|"I am addicted to prescription pain medication"--Rush Limbaugh, in 2003.|
Yesterday the living representation of Jabba the Hut, said the following according to Business Insider:
"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 [sic]?" (Actually the character is named "Bane.")
"This movie, the audience is gonna be huge. A lot of people are gonna see the movie, and it's a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd, and they're gonna hear Bane in the movie and they're gonna associate Bain. The thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, Romney and Bain, that these people will think back to the Batman movie, "Oh, yeah, I know who that is." (laughing) There are some people who think it'll work. Others think you're really underestimating the American people to think that will work."
I know, right?
I mean how simple minded, and brain damaged, do you have to be to think that a movie which first advertised its main bad guy back in May of 2011, had simply had the precognitive abilities to foresee that Mitt Romney would be the nominee, and that his work with Bain Capital would be a problem for the candidate the EXACT same tie that this movie made its debut? (By the way the character was first introduced in the Knightfall" story arc back in 1993. Coincidentally a full year BEFORE Mittens first decided to enter politics.)
Of course this whole thing is ridiculous, but it is made even MORE ridiculous by the fact that the two creators of Bane are two of the few conservatives even in the comic book field:
“The idea that there’s some kind of liberal agenda behind the use of Bane in the new movie is silly,” Dixon told ComicBook.com. “I refuted this within hours of the article in the Washington Examiner suggesting that Bane would be tied to Bain Capital and Mitt Romney appearing. Bane was created by me and Graham Nolan and we are lifelong conservatives and as far from left-wing mouthpieces as you are likely to find in comics.”
Look I know that the Right Wing idiots are in a blind panic right now as they are watching their chosen GOP candidate (That virtually NONE of them really wanted!) get his ass handed to him time and time again. But THIS kind of bizarre conspiracy theory just makes them all seem like they are out of their freaking minds. And THAT can't be true about them, can it?
Personally I have NO idea how any of them could ever have believed that this Batman villain had ANYTHING to do with Mitt Romney.
