Limbaugh Claims Dark Knight Movie Villain Bane Is A Secret Jab At Mitt Romney

Another laughable conspiracy theory from Rush Limbaugh.
Rush Limbaugh has come under the impression that the villainous Bane, played by Tom Hardy in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Batman's most destructive nemesis yet, is a dig at Bain Capital, the financial services company once headed by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that's featuring prominently in President Barack Obama's campaign ads. Hmm, this might be more of a headscratcher than “Inception.” "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 lamented on his syndicated radio show today.
Another conservative quoted in the above-linked story wonders if the Batmobile was "made in China." Because Obama is Batman, one presumes. Comic fans point out that the Bane character first appeared in print almost twenty years ago.
