IF YOU DONT LIKE IT. For a party that preaches about personal freedoms, YET would love to pull this guy off the air you are as scary as Nazi loving Beck. You are both the same. Your hate is just directed in different directions.
Repblitards and Demotards can't get along because they are exactly the same and can't figure out why they get so mad..it is because you are fighting your very self.
What is the difference between a Demotard and a Replitard??? Absolutely Nothing!!!!! Both are ridiculous jokes of the highest proportions. I can't believe people are glad to say "I am liberal" or "I am conservative" or affiliate themselves in any way to the biggest liars and hypocrites in the nation: Politicians.
That is why most smart people stay out of politics because it is a giant game of BS. One can argue taht is unfortunate but the machine is way too big on both sides for it to ever be different in our lifetime. So let it be...live your life...kiss your kids goodnight...and know that tomorrow is going to be a good day. If you listen to either of these groups of fools you would have thought the world would have ended by now.
Rush has raised 10's of millions of dollars for pediatric AIDS. I'm sure Elton appreciates it.
I thought liberals were all about tolerance...
not tolerant of spreading lies and hatred
He's GAY. I don't understand how nobody seems to see this. Elton and Rush are friends because Elton used to pose as a straight man too. The affinity is a natural one. Ever see Rush try his hand at public affection? He can hardly stand to touch her.
This just proves that "Money talks, and BS walks" For one million dollars, hell I would have sang at his Wedding!!!!!!
People you all need to get a GRIP!!!!!!!!
both sold clean out. They both stand for nothing but a worthless green back.
Why do you guys get all worked up about Rush and grant his every wish?
-Really Curious In Ohio
Maybe Elton plans to give the money to a charity that Limbaugh despises. We can hope, can't we?
That would be awesome!
I thought Rush Limbaugh was going to leave the country if the Health reform bill was past! Certainly not a man of his word and a COWARD as well.
When he opens his mouth a lot of hot air simply comes out and that is just what his followers love about him.
Do you all realize El Lardo is laughing all the way to the bank, he is an entertainer, not very good at that, and we all should sign off and not give him another minute of our time. Shut the SOB up, ignore him, I am and going to sign off NOW
I need to feel hate to feel like life has any meaning.
Rush is a loser in every way possible–except one: he married a young sweetie.
Rush Limbaugh needs to be shot.
Certainly people know Rush is just an actor right? His affairs with men date way back to Chicago and a music store owner. I hope no one actually thinks that Rush is the guy on the radio, he is fairly openly bi.
You idiots are the most naive, ignorant, and gullible people in the world. It has to be an American thing to be so easily fooled or duped. I just do not see other civilized people being so stupid to care about radio hosts. LOL..really....radio...
Probably the same idiots that believed Obama was anything more than a politician and was going to "change" the world. Too much acid for many of you guys.......really. You put way too much into things you see on televesion and hear on the radio. That is not the real world but I guess fool me once shame on you...fool me ten thousdand times...shame on you is the new "American Motto"
Wow.. a lot of Elton John fans must really be wondering why he would bother to perform at a biggots wedding. Well this doesn't do anything to change my opinion of Elton John. Instead what I think this really shows is that Rush Limbaugh is a paid entertainer who doesn't really have a problem with gay people! Rather, he gets paid millions to go on the air and bash gays because unfortunately gay bashing still appeals to many people in this country especially to the right-wing nut jobs who listen to his show.
lynn – what an ignorant comment. I am not a liberal and I cannot stand that big fat idiiot, Rush Limbaugh...he's so full of it his eyes are brown.
4th time is the charm???? You better get a prenup Rush, it's a big age difference!!!!
Boycott Sir Elton!
Rush is such an idiot/bigot and three time looser! I would like to meet him in an alley and give him waht he deserves!
a good bj?
I think that anyone who has been married more than three times should lose all authority to speak about "family values"!
boocat, it's because he's filthy rich.
I long ago learned to separate the art from the artist and elton is full of contradictions but it is indeed surprising that he would perform for this mean spirited belching toad. it is really amazing when reading the comments to see how deluded the radical right is that they defend this turd, he is taking a trophy wife 1/2 his age (c'mon if an evil dem did that you would demean his character) he is a drug addict, a repeated liar, a money addict with no ethics, the list could go on, it is unbeleivable that he represents a segment of our society, THAT is scary
Rush likes getting his salad tossed. His honeymoon is full of Ranch, Italian, and Honey Mustard Dressings.
Rush, I wonder how long this marriage will last, you fat POS? Well wishes from all of your brain-washed fans out there that have been buying into your crap for the last 22 years.
Does this mean Limbaugh is finally going to come out of the closet?
Don't you have enough money Elton? Pumpkin head despises gay folks.... what a sell out you are Elton!
This proves 2 things I have long thought: Rush Limbaugh has bad taste and Elton John will do anything for a buck.
Why anyone would marry this bigoted, pill-popping head case is beyond me....probaby for the money.
His 4th marriage and I thought marriage was such a sacred union and needs protection from the GAYS.
I guess he needed the money.
And I used to like Elton that flake...:)
who was elton's back-up???????
I was right. Rush is a completely different person off the air. He is a biggot/racist on the air for his biggot/racist audience. It's all an act. Just like Glen Beck. It's good to know that he is a considerate person in real life.
You cannot be a considerate person and spew hate on the airwaves for every hater and stupid person to gobble up.
Rush Limbaugh is a bigot that said he'd leave the country if ObamaCare passed? I can't believe it. Could someone backup those outrageous claims? If this is true, I won't have anything to do with him.
Thank God Rush is holding up his end of the Republican Platform regarding Family Values.....1 2 3 4 how many more?
Hard to choose which one has a more grotesque appearance.
Call me a hippocrit.....I'd be a hippocrit who just made 1 million off of one show.
Elton John... what a fruit cake!
Sir Elton HMmmmmm is the wife costing you that much that you would stoop to sing for this idiots wedding. Its a sad day !!
Two recovering addicts helping each other out...One needs entertainment, the other entertains. Always brother's in recovery.
Can you imagine him laying the good "wood" to her in Mexico?!?!?!
Sweet Dreams both libtards and reblitards. I don't care how much you like that man that is not the image you want in your brain before DInner!!!!
I hope he gave it to her good!!! Mmmm....he is so cute in a Teddy Bear kinda way.
I would sing at Limbaugh's wedding for a cool mil any day... But isn't getting divorced and married so many times inconsistent with conservative values–where's the commitment to family? But I guess I know the answer to that. Besides, Rush did admit to just doing his controversial show for the RATINGS and the MONEY. Maybe he does not really believe all he spouts off about... ??
Yea..maybe he does it for the money and entertainment value. Maybe...i am not saying he does or not...just maybe though.
OF COURSE HE DOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys hating him is the only reason he is popular. Let his 10 million followers get bored not defending him and he goes away. You give someone exactly what they want by getting upset!!! That is the whole point!!!!
