I wonder what Rush could be compensating for with those oversized bedposts.

What's the point of being a rich white guy if you don't have a stripper pole in every room? Anyway, I'm much more interested in what's in his garage.

Steve's comment while looking at the pictures: "It looks like a Mormon Temple."

So now we can add bad taste to everything else on the list that makes this man worthless...

Does he have any redeeming qualities?

How much you want to bet not one of those books in his office have been read?

I see the reach toward Roccocco in that room. Why stop there, why not go all the way.

it almost makes me feel bad for Rusty.

he's the leader (or one of the leaders) of a group of people united by inchoate resentments that stem from insecurities about personal shortcomings.

and we see it here on his walls.

or,

this is what happens when you don't hire a gay to decorate.

and,

i liked this comment: "You know he said to his hack decorator, "Give me something Plantation-era."

The bathroom has potential. The rest of it is a cross between "garish hotel" and "fake Greek restaurant".

If I were a bachelor with that kind of money, my place would be completely "esconced in velvet" (as George Costanza put it).

Otherwise, it's difficult trying to look down my nose at someone else's $14 million 20th floor 5th Avenue penthouse. But it is comforting to try.

Don't get me wrong, Limbaugh will say anything about anyone. The only limit to what he would say about someone or something is the "7 words" limitation of the FCC. I essentially consider him a radio pornography kingpin. He appeals to the worst parts of our personality and convinces us it is patriotic. He is a big and deserving target.

But I can't deny that I'd be happier than a pig in my own filth if I could live in that penthouse (even if I couldn't change a thing). You know you'd come over for my wine and cheese (Mad Dog and Velveeta) party there if I invited you.

I read recently that Rush had reduced the price

Check out Al Gore's new digs I'm sure it's all 100% eco friendly too

Al and Tipper Gore have picked up a $8.875M luxury getaway in Montecito, CA; a swanky zip code that has attracted big name residents like Oprah Winfrey, Steve Martin, and Kirk Douglas. Records show that the approximately 6,500 sq. foot home boasts 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a large pool house, 6 fireplaces, wood framed french doors, and carved stone detailing throughout.

Conservative radio man Rush Limbaugh is taking a fourth stab at marriage with a weekend wedding to Kathryn Rogers, an events coordinator 26 years his junior, according to various reports.

Limbaugh, 59, will reportedly marry the 33-year-old Rogers at his Palm Beach compound. Though he hasn't confirmed the news, the host asked the media to respect his privacy during this "very special" time in his life.

"We try to live our lives as normal people," Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail to Page2Live.com, the gossip site for the Palm Beach Post. "We do NOT seek media attention, we do not want it, especially for this. It is very special, obviously, and we just don't want any media attention."

Publicly, El Rushbo has said he's taking time off from his job to get a puppy, but his biographer, Zev Chafets, told Politics Daily reporter Matt Lewis that the host was actually tying the knot.

The childless Limbaugh's first two marriages were over by the time he rose to national prominence. His third wedding, to Marta Fitzgerald in 1994, was officiated by his friend, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. They divorced in 2004.

Before beginning his courtship with Rogers in 2007, Limbaugh was romantically linked to then-CNN anchor Daryn Kagan.

According to Page2Live, Limbaugh suffered a heart attack in December on a trip to meet Rogers' family in Hawaii. One other interesting tidbit about her: She's apparently a direct descendant of founding father John Adams.

The nuptials, if confirmed, would come as a bit of a surprise, as Limbaugh has bristled at the notion of marrying for a fourth time. When Chafets asked the host if he was considering marriage with Rogers, he was hesitant.

"If Kathryn and I were to get married, I know they'd go after her. I'm always going to be a villain ... But Kathryn, I don't know how it would be for her, all the gossip and the nastiness. I worry about it."
