Limbaugh's gay slipup


Rush Limbaugh, who has come to fame through, among other things, a radio show, became the target of immense media scrutiny yesterday as he tied the knot with his girlfriend in Palm Beach, Florida.

Limbaugh has been under particular scrutiny, however, about his employment of Elton John, the openly gay pianist and vocalist, to sing at his wedding reception - reportedly for a price as high as one million US dollars.

Ordinarily, this would have been perfectly acceptable and normal - but this was Rush Limbaugh. It is rather hard to let such an event go by without reminding ourselves that Limbaugh is most popular and well known for his blatantly conservative and anti-gay commentary of politics and current affairs.

The Palm Beach Post reported that there was a 26-year difference between Limbaugh and his newly-wed wife.