What is this world coming to:
A radio host invited a singer to perform at his wedding.
ARMAGEDDON....GET TO THE BUNKERS!!!
elton is in it for the showbiz, el Rushbo....I don't know, anyone look at his wife's birth certificate, was it marked male or female
Oh my....after a honeymoon evening with Rush Limbaugh I would was myself inside and out with clorox and then request a labotomy to make me forget.
I can't believe there are that many women desperate enough to marry that moron.
Well Debi, I can give you 250 million reasons to marry the Limbaugh but I won't. I just find it amazing that alot of people can't stand the rushman because he tells the absolute truth backed up by FACTS. I guess its true what they say about us Americans, We can't stand or face the truth. Thats cool, here is a truth for you all, Obama will be the 1st prez in a while who will be a single term wonder, Want to bet anyone?????? This will be another truth all you losers don't want to hear.
The DEMOCRAPS will be GONE!!!!!!!!!
It's always about the money. How often do you see fat, old, ugly (rich) men with young bimbos? And, the funny part is that these clueless men never think it's about the money!
Maybe Elton John realizes that he can only change opinions by being the bigger man and not resulting to the typical hypocrisy we see evidenced on these boards!!!!!
Maybe just maybe Elton thought it was a way to make him see more clearly and compassionately the lives of gay individuals. It may not work but it is better than the hate we see from almost everyone these days.
Elton is not an idiot folks. He knew exactly what he was doing and the reaction. He does not need money. He probably respected his "showmanship" on some level and also gave a chance for people to view him and other gays as an equal or in a different light. DEATH TO ELTON FOR BEING REASONABLE AND PRACTICING WHAT MOST OF US FALSELY PREACH!!! Morons!!
Hey Jum where do u get your facts about BP payoffs, Dick Cheney??
I can't imagine anyone stupid enough to marry that fat a**. He is sooo nasty and in my opinion a domestic terriorist because he does nothing but talk hate against anyone who doesn't agree with him.
Get a grip Jules, he has twice the education you have plus he has FACTS to back up his information. I just love weak minded Americans like you who really don't care for the truth, just your own agendas. If the truth hurts this much maybe you should go out and find a job or maybe even get a life!!!!!!
I mean, really? This person has a different viewpoint, which automatically makes them jobless and void of a social life? You know where I hear ridiculous, fly off the handle assumptions like that? The Rush Limbaugh show.
Wow, THREE marriages? Met his new wife while still married to his last one? Rush is just another loud-mouthed, 'family values' conservative hypocrite.
OK... just got back from burning every album, CD, tape, and 8-track of Elton's in a backyard firepit... and needed to let you (Elton, cause I know you're reading this) know... BAD MOVE! You just caved to the almighty dollar handed to you by humanity's biggest all-time anti-gay jerk. Wow... did you REALLY need the money that bad, Elton? REALLY, REALLY?
Elton generally donates money from special performances to his AIDS Foundation or other charities. Got to love how hateful the left is.
Oh yeah, shame on you Elton...sold your soul to the devil
Rush needs to go see the new film Solitary Man and see if he sees himself reflected at all....
I hope that if Rush is able to accomplish a climax, he has a heart attack and dies...good riddance
Rush Limbaugh = greedy racist that will do anything for money. I'm sure Elton got one heck of a paycheck...Maybe he'll donate it to something worthwhile. I'll bet he does.
Needless to say I will NEVER go to an Elton concert again nor will I listen to his albums.. How much money do you need not to sell your soul to the devil?
I agree with those who decry Mr. John's "anything for a buck" actions. How said that one of the most high-profile gay men in the world will sell himself and his people out, no matter what the price. Shame on him.
Why is everyone talking as though this is some sort of conspiracy or Elton sold out, etc. Elton John is a perfomer. A customer (Rush) paid him to perform at the wedding. He did it and got paid for it. Maybe Elton is able to get past some of the not-so-nice facts about Rush and just wanted to perform and make someone happy. Perhaps Elton does not want form an "enemies list" like everyone else does. Maybe he wanted to set aside their differences? Or maybe he just wanted some money :)
Consider if Elton had said no. Rush may have claimed that Elton was turning down what Rush may have considered a generous and friendly offer for reasons of political motivation or reverse bigotry. What if you owned your own business and you turned down every customer you knew to be strongly republican (or democrat)? You may disagree with them, but you're running a business, not making friends.
I am surprised more people are not shocked and/or appalled that Rush is marrying for the 4th time and the person he is marrying is young enough to be his daughter. Gee, I wonder if she married for money? I realize 'love' is possible, but it seems unlikely.
At least the bride was not the only money-grubbing wh0re at the wedding.
Wow! I guess I don't have to comment on Babyfacemagee's post. Imagine! A Rushhead actually saying THIS!:
Don't be intellectually lazy and just 'believe' what others tell you as they frequently have their own reasons for leading you astray. Do your own due diligence.
Guess babfacemagee doesn't practice what s/he preaches.
Who in the heck would want to marry Rush Limbaugh??? I am surprised that he did not sing at his own wedding. He has the mouth for it.
Somebody is jealous.
Yeah, a lot of people here throwing the hate. Just as you might see Limbaugh as a hypocrite for his stand on families & drug abuse given this is his 4th marriage and his Oxycontin addiction, those on the left are supposed to be compassionate. Hypocrites every one.
I only want to know the following;
1) What songs did Elton John sing at this event?
2) Was this girl he's marrying the cause of the divorce with Marta? Rush was very secretive about that.
3) When is he coming back on the air? The beginning of the show after something like this ought to be interesting.
Rush fills in a niche that the news organizations don't fill. The above questions (especially 1 & 2) haven't been answered by our news. Example; The current oil leak in the gulf.
1) Has it happened before? (yes in fact there were 3 bigger spills) One in fact in the gulf in the 79, the Ixtoc in the Bay of Campeche which rivals the Deepwater horizon)
2) Was it cleaned up?
3) What amount of effort was required?
4) How effective was cleaning that one up? Long term effects?
5) Have we learned anything from that spill that could help in our current situation?
This isn't to dismiss the catastrophic events we're seeing right now to the fish, fishing and tourist industries in that area. I'm just saying the media I've seen; (Local Newspaper, NPR, Frontline, CNN, BBC) don't have a taste for perspective.
Seems like a lot of people here don't either.
I like any transaction that moves money from conservative hands into liberal ones.
I can't believe Elton John sang for that jerk.
It's not like he needed the money.
Rush is a moron, bigot and creep.
I lost some respect there for Sir Elton John.
I mean COME ON
Sparkster, come on, its a million bucks. I'll bet you would have sung at his wedding for a cool mill????? Right, this just shows that money talks and BS walks!!!! Everyone has a price!!!!!
What song did Rush dance to? 'Goodbye Enormous Jeans'?
Was Mark Steyn caught pilfering the buffet table again?
Why is that some of you idiots equate being "Gay" with being "moral" or always fighting for the cause!?!?!?
