Love is the answer. Maybe Rush will turn Left after all and be a builder of bridges, not walls.

I'd be happy to build a bridge, too, especially if somebody paid me a cool million bucks for it.

That's nice. I always thought the two were one and the same person.

Rush: "Let me step into the backroom for a bit and wash up."

Elton steps out a minute later.

A black minister -- one of his best friends -- performed his ceremony and a homosexual serenaded him and his bride. You know, for the preeminent bigot and homophobe, Rush is clearly not doing it right.

Instead of asking, "How could Elton John sing for Rush Limbaugh?" perhaps you should stop listening to what everyone is TELLING you about Rush Limbaugh and start listening to him for yourself.

Obviously, Elton John knows something you don't.

Gee, the new Mrs. Limbaugh seems to really like puffy old men.

You don't Have to be Gay to love this musical genius’s work.

Even a Caveman knows Elton is great!

You can tell who the haters are by reading comments. These two are Friends now. Niether one moved where they stand. A Balck man married Rush. You people are almost all Hypocrites and think everyone has to think like you. No one has to think what you say or what they have to think. I used to think Rush and Elton were different than what they are. OPEN YOUR EYES!
