Back in January, I noted that the main villain of this summer's The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, which is a homophone for Mitt Romney's former employer, Bain Capital. I predicted this would cause some trouble for Mitt Romney. And here comes the Big Republican Drama Queen, Rush Limbaugh, predicting a liberal conspiracy:
"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 [sic]?"
Never mind that Christopher Nolan started making this movie in 2011, or that Bane was created by a writer who is one of comics' most outspoken conservatives. Let Rushie gasp and clutch his pearls over this, though—it continues to make Republicans look whiny and out-of-touch.