Gays are the most hateful people in America as evidenced by the comments. If you do anything against their "facist gay rule" you are immediately ostracized and put down for not "being gay enough" Elton John has done more for gay rights than any of you idiots ever will. Rush knows that and obviously does not hate gays so much as to not give one a million dollars.
Misguided anger is a beautiful thing. Yes..the problems in your life are due to Rush Limbaugh – Demtards
Your misery is due to Obama and John Stewart – Rebuplitards.
Jeesh..everytime you read all this crap you just realize there are is a whole heck of a lot of shcizo paranoid Prozac popping morons!! Get a life and live it without trying to understand and blame your plight on the most ridiculous people in this country: Politicians and radio hosts!!! Shallowness is hitting a new low. Battle lines drawn over Rush Limbaugh and Obama....totally ridiculous. I really just hope that most of you are like 14. Because if you are an adult and can't figure out how the world works yet mabye you should pack it in and free up space!!!
Do the gene pool a gigantic favor and blow what passes for your brains out now. And if you have any children, don't forget to strangle the little imbeciles in their sleep first.
You obviously forgot your dose. I think his point was proven quite well by Marks schizo paranoid response to a completely neautral post. LOL...that is some crazy anger mark!!!! Keep away from sharp objects! Straight jacket deemed necessary!
Yes. There are a lot of hateful morons on the left and the right. Unfortunately, it's the most hateful ones that generally post to these boards, while people with common sense tend to stand on the sidelines, read the posts, and just shake their heads at how many ignorant and hateful people are in the world. Don't let them drag you down. There are still a lot of Christians that follow the teachings of Christ, not hatred, and there are a lot of gay people that have tons of straight friends. Reality is never as bad as a message board.
Gee. Do you think she might be marrying this blowhard for his money ? :o)
Rush is the man!!!!
And for you who generalize and insult people who make a choice in religion, orientation or politics as as stupid and ignorant as the people you insult!
Let's try this again. Miss Thing should be ashamed of herself. Doesn't she have enough $$ already?
Pretty hot for a beard.
Elton has been a has been for a long time. Now Rush can be a has been with him. Done with Elton.
Rush's ratings are down 37% over last year !
Money - good ol' money; it will do it every time. It will buy your principles, you integrity, even your soul. Limbaugh wants to show how "hip" and "liberal" he is by having Elton John at his umteenth wedding. Elton, on the other hand, will do anything for $1M, even sell his soul to the Devil as he has done here.
Miss Thing should be ashamed of herself. Does she have enough ## already?
Why, with all the good singers to choose from, would Rush choose a fairy?
So the man who preaches ad nauseum about "family values" gets married for the what?....24th time?.....guess he'll try 'til he gets it right!....what a phony!
Wow, being called the Jersey man sure makes me think your on the up and up. If your screen name actually represents that poop hole New Jersey where the most corruption occurs in the U.S. and not to mention the beautiful poophole city Camden, rated the No. 1 crime spot in America I am impressed Jersey man????. All that corruption and fat boy mafia crap up there must have really had you coming out with some honesty. I wonder if maybe you should fix your poophole state before commenting on the wrongs of others, What do you think Mafia boy?????
I'm not seeing what the issue is. I have friends that are on the far left-wing fringe of political beliefs (about as far away from my beliefs as you can get), but it doesn't mean we aren't friends. I feel sorry for all of you people who only choose to associate with people who believe the same things that you do.
I wonder what they say when you're not around.
OOOPS my bad RM is Puerto Rican....My bad?
A marriage made in heaven, or maybe a mirage made somewhere else.
OOOPS my bad Ricky is Puerto Rican....My bad?
Hmmm. Apparently, to be considered pro-family, multiple marriages are a requirement. You can do anything you want as long as you oppose gays and abortion. Witness Rush here and Newt Gingrich. And add the nuerous affairs (Jim Demint, Mark Souder, Mark Sanford, etc.). The Religious Right is clearly concerned only about political power so will go to any lengths and associate with anyone who lends them an ear to attain that goal.
First of all, Limbaugh and John are in the same business, entertainment. Secondly, if we all only did business with people who agreed with us politically I think we'd be in a sorry state. Third, why wouldn't a rich guy get a big name entertainer to perform at his wedding? I know some of you people who profess to be "progressive" and "tolerant" can't stand that someone has different opinions from time to time on some subjects, but maybe you should listen to some of those opinions?
Babyfacemcgee, take you own advice. Each morning look into the mirror and repeat: "Stop letting yourself get brainwashed by right-wing propaganda. Do your own research and your own thinking. Don't be intellectually lazy and just 'believe' what idiot right-wing zealots tell you as they frequently have their own reasons for leading you astray. Do your own due diligence."
Elton should be ashamed of himself. Performing at a wedding on a drug addicted, racists, American hating criminal.
At least Rush believes in Capitalism I did not think Elton John did after all he is with the Hollywierd crowed that thinks we should pass the wealth around but I truly have not seen or heard of them standing on the streets of LA giving away everything but what they need to live on, they are the hypocrites.
I have long been a fan of Elton John. I guess getting $1 million means more to him than the fact that fat Rush hates gays and has compared President Obama to Hitler. He is a right wing idiot.
Rush hates gays? That would probably be news to him. I think you've been taken in by the propaganda.
If the honeymoon is in Mexico...Ricky Martin is available....Maybe Ru Paul would warm up!!!!
On the subject of hypocrisy; Is President Obama going to pay back the $71,000 that BP gave to his 2008 presidential campaign fund? That amount was more than they gave to McCain-Palin.
The Kennedys and Kerrys do love their mansions, private jets and limos- I guess conservation is too good for them. As with most liberals, they wake up every day and ask themselves what they can make other people do to make the world better.
Do the gene pool a big favor and blow what passes for your brains out now.
That money was from various BP employees, out of the many millions of people who contributed a total of $750 MILLION to Obama's campaign. Unlike McCain, he took no money from PACs, so no donation from BP's PAC was involved. McCain in fact took more than $2 million directly from oil company PACs.
It is possible to have mansions and limos and still conserve and be for conservation. It's all a matter of degree. According to most "conservatives" if you don't live in mud hut with no electricity then you're not truly pro-environment. That's a totally bogus argument. There's a wide spectrum between "Drill, Baby, Drill!" and living like it's the Stone Age. There are people living in mansions with timers on every light and people in 1 bedroom apartments that never shut off a light. If you're really rich and you donate 10% of your income to charity, you're just as generous as someone who's middle class and donates 10% to charity. That's also why speeding tickets and other law enforcement fines should be based on percentage of income. The fee is meant as a penalty for breaking the law. A $50 speeding ticket is a completely different penalty to someone making $25,000 a year than it has to someone making $500,000 a year.
You right-wing nut clusters have some fricking nerve. Where are all those idiots shouting "Drill, baby Drill!" now? Where's Glen Beck, Ann Coulter, and Bill O'Reilly now, eh? Funny but I don't see them helping out the clean up effort in Louisiana. I endorse the suggestion that Republicans should consider voluntary sterilization. You people are not merely stupid - you're dangerous. Republican candidates should be reprelled as we would a pedophile, a serial killer, or a chronic wife beater.
