There's one rule to know about Rush; if his lips are moving he's either lying or being a hypocrite.

He's not the problem, he knows that when he talks about marriages breaking up that he's a hypocrite, the problem is his audience

You might wonder how much $$$$$$$ was paid to this Kathryn woman to even be in the same state as this guy.

I wonder if there's any Oxy's left in his Bathroom cabinet.

He's entertaining. He's funny. He sounds like he's telling "truths" that all the other wimps in the media are too afraid to say. (In other word he taps into the fears and prejudices of his audience and tells them they don't have to feel guilty about those fears and prejudices). He makes convincing arguments. He appeals to people's emotions.

Can't say any of that about NPR, can you?

Elton John Performs at Rush Limbaugh’s Wedding, of All Things | VF Daily | Vanity Fair

"In 2009, Reuters found that of all wedding performers, “Elton John is the second most expensive, charging over $2 million for private performances although all earnings from his private concerts go to his charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.”

His AIDS foundation, eh? The plot thickens: Limbaugh famously does not take AIDS that seriously. In October 2009, he compared the auto-immune disease to swine flu , and complained that both are “hyped”—presumably attempting to express that they are overhyped.

Two years earlier, in 2007, Limbaugh said other, equally incorrect, equally reprehensible things about AIDS: “The condom craze started because it was going to spread to the heterosexual community and so forth. There was never any evidence that it was spreading to the heterosexual community, not sexually anyway, and if you said that, then you were guilty of a hate crime and profiling and discrimination, and all of that.” He later added: “It was time to cough up money for education, and condoms, and cucumbers and all that, and we had rock stars like Bono establish philanthropic careers on the basis of all this, all based on science.”

To laugh at Rush's hypocrisy, take his money and keep laughing all the way to the bank (or an AIDS charity, which seems like a wonderful place for the dough).

I guess he saw it as an opportunity to spread aids around to people that otherwise would never be exposed to it.

I understand everything except the "convincing arguments" bit. If it's filled with flat-out lies, how can it be worth taking seriously? I guess I'm just mystified as to how someone can listen to that quote from Rush about AIDS, for instance, or hear him talk about how gay marriage will ruin the sanctity of marriage when they know full well he's on his fourth one now, and still think that those comments contain anything resembling truth. I'd like to think it's simply a matter of the listener not having been educated on the facts, but that seems too simplistic, since some people who listen to Rush and like him have decent educations. I'm just really confused by that.

To be honest, I've not really listened to much NPR. Bits and pieces here and there, and I'm certainly aware of it, but I haven't really listened to it much.

That's really bizarre that Elton John played at his wedding. I'm guessing cori's reasoning has to be why he did that, 'cause otherwise I'm at a loss to explain his presence there.

That's the irony behind the statement. For some people, that's convincing. They also believe that Obama is Kenyan by birth and that the earth is flat.
