Rush Limbaugh would like you to wake up and smell the coffee.

On Tuesday, the talk-radio titan alerted us all to the fact that “The Dark Knight Rises,” the third film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, is the product of a massive left-wing conspiracy. Should you have any doubts, simply note that Mitt Romney’s “evil” private equity empire is called Bain, while the main baddie in “Dark Knight”  is — you knew it — BANE.

“The movie has been in the works for a long time, the release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time,” Limbaugh said. “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?”

While The National Memo‘s Henry Decker predicted the awkward Bain/Bane parallels back in January, he never could’ve imagined that they would be noted in such a paranoid manner.

How deep does the conspiracy go? Here we’ve taken a look at some famous movies as seen through Rush Limbaugh’s conspiratorial eyes:

  • mtooey

    No Bush in office in 1995. Again, medicate the lunatics. Why hasn’t Rush moved to Costa Rico?

    • phantomoftheopera

      please, i’ve been there. they are nice, generous, friendly people. they don’t deserve him!

    • onedonewong

      He wanted to move to baraks birth place keyna but they won’t allow anyone who is a job creator to live there

  • mtooey

    Was Barack Obama alive in the 40’s? My he looks good for his age. This can’t be real.

  • When Pigs Fly! Rush Dumbaugh, needs to change his Coffee; or, see his maid, or his crew in the Alley, behind his place, to get a,”fix!” The Guy sees a Liberal, or RHINO, under every Bush, and behind every Tree!

    Bane was created in the 70’s. Sorry Rush No matter how hard you try, you are still an OBNOXIOUS, OVERBEARING, OVER-DOSING, OVER-REACHING, DRAFT-DODGING, OBVIOUSLY PARANOID, OBESE, OBAMA HATER. Seek help, if you don’t have a health plan maybe the Affordable Health Care Act can help your cause.

    • Rush is elitist, extremist, sexist, racist, misogynist (yes, he carried it further), extortionist, confrontational, hypocritical (as the man is not in the elite he seeks to glorify), and delusional!

      Who’s effective tax rate is 5% higher than barak’s

  • You could loose IQ points just by looking at him.

    • DurdyDawg

      I like that.. AND it’s probably true.. I know it applies to listening, I mean, look at all the dip wads who tune in to his blather. Word has it he’s the zombie leader.

  • highpckts

    Limbaugh should pack up his meds and leave for Costa Rico where he said he’d go. What? Another promise broken by a Republican

  • seymourhiney

    Rush is a drip. The Romney Campaign is drip, drip, dripping. The Republicans plan to make America great by declaring the muffets gay, all movies demonize conservatives.

    The greatness of America is the right of the citizen to express gratitude or disagreement with government at the ballot box. For the Republican controlled states to deny the right to vote, based on trumped up ID requirements that primarily affect the poorest group in America, will only result in a disaster.

    Republicans see conspiracies in everything, they are just trying to dis the Democrats. But like Rove they have such and evil mind they think every one is like them. I ignore this stuff.

  • manuelvillarreal

  • Arvid123

    Conservatives are very good at averting the issue to something petty and stupid. Since their base is stupid, it all makes sense.

  • Don’t you just love the paranoia demonstrated by some of the real wing nuts on the right?

  • Rush Limballs Is The Very Reason Why Most Women Use Birth Control In Fear Of Having A THUG Like Him!!

  • onedonewong

    Unfortunately Rush left out the Bin Laden movie about the seals that has all sorts of classified information and embedded seal operations. The reason why all this access was allowed was based on a sizable campaign by the movies director

    Dammit! I tried, but the laughter just would not go away.. Between chuckles I would like to size this basher up as being possibly the least human like on Earth.. If there is such a thing as aliens from another planet, Rust Limburger would be their poster dweeb. Some body, please! Find this man a real life.
