Family Guy is back for a new season. Family Guy quotes are still hilarious.

We expect that last statement to ring even truer than usual next weekend when Rush Limbaugh comes to the Quahog Mall for a book signing and a certain member of the Griffin family decides to go down there and tear him a new one.

Here's a photo of Rush's animated likeness with Brian the liberal dog:

Rush and Brian

This canine has some alternate uses for Rush's prose.

Love him or loathe him, it's great to see that Limbaugh, who married Kathryn Rogers this summer, has the sense of humor necessary to appreciate Family Guy.

Rush Limbaugh's wedding in June garnered a lot of attention.

First off, his new wife, Kathryn Rogers, is beautiful and they seem really happy together. We wish the radio host and his bride nothing but the best in life.

Much of the buzz surrounding the nuptials in Palm Beach, Fla., stemmed from the fact that Elton John personally performed at the occasion. He really did.

The singer's partner, David Furnish, confirmed that Elton John, a gay liberal, sang at the conservative activist's ceremony, making for a truly odd scene.

Now there are pictures proving that the scene existed: Rush posted them himself on Facebook! Famous media and political figures ... they're just like us.

Rush Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn Rogers, was the center of attention - but when Elton John serves as your wedding singer, he's guaranteed to get his share as well.

Of course, the fact that Rush reportedly paid $1 million for Elton's performance - all of the proceeds going to charity - might help smooth over any differences.

Gushing comments abound on Limbaugh's Facebook page, such as:

  • "Two American Winners! God Bless and Congrats!"
  • "What a classy wedding for a CLASSY couple."
  • "Great pictures Rush, It's good to see you both so happy!
  • "Congrats Rush .... Kathryn is so out of your league :)".

LOL at that last one ... sorry Rush. For many more pics from the beautiful wedding, click here. Then follow this link to become a fan of THG on Facebook!

Plenty of people were surprised that Elton John recently received an invite to sing at Rush Limbaugh's wedding. Elton John himself was definitely on that list.

"To put it in Elton's exact words, when he got the invitation, he was 'a little surprised,'" his partner David Furnish told People on Sunday at the Tony Awards.

But, John also the genuine, sincere invite as a change "to go where people wouldn't expect me to go" and said "'Life is about building bridges, not walls.'"

He did just that, performing as Rush married Kathryn Rogers.

"And maybe if I can make a great impression," Furnish quoted his longtime partner as saying, "some people might even change their perspectives on life."

Elton John and Rush Limbaugh make an unlikely couple of friends, but genuine ones just the same. The singer donated his $1 million fee for the event to charity.

John told him it was a beautiful event and Limbaugh and his bride "were incredibly gracious and very welcoming and very sweet and very appreciative."

"Elton, during the night made cracks: 'I suppose you all wonder why I'm here tonight?'" says Furnish. "But ultimately, it's like an olive branch, I guess."

By all accounts, John and the couple got along well. "I wasn't there, but from everything Elton told me, Rush and his bride were charming and welcoming."

"They said they want to come and have dinner with us in England, if they pass through in their travels. We have to bring the world together, not apart."

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh is a married man again, and outspoken gay rights advocate Elton John helped ring in his wedding to Kathryn Rogers!

Elton serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh and Rogers at the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Fla.

The couple met six years ago, while Kathryn Rogers, 33, was running a charity golf tournament and Rush Limbaugh, 59, was going through his third divorce.

The Palm Beach Post reports that guests included Karl Rove, Fred Thompson, George Brett, Sean Hannity, Rudy Giuliani, James Carville and Clarence Thomas.

Elton John, however, was perhaps the most notable, given his ideological differences with Rush. Then again, his $1 million fee for the evening goes a long way.

ODD COUPLE: Can't say we saw this ne coming.

A million bucks is pretty steep, but did Rush and Kathryn get a discount? Reuters says that of all wedding singers, John is among the most expensive worldwide.

The music icon charges up to "$2 million for private performances, with all earnings from private concerts going to his charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.”

Yes, his AIDS foundation. Remember last October 2009, when Limbaugh compared the disease to swine flu in the way both were being "hyped"? That crazy Rush.

Or in 2007, when Limbaugh said other, equally incorrect, equally reprehensible things about AIDS? Elton John could have charged the full $2 million, you'd think.

Anyway, congratulations to Rush and Kathryn Rogers! Hopefully she sticks around the radio magnate longer than his previous three wives, and he's feeling better.

Despite his hospitalization a few days ago, Rush Limbaugh says there's nothing wrong with his heart. Or the nation's health care system, for that matter.

The conservative talk show host just couldn't resist turning his own health problems into a political dig at a New Year's Day news conference in Honolulu.

Rush, who suffered chest pains that landed him in a Hawaii hospital Wednesday, said Friday that tests revealed nothing medically wrong with his heart.

"The pain was real, and they don't know what caused it," Limbaugh said.

Rush Limbaugh: I'm fine - and so's the system!

Doctors said he did not have a heart attack and he doesn't suffer from heart disease, however, and he says he is remaining cautious after the scare.

Turning from himself to politics, Limbaugh declared yesterday that he got the best health care in the world "right here in the United States of America."

Politicizing one's own heart problem? Well, would you expect less?

"I don't think there's one thing wrong with the United States health system," Limbaugh said, referring to Congress' massive overhaul of the system.

Here's wishing Rush a speedy recovery.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Hawaii hospital after suffering chest pains on Wednesday, according to numerous reports.

Paramedics responded to a call for help at 2:41 p.m. local time at the Kahala Hotel and Resort, a Hawaii TV station reported early this morning.

The 58-year-old Rush, who has an army of 20 million listeners, was taken to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition, station KITV said.

