    Link: Rush Limbaugh Sees Conspiracies Everywhere - Apparently Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. had an ulterior motive when choosing Bane as the villain for Batman.

    Rush Limbaugh, Christopher Nolan and Bane. I don`t know who any of these people are, and so can safely avoid what I suspect will be a tinfoil hat tirade.

    @MacGuffin: By taking a pass on this submission, MacGuff, you`re passing up an opportunity to get a glimpse into how the opinions of a few I-A-B`ers--and millions upon millions of Americans--are formed.

    Seriously, I`d suggest you listen to this. Rush Limbaugh has ENORMOUS influence over the far-right in America. If you listen to this audio clip, you`ll see why he`s so effective:

    (1) He`s got a great voice for radio: jovial but dramatic, with a lot of variety in pace and volume. He sounds like an authoritative, funny, friend.

    (2) He weaves a tapestry of thought (misguided thought) that draws the listener along.

    (3) He uses a combination of humor, outrage, and friendliness that flows over you and gives you little space for your own thinking.

    Someday I`ll have to find a clip for you of Rush Limbaugh going off against his biggest enemy--liberals--and you`ll see what I`m up against over here.

    It was to my understanding, and let me say first I don`t care for B-man at all, that "Bane" was a B-man villain from other, much older B-man stories/comics. As far as I know.. they didn`t just name the villain "Bane" in the wake of this election. It has always been "Bane" probably before Bain Capital was a company.

    What a complete and utter moron. If he actually bothered to watch the movie at all, he would see that there is some political stuff in there, but the name of the villain just isnt one of them.

    Just Rush showing everybody once again that he knows absolutely nothing.

    Sigh. The "Bane" character has been around since 1993. Also, here`s Rush Limpdick trying to deny he was making a connection here. This guy is a moron of the highest order, and if you listen to him, so are you.

    keith2, Bain capital was created in 1984 whereas the Batman villain Bane was first introduced in 1993. He was not named for the Bain Capital at all though, but for the meaning of the word which is "Death/destroyer" or possibly because bane can also be a poison. This makes sense if you know the character. He is actually a rather interesting character, and I would recommend you read up on him if you ever get a Batman itch.

    Rush Limbaugh is jut an ignorant fool who is a good entertainer for people who need someone to follow.

    I saw the movie last night at the drive-in.
    If you don`t expect too much, it`s a good movie.
    Slow slow slow - car chase - slow slow slow again.
    And not much Batman in it. A lot of Bruce Wayne angst.
    Anne Hathway does a good job as Catwoman. They
    reinvented that character, it`s not the evil cat you`re
    used to.

    BANE is excellent.

    Pretty sure this movie was cast and set for production before Romney even announced he was going to be running.

    Also, listening to one single guy sitting in a room vocalizing every thought that pops into his head for three straight hours can`t be healthy.

    this guy is so far off his rocker...BANE has been a character for about 20 something years and was the villian that killed batman or broke his back or whatever back in the 90s...

    Rush is a complete moron.

    Rush is brilliant!
    With absolutely no talented whatsoever he has marketed
    himself and made a fortune. His job is to stir things up,
    get people to listen so he can sell ad time. He`s very
    good at it. Sure, what he says is stupid but that`s
    not the point. He`s not there to inform or even to
    entertain. He`s there to make himself money, and he`s
    very good at it.

    He asked a question, asked if it was an accidental similarity. He didn`t try and create a `conspiracy`.
    What he was alluding to was that the Obama camp might try and link the two and use it against Romney.

    Rush said that Romney was the rich hero, like Batman, not the evil Bane character.

    That`s a pretty weak excuse, and still a dumb reason to bring it up in the first place.

    Crakr... oh come on! Really?
    Rush absolutely implied that the "Bane" character
    was so named to negatively reflect on Romney.
    It was an obvious, stupid thing to say and making
    excuses for him makes you look just as ignorant.
    And I know you`re not.

    CrakrJak is correct. Perhaps if the rest of you actually heard what was said rather than react to hearsay and pieces taken out of context, you wouldn`t typify yourselves as the very people he describes. Remember CJ, never argue with an idiot.

    It appears that ALL the liberals here listened to the first 30 seconds ONLY.
    Or clicked the link and read the first paragraph ONLY.
    Typical.

    He even quotes a news report WHICH MAKES THE CONNECTION of Bain = Bane in the "public mind".

    Obama`s crew attacked Mrs Romney for owning a horse! A horse she bought, btw, as help in treating her Multiple Sclerosis FFS! They attacked her for that!

    jamie76: You`re demonstrating how democrats hang their `theories` on things taken out of context.

    Rush clearly noted that `some people`, aka liberals who don`t know any better, will try and make a connection between the two. He DID NOT say there was a conspiracy with the makers of the movie.

    But no, you liberals didn`t listen to the whole thing, you listened to the first minute and hit the pause button.

    If you had listened to the whole thing, you would`ve known that his point was that the democrats would continue to hammer Bain Capital in the hopes that the `sheep` would mistakenly associate it with the movie character.

    Yes, unfortunately many democrats are just that sheepishly stupid. Proof of that was evident in exit questions asked of Obama voters in 2008.

    You men the way `some people`, aka conservatives who don`t know any better, made a connection from Obama to the Joker? Because it`s only fair when Republicans do it, not when you do it back at them.

    @ Crakrjak & 5cats - you`re right. I didn`t watch the whole thing.

    Still, suggesting that democrats will "continue to hammer Bain Capital in the hopes that the `sheep` would mistakenly associate it with the movie character" is weak, presumptuous, and not worthy of anyone`s time or consideration.

    @ 5Cats & CrakrJak:
    Oh, c`mon! Nobody is going to "mistakenly" associate Bain & Bane (though we may get some glee from the homonym!). I`m a liberal, btw, and I DID watch the whole painfully stupid thing. I think Limbutt has now done the most to associate the two, frankly.
    @ Gerry:
    Good point about the fairness issue. Unfortunately, though, both camps tend to engage in the same type of nonsense.
