Limbaugh thinks new Batman movie is a liberal conspiracy

On Tuesday's Rush Limbaugh show, Rush made this charge about the film, The Dark Knight Rises:

"Do you think it is accidental that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane? .... So this evil villain in the new Batman movie is named Bane. And there's discussion out there as to whether or not this was purposeful and whether or not it will influence voters. It's going to have a lot of people, ....The audience is going to be huge. A lot of people are going to see the movie. And it's a lot of brain-dead people -- entertainment, the pop culture crowd -- and they're going to hear Bane in the movie and they're going to associate Bain."

Just in case you don't know, Bain is the name of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's former venture capital company Bain. The company has been in the news for its corporate raiding and outsourcing of jobs.

Here's a funny piece by Rachel Maddow. On Wednesday, Rush back tracked because he looked like a big fat idiot. Rachel called him out by saying that's not what he said on Tuesday. Video.
