Rush sees anti-Mitt conspiracy in 'Dark Knight'

Rush says 'Dark Knight' bad guy is a plot against Romney
It's another Hollywood pinko plot against Republican presidential soon-to-be nominee Mitt Romney.
As Robin might have once said, Holy cow, Batman! But pay attention, here's Rush's thinking:
The movie's villain is a mask-wearing, gas-breathing terrorist named Bane. Bain Capital is the investment firm Romney used to run before he got into politics. Get it?
"Do you think it is accidental that the name of the really vicious firebreathing, four-eyed whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane?" Limbaugh said Tuesday on his radio show.
I wonder if Rush Limbaugh knows that Bane is an actual word that has been around a lot longer than Mitt Romney's Bain Capital and looking at the definitions, Bane is a pretty good name for an evil bad guy.
bane: (bn)
1. Fatal injury or ruin:

2. a. A cause of harm, ruin, or death:
    b. A source of persistent annoyance or exasperation:
3. A deadly poison.

So the question is, why did Mitt choose the word Bain for his private equity firm in the first place  knowing that the word is a homonym for a something sinister.   Maybe he chose Bain as a subliminal message to people on the other side of negotiations that his firm was going to be source of persistent annoyance and if necessary even inject deadly poison.
