    Bane is a Batman villain from the comics, and has been for several years. A "bane" is something that is toxic or repellent, such as wolfsbane, which supposedly poisons or repels wolves.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    You all know this was first mentioned by an Obama campaign staffer about three days ago on Drudge, right? Rush was commenting on it, that was all.

    They chose Bane because Pigman was busy.

    Bane made first appearance in Batman: Vengeance of Bane #1 (January 1993).

    Explain it some more.

    So Bane has been around for a while. Are you saying that a Barry drone tried to run with the Bane thing as a "point at Mitt and laugh" thing? And that Rush was commenting on that and not that Rush was wearing the tinfoil regarding the Bane name?

    Or not?

    I need to read more comics. Look at all this socio-political-cultural stuff I am missing out on.

    How do we know? Well, they tried to exploit Batman in two ways. First, they tried to suggest that Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s old hedge fund, was evil … just like the villain in the new Batman movie, who happens to be named Bane. “It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” Democratic advisor Christopher Lehane told the Washington Examiner. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society.

    Rush explains it best.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.



    Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

    From what I've read posted here Rush seems perfectly sane as usual.
    How is obama working out for you?
