    Of course, the character of Bane has been in Batman comics since 1993, and this is the second time they've had the character appear in a film. (The first being the awful "Batman and Robin".) But shhhhh... don't tell Limbaugh. He thinks they planned this out years ago when they started filming in 2009.

    Another tax exempt Media Matters scoop? My wife wanted to watch an inane movie starring Bette Midler and Dennis Farina last night and I sat through it and noted that Hollywood never misses a chance to bring politics into movies including grade B comedies. The Midler character noted that the stodgy character her daughter was marrying was ...gasp....a republican and as it turned out the republican and his republican senator father character were made to be hated. It's simple logic. Anything hollywood comes out with is left wing politics. Media Matters (tax exempt) might cherry pick a Rush comment about the new Batman movie but who really cares except the salivating lefties who are desperate to be insulted by a radio personality?

    More than Media Matters noticed this bit of stupidity.

    The funny part is that Limbaugh didn't know enough about what he was talking about to know

    1) Bane has been a major villian in the Batman Franchise since 1993.

    2) HE's already made an appearence in a Batman movie.

    A day later Rush attacked the "Liberal" media for lying about what he said.
    They showed the video of him saying exactly what he said.

    the pathological liar always does that, say something one day and deny he ever said the next day when the media calls him on it. It doesn't matter to him that his own transcripts prove he is a liar, even after being exposed to the truth, his DittoNutzis will believe his proven lies, and he knows it.

    RUSH: The Tea Party is not even weighing in on the mosque.* The Tea Party's worrying about other things, like jobs and the economy and Obama's single-handed destruction of it.* Imam Hussein Obama mmm, mmm, mmm.* I want to be fair, too.* He probably is the best anti-American president the country's ever had.* So I don't want to be misinterpreted here as just a knee-jerk critic.* Ed Gillespie is the former RNC chairman saying that we should downplay the mosque, don't overplay it here.

    POWERS:* The reason for that is that you have people like Rush Limbaugh referring to him as Imam Hussein Obama.

    RUSH:* No, I have not said Imam Hussein Obama.* I've never thrown Hussein in there, I just said Imam Obama.*

    Wait, Rush was talking about something he knows nothing about? Thats normal..he knows jack shit and seeks to be the victim of Hollywood, the Media, Cholesterol, Elitist etc.

    Playing the Victim is very important to cons...so much so that if they arent attacked they make it up and proclaim they survived said attacks. From the ashes and all that stuff
