Look! It's Rush and Elton John at the big wedding!

A lovely couple. Rush married a woman, though. Maybe next time. If he finds he really wants a Chevy... Camaro.

Everyone asks why Elton John performed at Rush's wedding, but I want to know what he performed. Don't you find all his best songs rather melancholy?

I haven't seen a set list anywhere.

Oh, no---that was parody. Delete, delete!!

One more mildly interesting link about this subject, and it's time for me to do real things instead of Googling Rush Limbaugh's wedding.

If Rush would embrace Islam, he wouldn't have to go through all of those divorces.

Darcy said...

Rush's wife is stunningly beautiful. I hope they're gloriously happy.

I think he's such a great guy, but know nothing about her. I hope they are good to each other.

Elton John looks adorable too. Sweet pics.

You mean $$ trump belief?

After you, Althouse.

Joe said...

Have the divorce odds been posted yet?

Or has Rush given up chasing Larry King's record?

shoutingthomas said...

"The Bitch is Back!!!"

That's not a very good start.

Lem said...

Look, at least she got both her legs..

just saying.

Darcy said...

"Maybe next time."

Or...one could hope they'll be happy and no "next time" need be contemplated.

Nah. That wouldn't be any fun.

I think Rush came this close "---" to being an Elton John instead of a Rush, so this makes a lot of sense - the chubbiness, the theatricality, the search for acceptance, the showmanship...just a matter of a few centimeters. Rush is kind of a drag queen is his own special way.

Roux said...

Katherine is hot... good for Rush. I hope they are very happy together.

edutcher said...

Very few guys like Elton John, much the same as Michael Bolton.

No accounting for taste.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Katherine is hot... good for Rush.

She sure is. Amazing what money can buy ;-)

jamboree said...

The blonde swimmer woman who married the 50-something Prince whatever (can't remember his name - the one who looks like an accountant) a few months back is STUNNINGLY beautiful and hot. This woman is attractive, but only truly hot in the context of Rush's age/looks.

Kensington said...

Hot wife. Attaboy, Rush!

MamaM said...

I don't see "hot" when I look at her, but I'm not clear as to what looking "hot" involves.

She appears to me to be graceful, attractive, and present to the moment.

Althouse, are you hoping that Rush Limbaugh's marriage fails and that there will be a "next time?"

Last summer you and Meade received an outpouring of kind comments and heartfelt warm wishes for a long and happy marriage from many, many commenters on this and other blogs.

And earlier this month those good wishes for your happiness were renewed on this blog in celebration of the first anniversary of your marriage vows.

Perhaps you could show the same grace and class toward the Limbaughs as was shown toward you.

Jonathan Cullum said...

was reading through the Newt link, where he said, "I can't handle a Jaguar right now" and thinking back to the early/mid 90's when Rush would talk about "going to the Steelers game with 'codename Jaguar' " ...

Lem said...

No truth to the rumor shes a 'Who wants to Marry a Millionaire' grad.

Lem said...

In the casino of life she landed a whale ;)

Fred4Pres said...

I did not realize he had Rev. Ken co-officiate. That is cool.

What is interesting is that this was not a huge affair. Okay, for most people a 250 person wedding is on the large size, but it is not that uncommon. Elton John playing to 250 guests is a very small crowd.

Fred4Pres said...

Rev. Ken Hutcherson is very vocal about being against gay marriage. And is very much a social conservative. So I suppose his pick would be deemed a "message" from Rush.

But I suspect the primary reason is because Rev. Ken and Rush are friends and share a love of football (since Rev. Ken played for the Chargers and Cowboys).

Sixty Grit said...

If Ken H. loves football why did he play for the Cowboys and the Chargers?

Kirstin said...

Not all pastors would perform a fourth marriage after three divorces.

peter hoh said...

Kirstin, I delved into some church history during college. I think it was in the 40s that at a convention of the Norwegian Lutheran Church of America, there was a move afoot to defrock a pastor who had officiated at the wedding of the previously-divorced Sonja Henie.

But times have changed, and it's anything goes now, at least for straight people.

peter hoh said...

But can she decorate?

MamaM said...

Can she and Punkin peacefully coexist?

Nels said...

How about Rush gives back one of his four non-procreative marriages so that my gay neighbors, who've been together for fifteen years and have adopted kids, can get hitched?

shoutingthomas said...

No comment thread is complete without somebody whining about those poor gays!

Gosh! They are so oppressed!

Shit! We should immediately... do something for the self esteem of those poor gays... cause I think I just saw one crying! My heart is broken!

Oh, those poor gays!

I suggest a national Assholes are Beautiful Day! For too long have we stereotyped the vagina as the preferred port of entry. Assholes need love too! No shit. Well, maybe just a little.

Today, we liberate the asshole!

Gosh, those poor gays! They ought get anything they want

ewwwwe...moby prick meets moby dick.

Kirstin said...

Of all the arguments in favor of same-sex marriage, I think the lamest is that marriages between men and women often end in divorce.

Pastors are starstruck like everyone else. One of the pastors from the church I used to attend officiated at Kevin Costner's last wedding. My impression was that the rules for actual church members who are getting married were waived for Kevin and his girlfriend.

Trooper York said...

I am not a big listener to Rush because I only listen to the sports station WFAN. But I don't see why you can't just wish him good luck and happiness even if this is his third marriage.

As Michael H said, why not be classy?

JAL said...

So the pastor is a former NFLer.

What's the story on Snerdley? Dudes, he is huge!

Amazingingly unlike anything I had in my minds' eye. (I was thinking tall skinny black nerdy guy ... or someone who looked like Crack.)

And yes, Rush's wife is lovely. May they beblessed.
