It seems that Romney’s Bain/Bane issue is ramping up with the release of the Dark Knight Rises this week. NYMag says, “there is now chatter about Mitt Romney‘s Bain Capital and its more sinister homonym: Bane, the antagonist of The Dark Knight Rises. And, believe it or not, people see an association there. Jon Stewart made light of the point on his show, but some political advisers and analysts are now taking the comparison seriously and speculating that it may have an actual impact on the campaign. 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,” said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane.
