See this comic book cover? It’s the first issue with Batman villain Bane. It’s from 1993. No big deal, right?
Wrong. If you’re El Rushbo, and your ratings have dipped, IT’S A GODDAMN CONSPIRACY FACTORY! Seriously. Here’s what Rush Limbaugh had to say:

Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. 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?


Or maybe so. This one is just as ridiculous as the bithers. Maybe even more so — so now, super-villain evil genius time-traveler Kenyan Muslim usurper Barack Obama is now a comic book author and illustrator? All this about a guy the right-wing bitches is completely ineffective and can’t get anything done. Let me just say, for someone who can’t accomplish anything, Obama’s accomplished a lot. Gawker breaks it down:

Obviously, Limbaugh deserves to be commended for his groundbreaking work uncovering how in 1993, Obama convinced comic writer Chuck Dixon to create a super-villain named Bane, knowing that two decades later he would be locked in a close presidential election campaign with the obscure son of a moderate Republican governor, at the time making gobs of money in Boston.

Obviously. And I guarantee, there’s at least one dude swearing at work that the new Batman movie is Obama propaganda. 
Is Rush even trying any longer?

    I’ll preface this by saying that Rush is a big fat idiot. I have to say that fact that Bane was introduced in 1993 isn’t...
