Rush Limbaugh: ‘Do You Think That It Is Accidental’ That The New Batman Villain Is Named ‘Bane’?

It looks like Rush Limbaugh is yet another political pundit taking time out of his life to seriously consider the political ramifications of the villain in the new Batman movie being named “Bane” which just so happens to sound the same as the corporation Mitt Romney used to run. But Limbaugh isn’t just concerned about the effect. He’s also asking the important question; “Why?” After pretending that he didn’t know the name of the film (Come on, Rush. We know you’ve got your IMAX tickets reserved! Everyone does!), Limbaugh asked his listeners if this “coincidence” could possibly be an accident.

Holy conspiracy theory, Batman!

RELATED: Political Analysts Are Now Seriously Linking Romney’s Bain To The Dark Knight Rises Villain

From Limbaugh’s radio show:

“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 Bain?

You may think it’s ridiculous, I’m just telling you this is the kind of stuff the Obama team is lining up. The kind of people who would draw this comparison are the kind of people that they are campaigning to. These are the kind of people that they are attempting to appeal to.”

The implication here, if I’m correct (which I’ve occasionally not been), seems to be that the Obama team purposefully made up the Bain controversy knowing that people would confuse the two.

Why stop there?! If sneaky Democrats could put guns in Mexico purely as a long conspiracy to make American guns illegal, who’s to say this whole Bane character isn’t part of a brilliant Lib plot?

I know what you’re saying. You’re saying, “Jon. I’m a Batman expert. I know that Bane was created way back in 1993.” Well, think about it, reader? What year was the year Mitt Romney first start thinking about getting into politics? 1993!

“By 1993, Romney had been thinking about entering politics, partly based upon Ann’s urging and partly to follow in his father’s footsteps.”

They’ve been plotting this the whole time!

You may think I’m crazy, but just wait till the 2016 election when the Democrats are fully prepared to destroy dark horse GOP candidate Sen. Thomas A. Twoface.
