Desperate acts for desperate operatives
It seems there’s a new Batman movie set for release and its arch-villain is a character named Bane. It also seems there’s going to be an election in November.
From the Washington Examiner:
“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.
Unless Romney stumbles badly between now and election day, expect him to squish Obama like a grape (and in another Dark Knight tie-in, for the Barry Oh! myth to end).
When the Obama operatives are reduced to saying the character Bane is a metaphor for Mitt Romney—totally contrary to the actual storyline, by the way—they’re signaling intellectual surrender.
