Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday suggested that Hollywood liberals have been plotting for years to release the third and final Batman movie before the election in 2012 with a villain who’s name sounds like GOP hopeful Mitt Romney’s former company, Bain Capital.

“Do you know the name of the villain in this movie?” Limbaugh asked his listeners. “Bane. The villain in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is named Bane. B-A-N-E. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there is now this make-believe controversy? Bain.”

“The movie has been in the works for a long time, the release date has been known — summer 2012 — for a long time,” he added. “Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, what-ever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane?”

"And now there’s discussion out there as to whether or not this was purposeful and whether or not it will influence voters. It’s going to have a lot of people. This movie, the audience is going to be huge. A lot of people are going to see the movie, and it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertaining the pop-culture crowd. And they’re going to hear ‘Bane’ in the movie and they’re going to associate ‘Bain’ and the thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain — not Bain Capital — Romney and Bain that these people will think back to the bad man.”

According to The Unofficial Guide to the DC Universe (http://www.dcuguide.com/chronology.php?name=bane), Bane first appeared in Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1 in January 1993. It wasn’t until November of that same year that Romney took a leave of absence as the CEO of Bain Capital to challenge Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy (D).

In December 2008, Batman director Christopher Nolan told USA Today (http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/news/2008-12-07-dark-knight-nolan_N.htm?csp=34) that he already had “rough outlines” for the third “Dark Knight” film.

Although it was widely assumed Romney would run for president in 2012, he officially announced his exploratory committee to seek the Republican nomination in April 2011.

I guess Limbaugh would say that Hollywood is the bane of Romney's presidential hopes...

Can't wait to see this movie, either tomorrow or Friday.

Rush is a dork of the highest order; I really don't understand why so many liberals listen to him. . .

I think Rush leapt from the skyscraper pane without his cape.

Ah, Rush, Rush... no wonder some parody him as Flush Windbag.

Meanwhile, here's another breathless 'gotcha' conspiracy, foiled. If anything, even funnier than Limbaugh. From HuffPost:

An eagle-eyed conservative blogger recently spotted a photograph of Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) looking cozy with a woman. And not just any woman -- a journalist, in fact.

The blogger, sensing scandal, then contacted the journalist, Connie Schultz, and asked her why she was hugging this elected official she is supposed to cover.

The only problem in this blogger's story? Schultz is married to the senator.

Schultz runs an active Facebook feed and on Tuesday, she put up an email exchange she had with a conservative blogger who was "doing an expose on journalists in the elite media who socialize with elected officials they are assigned to cover."

Schultz replied to the blogger that not only does she often hug Brown, she kisses him too.

Best movie of the summer I'm betting!

Will the Batman be broken by Bane? Will Azrael be the new Batman? Will Mitt watch the movie? Inquiring minds want to know!

The quote Tall Boy posted reminded me of the kerfluffle that happened when the movie Avatar came out. Some conservatives were upset that the movie portrayed big business and the military in an unflattering, anti-environment, anti-indigenous peoples way (which it did, I guess) and how that message was going to damage and corrupt our youth...or something like that anyway.

Anyone remember that?

I thought not....

I remember thinking Avitar was a rip off of Fern gully...........

...and they're both rip offs of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (the book...NOT the recent movie)

Mostly because so many cons do. He echoes all over the place round here.

That's what they said about Hitler. All liberals need to listen to Rush.
