It's only 1:30 here. Why do I have to wait so long for the interview?

If TDKR was planned to bring down Romney, that means they were planning on him winning the primary. However, since they obviously started filming well before the primaries were over, TDKR was probably just one prong of a complex attack on all potential primary winners.

My question is, which other movies are out there that would have been good attacks on other potential winners?

Is the Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man a thinly veiled jab at Newt?

Was Snow White and the Huntsman made to boost liberal favorite Jon Hunstman?

Is Total Recall an attempt to re-energize the voters after the failed recall in Wisconsin?

FlashHarry: that's pretty much what dixon said. and he said romney is more like batman - a delusional, secluded billionaire.

Well, without the conviction, scruples, iron-will, intelligence, discipline, sense of justice, and batarangs.

It certainly is in SimCity!

Rotate Bane's mask 90 degrees. I see a different resemblance.

Said Obama was snorting coke and learning to be a Marxist.

I thought Obama was already a Marxist. That's why I voted for him.

As for the mainstream media's attempt to usurp the character, Dixon said, "It's ridiculous. Obviously Bane was not created as an attack on Mitt Romney. We never heard of Romney twenty years ago."

Nice. So are republicans finally admitting that Rush is mainstream media or is this some sort of goofy conservative attempt at blaming this stupidity on the "Mainstream MSM liberal media"?

beta_plus: Rush is getting ridiculous on this one. For crying out loud, The Dark Knight was a defense of the Bush's War on Terror..

JerseyTim: See, this is the craziest part of Limbaugh's comments. The Dark Knight was essentially an allegory for the War on Terror with Batman playing the role of George W. Bush. He was the president we deserve, not the one we need right now. It's no coincidence that The Dark Knight Rises takes place eight years later.

If ever there was a reason to use this, it is this post.

Cocaine is elitist.

Republicans are such experts on space and time that they think that IF Stephen Hawking were born in England, that he would have been dead by now because of their terrible health system over there.

Also, how else do you explain Romney's having 2 completely opposite opinions on every issue? He is both for gay marriage and against it, pro choice and pro life, etc...

Romney is an expert at quantum physics and is demonstrating the schrodinger's cat paradox.

HighOnCraic: AdolfOliverPanties: Sure...the character was created 20 years ago, but the decision by Christopher Nolan and the studio to use Bane in the film was made much more recently.

I would not be surprised at all if Limbaugh and his dittoidiots use that as the response to the "Bane was created 20 years ago" message.

And I guess the decision to use Bane in 1997's "Batman and Robin" was made because. . . Damn, I'm having trouble squeezing that into the conspiracy. I give up.

It was part of the plan to insert RINO Schwarzenegger into the California governorship, thus having a Hollywood mole in the state government. Wheels within wheels man.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: You really thought about that pretty easy joke based on the fact that Romney makes his decisions at random far, far too much.

Hell, he's an Etch-A-Sketch, just shake him and draw a new villain.

Willie Geist would like to submit a retraction to the airwaves. It will read: "MSNBC apologizes for any harm caused by Rush Limbaugh's lies, projection, and utter bloviating crap. We of course did not sponsor, produce or distribute and of this sophomoric cable access tripe, but Mr. Limbaugh is a threat to punditry everywhere. MSNBC may not be squeaky clean in the punditry game, but we're pretty sure we'd get the political ideology right of someone accused of clandestinely supporting the other side."

Nah, Harvey was charismatic and fair. He's more like the Killer Moth. I'll list my reasons below:

1) He plays the role of Batman on the villains side
2) He fought to strengthen corruption
3) He's basically a crazier Bruce Wayne
4) He has no strong convictions
5) He's lamer than hell