How much money is ever enough? I'm sure Elton is well-off. Why would he sell out his principles to perform for such a bigot? Disgraceful.
Because he's more open minded and tolerant than you?
The guy who helped Rush get his start in talk radio out in Sacramento was gay and died of AIDS.
Poor Elton. Sold his soul to the highest bidder.
How amerikan of him.
Anyone who takes Rush seriously needs to have their heads examined.
He is no different than any other "journalist" or "radio show host" these days. Only a fool would take what he states as fact or make it anything other than entertainment. Some like being entertained in strange ways. But to get upset over the bafoon is only to make him more powerful. Don't you guys remember anything about growing up and how to treat bullys and hate...........you ignore it!!!!!!!!! Libs...you are stupid...Repubs...you are more stupid if you think Rush is somehow relevent. I guess maybe he is because the left makes him so.........but I think it is funny that people on both sides can be so easily manipulated by someone willing to say anything for a buck. If you have not figured that out yet maybe you need to work on your "not beig naive" skills!!! Good Luck Rush. Hope it makes you happy because hate only breeds more hate. No I am not a listener..........but good luck.
Then the entire GOP consists of fools (not surprising, actually) since none of them are willing to cross that corpulent turd in any way.
The more surprising aspect of this is what Gay people can't stand is intolerance. Why do you condem when I know of no one who is privy to the arraingement of his compensation. What would you feel like if Elton gave the money to AMFAR
Now don't you feel ashamed.
What would you feel like if Santa Claus was murdered by unicorns? Why don't you get off whatever you're smoking?
I'm disappointed in Elton John. Rush is no surprise hypocrite, but Elton John. . . . . .
Susan, cut the crap and can I pick you up Friday night at 9:00 pm for dinner??????
Maybe Elton can get Rush to loosen up a bit.
@LOL: The only post that makes any sense at all. Whether people hate them, love them, don't bother with them, you should all realize one thing: talking heads on the radio, whether left or right, do it for the money. Don't believe me? Read what Beck has to say to Forbes Magazine upon being named amonst the wealthiest. He says he's totally apolitical. Anyone wonder why are they so wealthy? Because you fools listen to it and believe it. Do you realize how hard Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Rhodes, Shultz, Hartman, et al, are laughing at YOU?? Good one, LOL. Finally someone gets it.
My guess is that Elton will donate whatever he was paid to to A.I.D.S. research. Some of you apparently don't know about the work he has done with his millions in the cause of finding a cure. If I were Elton, I too would take the money and put it to use benefiting something that Rush wouldn't be caught dead contributing to. You don't have to listen to any liberal to know what Rush stands for. Every time he opens his mouth he reveals it, and it isn't pretty.
So the bride was not the only money-grubber at the wedding?
It's those "family values" that are so important to hypocrites like Rush Limpballs.
Way to go, Elton. It's Kim Jong Il's birthday next week...
This is the first post at which I've actually laughed. Although, I do think we shouldn't judge Elton too harshly on this gig. The show must go on. Also, money equates to power in this country, so Elton just made Rush 1 million dollars less powerful. That's a good thing. Elton does a lot of amazing charity work and he's an inspiration to many people. If you've been a fan for years, try to think about this with more than the knee-jerk reaction.
Okay, so Rush was (53) when he met Kathryn (27) during his (3rd) divorce–>>>> Are you serious?? Pah-Leaze nobody say that "love" has no "age-limits" here! The fact remains apparently he "can't" keep personal relationships intact a/this being his (4th) Marriage.... I find it amusing...further amusing, that Sir Elton would play his wedding. Not sure if anybody is interested, but Rush's Penthouse Pad in NY is up for sale–>> 5,000sq ft but unfortunately he had to drop his asking price down a mil to $12mil–$$$ can buy anything, including entertainment & "Blondes" LMFAO
Why is there a picture of Lady Gaga in this article?
My guess is that EJ took the money and deposited it directly into his AIDSA foudation, he sure doesn't need it. It would be a kind of "in your face" to Rush.
My guess is that you're an idiot and he spent the money on drugs.
My guess is, he'll buy some more jewelry.
Something smells fishy here. Sounds like an inappropriate relationship to me !!!
So is Rush finally coming out of the closet ?
Limbawl must be taller laying down than he is standing up.
I won't post anything about R.L. cos chances are it will not be displayed by CNN.
Sure, Sir Elton probably was paid $1,000,000 – he deserves it, and Rush can afford it. And if you know anything at all about Rush, you know that he started out as a dj and that he loves rock and roll. So there's only an issue here if you believe that everything is about politics. I know I don't – life is too short and too beautiful for that.
If he "loved rock and roll" he wouldn't have hired that lounge lizard.
I personally don't see an irony here. Rush has told, all who will listen, that he is an entertainer. Elton is an entertainer. In this case, one entertainer performed at another entertainment party (wedding party). On to the next subject.
"...whom he met six years ago during his third divorce" Hmm, who do you think he will "meet" during his fourth divorce?? Whait is it about these right wingers that they can' stay married?
Sort of like left wingers who enjoy living in mansions and being driven in limousines; for example, the Kennedys and Kerrys. And, the left wingers such as the Clintons and Gores who each earned $100 million since they left office.
Hopefully, I did not confuse you too much with these facts.
Ah Jim – this article (and thus these comments) was about rush? Is THAT too confusing for you? Evidently...
My comment was for JIm not sheppard.
The theme of most of these comments accuse Limbaugh of hypocrisy as a conservative. It is apt to point out a couple of examples of liberal hypocrisy.
Have someone explain this to you. And yes, I see irony in Elton John playing for Limbaugh.
'apt' to you maybe, Jim – to try and point out hypocrisy from others whilst being an A-1 hypocrite yourself... does that make you a double-bubble hypocrite????
You wrote no examples of liberal hypocrisy. I find that too many conservatives resent having their overt instances of hypocrisy aired that they will label practically anything about a liberal to be hypocrisy...either because they are too stupid to know what it actually means or they are trying to dilute its meaning.
Elton John?? Rush should have hired RUSH!!!!! Much better band and if they had come over the border illegally to play(They are from Canada Eh...) the Government would have picked up the tab......."The Spirit of Radio" would have been awesome...
Well look at you Rush, honouring your wedding with this old sodomite as the master of ceremonies. Man how you've changed ranks. Skunk level. Now the countdown has begun until you both end up in divorce court. YUCK.
Do the gene pool a favor and blow what passes for your brains out now. The only one debasing himself here was Elton. And that's saying something.
karen i agree with you, cuz if the people writing these comments if they had the money he has they would not hestiate one bit to go all out and not caring whos feather they would ruffle. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
This is the Quintessential example of "I would do absolutely ANYTHING for money".
