(The Hollywood Reporter)   Rush Limbaugh is just asking questions: Did Obama's handlers invent a time machine, go back to the early 90s and infiltrate DC Comics, and create the Bane character just so voters would associate the name with Bain Capital in 2012?   (hollywoodreporter.com) divider line 185

Yes.

"So this evil villain in the new Batman movie is named Bane. And 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," he continued. "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 -- entertainment, the pop culture crowd -- and they're going to hear Bane in the movie and they're going to associate Bain."

Rush just planted the bug in his listeners ear. Now they'll associate the 2.

And the bolded quote is priceless. Anyone venture to guess who else entertains huge audiences of brain dead people?

Maybe he used the one Romney used to go back and retire from Bain Capital before they laid off all those workers.
 
2012-07-17 08:11:10 PM  
Aren't there many villains named Bane? Seems like a go-to name for a lazy writer trying to think of a bad guy.
 
2012-07-17 08:11:33 PM  
Its as if hes a big, fat idiot..
 
2012-07-17 08:11:58 PM  
That must be the same time machine they used to falsify Obama's birth certificate in the 60s. That time machine gets a lot of use.
 
2012-07-17 08:12:12 PM  
If they weren't thinking about that, they certainly will now. Well done, Mr. Limbaugh!
 
2012-07-17 08:12:35 PM  
This idiocy bears repeating.

Romney is more of a Two-Face comparison, anyway.
 
2012-07-17 08:13:37 PM  
He's back on the happy pills again.

YAY!

Rush did something I can appreciate!

And for the record, he's not "just asking" the question, he's giving wings to this new conspiracy theory... because of course Warner Brothers wants a pinko in office, even though Romney is the one promising to slash corporate taxes... never mind the logic, it will only hurt your head.

To be fair, the first time I heard someone refer to "Bain Capital", my first reaction was that that's a bit on the nose if you're trying to pretend your company isn't evil. Given that, y'know, 'bane' is an English word meaning a personal nemesis and had been for several centuries before comic books were even a thing.

Didn't realize it was someone's name until I saw it in writing and learned the spelling.
 
2012-07-17 08:14:56 PM  
Sounds like El Rushbo is back on the Hillbilly Heroin...
 
2012-07-17 08:14:56 PM  
Rush Limbaugh is brain damaged and I think it's nice that people humor him with a radio show.
 
2012-07-17 08:15:09 PM  
I thought Rmoney would be more of a Penguin character.

I'll bet dollars to doughnuts it was said sarcastacly, and is being reported as though it was said seriously.
 
2012-07-17 08:16:38 PM  
Bruce Wayne is a job creator and thus beyond reproach. How dare Rush question this, is Limbaugh some kind of socialist?

Its a Unicorn. His name is Robert Poulson.

There is no limit to Obama's powers. The only limit is Rush's imagination.

Interesting considering pre-production started in April 2011 and I am sure the script was started at least 6 months before that, before we even knew Romney was running.

Damn you, FartNolanBama!

How did you get all that, subby. All I heard was bubbling farting sounds. Sticky wet bubbles.

To the extent that everything that comes out of his mouth is disingenuous, then you are correct. But read the linked article before you make any bets, because his "character" was 100% serious. He sourced it to the usual "some people" and just ran with it.

Bad idea. I played "Red Alert."

LOL. I would imagine that Limbaugh Listeners are immune to sarcasm as detecting it requires, at minimum, a modicum of common sense with a smattering of intelligence.
 
2012-07-17 08:20:58 PM  
"You know these people. These vague bogeys I describe and you resent" Limbaugh said to idiots with radios.

The same time machine that let Rush go back in time and lance that cyst on his anus so he could proudly serve in the Viet Nam War?

And he's got a pretty good imagination.

"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?" Limbaugh asked his listeners.

That's the one part of his theory that jives. Everyone's known Romney was running since before he officially lost in 2008.

Batman? That's nothing. This conspiracy has been going on lots longer than the early 90's. Hell, Why do you think Tolkien called the one ring, the most evil force in Middle Earth, Isildur's Bane?

No need. Rush retroactively served in the war. He retroactively won several medals, too!
 
2012-07-17 08:25:32 PM  
If it was Nolan's plan to undermine the GOP nominee like this, then the safe bet a few years ago when he started developing this film would be to have named the villain "Wasilla."

Well, because it's a time machine, more than one person can use it at the same...uh... time.

2012-07-17 08:28:03 PM  
According to Rush, Nolan waited to find out who the GOP nominee would be, then wrote, produced, edited, marketed and released a 2 hr and 45 min action film in THREE MONTHS.

Rush tardbaugh, documented to be always moronic 99.9% of the time.

/he knows comic books like every inch of his glorious naked body
 
2012-07-17 08:29:37 PM  
So Rush doesn't own a dictionary?
