Rush Limbaugh - Rush Limbaugh Insists 'Dark Knight Rises' Is An Attack On Mitt Romney

Rush Limbaugh remains steadfast in his belief that Christopher Nolan is taking a swipe at the Republican candidate Mitt Romney in Dark Knight Rises, the Post-Gazette reported yesterday (July 22, 2012). The reason that he thinks this is that the main villain in the movie is called Bane. And 'Bane' sounds the same as 'Bain.' As in Bain Capital, the company whose record was used by the Democrats to attack Romney.
What the radio commentator seems happy to ignore (despite having had these facts pointed out to him) is that Dark Knight Rises has been in development for years. And Bane is quite a central character. It's not as though he was added in at the last minute to reflect current trends in US politics. Oh, and another thing; the character Bane was first introduced into DC Comics' 'Batman: Vengeance of Bane' in 1993. And he appeared in the 1997 movie 'Batman and Robin.' Regardless of these facts, Limbaugh was determined to call Nolan out on the conspiracy. "Do you think it is accidental that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane?" Erm, honestly, Mr. Limbaugh? Yes. Yes, we do think it's a coincidence. In fact, pretty much all of the evidence that we have here suggests that it is, indeed a coincidence.
Limbaugh powered on with his lack of logic, though, spelling out his concerns to listeners: "when they're going to start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, not Bain Capital but Romney and Bain, that these people will start thinking back to the Batman movies, 'Oh yeah, I know who that is!'" And yes, for the record, Limbaugh definitely does thank that Mitt Romney should have been portrayed as Batman. "Batman is Romney. The good guy is Romney," he told Associated Press.
