Democrats: Hey, in Batman? Yeah, The New Movie? There's a Villain Named Bane, So, You Know. Draw Your Own Conclusions.

Great strategy.

One problem: Bane may sound like "Bain," but when Bane talks, he talks like Obama. The whole plot of the movie is Bane's attempt at "hope and change," by which we mean violent revolution against the capitalist class.

Do they not know this, or do they actively want that association?

This summer's much-anticiapted Hollywood blockbuster, "The Dark Knight Rises," is getting an unusual boost from Democrats and other foes of Mitt Romney who are eager to tie the Gotham crushing villain to the GOP presidential candidate. Their angle: the mask-wearing, "Venom" gas breathing bad guy has a name that sounds just like Romney's former investment firm that President Obama has been blasting as a jobs killer.

"Bane" is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president's assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.

"It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood," said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. "Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society," he added.

Ah. And I guess we should ignore the fact that Bane's army of rabble is actually practicing redistribution of wealth -- something Obama supported, in a rare moment of candor, when asked about taxes by Joe Wurtzlebacher.

By the way-- "highly intelligent, with an intelligent father and offshore interests" sounds more like Batman, dickhead.

I kind of think they really are going for the "Revolution" vibe here.
