No, the above headline is not a gag.

Not only did Rush Limbaugh get married this past weekend in a semi-secret ceremony, the reception entertainment was provided by the ideologically challenged British rocker Elton John.

Sir Elton is no devoted dittohead, but he was paid a million bucks for the performance.

Hopefully, Rush and Elton will influence each other for the better. John could use some of that patented conservative soul that Rush exudes. And Rush could use a pair of oversized sunglasses.

Rush married longtime girlfriend Kathryn Rogers at The Breakers luxury resort in Palm Beach, Fla. Karl Rove, Rudy Giuliani, and Sean Hannity were among the gathering of friends and relatives.

In reporting on the story, the mainstream media have been their usual snarky selves. Rush’s previous marriages have saturated the coverage, and so, too, have predictions of a dire future for the newlyweds.

But he has proved nayasayers wrong before. Before Rush was let go from his gig back in the 1970s as a Pittsburgh radio station DJ, he was reportedly told by management that he would never make it as an on-air talent and should consider going into sales.

Everyone knows how that turned out.

Congrats and best wishes to Rush and Kathryn!
