RUSH: I have to say this, I just saw something on TV that reminded me. Tomorrow, in Great Britain, a big concert for the Queen. The Jubilee. They had the big thing yesterday with all the boats on the River Thames.
Tomorrow is June 5th. Does that date ring a bell for any of you — June 5th? No? How quickly people forget. June 5th, right, Snerdley, right. June 5th, tomorrow, is going to be two blissful years for me. June the 5th. Do you happen to know who performed at my wedding? Do you remember, Snerdley? Correct. Sir Elton John performed at Kathryn’s and my wedding two years ago tomorrow. And who is performing for the Queen tomorrow on the same day? Sir Elton John. Sir Paul McCartney and so forth and Sir Stevie Wonder, but Sir Elton John is the headliner. I thought that I would point this out. Sir Elton performed at my wedding before doing anything for the Queen.
Anyway, back to Clinton, or did you have something in there that you wanted to add, some snarky comment? What’s the snarky comment? Go ahead and hit me with the snarky comment. How much did the Queen have to pay to get Elton? Typical snarky comment. Most staffers would have been summarily fired after asking that kind of question. Even though I invited the question, most staffers would be summarily dismissed asking such a question rooted in insubordination. “How much did the Queen have to pay?” We don’t know. We really don’t know. Doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter. It happened. It’s in the history books and it’s taking place on the exact two-year anniversary.
RUSH: I’ll tell you something else. The Queen gave Elton John a Knighthood. I didn’t have to do that. I didn’t have to come up with some ceremonial award or anything in order to secure the performance, the appearance of Elton John at the wedding.
