There’s no time to introduce this post with background information about Rush Limbaugh’s sparking record of never saying anything ridiculous or incendiary and always knowing the Real Truth because first of all WE KNOW, and second of all, he has made some INCREDIBLE DISCOVERIES of what all of us sheeple thought was a simple homonym in Barack Obama’s Dark Knight Rises. OPEN YOUR BRAINS! From Premiere Radio Networks’ The Rush Limbaugh Show:

Have you heard, this new movie, the Batman movie — what is it, the Dark Knight Lights Up or something? Whatever the name of it is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises, Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? 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’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time, the release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental, that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane? … Anyway, so this evil villain in the new Batman movie is named Bane. And there’s now 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, 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 are going to associate Bain.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! Ahhh, he figured it out! The jig is up. Rush Limbaugh is an incredible man with an incredible bain I MEAN BRAIN and we will probably never be able to get past him. Pack it up, you guys. Pack it up, pack it in. The Dark Knight Lights Up No More. (Via The Superficial)

  1. dude sounds high.

  2. He should be ashaimed of himself.

  3. Just wait until he finds out Catwoman is on the pill.

  4. Also, Obama went back in time to guide the etymology of the word ‘bane’, using Linguistics to strike a blow against Romney.

    • I’m pretty sure the biggest favor we can do to Mittens Romney, to make up for this injustice, is to change “the bane of my existence” to “the Rush of my existence.” It works just as well.

  5. Rush seems like a guy who would have enjoyed Batman Forever.

  6. This is why we need the strong leadership of Beetleguise Herman Cain.

  7. I wonder if he saw V for Vendetta?

  8. Honestly, this is a compliment to Liberals more than anything. Clearly they are such master planners as to have DC Comics introduce a character into the Batman canon a full year before Romney ever ran for any public office. THEN, keep that character relevant for a full 20 years, THEN announce the charater and go into production a full year before the Republican primaries, just on the off-chance that Romney became the presumptive Republican candidate in 2012.

    (The one flaw in this plan is that the average American thinks that Obama is Muslim and that Mitt Romney’s full name is “Mittens.” So I’m not quite sure how a homonym of an evil Batman character and a global management company is going to move the needle in a significant way for the Liberal agenda. But fucking kudos on that advanced planning. )

  9. I think my Fandango is broken, I can’t find tickets for The Dark Knight Lights Up within a 50 mile radius. Must be sold out…

  10. Rush Limbaugh is full of crap. Anyone who’s anyone knows that Bane is a character developed in the mid-1990′s by Chuck Dixon and Doug Moensch as a foil to Batman who was so vicious that he actually broke Batman’s back, making way for a more “extreme” Batman called Azrael to take Batman’s place. It was less a political conspiracy and more an editorial direction to boost comics sales in an era of comics when sales were driven by slaking the bloodthirst of twelve-year old boys and comics were being touted as a speculative investment opportunity.

    Ugh. Mom! I’ll be right up! Just a few more turns in Civ III and I develop gunpowder!

  11. I bet that Kevin Scarecrow (R-DE), Franklin Penguin (R-IA), Lamar Riddler (R-OR), and Ras al Ghul W. Joker IV (R-NM) are breathing a sigh of relief they didn’t run this year.

  12. Well, Bane is shown as breaking billionaire’s backs over his knee. Clearly a metaphor for higher taxes

  13. Wait until he learns that Bane’s real name is Hallie Burton.

  14. Liberal plot to destroy Romney campaign via comic book movie = perfectly plausible.

    Romney lying about his involvement in the shady dealings of his former employer = crackpot conspiracy theory.

    Is my math right? It’s been years since Talk Radio Trig.

  15. What a raging boner this guy is.

  16. well more people probably are going to see this movie than will vote in november

  17. You guys, I think I know what happened. Rush Limbaugh looked at Videogum, saw the entry only entries below this one (the one with a Bane mask on Mitt Romney) and went “A-HA! I knew it!”.

    Also, this:

  18. jeez louise rush you never heard of a SPOILER alert??

  19. little known fact: The Dark Knight‘s political sub-textual themes of abusing power, and risking one’s ideals in order to confront an evil almost didn’t make it into the finished film when Dick Cheney was unavailable to play the Penguin.

  20. Rush Limbaugh really needs to learn to use Wikipedia.

  21. Wait, but, also, isn’t there a whole OWS sub-plot in the new Batman movie? And like, isn’t there a whole plot about how Catwoman is like, some kind of bandit, who wants to steal from the rich? Because they control the city, or something?

    Look I don’t even LIKE Chris Nolan’s Batman movies (I have expressed my pro-Tim Burton stance here before) but if you’re looking for liberal subtexts that could be gathered JUST FROM WATCHING THE TRAILER, the character BANE’s name is like, not even an important one.

  22. I’m surprised Rush dropped the ball on the bigger issue: Why won’t Bruce Wayne release more than 2 years of his past tax records?

  23. I can’t believe no one’s made a Batman: Turn Off the Dark Knight joke yet.

  24. okay as a life long batman fan this infuriates me…. seriously, rush fat fuck limbaugh is trying to claim that BANE (south american bad ass supervillain who crippled batman in the comics) is some how conneccted to Mitt (mom pants) romney’s campaign and it’s a liberal conspiracy. Ugh, i wish that man would just stop talking or overdose on those pain pills he used to love so much. sorry it’s just i’m a batman fan and that pissed my inner geek off something fierce.

  25. “Oh shit, he’s right! I’m going to file that with my folded $20 bill that shows the towers burning.” – TONS of people for some reason.

  26. Rush Limbaugh is gay lol.

  27. He’s just mad he was left out.

  28. He’s spot on. They tried to ruin Arnold Schwarzenegger’s political career too, when he was cast as Mr. Freeze, but the movie was so successful and highly acclaimed it only accelerated his rise to becoming the Governator.

  29. I’m “plugging” Rush:
