Posted on 06/06/2010 1:52:39 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
I cant stop asking myself how did Elton John,gay pop icon, ended up performing at at Rush Limbaughs wedding.
Anyway, the act took place in Palm Florida on Saturday night.The guests included celebrities such as Fred Thompson, Sean Hannity, Bush adviser Karl Rove, golfer Tom Watson and Rudolph Giuliani. Did i forget to mention it was a 400 guests wedding?
Limbaugh and Rogers met six years ago at a charity golf tournament. There is a 20 years difference between the two but that doesnt seem to be a problem for them. Kathryn Rogers said she is sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age.
Im guessing Elton John couldnt help it and went for the million bucks. That is the reported $1 million payday for Elton John. But still , having a gay guy performing at your wedding is a bit ..awkward.
Has it occurred to anyone that Kathryn Rogers is big fan of Sir Elton?

Rush Limbaugh Weds for 4th Time, and Elton John Sings
Talk about an odd couple: conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and outspoken gay-marriage advocate Elton John.
But, according to a News Corporation (which owns Fox News) wire report, the Rocket Man, 63, serenaded the 400 guests Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh, 59, to Kathryn Rogers, 33, in the Ponce de Leon ballroom of Florida’s fabled Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Sir Elton’s fee: $1 million, the report notes.
Amid dozens of giant bouquets of white roses, reports the Palm Beach Post, guests at the wedding included former Bush adviser Karl Rove; actor-politician Fred Thompson; former Kansas City Royals slugger George Brett; Fox News commentator Sean Hannity; former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft; former Clinton adviser James Carville and his wife, GOP analyst Mary Matalin; and golfer Tom Watson, among others.
The couple met six years ago, while she was running a charity golf tournament and Limbaugh was in the process of divorcing for the third time.
Rogers is a direct descendant of President John Adams, and her father attended the U.S. Naval Academy with the future Arizona Senator (and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate) John McCain, reports NewsCore.
The wire service also quotes the new bride as saying of the couple’s 26-year age gap: “I’m sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age.”
I’m about as conservative as you get.
I would love to have Elton John singing at my event.
Was Hillary Clinton the flower girl?
Sanitize the piano keyboard,burn the microphone.Can’t be too careful.

