This idiot doesn't even realize that the creator of Bane wasn't the writer of the movie.

Rush Limbaugh: Bane’s Creator Weighs In
By: Russ Burlingame
on July 17, 2012
Not long after Rush Limbaugh was quoted by The Hollywood Reporter
this afternoon as asserting that the use of longtime DC Comics villain Bane in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises was in fact a subtle jab at Bain Capital co-founder Mitt Romney and his Presidential bid, ComicBook.com
reached out to the character’s creator, Chuck Dixon, for comment.
“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.”
Dixon is, as he points out himself, one of the most well-known conservatives in mainstream comics. While he doesn’t seem to believe there’s a political axe to grind behind choosing Bane as the villain at all, he does point out that if there was one, it actually seems more likely that the film is a comment on popular protest movements of the Left.
“As for his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, Bane is a force for evil and the destruction of the status quo. He’s far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you’re looking to cast him politically. And if there ever was a Bruce Wayne running for the White House it would have to be Romney.”
From what I witnessed of the Occupy movement, Bane and his earthquake machine are slightly more…forceful than the OWS crowd. Obviously there’s not that much of a gap between occupying a public park and wrecking havoc across the city of Gotham. When will some leftwing television personality start complaining that Bane is an attempt to smear Occupy Wall Street?
Dixon also showed up on the nationally syndicated radio program Schnitt Show
to refute Limbaugh’s claims, pointing out that he was a lifelong conservative.