I actually worked the wedding as a banquet server... Lots of conservatives were there but I didn't see one liberal.
I thought it was funny when Rush pretended like he had a "special" guest singer that no one knew was coming, but I heard Elton Johns name come up a few days earlier. I have to admit, it was pretty ironic. Although, rumor has it he paid even more than 1 million!
Chances are he paid more than 1 million for security though, they were everywhere!!!
Congratulations Rush! Wishing you and your new bride well. I'm sure the wedding was a wonderful event.
What a bunch of hateful people...probably jealous of the wealth as well...so sad :(
Who would have thunk it?
I would have guessed that it might have been cool to have the group RUSH play at this wedding.
On the other hand, RUSH wouldn't stoop so low.
Pill popin' hypocrite!
I just don't like the idea that Limbaugh shelled out big bucks to a foreign singer, there are plenty of gay or straight Americans he could have used
Here here. Did you see Tom Cruise dancing on the MTV Video Music Awards? Whoa!
I hope Sir Elton's price was a million bucks for his AIDS charity. He should photograph the check with Limbaugh's signature and put it on public display.
It was a million bucks for his personal bank account. If there had been a charity aspect it would have been publicized like mad.
this is show all people that r hating on Mr. LImbaugh that he is not even in office or running for office, but yet you fear this man so much. so what if he has been divorced and abused prescriptions medications. why do you let it still affect you in a way that u write so much hateful emails. im a conversative but i dont agree with all his beliefs or im a follower.
I AM ONLY A FOLLOWER TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. FORGIVE AND FORGET., AND MOVE ON. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Why is everyone so shocked... this is the perfect example of what a right wing conservative is... just like the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz... Due to complete lack of self-confidence, these types of people spew their pathetic, narrow-minded thoughts of the ideal, but peel back the layers of that stinking onion and you find out they are nothing more than an empty shell of hypocrisy!
Wow! Our community is fired up about this and rightfully so! This guy wrote an amazing blog that makes some points everyone else has seemed to miss in the media it's at http://www.this-gay-life.com/2010/06/sir-elton-john-uncle-tom.html
There are many, many, many rumors that Rush Limbaugh is a closeted gay man and does not come out of the closet because his right wing Christian fundamentalist fans would desert him and destroy his muti-million dollar radio show empire. Remember Elton John claimed to be straight and was married once also.
I think Elton sees the irony and performed for the money as well as the absurdity of the whole thing. Rush will continue to live his oh so conservative life, and Elton will continue to live his not so flamboyant one and none of it makes a damn difference to the world, other than to demonstrate how shallow we can be with this comments.
I love Elton John's music. His fashion sense...meh... Is that a chandelier hanging from his ear?
what did the fat windbag have to paid 40 mill a year to pay elton 1 million for 2 hours of singing
I love both of them, both masters and brilliant!
Elton is talented open and honest..................................Rush is basically an opportunist, with some major flaws (draft-dodger, drug abuse, racist, fat, 4 marraiges), but you have to give him credit for sucking all of that money out of the pocket of his "ditto head" followers.....The perfect Republican icon for our children to emulate....
You mean someone actually married this loser?.......Well I guess there is somebody out there for everybody.....No matter how screwed up you are.
Apparently there are 4 sombodies out there for everyone...I am looking to sell my other 3 sombodies if anyone is interested...
Anytime you say something against Rush it's left wing propaganda. Even though out of his own mouth he says racist anti gay stuff.
Mind control is amazing.
So let's see – Elton married a woman, got divorced, then came out. Rush has married and divorced 3 times, and now this is the fourth marriage. Maybe Rush just can't bring himself to the same conclusion that Elton did.
So he married Lady Gaga 40yrs in the future?
My goodness, me and my partner can't even afford to buy a home. Yet, Limbaugh pays Elton $1,000,000 for an hour or so at his wedding? Then turns around and ditches people on his radio program that have less than he does? When will the American system of 'haves and have-nots' be leveled so those with means will not trash those who do not have much – and I'm not talking only money. I am speaking of equal rights.
From my knowledge of Elton, I can almost hear what he has to say about performing at someone's wedding who would not appreciate his own. Elton would say, "If they can take my rights away, I'll gladly take their money away from them". If I were in Elton's position, I'd do the same thing. Except my fee would be ever so exhorbitant. Elton will always rock! Good for you Elton.
If I were Elton, I would just tell Rush to F- off.
Let's not confuse being a conservative with being a Christian. A conservative does not necessarily believe that divorce is wrong so I really don't believe Rush is a Hypocrite, just a bit misguided perhaps. He has never to my knowledge proclaimed himself to be a Christian even though he mentions God from time to time. So many people have the false belief that because they live in the US they are Christian and that is just not true. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and asked him to forgive your sins you are a Christian and are bound for Glory in Heaven.
"Way to sell out the gay community for money you didn't need, Elton."
Yep, that's the long and short of it.
Myron–you have no idea what Sir John plans on doing with the money–for all you know he could be using every penny to support the gay community–you shouldn't assume (you know what they say about that) or condemn without all the facts!
Such a nice group of people posting on here.
He's such a good conservative isn't he, except when it comes to his own indulgences!!! R L makes my stomach sick!!
Maybe Rush is just a Closet Queen . . .
Let's check the scoreboard.......................Dodged the draft, used illegal drugs over a long period of time, suckered his "ditto heads" out of $100 million $'s a year by sitting on his a.. , and now is on his 4th marraige.....................and this is the head of the Republican party, the party of conservative American values?..............................Hypocricy at it's finest........
Last I heard Rish Limbaugh was not a politician, and most certainly not the "head of the Republican Party". He is a radio shock jock. He is the equivalent of Howard Stern...in a suit...
I knew I shouldn't of gotten up this morning...one of rush's marriages was officiated by and held at USSCJ Clarance Thomas's estate...strange world we live in..
Sir Elton must be desparate for cash??Lost all respect for Elton.
Just more evidence that Rush's and his show are a joke. To all that follow this nut-job, his show is for entertainment purposes... he makes a boat-load of money vomiting his hate speech, keep this in mind the next time you are parroting something this moron says.
When are you fools going to realiz that Rush is in the entertainment business. This is not shocking, a news story, or of any great concern.
Rush is Hollywood. Rush sold a 13 million dollar NY apt not long ago that looked like an old King lived there with the over the top decor.
His listeners are idiots. He knows that. He would never hang out with anyone that listens to him. They are too poor and trashy for his Hollywood elitist self. It is only funny that people think he is being serious when all he is doing is stirring the pot to make money off simpletons. Beck, Hannity, Rush, the whole lot...sensationalism sells folks. It isn't who he is though..........DUH
You guys posting comments here sure you're not all rabid conservatives. Talk about a bunch of judgmental people.
Tolerance and diversity is sure talked about a lot among liberals, but as can be seen by the comments here, not many people practice it. I'm probably more liberal in my views than any person posting here, and yet I manage not to sound like a judgmental, right-wing hater like the rest of you. Go figure.
