Why in the name of sparkly gay unicorns would Elton John play at Rush Limbaugh's fourth, third or inevitable fifth weddings? Because he got paid, bitches, because he got paid. Like a MILLION dollars. He didn't get to be wealthy (his personal wealth is estimated at more than $250 million) by turning down a million dollars here and a million dollars there.
Even if the million dollars is coming from a colossal dick with an addiction to opiates.
I'm sure the fact that Elton and his partner, David Furnish have been together longer than any of Rush's earlier marriages wasn't at all an issue. After 4 Vicodin I'm sure Rush is very hazy about most things, let alone shit that happened 5 years ago or more. Well, except about Monica Lewinsky (OUTRAGE!).
And if Elton did a really good job, maybe Rush will hire him for his next 4 weddings. That would make $5 million from various Rush Limbaugh weddings, and that's real money folks.
Glenn Greenwald at Salon (here) got around to Rush this morning (he's been focused on the Israeli attack on the aid flotilla heading to Gaza):
So as Newt Gingrich does while standing next to his third wife (who, as was true for Gingrich's second wife, was previously known as his "adulterous mistress"), Rush Limbaugh will now crusade for Traditional Marriage with his fourth wife (and counting) at his side. As is so often the case, the Traditional Marriage movement is led by people who discard their wives and get new, younger replacements the way most people change underwear.That's not fair. Most people actually keep their underwear a ridiculous amount of time. I think "car" would have been a better analogy. Those are only good for 4 or 5 years, right?
I was going to look for a snarky Elton John song to post here, but why do that when I can just go to Nona again?
