Limbaugh's attempt to consider the Villain name "Bane" with Romney's old firm "Bain" made him an even bigger laughing stock. And that is all it's politics until that murder hobo in Colorado shot up that movie theatre.

This thread RISES again

Did TDKR affect the choice for voting for Obama again?
Maybe it's lucky Batman vs Superman got pushed for 2016, another election year, must help voters select the better president that time as well

Especially strange considering Bane in the movie acted as the leader of an extreme "Occupy Wall Street"-type mindset (going so far as to actually hold "Wall Street" hostage and take down the stock exchange). He was basically the exact opposite of what people accuse Mitt Romney of being.

I think TDK might have had some influence on forming people's opinions this time, I know it did mine.
I think Obama was elected primarily because people wanted a huge change to what had come before. I'm not an American so I can't judge whether or not he lived up to those changes or not, but as a UK citizen I feel more comfortable with Obama as President than I ever did with Bush. That said, maybe it's because the media had some influence over my perspective...

I am a fan of the Daily Show so I am constantly reminded of Obama's failures. However none of them seem that bad to how Bush was ridiculed when in office.

Just some thoughts!

I'm friend with Nolan's caterer, and he told me it was Goyer's idea to write TDK story in order for Obama to win. So I say yes.

This is why people think Batman fans are crazier than your average fan.

Alot of people didn't pick up on this, but with TDK, Christopher Nolan has created more than just your average comic book, gee-whiz adventure, but rather he has crafted a multi-layered crime film noir love story with a message. To alot of people, especially kids my age who grew up in Bush's America, TDK is kind of like our Woodstock. I think alot of the intense rebellion seen in Heath Ledger's brilliant performance as the Joker motivated some new voters to hit the ballots yesterday.

I'm not an idiot.


I have heard tale of this post before, but never seen it with mine own eyes.

TDK reminds me of Obama. A lot of hype initially, only later to discover the flaws.

The Occupy Movement was a waste, yet depicting them as terrorists is a bit overboard. People who don't like the system aren't violent anarchists, either.

Most people still think anarchy is the same as chaos. Which it is not.

I know what anarchy is. I'm saying rulers create chaos because there are no laws governing them, so they can do whatever they want (within reason). You cannot have two different sets of rules governing people. It's obvious that we live in a corrupt world ruled by corporations and governments that have too much power, and this power creates chaos which upsets the peaceful balance that an anarchist society (no rulers) would otherwise be.
