Rush Limbaugh Wedding

Rush Limbaugh wedding: Will his bride love his cars?
As Rush Limbaugh weds today for the fourth time , we're suspecting that his new 33-year-old bride will have a lot of fun with the bevy of cars that her wealthy liberal-hating husband keeps around.
In an in-depth profile in the New York Times Magazine two years ago, El Rushbo talked about some of them, but didn't exactly elaborate on what they were:

"Anticipating a question," Limbaugh said when we pulled into the garage of his secluded beachfront mansion in Palm Beach, "why do I have so many cars?"

I hadn't actually been wondering that. Very rich people tend not to stint on transportation. For example, we drove to the house from the studio, Limbaugh at the wheel, in a black Maybach 57S, which runs around $450,000 fully loaded. He had half a dozen similar rides on his estate.

"I have these cars for two reasons," Limbaugh said. "First, they are for the use of my guests. And two, I happen to love fine automobiles."

As we noted last year when Limbaugh was attempting to buy an ownership stake in the St. Louis Rams, he didn't always drive super-luxury cars:

After leaving college, he struck out on his own in a 1969 Pontiac LeMans, the Times notes. He started as a disc jockey and only later became the king of conservative talk radio.

The last time most people saw Limbaugh behind the wheel was in his appearance on NBC's doomed prime-time Jay Leno Show last year, before Leno returned to late night. Limbaugh drove around a test track in a Ford electric car and not only ran over, but also backed over, an effigy of former Vice President Gore, the global warming opponent.

"No, I'm not going to buy an electric car," he told his radio listeners the next day. "I did like it. It was fun to drive. The pick-up is not quite what you would expect and when you change gears, it takes awhile, like a second-and-a-half for the gears to engage." And no, he said, electric cars won't save the planet.