No offense, but you're basically saying that liberals should be tolerant of intolerance. That's the problem. When conservatives demand to be tolerated, they are asking for intolerance to be tolerated, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of tolerance.
thomas, I hear the teacher calling you. Back in class. The third grade is nothing to mess with.
What a queen! As for Elton, tisk...tisk.
I assume Sir John does not need to hop around this planet performing so he can make a living. I assume he has wealth that will last for years and he instead performs becuase he wants to.
With that said, I assume he "wanted" to do this for personal reasons and not for the money. In which case, I now think he is indeed that pompous self centered ego maniac that insulted the asain media and called them all pigs. He and Rush apparently have a lot in common.
Fourth time's a charm?
Funny reading these comments. Lot of ignorance and hate. Not surprised. Congratulations Rush on your nuptials. Congratulations Elton John for the pay day. It's nice to be in demand.
Very Cool. I'm sure obama was there wishing them well . If not...he should have been.
Elton playing at the wedding is like Obama serving drinks.
Wow shes not very pretty but I like her glasses!
Are you sure your looking at the Bride and not Elton John with glasses and a dress?
What a riot !!! He's marrying someone who's young enough to be his daughter, and Elton John demonstrates the power of money !!!
She probably is his daughter from a previous marriage! Keeping it all within those conservative family values.
I hope all of you republican conservatives are happy with the man you idolize. Has he not proved once and for all he does not practice what he preaches. Don't forget about the prescription drug abuse.
Do you disown every Democrat that has used drugs? If you did there would be no one left! You better get off your high horse if you think that your "highly respected" Democrats never used/abused drugs.
I even heard that some Democrats use fossil fuels on occasion. Especially the ones who fly by me on the highway in their SUVs.
BTW, when is President Obama going to pay back the $71,000 that BP gave to his 2008 presidential campaign fund? That amount was more than they gave McCain-Palin.
You're missing the point, Marc. Democrats aren't the ones routinely sitting atop high horses, spouting about morals and family values. Limbaugh in particular sets himself up as a champion of "morals". Go back and read his comments during the Clinton presidency. The issue is the hypocrisy and phony, manipulative rhetoric coming out of people on the right, especially Limbaugh. NOBODY is "moral". EVERYBODY is guilty of something. The point is, the people throwing the most stones these days seem to be standing on the far right.
JIm – The contributions that you refer did NOT come from BP. The money came from citizens that work for BP. You must state your employer when you contribute. This has nothing to do with BP. It's simply the democrats that work for BP gave money to Obama. Obama likely got more money from most businesses simply because more people gave to him.
BP employees also gave money to McCain..... only not as much since fewer republican employees wanted to contribute to McCain.
Remember.... These are PERSONAL contributions... NOT money from BP.
CONSERVATIVE VALUES – Another one to add to the Book of Oxymorons.
CONSERVATIVE – Never seen one conserve a damn thing. Not our planet or it's natural resources.
Hmmmm!!! I liked the bride's glasses. Rush you have a cool choice – no wonder you met her during the 3rd divorce – THIRD DIVORCE.
So maybe Rush is another closet conservative, marrying the young chicks to hide some bathroon stall toe tapping.
I thought only Democrats did that?
aWell, Marc – that would make you wrong, wouldn't it? 4th marriage from a loud mouth who pushes 'family values'? faux mews at its worst.
well, Marc, you are an idiot.
Who cares? Not everything has to revolve around politics. I can't think of many times I've ever agreed with Rush, but if he wants to hire Elton John for his wedding and Elton John accepts the job, it's no big deal. People need to relax.
@Steerpike, EVERYTHING revolves around politics. What planet you are from?
I just all respect for Elton John! Never had any Rushbo!!!
Ironic that Rush is deaf.
Conservatives values? 4th Marriage? Do you see the hypocrisy here?
Hypocrisy runs rampant on the Conservative side of the isle. Truth doesn't have anything to do with their opinions. I force myself to listen to this idiot on occassion just to find out how far-out there his listeners are. The guy literally makes things up and his "true believers" really think its true. Nut jobs, each and every one.
That's as hypocritical as all the Obama-stickered SUVs that pass me on the highway.
BTW, unless you are Catholic, divorce is not a sin.
We are ALL hypocrites. It is, in itself, hypocritical to point out someone elses hypocritical-ness...
I'm about as conservative as they get....but I don't listen to Rush....he's just an entertainment person....and like most in entertainment/Hollywood/pro sports etc these days....marriage means nothing sacred to them. Any of the listeners of Rush who would fall into the category of "followers" are just as blind as folks who believe or care about what most activist hollywood types say about their causes......think for yourself, take care of yourself and those you are responsible for in your family...and then give something extra to the community you live in.
and a drug abuser to boot
Jim, if you're a Christian of any sort, divorce is a sin except in the case of adultery (which, of course, is itself a sin.) At least, that's what Jesus said about it (see Matt 5:32 and Matt 19:3-9.)
Jim, did you miss the hybrid logo on those SUVs?
Wow! Something actually agreed to Marry that right-wing douchbag nutjob?
Rush and Elton got married? What?
Just keep passing him cheeseburgers and Xanax. He'll be dead soon enough.
You're talking about Rush, right?
I'm embarrassed for all concerned.
I agree with you. Can't stand Rush and can't understand why Elton would lower himself to go anywhere near him. He already has more than enough money! Why would he do this? Very weird. (And, no, I'm not gay).
hope he sang bennie and the jets~~
Let's see here...
Limbaugh's almost 60 and he's now married to a 33 year old woman? I can't imagine, other than dollar signs, what she could possibly see in this fat old man.
steady supply of codeine.
I am sure she did NOT marry him for his money! haven't you ever heard of love? Just because when she will be hot at age 60 and he will be almost 90, she is not after his money pure love (yea right)
The same thing your husband/wife sees in you, you thoughtless little pig!
It worked out so well for Anna Nicole Smith, I don't see why it wouldn't work here.
I would say the same about Mrs Obama. Why would anyone wanna marry a narcissistic man-child? At least Rush has some intelligence and MANAGEMENT skills to speak of, not so much for Mr president pants. Dittos to rush
Power, celebrity and yeah, a really hot body!
My thoughts exactly.........59 groom + 33 bride = yuk
Yea, as one being 33 and only being able to get 60 year old women it must be quite frustrating for you. Bless your heart.
Is that a picture of Rush or his new bride?, can't tell with the sunglasses on.
Good grief, that's Elton John, not Rush, keep up.
hey had2reply, change your name to had2fail2recognize-sarcarsm
dave, you're too funny.
had2reply ... a bit dense are we?
Hilarious! Had2Reply, you must be a Rush fan... way to miss the forest.
Way to sell out the gay community for money you didn't need, Elton.
Guess I won't be listening to any more Elton John – at least I knew what to expect with rush. I didn't realize elton would do anything for $s.
