Without capitalism, Elton wouldn’t have performed at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding and Rush wouldn’t have been in the position to pay that much for the evening’s entertainment. Capitalism: It can bring people from all walks of life together.
I congratulate Rush and Kathryn, and also tip my Detroit Tigers cap to Elton John for performing at the wedding, because he’s got to know he’s going to take some heat for this in his left-leaning, artsy, environmentalist, gay-activist circle of pals — most of whom would gladly accept a million bucks from George W. Bush to tap dance on a floor made of California Redwood and elephant tusk or take whacks at a piñata in the likeness of Harvey Milk that Roger Ailes stuffed with cash. But they’d never admit it.
I'm calling bullshit on the whole idea that Limbaugh actually wanted Elton John to play at his wedding - it's clearly a calculated move in order for Rush to have some peripheral material for his show after his honeymoon is over. Also, I have to scold Elton a bit for actually accepting this offer. Is he really that hard up for cash that he's going to be associated with this clown? And to Doug Powers' insistence that anyone would accept money to do the things that he's describing, he's fooling himself if he thinks that everyone on the Left would accept such an offer - it's called integrity. And, as much as I hate to say it, it appears that Elton John wasn't able to exercise enough of it to say "hell no" to the man that is likely to besmirch his name as soon as he gets back on the microphone.
