"Mitt Romney is my homeboy". Via Fotopedia.
I don't know Rush, that seems like a stretch. Then again, maybe Obama knew this was going to happen in 1993 when the Batman villain was created. Yeah, it just makes too much sense. Obama's team of secret communist psychics planted the seed of a mudslinging campaign 19 years before said campaign even got started. They created the villain, pulled strings to make sure the Satanists at Warner Bros. hired Christopher Nolan to reboot Batman as a gun hating democrat, and bribed Nolan with three Hawaiian islands to make Bane the villain in the third movie. That must be why the movie includes a line from Bane saying, "When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to die". He was talking about Gotham factories to hard working factory workers that Mitt Romney in no way laid off! No sir, not that true American. He's so American, he doesn't even know what a soccer ball is. But if he saw one, he would instinctly hate it.
Moments before the ball caused the BP oil spill.
Sarcasm aside, is Rush Limbaugh that out of touch? I know he is a racist, sexist, homophobic, pain killer addicted, hateful bigot the size of Pluto, but does he actually believe the things he says? The connection he thinks is there doesn't exist. It's about as likely as the Avengers brainwashing us into hating special ops military units because Nick Fury assembled a team that includes a scientist who probably believes in evolution and is also a dangerous rage monster who can destroy a city by himself. Plus, that movie makes us think America's enemies are lead by a demi-god with an elaborate hat! It's a ploy to make us hate the Pope! I bet Captain America was born in Canada too!
Actually, the Avengers analogy isn't very good. Limbaugh obviously knows America's enemies are gay sex and women who leave the kitchen.
"If only I stopped Loki before he gave that lady an abortion."
The funniest part of this is that even if there was a connection between the Batman villain Bane and Mitt Romney, Limbaugh is just upset that the connection was made. The fact that Nolan would be calling Mitt Romney a villain indirectly in this case? NOT AN ISSUE. He's okay with that I guess, but this is a guy who probably thought Christians were the good guys during the Crusades. The connection wouldn't even be an issue if, you know, Mitt Romney didn't take inspiration from comic villains while working at Bain Capital. If only Romney would have replaced all his employees with penguins, then Limbaugh could complain about Batman Begins instead and how that movie did not accurately portray Romney's platform of "more penguins with back mounted rockets for everybody".
The Dark Knight Rises has absurdly high expectations (so high that I think the movie will come up a little short for me) and is expected to rival the Avengers in box office sales. However, if the movie has even a slight influence on the presidential race, I will eat a light bulb. Rush Limbaugh is insane, this is not news, but this opinion on a Batman villain seems crazy for even the craziest of "Obama is an alien from the planet SocialistTaxTopiaVille and his healthcare law makes George Washington cry" crazy people.
Even the Joker thinks Limbaugh is crazy, although when he heard of what Limbaugh said, he nearly laughed to death. Laughing at what he says is probably the best option though. Rush Limbaugh everybody! Making the Joker look sane.
Disclaimer: This article is satirical and Rush Limbaugh isn't nearly as relevant as people think he is. He has to keep saying crazy things for people to pay attention. It's the only way a Gamorrean from Star Wars can have a job on the radio.
