It’s official. Breaking news in the Paris/Britney age. Rush Limbaugh (not that he’s anything like Paris and Britney–I know and like the brilliant and insightful Rush a great deal) introduced his sexy new girlfriend to the world.
For years, liberals have accused Rush of being “intolerant” or “bigoted.” But if his new girl–Kathryn Rogers–is any indication, he’s far more tolerant than they are. This is clearly a “mixed” relationship, as she worked in fundraising for the evil empire of the United Nations–UNICEF. Hopefully, Rush has helped her see the light since then.
But it sounds like she’s not exactly a conservative:
She confesses they “do talk about politics.”
“We don’t have arguments, but I have my own opinions.”
Well, they do have football in common. Rush is a tremendous football fan and very knowledgeable about the game, the reason he was so popular on ESPN and should still be on the network. She works for the South Florida Superbowl Host Committee. But, uh-oh, her dad went to school with Rush nemesis John McCain. If she’s a McCainiac, it could be interesting.
I’m surprised Rush–usually wisely mum about his private life–discussed this with the media. But it’s better to “own” your story than have someone else report on it “their” way.
Donald Trump and Al Franken, eat your hearts out.
How long until David Brooks and Frank Rich write about this? How long until jealous, ugly feminists from the Hillary first wives club attack? 3-2-1 . . . .
