Rush Limbaugh + Elton John Became Friends Because They Are Both Fabulously Wealthy

While one is a bonafide hate leader and the other brands himself an AIDS activist, it doesn’t mean Rush Limbaugh and Elton John can’t be friends — and exchange $1 million for a wedding performance. Because when human beings are as rich as these two middle aged men, they automatically travel in the same social circles, and moral codes go out the window. They just get in the way while counting your money. But how did these two gents meet in the first place?

Scene: Luxury Hawaii hotel. Around New Year’s Eve, last year. And Rush is, ahem, rushed to the hospital with chest pains. He survived, of course, but Elton, who was staying at the same hotel, reportedly checked in on the radio host to make sure he was OK, and their friendship blossomed from there.

So did the jokes.
