Two Weddings, a Divorce and 'Glee'

By FRANK RICH
June 11, 2010

THOSE of us left off the guest list could only fantasize about Rush Limbaugh's nuptials last weekend. Now cruising into marriage No. 4 - an impressive total for a guy not quite 60 - Rush staged a lavish luau at the Breakers in Palm Beach. The revelers included what some might regard as the Rat Pack from hell - Sean Hannity, Rudy Giuliani, James Carville and Clarence Thomas. The scriptural readings remain a mystery. But we did learn the identity of the pop deity anointed as the wedding singer. That would be Elton John, whose sole, albeit second-class, wedding was a civil union with David Furnish in 2005.

Why would America's right-wing radio king hire an openly gay entertainer to star at his wedding? And why would one of the world's foremost AIDS activists sing Can You Feel the Love Tonight for a gay-baiting provocateur who has trivialized AIDS and speculated that same-sex marriage could lead people to marry dogs? Sir Elton's fee was reported to be a cool $1 million. Which goes to show that pop music and cash have the power to make even stranger bedfellows than politics.
