I just read that Rush Limbaugh got married to his long time girlfriend Kathryn Rogers. I hope he has some kids, we need more like him.

Congrats to him.

Unsurprisingly though, the news reads more like a liberal's opinion piece than a news report. Of course, that is the case with most "news" nowadays.

I noticed the snide remarks about his allegedly "anti gay" remarks (which I do not recall hearing), and the amazing pairing between him and Elton John. EJ was getting well paid, though, and probably never heard the (probably nonexistent) anti gay comments. Yes, Rush agrees with most people that marriage should be defined (beyond thousands of years of tradition) as between a man and a woman, but that's not "gay bashing". He has homosexual callers, and treats them like anybody else.

And we'll also have to hear about the alleged "hypocrisy" of a "family values conservative" who has been divorced multiple times, painkiller addiction, etc etc.

It's like that joke about feminism, adapted: "if a conservative does anything in the forest, and there are no liberals around, is he still a hypocrite?"

You nailed it.

I wrote a nice piece on gay marriage once. There was not one hint of malice in it. I discussed how gays can love children as much as anyone, and how they deserve the same rights and should be treated decently as human beings.

I then said that while gay men can be great fathers, they can't be mothers, and while lesbian women can be great mothers, they can't be fathers. I explained that the issue of causing more children to be raised absent a mother or father is the reason I would hesitate to redefine marriage.

I was quickly labeled a bigot, hate monger, and a fascist wanting a religious theocracy. Of course, their name calling qualified for intellectual discussion, my concerns were hate.

Limbaugh was featured in a liberal hit piece (I think by Eugene Robinson) about how it is conservatives who stoop to name calling. Their killer quote was where he called Obama a socialist. Of course, calling Rush a neo-con is based on his positions, but socialist is calling names.

Anyways, rant done. :) Congrats to Rush and his bride. I wish them the best.

To all,

Yes, I noticed the biased slant against Rush. I guess a liberal rag can't stand the thought that he's happy.

If there is one thing they hate more than a happy conservative, it is a happy conservative with a beautiful woman.

I wonder why Rush is getting married. As the article notes, this would be his fourth marriage. Why does he think it's going to turn out differently this time?

Randian, Why don't you call him up and ask him when he gets back? Better yet, why not simply wish good things for them?

Rush has frequently stated that he doesn't want kids of his own. However, there are a lot of parents who've raised their kids while listening to Rush. They call them "Rush Babies". They have their own Facebook page among other things.

According to Wikipedia, a Rush Baby is someone who grew up listening to Rush Limbaugh. However, there is a lot more to it than that. Rush Babies typically are introduced to Rush at a young age and are greatly influenced by El Rushbo. Together we form the next generation of conservatives. Rather than be constantly angry about politics, Rush Babies have learned from Rush to have a sense of humor about it all.

I think his sense of humor is one of the reasons why Rush is so hated. Nothing cuts to the bone like ridicule and no one illustrates the absurd ideas of liberalism as well as he.

Rush has lots and lots of money. Women want lots and lots of money and can be very convincing.

I hope I'm wrong.

But I don't think so.

Hopefully my post above will not be deleted. I am going to bookmark it for several years in the future.

Women are women.

I pegged the stewardess who married Lee Iococca (the Ford then Chrysler boss in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan). He paid for her place in New York for 9 months - she refused to move to a suburb of Detroit (Bloomfield Hills) because it was icky - and then got $3 million after only 9 months of that drama.

I didn't have Internet access at that time, but I set it down by various people.

No one really cared, and no one will really care with this one.

But this women doesn't deserve the money she is going to manipulate out of him.

From a strictly image point of view, Rush is paralleling Tom Leykis - a large man, married four times, unbothered by legal or social challenge, and undisputed master of his corner of the media world. I like both of them quite a bit.

I was just thinking this afternoon about why Rush would get married now. I believe the new Mrs. Limbaugh is about 33 years old. That's an age where a woman has to decide whether she is going to have children or not. I suspect she decided she wanted or needed to have kids, and Rush decided that he wanted or needed to keep her around (and maybe he even decided he might not be a terrible father).