Think of it this way: Elton just took $1 million dollars from a hateful bigot, and can now spend it on whatever liberal causes he wishes to. There's nothing wrong with taking money from conservatives then laughing as you donate it to NOW or MoveOn.org or the ACLU.
Over the last xx years, Rush has been overtly hostile, period.
Uh, rick the Rush hater – see, the thing is, when you put xx it clearly demonstrates that you have no concept of how long Rush has been at this. Secondly, when you end a sentence, you don't actually have to spell out the period, you can just use one of these. I am guessing you are just tired studying for that GED. We are all proud of you, however, for the complete thought. Congratulations.
LAUGHING-Your having graduated high school isn't as much of an accomplishment as you seem to think it is. And although I don't expect you to change, you continuously mistake ad-hominem attack with an actual argument. But I can see how that might be confusing for you with Rush as your role model. Some people just get off on abusing people. I pitty you just as I pitty Rush.
Money is very powerful.
So Rush is okay with being gay if they have enough money! Interesting.
Babyfacemagee – the same should be said for you. Please...go beyond Faux and Rush to get your news and you might find out there is more to life than lies, distortion, and hypocricy.
Babyfacemagee..if one is against people having equal rights, then I would consider that person bigoted..They don't neccesarily have to state that they "hate" gays..
Wow. A dittohead advising others to "think for themselves."
Rush Limbaugh – A man of character. A man of principal. A man of faith.
A man of addiction, A three time loser and three time lier (if you consider his "vows"). A man who keeps his promises... Isn't this the man who said he would move out of the country if the health care bill pasted?
He lacks all the traits that make a man a man – Character, Principals and a moral compass. He doesn't care about you, me or anyone else, least of all America. All Rush cares about is making as much money as he can and pumping up his insatiable ego by being a blow hard on the radio.
Just what the Republican party needs, Like Sarah "Drill Baby Drill!" Palin doesn't do enough damage every time she opens her mouth.
Over the last ten years, Rush Limbaugh has been a key contributor to a political and social environment that is overtly hostile to gays.
Go to Google, type in Rush Limbaugh Anti Gay Comments. Before you spout off about something, DO YOUR RESEARCH. I'm sure Rush doesn't plan on you doing that.
I don't know which one is the bigger hypocrite!!
Right on! Does this mean that Elton John is a gay racist? What next?
Elton has raised and given more money then most people can imagine to AIDS charities amoung others. If he can take that blow hards money and put it to good use than more power to him! Does whatever company you work for pick and choose who buys their products? No...they take money when offered to be paid for their talents.
Besides MAYBE exposure to a decent gay guy will change some of the opinions Rush has...
and we care about Rush
I bet Glenn Beck cried his eyes out!
Sean, Elton is already married. He is English, and, since they allow all to have basic civil rights there, he was allowed to marry his longtime boyfriend, David.
And I believe Rush's invite got lost in the mail. ;)
If Elton is singing at that guy's wedding, my guess is that he is totally broke...or he had no clue and he can now fire his manager. Unreal.
Maybe Sir Elton is not 'selling out the gay community'...maybe he is 'being the larger man' and demonstrating some magnanimity and tolerance by performing at Limbaugh's wedding. If one sees it in that light, Elton looks pretty big compared to Rush, and his actions could be taken as those of a role model for tolerance and civilized behavior.
Does this mean that Rush is an Elton John fan? That he likes the music of a man married to another man? How progressive, Rush. Makes me believe that, Like Sir Elton, you are willing to put aside your true personal beliefs if the price is right. Note to the conservatives...You're talk-show heroes don't actually believe what they say. They are just getting paid at your expense...That goes for religious leaders (of all stripes) as well.
I will never purchase, or listen to another record from Elton John. I guess everyone has a price.
I'm with KC, I think he did this for the free pills and money.
Why, Elton, why?
Could you not pass up that money for principle???? Are you that hard up? You are supporting the biggest biggot in the country, one who hates you and all you stand for. Like Israeli Symphony playing for Hitler.
I think this is great. As much as I find Limbaugh to be extremely offensive, if liberals live in fear of interaction with the "other side," that makes us just as bad. If we are so unwilling to even entertain the idea of interaction with people who have differing view points, how can we expect anything to get done in the world? Oh wait this is why every bill in congress lately has been a joke!
i don't care what anybody says about the man's right to perform for whomever he chooses, or screening all concert-goers to make certain that none are Rush-like bigots, accepting money to serenade this frankly evil man is pathetic... but then, for someone who spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on flowers a month, when half the world's population is starving, what should we expect? disgusting.
I don't know why any Elton fan (I'm one) should be offended. Heck, he lightened Rush's wallet by $1M. Elton will never get an easier payday.
All I can think of is how can any woman be intimate with Limbaugh. It is enough to turn one's stomach. I wonder if he thinks his money wasn't a factor in her marrying him.
I once heard Rush say that career women were ugly, because the pretty women had found suitable husbands and didn't have to work. I guess he found a pretty girl who was attracted to his bank account – because there is no way a sane woman would be able to find him attractive!
Wow, I feel badly for so many reasons here... This shows that Elton will do anythying for a buck. It also shows that Limbaugh is an hypocrite (marriage #4). It's offensive no matter how one looks at it. Elton should have told Rush to cram that million where the sun never shines...
What a joke. The most upstanding citizen in the United stake of America, the great Rush spends a million for Elton John performance. The bottom line is, rich people dont care about ideals. They fork that out to the suckers who listen to them and make them rich..
One on the radio and the other with records. So the great Rush marries a thirty three year old. Bet you there was a prenuptial
agreement. I give them three years of marriage. I hope no one says that he bought her. That would be an American.
I can't believe Elton John would be in the presence of that horrible man even if he was paid a million dollars! Who is the crazy woman that married the bigot anyway?
Everyone is so quick to call Limbaugh a bigot – no proof to back it up, they just call him that. At the same time, he chose a black host is hosting his multi-million dollar radio program.
It would be funny to have some of these one-line anti-Rush posters actually debate him on the issues... could they do it without insults? Doubt it. Then again, based on some of the posts, they probably don't know what the issues even are.
Good for Elton John. Get paid to sing, put politics aside.
SHAME on you Elton John. Did you really need that extra million!! sometimes a person can sell himself too expensively too!!
Cant wait to hear what Beck, O'Riley and Hannity have to say tonight. That is the no spin zone Fox.
Elton John might disagree with Rush's position on gay marriage, but that doesn't mean he is a liberal on all issues. I don't know what John's politics are. But hell, I'd play at someone's wedding if I disagreed with them and they paid me a million dollars.
Politicians and celebrities = anything for a buck. Period.
Well Elton does support the President who is against marriage equality for gay people, so this does not surprise me at all.
The way I see it is Rush just donated 1 million to the Elton John Aids Foundation; good for Elton! Not likely he'd receive such a generous donation puerly from that nimrod Rushs' 'thoughtfulness'.
It continues to baffle me when people like Rush can have such a devout following of people that say that they live life on a higher standard “being conservative”. He is the perfect reason why I could never join the conservative club (also Palin). Just gross. She had to do it for the money.
