Limbaugh thinks Dark Knight Rises' Bane is named such on purpose?

In the first hour of Rush Limbaugh's show today, he actually wondered if the release of the upcoming Dark Knight Rises wasn't so coincidental -- because the villain in the film is named ... Bane.

Ye gads. First of all, Bane was created back in 1993. Second, Dark Knight Rises has been in the works for a few years now. And lastly, not the least of which, many have opined that Bane and his actions are actually an allegory to the Occupy movement (just Google "Dark Knight Rises Occupy movement"), which could be seen is a detriment to Boss Obama, not Mitt Romney.

Conspiratorial nonsense.

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter picked up on Rush's silly idea yesterday as well.

I like Limbaugh from time to time but I agree that he's more than a little off-base here.
