Conservative radio royalty Rush Limbaugh plans to marry this weekend, Zev Chafets, author of "Rush Limbaugh, An Army of One," confirmed to me on my podcast Wednesday.
Two independent sources in the conservative movement confirmed the information.
According to Chafets, Limbaugh, 59, plans to marry Kathryn Rogers, whom he describes as a "lovely" young woman in her early 30s.
Interestingly, Rogers' father attended the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., with John McCain, and her sister attended school in Hawaii with Barack Obama.
Rogers works for the NFL, coordinating events for the Super Bowl. The two reportedly met when she was working for golfer Gary Player.
According to Chafets, the Limbaugh family – especially brother David (also a conservative commentator) -- worry that Rush has no children.
This will be Limbaugh's fourth marriage, according to His last marriage was in 1994 to Marta Fitzgerald, an aerobics instructor who was married when Limbaugh met her. Their wedding ceremony was presided over by Limbaugh's friend, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. According to Chafets, it was Fitzgerald who first pursued Limbaugh by messaging him on CompuServe. The marriage ended in 2004.
On Tuesday's radio show, Limbaugh announced he would be off the air until June 15, but did not mention marriage. A note on his Web site Thursday says, "El Rushbo will be out until Tuesday, June 15."
According to Chavets, Rush begged his friends and family to stop him if he ever tried to get married again.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
