This conspiracy has been in the works for nearly 20 years, and took an immense amount of foresight by creators Chuck Dixon, Doug Moench, and Graham Nolan who developed the character in 1993. Clearly, they knew that Mitt Romney would be running for president the same year that Christopher Nolan would end the The Dark Knight Rises trilogy and that Nolan would choose Bane — which sounds like Bain — as the lead villain.

CONSPIRACY. Listen to just the first minute and try to contain your laughter.

That’s a whole new level of dumbshittery. The shame of it is, half of Rush Limbaugh’s huckleberry listeners are buying it.