No, Harvey Fierstein was.
It's always about the money with these liberal hypocrites!
I get why Elton did it—he needs to cash, the fool has bankrupted himself.
Now how is he going to claim any libtard cred with his pukey little pals?
Rush scores again.
Elton John at Rush’s wedding is going to tick off some libs.
Sheesh, Carville was there,
“”elton the tiny flaming dancer”
LOL. I always tag articles about Sir Elton with the keyword “not a tiny dancer”.
It has been reported that Sir Elton John was paid a cool million for performing at the wedding
Windex the piano and don’t drink out of his glass.
I’m pretty sure Elton is broke as all get out, and needs the payday.
Did she wear white ??
Elton John is a great talent. Many lefty, gay, wierdos are incredibly talented people. If we limit our entertainment to only those who agree with us philosophically, we might as well be Amish.
This reporter is a bigot. Why not have a “Gay Guy” sing at your wedding. Many other media are saying Elton should not sing for Rush because Rush is a homophobe, bigot etc. Rush is most certainly NOT any of those things, but that does not stop the DBM from just saying it and repeating it ad nauseum.
elton the tiny 1 million $ richer flaming dancer
I know now he is not as smart as I thought he was. Its good to know after all these years. I really did think he was very conservative now I know he is not my kind of conservative.
For a million dollars, Elton John would probably even have sex with a woman.
Can it be that Rush is?
Had backstage passes and 18th row seats at the Elton/Billy Joel concert when they played at the Honda Center March 2009! Great concert.
I doubt anyone requested his little-played “The Goaldigger’s Song” at the affair...
“That is the reported $1 million payday for Elton John. But still , having a gay guy performing at your wedding is a bit ..awkward.”
I also hope that she is not another gold digger with LIBERAL tendencies.
Hehehehe. That one got me to but of course James was tagging along with Mary Matalin. It would be and interesting question to ask Rush when he gets back. “How did the conversation go between you and Carville?”
Very attractive, very classy looking lady. Hope it works out for them ...
There are plenty of STRAIGHT MEN, DRUG FREE and CONSERVATIVE MEN available to do what Elton John did.
What the "author" forgot was to capitalize "I".
He was there for the last wedding, too.
Rush is making the lefties his bitches.
Elton has to sing for his supper and cash a check from Rush.
(Rogers father attended the U.S. Naval Academy with the future Arizona Senator (and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate) John McCain, reports NewsCore.)
a Dr. O classmate?
I agree, Id like EJ to sing at my wedding.
I don’t remember him being outspoken with extreme liberal beliefs.
Except for the wanting the right to marry which is logical.
I think it is cool of Rush to hire him and cool of Elton to accept
BTW, his new wife is a descendant of John Adams.
I have no problem interacting with homosexuals on a personal basis and welcome them to the public square as individuals and citizens enjoying the full rights and privileges of the same. Most families, including mine, have homosexual members, or at least ones practicing a homosexual lifestyle.
My objection is to the homosexual political agenda which establishes homosexuals as a protected group, entitled to certain privileges and benefits denied to other members of society and allows self proclaimed leaders of this group to present their views on behalf of the whole. What they choose to do in their bedrooms is no business of mine, but when they want to benefit from the largess of government at my expense, I will do what I can to stop them.
I like Elton John’s music, his fashion sense not so much.
What make him “not smart” in your mind?
As hard a time as Rush and Carville give each other, rumor has it that they are actually good friends (which may be because Rush is so close to Mary Matalin).
As Rush being hypocritical just to have a Big Name perform (for a Big Fee) at his wedding (because Rush can afford the cost) or as Rush being tolerant and open-minded, hiring Elton John for his talent and entertainment value and ignoring his left wing views, which, frankly are mostly irrelevant. I opt to believe the latter.
Yeah, and I agree with you, but is should have been reported thus:
...former GOP analyst Mary Matalin and her husband, Clinton adviser James Carville
Of course, maybe Jimmy has made himself persona non grata by criticizing 0bama over the handling of the BP oil spill.
Nah, I don't really think so either.
Elton John seduces ‘cub scouts’
Lurid stage show draws applause, protests
By Julie Foster

Singer Elton John’s lurid stage performance with six teen-age strippers wearing Cub Scout uniforms, at a gala London event honoring the homosexual rights group Stonewall, is being both applauded and condemned.
The strippers, all 18- and 19-year-old professionals, were wearing Cub Scout uniforms and hats when Elton John took the hand of each “scout” and introduced them to the VIP audience at London’s Albert Hall. Following their introduction, the teen-agers began to strip off their uniforms — which are worn by real scouts between the ages of 7 and 11 — revealing “tight undies,” according to the British Internet publication The Sun.
The striptease was performed to the song, “It’s a sin,” by the notorious homosexual band, the Pet Shop Boys, and included such suggestive behavior as strippers kneeling before Elton John in obscene poses while grabbing their crotches.
Child and family advocacy groups were outraged at the display.
George Michael, in black, joins Elton John on stage, for parody of homosexual sex with “Cub Scouts.”
So are about 50,000 other people.
Is that significant in some way?
Elton John at Rush’s wedding is going to tick off some conservatives and I’m one of them!
If gay guys were not allowed to be wedding planners, caterers, etc., the entire wedding industry would collapse. Trust me on this.
Report: Elton John turned down offer to replace Simon Cowell
Atlanta Journal Constitution (blog) May 12, 2010
Access Hollywood, citing no specific sources, said part-time Atlantan Elton John had turned down $33 million to take over for Simon Cowell
Wrong, it is the gay lib weirdos who control most areas of entertainment and block talent that doesn’t share their views. I’ve seen it. Country music is an exception.
I can’t imagine anyone with a mind being a fan of someone like Elton “the pedophile encourager” John.
Yes, there are two ways of looking at it.
Rush is an unapologetic conservative. Carville makes his liberal point-of-view illegitimate by sucking up to Rush by going to his wedding.
Yes and no.
She has an interesting family heritage and no in the sense that it doesn't make her better than anyone else.
Imagine, hiring someone on the merits of his talent. What a concept!