Indeed, does this not redefine the phrase "I wouldn't do that for a million damn dollars."
I will NEVER - repeat NEVER EVER buy another Elton John cd or anything he has done EVER again.
I agree with early post – it is clear he will do anything for a handful of pills.
Elton - seriously! You should be ashamed of yourself. While I'll agree, the best way to handle bigots is by educating them - you surely must have known how many people you would be offending by doing this.
SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN- I'M LOOKING FOR THE ADAMS APPLE ON THIS ROOSTER
For a million dollars, I'll perform at anyone's wedding. Don't expect me to be on Rush's berserk radio show, though. I don't care how much they pay me.
Looks like Rush bought some friends.
See this shows that we can all get along for a price. Everyone won here, good.
The proof that Limbaugh is a bigot is in his radio words. He says them publicly - they paint a fairly clear picture.
Nice comments... nothing but hate
I want to the first to start the rumor that Elton is donating the money to the Obama re-election campagin.
I don't know who is more bigoted or small minded, Rush or some of you posters. Sorry that some people have opinions or beliefs that differ from your own.
So wait...what is it we don't like about Rush again?
I think the better question is "WHY WOULD ANYONE MARRY LIMBAUGH?"
Everyone is so quick to call Limbaugh a bigot – no proof to back it up, they just call him that. At the same time, he chose a black host is hosting his multi-million dollar radio program.
It would be funny to have some of these one-line anti-Rush posters actually debate him on the issues... could they do it without insults? Doubt it. Then again, based on some of the posts, they probably don't know what the issues even are.
Good for Elton John. Get paid to sing, put politics aside."
I normally don't get involved with replies but this one just cracked me up. Anyone with half a brain understands biggotry has no skin color itself. Yes Rush had a black guy running his show, um, seems to me that he is just as big a biggot as Rush or maybe moreso. Did you take the time to listen to any of the shows when he was on? Actually I answered my own question when I remembered you mentioned who ran the show while Rush was gone. So you know my previous statement was correct. Know the flavor before you drink the koolaide, or just stay ignorant as most of his listeners. I agree with some of what conservatives believe but this Rush guy, not worth the negative comment I was thinking.
By the way "Steve" whenever YOU want to debate the issues I can tear you a new one just like Rush, since your indicating "The Issues" are what people are missing. Also, name 1 time Rush has debated an issue without an insult?
As to Elton John performing there...he is a musician/performer and should keep HIS POLITICAL BELIEFS out of the duties of his profession, maybe others in society should as well so we can agree there.
sir john? why not madom john mrs john wow he really is out of the closet wow go back to england sirjohn i mean mrs john wow nice earring did your husband buy it for you ? question who is the man you or him
wow he perfomed for a bigot wow john you should be ashamed of your self
i agree. I love Elton John, but I am dismayed that he would do anything for that fat, drug addict/bigot/racist. Maybe if someone put a gun to his head. I am very disappointed.
Elton John is a sell out, in the worst possible sense. To sing at the wedding of a conservative creep who publicly professes his hate for gay people is inexcusable. Elton, you may be richer, but you've just become a has-been old queen.
I am more mad at Sir Elton than Sir Paul. How could you sing for a man that hates everything you stand for? At least SIr Paul gave his opinion, might have been the wrong venue, but he was honest.
Repugnant hypocracy beyond description. Mr. conservative family values now on his fourth mariage with someone almost half his age. When caught with drugs in Rx bottles with other people's names on label and his housekeeper buying controlled drugs in parking lots at his demand the first place he runs to is the ACLU! How he escaped prosecution is beyond belief, but it shows if you are a celebrity and have a great deal of money you can buy the "justice" (sic) you want. Mr. anti-gay "agenda" has one of the most prominent gay men sing at his wedding. I cannot fathom who is worse, Rush or Elton. I guess everyone has his price to sell his dignity and integrity. They both disgust me.
By always thinking the government needs to take care of people, they classify people and leave them always dependent. No wonder that Obama and his ilk get those votes. Living on the government dime, they want more to flow their way.
That will happen when you have a Socialist President.
Why all this negativity on this board.......has anyone thought that they might be friends? Isn't that what freedom is here in both the US and UK.....to decide what one wants to do no matter what anyone else thinks!
I'm sure that both Elton and Rush do not give a "toss" about any of these comments on this board!!
I am amazed limbaugh found even one woman who was willing to marry him,let alone four. There is hope for anyone who hopes to marry someday!
Who wouldn't want Elton singing at thier reception? Elton is a trillion dollar talent, and so a million bucks is a fair price for the gig. ! This shows that conservatives have nothing against gays.
YOu guys don't see the no win Elton was put in. He could either take the job and look like a sale out. Or if he didn't take the job he would be a bigot and Rush could rip him for not being more accepting.
To me this looks worse on Rush, to talk of how Gays getting marriage would ruin it and cause more divorces. Yet he has a Gay man singing at his 4th wedding. Think about it. Rush is the one that looks bed not Elton.
Is he so greedy that he would be a paid monkey for that demagogue? Yech!
Speaking of gagging, I'm gagging over all the hate-filled political comments appearing here on both sides of the political spectrum. I find it cute that the two were brought together, no matter the reason. Sir Reg and Rush are both loud obnoxious and lovable. They'd make a great pair, actually ;)
I think it was very big and a demonstration of humanity for Rush and his beautiful bride to allow Mr. John to sing at their big and special night!
elton john is a BIG hpocrite
Proof that it is just about the $, for both of these men.
Why is this so upseting for people. Elton John is a performer and thats what he does. His life style and beliefs is not why he said yes. Just because people don't agree with other people choice's doesn't mean you can't get along with each other. God say's Love thy neighbor, He did not say agree with your Neighbor all the time. When You LOVE Someone it does not mean You always agree with them. Just because You don't agree with them does not mean You don't LOVE Them! Those are the times you need to say we agree to disagree and put it in God's Hands.
I can't believe he sang at this pigs wedding. Has he no morals? Is he that broke?
Elton supported the Apartheid regime in Sth Africa too, turning his back on the imprisoned Nelson Mandella for money didn't stop him then. How would he have gotten any principals now ?
How truth-telling it is to see all these "tolerant liberals” on parade. The story as to how Elton chose to perform at Rush's wedding is EXACTLY what you all claim as your mission, yet despise when it occurs. No surprise, you never really do mean what you say anyways....do ya ;)
You say you are for free speech, but what you really mean is free speech as long as it lines up with your way of thinking...ie Rush Limbaugh.
You say you are for equal rights, but what you really mean, is to limit the rights of others. ACLU
You say you are for Women’s rights, but what you really mean is as long as she supports abortion on demand or her name isn’t Sarah Palin.
The truth, as indicated by the hateful comments here and on thousands of other blogs like this one, is that Liberals are the most selfish, intolerant, hateful, racist, Godless group of airheads in society.
