Kathryn Rogers: 6 Things to Know About Rush Limbaugh's Bride-To-Be

Rush Limbaugh will reportedly marry his fiancée, the blond, beautiful, considerably younger Kathryn Rogers, this weekend at his Palm Beach estate. The couple is keeping their plans close to their respective chests, Limbaugh announcing via his website only that he's taking off until June 15 to get a puppy. (The Limbaughian equivalent of "hiking the Appalachian Trail"?) These efforts have not been entirely successful.

As hush-hush as the wedding plans have been, just as little is known about Rogers herself. But here's what Surge Desk managed to dig up:

1. She's well-trained for her new role. Rogers works as a VIP Liaison, which means she has extensive experience dealing with cranky celebrities. Reportedly working for the NFL now, she's been at the last two Florida Superbowls, and was running a golf tournament fundraiser in 2004 for golfer Gary Player's charity when she met El Rushbo, who was getting divorced from wife number three at the time.

2. She's something of a blue blood. Rogers is a direct descendant of John Adams, and her father attended the Naval Academy at the same time as John McCain.

3. She's also got an Obama connection. Her sister allegedly went to school with the future president Obama in Hawaii.

4. She's not averse to PDA. The few pictures of the couple found online show a poised and polished young woman standing with an older male figure who is sometimes kissing her cheek and sometimes grinning childishly beside her -- and, in one shot, planting a big, fat smacker on her in front of a Heritage Foundation banner.

5. She's likes her men well-seasoned. "I grew up so differently, traveling around the world, that I'm sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age," Rogers told Palm Beach Post writer Jose Lambiet in 2008. "Rush has such amazing experience."

6. She does not, by some indications, have history on her side. See: Roxy Maxine McNeely, Michelle Sixta and Marta Fitzgerald.

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.