Limbaugh's lawyer, Roy Black, told CNN he couldn't confirm reports that he had a heart attack but said he was "concerned" about Limbaugh.

Rush Limbaugh reportedly suffered a heart attack yesterday.

The popular talk show host was vacationing for several days in Hawaii and was seen playing on a golf course nearby. It is unclear if he is still in the hospital.

Limbaugh has increasingly been seen as a key leader in the Republican Party, and a top-rated voice on radio for years who earns up to $50 million a year.

A rep from his program said in a statement: "Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains."

More information to come as the story develops ...

You could call it a Rush to judgment. Eh, eh?

It was too easy: Some obscure blogger "unearths" some pages of President Obama's college thesis. A thesis with gems for the haters: Obama hates the Constitution, etc.

The report supposedly originated from Joe Klein of Time.

The author really was an obscure blogger, but one who wrote a satirical post about the thesis, citing Klein's "discovery." Rush Limbaugh went on to quote from the supposed thesis on his radio show, believing it was legit. That's a good satire.

In reality, the joke post, which claimed Klein had gotten his hands on 10 pages of student Obama's college thesis, was a total hoax and is not true in the least.

However, unlike Balloon Boy, it was not concocted in the hopes of this happening. And some will argue that it duped Rush and others because it's so realistic.

El Presidente

Rush Limbaugh got punked by a satirical blog purporting to have seen Barack Obama's college thesis. On a side note, Rush is an interesting name for such a large fella.

Believable or not, Rush was definitely had by the fake thesis.

Supposedly titled "Aristocracy Revisited," the faux thesis excerpt revealed the president had "doubts" about the "so-called founders" of our great country.

Juicy. Except not true.

Limbaugh discovered halfway through his show that he'd been had, but defended himself by saying, basically, the thesis felt true. That'll work for his "fans."

Joe Klein himself even jumped in, calling the report "nonsense" on his blog, and another blogger who thought the Obama thesis hoax was real also apologized.

For a humble post to go from an entry on a humor blog to major media outlet sure seems impressive. Someone ought to write a thesis or commentary on it.

Say what you will about Rush Limbaugh (and we have a feeling you will have no shortage of things to say), the conservative radio host does not mince words.

Rush devoted much of one of his shows this week to a tragic incident where a white teenager was beaten up on a school bus by an African-American teenager.

The attack was horrible and is being investigated by local police, but Rush Limbaugh seized upon it to pontificate about what he feels it is indicative of:

President Barack Obama spreading racism against white people.

According to the St. Louis-Dispatch, police say the beating was not racially motivated, and only transpired once the teenager chose the wrong seat to sit in.

After a caller phoned in and told Rush Limbaugh he did not think the beating was because of race, the blowhard responded with the following statement:

Rush Limbaugh Pic

Rush Limbaugh sure knows how to blow smoke.

"I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that's the lesson we're being taught here. Kid shouldn't have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses - it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama's America."

To be fair, Rush was probably only hyperbolizing and rambling to make his point and not really calling for segregation. Maybe. But it got worse, as Limbaugh continued, inexplicably comparing homosexuality with racism:

"If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable? Sorry. I mean, this is the way my mind works. Apparently now we don't choose racism, we just are racists."

"We are born that way. We don't choose it. So shouldn't it be acceptable, excuse - this is according to the way the left thinks about things."

This is a man who also thinks John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter was his wife Elizabeth's fault, so you have to consider the source.

Well that's that. More importantly, is Rush on Team Taylor or Team Kanye?

It takes a pretty huge jackass to attempt to turn John Edwards into the victim after sleeping with Rielle Hunter and then covering it up.

Not to worry, though: Rush Limbaugh is up to the task.

On the August 12 broadcast of his national radio show, Rush Limbaugh said of former Sen. John Edwards' extramarital affair:

"I've got a theory about the motivations ... We know - we've been told that Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards... Ergo, if Elizabeth Edwards is smarter than John Edwards, is it likely that she thinks she knows better than he does what his speeches ought to contain and what kind of things he ought to be doing, strategy wise? Could it have been her decision to keep going with the campaign? In other words, could it be that she doesn't shut up? That's as far as I'm going to go."

But it wasn't as far as he went.

Rush Limbaugh later added, "It just seems to me that John Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk."

In case it wasn't clear what he meant, Limbaugh elaborated in a subsequent segment: "My theory, that I just explained to you about why - you know, what could have John Edwards' motivations been to have the affair with Rielle Hunter, given his wife is smarter than he is and probably nagging him a lot about doing this, and he found somebody that did something with her mouth other than talk."

Wow.

To sum up, the blowhard (who's thrice divorced, BT-dubs) believes that if Elizabeth Edwards channeled her inner Antonella Barba more often, John would never have strayed into the arms of Rielle Hunter. It's an interesting theory.

We could go on for pages about this, but instead, we'll turn it over to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. Follow the jump for his take on Rush ...

While Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were trading barbs during a recent CNN debate, political pundit Rush Limbaugh was trading smooches with his new girlfriend.

The conservative talk show has has confirmed to The Palm Beach Post that he's dating Kathryn Rogers, director of VIP relations for the South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee.

"We met four years ago when Kathryn worked for [golfer] Gary Player. There was a charity tournament. She was rounding up the celebrities to participate in the event. She called me and I played," Limbaugh said. "We've stayed in touch since and started dating in the summer."

Reportedly, Rogers also accompanied Limbaugh down the red carpet at a Miami Beach charity dinner for Alex Rodriguez' AROD Family Foundation last weekend. We assume Cynthia Rodriguez was there, too.

"Rush is an incredibly great guy. Very different from what people think," Rogers told the newspaper.
