"Bane" is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president's assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.

"It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood," said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. "Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society," he added.

That wasn't Rush making something up. The Democratic strategists were already contemplating that connection

They're all idiots.

Bane is Bane. End of story.

Limbaugh thinks Bane has four eyes and breathes fire, he's an idiot and doesn't know what he's talking about.

"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?”

Dear God, Rush Limbaugh is the most ignorant and idiotic human being on the planet.

Just ignore him, the only people that listen to Limbaugh are liberals looking for something to slam conservatives on.

you know whats the funny thing,he later tried to apologize and say,NO YOU MISUNDERSTOOD ME,why do assheads like him try to bring comics into politics...notice later,after he got the negative criticism,he then apologized,and said,that was the assumption they were gonna make...but he is the one who made that assumption,he is the one who clearly said it...he even said it,B-A-N-E,and bain,what is the coincidence?,then we he figured out 1993,he tried to work around it and say,that is not what i said,but he clearly said that,then said,bruce wayne is clearly a republican,batman never even states,or implies that he was republican or democrat,rush limbaugh,god knows you annoy me,and even jesus himself will say you need to die and not come back (if jesus could say that)

I tried to be at least a little surprised, but I couldn't. There are simply to many sheep on both sides that will answer the call to arms by the talking heads, no matter how stupid it is

@cameron83: To be perfectly honest there really is no difference. Each want power over the other, they both want the government to control every part of our lives. They differ on only a few key points, but even those get cloudy when you really look deep at both of them and that's what's really killing the US is the facade of choice.

A fair plan if you consider the 2 evils equal, I consider one to be less evil at least in ideology so I'll probably vote for someone because not voting would be a vote for something I believe in even less then what I'm voting for

I'm guessing that 50 things on that list basically equate to "Stay the hell away from windows" and "Make sure your personal guard aren't from Rome "

Basically, liberals believe in government regulating as much as possible, while conservatives believe in government only regulating what is specifically spelled out in the constitution.

I've had to avoid reading into politics too much as of day. It simply upsets me and causes me to feel that even with my vote things still feel futile.

And Neo Cons believe in a theocracy regulating everything and everyone but a small group of the most powerful private citizens, backed by a massive and publicly funded military. I miss conservatives. The joke is that Bane spends the first half of the film spewing far left sound bites that he spends the rest of the film undermining by his actions (which are so extreme they are hard to describe as right or left in any but the loosest terms), while Batman has always been a far right character, and remains depicted as such, for better and for worse.
