Rush Limbaugh to marry into presidential family (but will not be Bill Clinton's son-in-law)

06-04-limbaugh

No, Rush Limbaugh didn’t break up Chelsea Clinton’s upcoming nuptials or anything.

But he is marrying into a presidential family this weekend.  Although it’s been a long, long, long time since they’ve occupied the Oval Office (actually never since it was created in 1909).

Limbaugh is marrying West Palm Beach, Fla. resident Kathryn Rogers on Saturday.  Rogers reportedly is a direct descendant  of President John Adams.  You know, the oft-overlooked commander-in-chief who was – on a grand scale – unknown, or at least unappreciated, until David McCullough’s book on the second president a few years ago.

What’s known about Saturday’s wedding? Well....

....Very little.  You won’t see any clues on his website.  It has the equivalent of a “gone fishing” stamp on it.

"El Rushbo will be out until Tuesday, June 15,” it reads.

Just bits and pieces have leaked out.  Like an e-mail from Limbaugh’s show to the Palm Beach Post.

“We try to live our lives as normal people,” Limbaugh told the 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.”

Oops.  Well, at least we’re not circling over the ceremony in a helicopter or anything.

What’s the scoop on his future wife?

She’s got a cool job.  According to the Post, she works for the Super Bowl as a “V.I.P. Liaison.”

And President Clinton digs her.  Well, at least we think he could.  Back in 2007, while recounting
his first meeting with Clinton,  Limbaugh discussed the president’s interest in his female companion.  The timeline matches up anyway.  They began dating in 2007.

“I enjoyed it,” Limbaugh said of his meeting Clinton. “I enjoyed it -- especially when I looked over and I saw the former president intently chatting up the woman that I was with. (Laughing.) It was cool.”

By the way, if you want to congratulate the couple, the guys over at Gawker will be flying a banner over the site of the wedding tomorrow.  They want to know what to say on the banner.  Got an idea, click here.

Most guys in his position would just take up sex with the women who do it with no strings attached these days. I guess he really is somewhat conservative.

Oh, Rush. I sure hope you've figured out what went wrong with the three prior marriages. Otherwise, this one will fail, too. Choose wisely, treat kindly.

Who cares?..really..seriously..

Tsk, tsk. A picture of Rush holding up his left wing? The Times they are a changin'.

GOOD FOR RUSH!! HOPE THIS ONE KEEPS FOR HIM IF NOT NEXT TIME HE NEEDS TO GO FOR A 24 MONTH OPEN ENDED LEASE OF THE GAL.

**What do you know. Rush grows a beard.

Is the girl completely out of her mind?

I'm sure she is marrying him for his hot body and fine face.

rush limbaugh is not moral he is an embaressment to the republican party hes a drug addict and a womanizer i sure hope ms rodgers takes him for every thing hes got and kicks him to the curb

I thought he was leaving the country if the Health Bill passed ??
She better get use to the fact he never keeps his word.

i lived in sacramento when rush started his radio show there.that bashing of the hard working folks in rio linda gets old.there's no shame in being poor.good luck,lady;you'll need it

Like all of us, Rush just wants some happiness. If you don't like his political opinions, fine. I would be willing to say that love is an even more difficult game. It makes politics look like tea and cookies. He'll have to get divorced a couple of extra times to beat Larry King.

Congratulations to Rush and his bride. I wish them the best. I have learned so much from listening to Rush. I can only wish him happiness.

How many times? Conservative talk show host? Family man?

CONGRATULATIONS MR LIMBAURGH &YOUR NEW BRIDE!!!!!....
YOU ARE THE MAN......RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON !.
GOD BLESS YOU & YOUR NEW FAMILY. HAVE A WONDERFUL LIFE TOGETHER.
FROM YOUR FAN LISTENER.
RON & SHELLY...........ORANGE, CA.

Good for him! I wish him and his wife the best.
