Unfortunately Rush has always been uncomfortable talking about traditional sexual values — even though our welfare state is fueled by unwed motherhood and young thugs growing up without fathers. He made his name with “caller abortions” early in his career but has steered clear more recently. On his shows, he does not oppose gay marriage with much enthusiasm and appears eager to switch the subject to financial or economic topics.
Perhaps he is afraid the the liberals will point to his four marriages. Maybe he gets pressure from his nitwit wives, including the one who hired Elton John to sing at their wedding.
I’ve noticed the same thing over the years. I sometimes wonder when he tells conservatives liberals think we are all “hay seed hicks with gun racks in the back”(nearly a direct quote) if that’s precisely what he himself is thinking as much as them.
