Rush Limbaugh’s Stupid Batman Conspiracy Theory
Everyone excited for The Dark Knight Rises? Well, if you're a fan of Rush Limbaugh, you'd best forget it even exists.
According to Limbaugh, that fount of all inanity, the liberal, godless media, Hollywood and Batman are all trying to bring the Mittster down.
On his show the other day, he said: “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?”
Uh, yes. That's pretty much the definition of "accidental." Or, we might add, "coincidence."
Let’s forget for a second that the character and the movie were created long before Mitt Romney ever entered the race and just look at the word Bane. Although a homonym (that means it’s different but sounds the same) to Bain, Bane actually has its own origin and meaning.
Here, let me Google that for you. Right, according to dictionary.com, one of the meanings of Bane is “a person or thing that ruins or spoils.” I did a check of other dictionaries and nowhere could I find the definition, “A way to ruin Mitt Romney according to our evil plan, see also: bwaaahaha.”
So, naming an evil character Bane, as in someone who messes crap up, seems like a more plausible reason for naming a character "Bane" than a complicated and obscure conspiracy to bring down someone who, at the time of the villain’s creation, was just a mere rich kid, dreaming of tying dogs to roofs.
