For a while it seemed as if that ogre Rush Limbraugh had drained all the fun out of the Bane/Bain coincidence by taking it seriously, claiming that “The Dark Knight Rises” villain Bain was meant as a left-wing attack on Romney’s outsourcing, money-making company Bain. That idea, of course, is so ludicrous that it was quickly turned back on Limbaugh, who became the butt of late-night routines. Funny in spite of himself, he just can’t help handing comedians these gifts.
Here, from “Conan,” is a bit of “The Dark Knight Rises” with some convincing Romney dialogue given to Bane.
And from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” a Batman cartoon with Limbaugh’s actual comments coming from the mouth of his near-perfect avatar, the Penguin.
