Elton John Performs for Rush Limbaugh Wedding
Live Street Journal ^ | 06/06/2010

Posted on 06/06/2010 1:52:39 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

I can’t stop asking myself how did Elton John,gay pop icon, ended up performing at at Rush Limbaugh’s 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 doesn’t seem to be a problem for them. Kathryn Rogers said she is “sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age.”

I’m guessing Elton John couldn’t 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

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20391620,00.html

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.”

Like the hypocrite Sting taking $4M to sing for a communist dictator (despite Sting's support of Amnesty Intl), "elton the tiny flaming dancer" sold out for money and played for a noted conservative icon.

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 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.

Goodbye Rush

For a million dollars, Elton John would probably even have sex with a woman.

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?”

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

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.

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).

I hope Rush can find real marital happiness this time, which, at 59, is probably his last chance. Having stridently liberal, proudly gay singer Elton John perform at the wedding can be looked at two ways.

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


Posted: December 01, 1999
1:00 am Eastern

By Julie Foster
© 2010 WorldNetDaily.com

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.”

If gay guys were not allowed to be wedding planners, caterers, etc., the entire wedding industry would collapse. Trust me on this.

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.
