Elton John and Rush Limbaugh

The title alone makes me laugh. How can those two be in the same sentence without the person speaking literally choking? I know I have to stop and try to digest that when I say it or write it. It seems just incomprehensible they would even be in the same room. Well have I got news for you!

Elton John sang at Rush Limbaugh’s fourth wedding. Yes, you read correctly. The hate monger, Rush Limbaugh, had Sir Elton John, gay man, sing at his wedding, his FOURTH wedding. Let’s look at this a little closer. Rumor has it that Sir Elton was paid $1 million to perform. It still seems bizarre.

Rush Limbaugh is a hate monger. Some of his more famous statements are widely available on the internet. I will not repeat them here because I find them extremely repulsive. Suffice it to say, they are more than explosive. He is a repugnant man.

I find it hard to believe that a man like him can continually say racist and prejudicial things and there are people who listen to him. He obviously does not have a moral compass. He touts family and basic moral values, but he has now been married four times. He bought his way out of a drug conviction in 2003 even though he had previously condemned other addicts, stating they should go to jail. What a hypocrite!

I cannot decide how I feel about Elton John singing at his wedding. If I were him, I would have said no, but maybe he had an ulterior motive. Maybe, just maybe, Elton took the fee he charged and donated it to a worthy cause. Something Rush would disapprove of, like Gay Rights and the NAACP.

There you have it. I’m just sayin’.

  1. It is odd that he had Elton John perform.... Rush has never been one to promote (or even accept) the homosexual lifestyle....

    However, I have to say, I'm a married man. If there's one thing that I've learned over the years, it's that 'if the wife isn't happy, I'm not happy'.... So maybe the new wife wanted Elton John, and Rush just said 'Whatever you want honey....'
