Ever since perpetually medicated ham hock Rush Limbaugh decided to shoot off at the mouth again and cry liberal conspiracy on everyone involved with the making of The Dark Knight Rises, it was only a matter of time before someone mashed up some Mitt Romney quotes with the trailer for the upcoming film, wasn’t it?

If you haven’t heard, Limbaugh declared on his Tuesday radio program that it was no coincidence that the villain in the last installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman reboot was named “Bane.”

Bain Capital – Mitt Romney’s company – Hollywood conspiracy – get it?

Here’s what he said:

“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 Bane?”

Nevermind the fact that Bane actually appeared in print back in the early 90’s and…oh my god why are we even arguing this point?

I guess the only good thing to come out of this, other than a hearty guffaw, is that I’m sure this isn’t the last Romney/Bane supercut we’ll see this summer (via Gotcha Media blog):

Rush has backpedaled on his original comments, saying that he never really said that and he only meant to show how Democrats with use the connection this election season.

And as a bonus, here’s Bane as the head of Bain Capital, way before Rush went off the deep end surprised nobody by saying something nuclear-level crazy:

    Terrific Video!!! What Mitt and his company do should be illegal… at best, it is immoral. Romney is a Vampire in Mormon Clothing and under his leadership, Bain gutted companies, sucking them dry and leaving families in shambles without work or a means to provide for their children. Is this the type of leader we want?

    FUNNNYYY!!!!! Too GOOD!!!!

    Very funny and TRUE…Limbaugh actually was WRONG because the Bain creator Chuck Dixon say Bain and his guys are more like the OCCUPY WALLSTREET and their LIBERAL supporters….

    Oops messed up that narrative.
    Its already show that libs were planning to run using these ‘similarities’ but probably not as a PRE PLANNED conspiracy.

    But funny how LIBERALS and the media HATE rush and tell people NOT TO LISTEN to him….yet HANG ON HIS everyword to make a living…

    I stopped listening to rush when he said, “you can’t believe a word that’s said from a drug addicts mouth” what a hypocrat. from the Iran hostage situation to the Iran/contra fiasco to the invasion of Iraq to the war in Afganistan/poppyland,the Republicans have proven time and again that they are the worst kind of drug dealers, the one’s that don’t do the drugs but instead just prey on the weaknesses of others who do. I’m a conservative by heart, but I will never be a republican.
